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!

Power packed cookie dough bites

 These were delish!

What I used:

1 cup granola cereal with raisins
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 can chickpeas, puréed

Mix the above ingredients together then grind another 1/4 cup cereal into powder to thicken as needed.  Roll into balls and enjoy!

I'm going to try this with bananas and cinnamon mixed in next time!
