Weaning your baby? You are in the right place. The Weaning Centre by Porter Nutrition is designed to be the go to place for weaning advice on a budget.

Why? Because there isn’t enough time between wash loads, nappy changes and feeding to trawl through loads of information only to find the advice given needs a full time nanny (and the budget to go with it) to put into practice.

So, hello and welcome. I’m Aliya Porter. I’m a mum of 3 and a Registered Nutritionist.

As a mum of 3, I found when I weaned my eldest back in 2010 that there wasn’t much information available. Gradually as social media increased so did the number of blogs and accounts on weaning, so many that it now gets really confusing. In today’s world I find that many weaning ideas are just not achievable for parents like me who don’t have loads of money and don’t have loads of time to prepare gourmet meals for my babies (sorry kids!).

As a Registered Nutritionist, I have sifted through the science and look at what studies say not individually but collectively – it’s what we call the ‘evidence base’. I then work out how to put it into practice so you don’t have to.

I offer you advice free of charge through this website and social media, as well as the opportunity to be one of my clients, to learn more and get tailored advice through my 1-1 support and courses.
