Yorkshire Born Yorkshire Fed was initially set up as a baby food business, providing fresh meals with local Yorkshire food to support busy parents. It soon became clear that many new parents were bamboozled with weaning and all the conflicting information available online. This is where our weaning workshops began; sharing years of expertise and knowledge on how best to wean your baby, making the process as simple and enjoyable as possible.

With ten years of NHS experience, specialising in healthy eating and children's centres, owner Sophie has vast knowledge about infant feeding. She is also a breastfeeding peer supporter. With two small children of her own, Sophie understands the struggles with weaning and all the tricks to support your family's journey in the weaning process.

All our trainers have full weaning training, nutrition qualifications, relevant knowledge and experience to be able to deliver informal and informative sessions and be able to answer all your questions!
Award-winning confidence builders
Our face-to-face workshops run across Yorkshire covering everything new parents need to know about weaning, and the online sessions were a new introduction for 2020. Groups are kept intentionally small, so parents feel more confident in asking questions. Find out more about our weaning workshops here.
