During meals, turn the TV off and redirect your child by engaging him in what “special” food will be revealed.
What You Need:
- Clean towel or paper bag
What To Do:
- Before setting the table, choose one dish (e.g. sliced apples) to be the “special” food to be revealed.
- Hide the apples using the towel or paper bag and place it on the table.
- Say, “It’s time for lunch! I wonder what the hidden food is today. Can you guess? No peeking!”
- Encourage him to think of different foods by giving him hints. “It’s something that is red on the outside, sweet, and grows on trees. When we eat it, it goes “crunch!”
- After lunch, show him images of apple trees and pretend to pick the apples by stretching and jumping.
