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!

Crunchy munchy peppers for dipping

My daughter has had so much fun with a spray water bottle lately so I thought I'd let her spray her own bell pepper strips with some tangy Italian spray dressing. Although she resorted to trying the peppers in good ol' Ranch dressing--I thought this was a good idea for a fun hands on food activity!
