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!

A Son's Message of Patience with Trying New Foods

The following video is a message from a child with Autism. Take a few minutes to listen to his precious words and allow his honesty and message of patience to be a lesson to all of us! Thank you Jake--you are putting into words what many children cannot and I'm proud to feature you on my blog!
