What we do…

 

Feeding children can be rather stressful, to put it mildly. Advice can be overwhelming and conflicting, professional support can be difficult to access, and every child needs something different.

That’s why I created Little Messes. In our sessions and courses we take things back to basics, helping you to understand your child’s perspective around food. We focus on discovering food through texture, taste, sound and smell. It’s all light hearted, and it’s always messy.

You’ll leave all of our sessions with practical techniques, solid advice and plenty of shared learning experiences to assist you on your weaning journey. Here’s how you can get involved…

We offer practical, interactive weaning support through:

Group Course

Before you give a child something new to eat you must get into the headspace of the child. Our 4-week group courses help you to do just that. Whether you are a parent or a carer, the sessions will give you confidence with weaning and tackling all the anxieties that go with it.

The courses are currently being run virtually and include:

  • An interactive group Zoom call each week
  • A personally-designed Little Messes reusable weaning kit, sent to your home
  • A 10-minute individual reflection and troubleshooting call with me, at any time within the four weeks
  • Access to our Weaning Queens/Kings Facebook community with regular challenges and activities
  • Whatsapp group support for the duration of the course
  • Email support from me for a year after you finish your course
  • Discount on our group Edible Messy Play sessions

Edible Messy Play

*Currently on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions*

Our Edible Messy Play sessions do what they say on the tin! Group sessions for children to get their hands dirty with 100% edible mess. Each week we focus on a new theme, creating activities with different textures, tastes, smells, and sounds. From edible sand to volcanos of tomato soup, we provide a safe space for children to play with their food. When we make mess, we are making memories!

These sessions occur weekly and last for one hour. There will be facilities to clean your little ones up before leaving.
