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!

Seasoned Butterbean Dip

This probably should not constitute as an actual recipe, given its simplicity---very good nonetheless!

1 can seasoned butterbeans, drain 1/2 the can
Blend or process until smooth
Serve with whatever floats your boat! We used snap pea crisps and Veggie Tubes
