Hi! I’m Lara, a 30-something project manager living with my fiancée and baby in west London. I love getting out and about with my family, wine with friends and dreaming about living in a large house one day. Oh, and I bloody love food.

This blog is going to follow mine and my little boy’s journey into the exciting and messy world of weaning and beyond…

I am NOT a traditional spoon weaner

I am NOT a baby led weaner

I am a massive foodie who happens to also have a baby…and we are taking a good-food-led weaning approach! There will be purees here and finger foods there, but the focus will always be on building my child’s enthusiasm for good, honest food in as natural a state as possible. I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
