Here are our main topics for our 60 Minute Online Session to foster a love of food:
✓ The importance of involving your child in food preparation. 🔪
✓ The importance of preparing a kitchen space so that your child can access the child sized tools s/he needs at her height, to be able to prepare her own snack, and lay the table for mealtimes. 👨🏾🍳👩🏼🍳
✓ Allowing your child to come to the table when s/he is ready to eat, and leave the table when s/he is finished – your child can be completely independent in their decision to eat or not. 🤯
✓ Why bowls and glasses are wooden, glass or ceramic instead of plastic. 🍽️
✓ Why water is served in a tiny glass (no sippy cups or plastic beakers).
✓ Why the emphasis is upon your child’s full sensorial experience of the joy of eating, not on how much they are eating or how they are getting it into their mouths! 😉
✓ Why they feed themselves, either with their hands or a spoon/fork. (why an adult does not feed a child). ❤️
✓ How your child decides how, and how much they want to eat.
✓ What to do when your child shrieks “I don’t like this” at supper time and you end up feeling like a restaurant chef, suggesting option after option in a bid to persuade your child to eat. 😬
✓ Or on the other end of this exhausting spectrum , we draw a firm boundary around what to offer at mealtimes and then are wracked with guilt about our child possibly feeling hungry during the night and what it says about us if we are depriving them of food. 😵
