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!

Panko Paradise

If I knew how to insert audio clips and sunbeams I would try my best to recreate National Lampoon's Christmas vacation scene. You know the scene...Clark Griswold and family stumble upon "THE" perfect Christmas tree and the light beams are shining down in conjunction with a gigantic harmonic Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

Well, this is how I feel about Panko bread crumbs and successful new food creations lately. I even decided to dedicate a spice jar JUST for Mr. Panko---welcome to the spice jar family!
