Health Visitors from East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH) have organised a series of baby weaning sessions in the Waveney area, which include advice for new parents on what to do if a baby starts to choke.

Parents with children up to the age of one are invited to join the classes at Kirkley Children's Centre on July 13, the Ark in Lowestoft on August 2 and Butterflies Children's Centre in Beccles on September 4 from 1pm to 3pm.

Nursery nurses will explain how best to introduce solid food to children's diets and an ECCH specialist trainer will explain how to deal with a child who is choking.

Health visitor Holly Calverley Crabtree said: 'Parents often tell us they are nervous about choking when introducing lumpy foods at a young age. So, in the unlikely event a baby does choke, we want parents to feel confident about how to manage it and get appropriate medical help if necessary.'

To book contact the Health Visiting team on 01502 532053.
