Fun Dishes To Encourage Eating
During feeding therapy, we use a number of games, toys and dishes to make eating more of a fun experience. Here are a few simple examples of fun dishes that may help your little one with feeding difficulties try some new foods. I personally bought one of the game plates for use at home with my kids and they fight over who gets the special game plate!
Face plates such as this are sold on websites such as Amazon. For a cheaper version, try drawing a face on a paper plate.
I love using fun forks and spoons to encourage pick eaters to try new foods. These are a few examples of forks that I have found successful in the clinic. Additionally, children love small appetizer forks that can be found at most dollar stores.
This plate is available on Amazon and allows children to receive a special surprise once they work their way around the board trying each food.
Tips for using these plates:
