If you’re just starting to think about weaning your baby, or you’re in the midst of establishing mealtimes with your toddler, all the information, guidance and advice out there can be a bit… overwhelming. So, we’re here to help!

We’ve teamed up with our friends at doddl to combine our years of experience in mealtimes to bring you Mealtime Matters – a complete hub bursting with information, help and resources to help guide you through your mealtime weaning journey from early weaning to independent eating and everything in between.

You can join at any point in your journey, just find the stage most relevant to you and we’ll be sharing expert advice, helpful hints and real-life experiences from other parents to bring it all to life. Put simply, Mealtime Matters will help make all that overwhelming information a bit more…. digestible.

Follow along on Instagram and Facebook where real parents will be sharing the same challenges and questions as you and taking you along with them on their journey.
