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!

Homemade Happy Meals

Who doesn't love a happy meal every now and then? We thought it would be fun to create our own happy little box and fill it with some food samplings for a picnic! Our box--a cupcake box-- is very simple with some hearts and butterflies but you could go crazy with characters and personalize this in whichever way you please. In the next few weeks I will be personalizing a few boxes for feeding therapy patients and will include small portions of their new foods. Adalyn's box had a small dish of boca burger, blueberries, cheese and a fruitaboo. Happy Eating!
