For young kids who struggle to touch their food, Milton the Mealtime Companion is an excellent addition. Your child can pretend to feed him foods on his plate and imagine the sound the food will make. A great way to get your child to interact with their food!
For children who struggle to stay at the table, I love this visual timer. Start with 5 minutes and reward your child for staying. This is perfect for young children who don’t have a concept of time.

Your child will love to interact with their foods with these food art plates. It’s a fun way to serve food and let your child have fun food exposures.
