Common Concerns

Low weight

Are you concerned that you or your child may be too skinny? Would you like to (give your child more to) eat but have no appetite?

Post pregnancy diet

Do you want to lose a few pounds that you put on during pregnancy? How do you do this while breastfeeding? How can you eat foods that give you the energy you need without piling on extra weight?

Choking when eating/drinking

Does your child find it difficult to swallow food? Do they cough, choke or gag when they are eating? Are there foods you can’t eat without gagging?

Pale stools

Have you been concerned about the colour of your child’s stools when changing their nappy or helping them to the toilet?


Do you or your child complain of frequent stomach pain? Do they look bloated? Do you experience excessive wind? Does your baby pull his legs up to his tummy when he cries?

Fussy eater

Is your child very selective about what they will and won’t eat? Would you like to encourage them to eat more foods but don’t know how? Are you concerned that they are not getting a balanced diet?


Weaning can seem an overwhelming process especially if you are a first-time mother, a working mother or an unconfident cook. Do you need a helping hand to guide you through step by step?
