Meet our Mealtime Matters Ambassadors
We’ve teamed up with real parents to bring to life our Mealtime Matters resources. Follow their journeys with us as they approach weaning for the first time, introduce new foods, try out tasty recipes and tackle all the fun and challenges that weaning can bring!
There will be lots of tips and advice along with possibly a mix of laughter and dramas along the way – we all know what an interesting time weaning can be!
Scroll down to meet our family of Mealtime Matters ambassadors and don’t forget to follow them on socials to keep up to date with how they are getting on!
Hi I’m Charlotte, mum to two gorgeous girls. I’m currently on maternity leave with my youngest daughter Paloma who recently started weaning. My eldest daughter, Peaches, is 2 years old and you can me on Instagram at @peaches_and_paloma where I talk about my weaning journey and general mum-life. I followed baby-led weaning when I started solids with Peaches and loved it and i’m following the same route again with Paloma. I also had to get clued up quickly on allergies and how to spot a reaction and manage it as Peaches (and now Paloma) both have them. I’m doing it all…! Starting out on my weaning journey with Paloma and tackling fussiness with my 2 year old!
Hi, I’m Chris, a first-time dad, navigating the highs and lows of fatherhood, winging it as I go. Laurence is 7 months old and so far, his weaning journey has been an enjoyable experience, although extremely messy!
I am Daisy, mum to two beautiful children. My eldest, Primrose, is going to be three in June. Lenny is 7 months old and absolutely loving eating! Before having children I was a full time primary school teacher. I’m currently on maternity leave and will be teaching part time once again in September. We live in rural Lincolnshire with Daddy (Ben) and our springer spaniel Alfie.
Lenny is doing baby led weaning (Primrose also did) and we are all enjoying the process. I find it absolutely fascinating watching a baby feed themselves! Primrose is more particular now about what she eats and certainly has a sweet tooth (a bit like me) but I continue to expose her to a variety of foods and she often surprises me by trying things I thought she might reject.
Hi i’m Faye, Mummy to Amelia 3 and Albie 8 months.
My daughter Amelia is a massive veggie lover and of course loves the sweet stuff (who doesn’t). Albie loves his milk so is taking a teeny bit longer to get into the swing of solids but we are getting there.
I first started my instagram page a good few months into weaning Amelia and I have not long restarted it up again from the beginning of the weaning process with Albie.
My page is there to give other parents a realistic approach to cooking, baking and selecting appropriate foods along with any difficulties I come across.
Hi i’m Kimberley mum to a lovely 2 year old little boy. I’d describe myself as ‘winging my way through parenthood’😊 A trained lawyer, i’m used to balancing being a mum with working life and i’ve recently taken the plunge to work more as a parenting blogger.
Hi, i’m Lauren an ‘outnumbered’ mum of two boys! Theo, my eldest, is 6 years old and at school and Leon is 1 year old and progressing well through weaning. He’s in the ‘messy’ phase of weaning as he’s exploring lots of new foods. I let him be as adventurous as he’s willing to be, trying different things – some things are going down better than others! They’re both having lots of fun with it.
Hi, my name is Ria. I have two beautiful girls! Everly who is 2 and Addison who is 6 months old. I baby led weaned Everly when she was younger so have chosen this route again with Addison! I will be sharing this exciting journey on my Instagram – ria_elliss, alongside motherhood tips and tricks & day to day life!
