What to do:
- Put small amounts of food (three or four pieces at a time) on child’s eating tray.
- Stay close by and observe while child is eating so that you can help if needed.
- Let child pick up food with her fingers and eat it.
- Move food to an accessible spot if she gets stuck.
- Amount and type of food can change as child’s skills improve and as she gets older.
- Much of the food may go on the floor and that’s fine.
- Have fun and encourage her to enjoy her new skills.
