Fun with Food!

Welcome to Fun with Food! This site was designed to help parents and caregivers find, share and ask about fun foods for your selective toddler!

As a speech-language pathologist specializing in pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders, I encounter many children who have experienced negative associations surrounding food. These children often have accompanying oral motor feeding difficulties and sensory processing difficulties--making eating a very stressful experience instead of an enjoyable one.

This website will hopefully serve as an "idea place" for meals as well as questions and support from other parents and caregivers. Enjoy!

She has been insistent on the side of ranch now but yes, she does eat it! We do 'therapy' at home too for all new foods! I'm a big believer in family meals especially after not having them for a while--then you really see things go haywire! She'd eat PB&J every night if it were up to her and Yes, that does happen on occasion!
