New Online Course for Caregivers

There is a new online course for caregivers to help with the transition to solid foods. This course is taught by Speech/Language Pathologists. Here is some information from their website

Introduction to Solids
Learn how to introduce solids to your baby and lay the foundation for life-long healthy eating habits. This class will provide an outline of the various approaches to introducing solids, important skills needed for feeding as well as related developmental milestones, and theories on managing mealtimes in the first two years of life and beyond. In this 90-minute class, you will learn how to create positive mealtimes, support the development of oral motor coordination, sensory processing and self-feeding skills, and manage some of the common challenges during this transition.  This class is appropriate for expectant parents and parents of infants who will soon start or already have begun the transition to solids. Infants in arms are welcome.”
