The Aim of National Weaning Week
National Weaning Week will take place from 6-12th May this year. It’s aim is to offer a supportive week and forum for families, experts, retailers and brands to come together and talk about weaning. Throughout the week, we are asking everyone to get on board and share support, information, recipe ideas and tips to make weaning easier and fun! Weaning Week’s mission is to help families feel empowered to wean their child as nutritiously as possible.
What is Weaning?
