Making First Foods Fun

BLW Workshops & Classes

Starting solid food is an important milestone—and one that many parents are equally excited and nervous to reach.

Square One Wellness offers parents a proven guide: the baby-led weaning method encourages self-feeding from the beginning. Combined with sound nutrition information from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the small-group, hands-on classes provide babies with the opportunity to eat real food for the first time in a safe and friendly environment.

The World Health Organization and American Academy of Pediatrics agree in their recommendation that infants be exclusively fed breastmilk or formula until around six months old. Despite this advice, a recent study by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that more than half of all babies in the U.S. are introduced to other foods or drinks earlier than six months.

BLW workshops

Intro to Baby-Led Weaning


Let baby take the lead! Learn the basics of the Baby-Led Weaning (BLW) philosophy from a registered dietitian, along with simple strategies to get started. BLW can help prevent picky eating, reduce allergen risk, save on groceries and supports family meal-times. BLW fosters healthy eating habits through intuitive eating, and encourages babies to join in at the family table and enjoy whole foods from square one.

Recommended for parents to attend when baby is 3-5 months old.

First Food Workshop


The second of two course, is a hands-on, small-group eating course led by a registered dietitian and designed for babies six months or older who are ready to begin their Baby-led Weaning (BLW) journey. Reassess your baby's readiness for solids, learn how to safely introduce allergens, learn the keys to building healthy meals at home and on the go, and identify gagging versus choking. You will leave with the confidence that your baby will thrive at mealtimes. Skip the purées, the stages and the stress.
