As a mum of a toddler and tutor of children with Special Educational Needs (www.cheshiresentutor.com) I know the difficulty that some children face when trying new foods.
Often it’s not just the taste of new foods but their texture and colour that can cause children to reject them.
Sometimes, especially for those with ASD, the change in routine and trying foods out of their comfort zone can be particularly stressful.
That’s why I was intrigued by the Taste ‘n’ Tell Discovering Food Series.
What did I like about it?
- It combines food and reading! (What’s not to love about that!!)
- It’s an excellent, educational, fun and unique method for encouraging children to try new foods.
- There are many different ways you can use the book meaning that it’s adaptable to all children and their families.
- It’s practical- the pot clips out of the book and can easily be washed after use.
- It uses positive reinforcement (stickers and reward chart) to encourage children.
- It’s packed full of pictures and rhymes to engage readers, in a good child-friendly font.
