Mealtime tips

Having her bowl of food will help your child learn to feed himself. Start as soon as she wants. Give her all the food she needs and plenty of time to eat.

At first, she’ll be slow and messy. Help her get most of the food in her mouth (instead of on himself or the floor!).

Encourage her to finish it and make sure she has had enough.

Give your child lots of love and encouragement to eat during meal times.

Sit in front of her and make eye contact. Interact with your child, smile at her, talk to her and praise her for eating.

Make the meal a happy time!
