Starting Solids – Food for the First Year
A comprehensive education program that arms you with everything you need to know about introducing solids with your baby.
Hi there! My name’s Nicola and I am the owner of Grub for Kids. I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and mum to 3 young boys.
My aim with Grub is to provide you with reliable and practical advice around feeding your kids. I want to help take at least some of the stress out of what can be a crazy journey of feeding kids.
I am thrilled to introduce our very first online program… Starting Solids – Food for the First Year. This program is perfect for parents who are about to embark on, or perhaps are in the middle of, the first year of their bubs life. Food comes in at around 6 months and I know when it was my first time around, I did not feel ready for it at all!
So my hope with this program is to provide you with an easy to digest resource that will give you all the information you will need when it comes to food for your bubs first year of life.
What is this program all about?
This program is completely online, you can learn at your own pace and come back to it at any time. We cover everything you need to know about starting solids with your bub including:
- When to start solids
- How to know if your baby is ready
- Key nutrients for your baby
- Baby led weaning
- Food allergens
- Eating family foods and much more
In the program we also go through each key developmental stage from starting solids to 1 year of age. We look at the type and texture of food that is appropriate for each stage and how to transition between them.
We have also provided you with sample meal plans to give you even more guidance on how you can structure your bubs food within each developmental stage.
In addition to this, you have access to our recipe library which include 50 tried and tested recipes that will get you through from starting solids into the toddler years and beyond.
When purchasing this program you will also get:
- One place to get accurate information about starting solids
- Increased confidence when it comes to feeding your bub
- Reduced stress about if/why/when your baby is eating/not eating
- More time back in your day as you don’t have to go down the Google rabbit hole
- More time and energy to spend with your bub to enjoy the beginning of their life long journey with food
What are others saying about the program?
“This program is beyond amazing literally covers everything!!! So many interesting points are made in these videos! Things I would never have thought about but now that I know them, make SO much sense! I really do think that this is a MUST for all parents! Even if it’s not your first baby, it would be so good to watch these easy to digest, highly knowledgeable short videos to refresh yourself on important topics to consider when starting to feed your baby! I love how the videos are summarised into dot points and there are printable documents that you can have on the fridge so the information you need is visible and readily available. To learn about choking versus gagging has really made me so much more confident and calm when it comes to feeding my baby! The recipe library is one of my favourite things about this program. I’ve never really been interested in cooking for myself and I struggle to be creative with food so the recipe library makes it so much easier and exciting to create meals for my baby!”– Sophie, mum to Landon
“What a comprehensive guide! Nicola has taken the stress out of starting baby Olly on solids, including everything from allergens to textures and recipes to try. I’m much more confident in understanding how to safely feed my baby what he needs and when.”– Emma, mum to Georgie and Olly
“I found Grub for Kids really helpful when deciding when to upgrade food textures and especially the information and suggestions on food combos, so Reu can get the most out of his small meals. The recipes are also great, simplifying meal times as we often both eat the same thing.”– Hayley, mum to Reu
