taste-and-see-healthy-baby-food-logoTaste & See Healthy Baby Food provides guidance to parents learning about early childhood nutrition from baby to preschool age. Owner and Instructor, Cheryl Carey, MSW, combines her love for cooking and her experience introducing foods to babies at every stage into instructional classes and hands-on cooking workshops for parents. When the time comes to introduce solid foods, parents experience excitement and maybe a little panic.  These classes and in-home lessons empower parents to prepare their own homemade food by teaching them both cooking skills and nutritional information.  So much can be learned in a short amount of time to ensure a nutritious healthy start for your baby!

The first year of a baby’s life is crucial for child nutrition and a time when parents may be experiencing a mix of fear and excitement over when to start on solid foods.


In Homemade Baby Food 101, parents learn:


  • How to determine baby’s readiness to start solid foods
  • The best time to introduce solids
  • Age appropriate food choices
  • Food preparation + cooking methods
  • Food storage


You’ll also get to taste test sample foods in this class as it covers texture, consistency and food combinations for stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3 baby foods based on your baby’s age and development.


For babies already on solids, this is a great way to learn about foods beyond purees, natural flavorings, spices and food combinations! Bring your little ones as this is a baby/child friendly class.


Plus, each attendee walks away with a FREE 50-page comprehensive food guide that includes recipes for three developmental stages that you can re-create and adapt at home. Inside the guide you’ll also find useful information about breast/formula feeding, baby food guidelines, nutritional basics, and much more. You will also receive a list of trustworthy resources that can guide you with online searches for your baby’s first year.


Feel more confident about preparing homemade food that is both nutritious and delicious. Sign up today for Baby Food 101: Fresh & Simple.

The class size is limited to 12 families. This is a baby-friendly class. Light snacks and drinks will be provided during the class.
