What’s Sarah’s expertise?

Sarah is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Dietetic Association: her key expertise is in weaning and baby nutrition.

Can you explain Sarah’s connection to MadeForMums?

Sarah has consulted on many weaning articles we’ve written at MadeForMums, including one on encouraging your child to use a spoon and introducing your baby to new flavours.

We also, of course, love the fact that Sarah is a mum herself, too! She told us:

I’m lucky enough to have the best job in the world, I work with mums and dads to help them do the best they can to nourish their little ones. But I’m a one-woman-band and I can't get around everyone and so I write, make videos, have an online Baby Nutrition & Weaning course and work with baby brands to try and reach as many mums and dads as possible, cutting through the fiction and nonsense in order to guide them through weaning and fussy eating.

“I’m also a mum of 2 and both of my children had nutritional problems: one had iron deficiency and the other food allergies which led to food aversions and extreme fussy eating – so I’ve been there, too!

“When I’m not working you’ll find me with my husband and kids walking our labradoodle Dustin on the beach, or testing out new recipes in my kitchen with a G&T in hand!”

What else does Sarah do?

Sarah has contributed to medical journals and a dietetic textbook. She has also worked closely with brands including Annabel Karmel, Tommee Tippee, and Rachel’s, as well as MadeForMums.

And Sarah offers a Baby Nutrition & Weaning Course and a Feeding & Fussy Eating Coaching Course for parents and has produced a number of helpful videos for parents around some of her favourite feeding / weaning products.
