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!

Little Chef of the Week!

If you have a little girl then you are probably familiar with Pinkalicious, the tale of a little girl who can't stop eating pink cupcakes despite the warnings from her parents. This is one of my daughter's favorite books...that and of course Purpilicious!

Pictured below is sweet 4 year old Caroline from Arkansas making her very own Pinkalicious cupcakes! The results look...well, pinkalicious for lack of a yummier description! A special thanks to Caroline's mother who took these great pictures and shared them with me! If you have a picture you would like to share feel free to email it to me and I will be sure to post it!
