I firmly believe that parents should start solids how they feel most comfortable - whether that be purées, finger foods, or a mixture of both. All have benefits, and doing what feels right for your family is always best. I also don’t want you to get stuck on just a few textures of foods, like always runny purées, or super soft finger foods, for example. This workshop will help you transition to harder textures, without the fear of choking. Sign up now!
