Kids mealtime language



The way we speak about food and eating with our children is so important. Children need to  learn the importance of  healthy eating and mealtimes early on in their lives  and creative healthy  associations with eating behaviours. This is especially important when they are pushing boundaries with trying new foods or refusing foods. We want to create a happy eating environment not one when where they feel forced or anxious around eating.


I stumbled upon this great resource for parents about ways to talk to your toddler or child that will empower them or create positive eating behaviours.
