Oral Health & Weaning

We have two online sessions coming up on Oral Health and Introducing Solid foods to your baby. During these sessions we will be sharing with you tips and information about caring for babies teeth, and introducing solid foods. 

A babies first teeth may be small and temporary, but they’re important, as they act as placeholders for their adult teethWithout a healthy set of baby teeth, your child will have trouble chewing and speaking clearly. That’s why caring for a babies first teeth and keeping them decay-free is so important.  

Weaning or Introducing solid foods is a big milestone in your babies learning and development. It sets them up for a good start into good nutrition and a healthy balanced diet later in life.  Introducing new tastes and textures to a baby will help encourage them to eat a range of foods. Solid foods help babies to practice lip, tongue and jaw movements, helping support communication and language development. Eating together is also an important social activity.
