Fast Food Baby: Blossom on BBC 3

No Comments Blossom

Junk food diets are an increasingly big problem in the UK and many children are being introduced to a diet high in nasty fats, sugar and salt at an alarmingly early age. Last month I took part in filming a programme for BBC3 called Fast Food Baby, a programme due to start mid-April. I gave advice to a very motivated mum who was keen to stop her and her son’s fast food habit, but just didn’t know where to start. Look out for me on http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b010y763

Hello and welcome to the Blossom blog, a place for the latest news, reviews, recipes and reliable information on children’s nutrition, written by a qualified paediatric dietitian.

The internet can sometimes be more confusing than helpful and I often find that parents are confused about nutrition after spending hours searching. Search no further! This website hopes to be a one-stop-shop for quality nutrition information. Here you will also be able to use the free healthy weight checker to assess your child’s Body Mass Index, and access useful websites that are vetted by a professional in the know.

Please feel free to email me with any nutrition queries and I will post answers on the site in the FAQ section. I run a private practice in Cheshire and am about to start some weaning groups and toddler food fun sessions – get in touch if you would like to know more.

Best wishes, Hayley
