Starting Solids Sessions

Is your baby around 12 weeks old? If so then you can expect to receive an invitation soon, from your Health Visitor, to your local Starting Solids Session!

Starting Solids Sessions

About Starting Solids Sessions

Starting Solids Sessions help make weaning fun for you and your baby. Look out for your invite or ask your Health Visitor for further information.

We offer lots of sessions across the city with tips and advice on:

• Preparing to start offering your baby first foods at 6 months old
• How to prepare healthy food your baby will love
• Looking after babies’ teeth
• Encouraging your baby’s language development
• Loads more

A variety of NHS Health Professionals and our colleagues from local organisations come along to provide you with any information and advice you may need, and it’s a great chance to meet and chat with other parents and carers also. We have a community chef who provides a live demonstration to show you how easy it is to prepare healthy first foods for your baby that are kind on your wallet too.

Mums, Dads, carers, Grannies and Granpa’s (and of course, babies!) are all welcome.

The Starting Solids sessions are throughout Glasgow City. Listed are those for South Glasgow. If you require information on another local area, please ask your Health Visitor. Your Health Visitor will invite you to attend when your baby is around 12 weeks old, but attending any time before 6 months is fine and you are able to attend as many sessions as you would like, in any location/venue which is best for you.

Details for South Glasgow are as follows:
*please note that all sessions start promptly and are not "drop in" sessions, so that you don't miss anything!*
