Aileen Cox Blundell is a mum of three. When her daughter, Jade, was born in 2002, the only way to get her to eat anything was to place the food in front of her and let her take control and feed herself. Seeing the incredible benefits of allowing her own children to experiment with food at an early age led her to create the popular blog and website 'Baby-Led Feeding', which recently won awards for both Best Irish Parenting Blog and Best Irish Food and Drink Blog. Aileen lives in Swords with her husband, Conor, and their three foodie children, Jade, Dylan and Oscar. www.babyledfeeding.com
