Welcome to Solid Start!

No-nonsense professional advice you can trust

We all want our babies and children to get off to the best start in life and grow up healthy and happy. It’s now well known that what a child eats when they are young will affect their health not just today but also in the future as an adult. However, with so much nutrition information available these days, it can be hard to know who or what to believe about the best approach to feeding your babies and young children.

The Solid Start philosophy is simple. Founded by Caroline O’Connor, Cork-based registered dietitian and mum of four children, we offer up to date, factual, no-nonsense professional information you can trust. We give you the confidence, information and feeding strategies you need to get your baby and children off to the best start with food, feeding and nutrition.

We cut through the nutribabble of superfoods, Instagram meals and food trends and show you that you don’t have to spend a fortune or hours in the kitchen nor do you need to have ‘Masterchef’ cooking skills. Your baby and family can develop healthy eating habits for life once you have the basics right.

We run two classes for parents on a regular basis in Rochestown, Midleton and Mallow in Cork. One on Baby Weaning and the other on Fussy Eating. If it doesn’t suit you to come to us then we can come to you, either for a private class or consultation in the comfort of your own home.

If you would like to be part of the Solid Start journey, then don’t wait, take the first step today and book into a class or arrange a consultation with our registered dietitian.
