Eating & Cooking

Food is a large part of a child's life. Not only does it provide nutrients to grow, but it gives children the opportunity to develop independence, practical skills, and likes/dislikes. You can also take advantage of this daily activity and use it to spend quality time together as you teach and learn together. Giving your child responsibilities can create a child-led eating experience for them, which can look different for every family.

If you are feeding your child, teaching independent eating, or if you are working on involving them in food prep, you can incorporate some of these child-sized resources that might help set your child up for success.
"They can easily be a part of what’s going on helping out in the kitchen. And even that they can just see–if an adult is doing something in the kitchen, they’ll go up in their tower to watch. It’s given them so many opportunities to be independent and involved."
