> EATING

Eating 

Eating is another tricky skill for children to learn! There are big eaters, little eaters and fussy eaters! 

Eating can be a cause of stress for families, and an area that can be sensitive, as everyone has different values around eating and meal times. This is an important area to support and listen to families. 

For parents - with anything to do with eating we recommend talking to your Speech Language Pathologist or Occupational Therapist.

Information on Eating is listed below.

Jasper McFlee Will Not Eat His Tea

Why we love it ♥

This book goes through the world of Jasper and his refusal to eat anything but pasta. It outlines how Jasper, who won't eat his dinner, becomes weaker and thinner and sicker and sadder. This book addresses with good humour an issue that plagues many families at meal time - the curse of the picky eater.

Deceptively Delicious 

Why we love it ♥

Normally we don't suggest "hiding" vegetables within food, as sometimes this can further impact any food aversions children may have. However each family has their own choice and this is a great book if they prefer to go down that track. One to be aware of!!
