Child Feeding Community of Practice Webinar - Shared screen with speaker view
Did you say, is there a list of age-appropriate messages that parents could use?
How does this type of conversation blend with Division of REsponsibility? Just having a happy meal-time.
Thank you for the clarification.
Frankie loves to make pancakes!
we let b cut strawberries, and bannanas hes 4
my kids help me with any meal prep breakfast, lunch and dinner, especially dinner
My 6yo has been scrambling his own eggs since he was 3. He loves to make his own breakfast egg and toast.
Not baking or cooking but we made smoothies most mornings: Fear Factor smoothies with Kale. I would challenge them to try it, & they like it.
Zucchini or banana bread, if i'm cooking a vegetable, I let them break off the end of green beans. My older daughter helps peel carrots. They cut their own softer fruit using a plastic knife.
Lori-butter chicken, pasta sauce, homemade tortillas
Yay to all of these!
I baked with my grandma, we made pies
yes!! all my memories with grandma were as a kid in the kitchen, I would sit on the counter and help make tortillas
making flour tortillas with my mom and sister! got to talk and sing to music while helping roll tortillas or flip them on the griddle.
Making pancakes with my dad. Learned to make bread pudding with his mom. Fresh egg nog with my mom's mom.
I loved making cakes with my grandma, I got to measure and use the electric mixer.
Making homemade pasta with my mom and grandma.
I used to bake chocolate chip cookies with my grandma. I used to cook with my mom when I was little until I burt my hand.
icecream with grandparents and cousins
I baked and cooked at home and was encouraged to do more as I got older. I was in charge of cooking/preparing a meal once a month for the family. My favorite was breaded chicken and broccoli. I still love this meal but I tailor it now to be a little healthier now. :)
crinkle choppers are also great!
I <3 Roman!!!
Tools to make it easier
he's so fearless and loved exploring the food, on and off of the plate! raw and cooked.
he was very proud of his pizza!!
I liked how the mom let the child be in control of the meal.
Cuteness overload! so polite saying please everytime. How much he ate as he prepared. :)
the parent set the child up for success by having everything ready and set up for him
Roman tried the foods he was putting on his pizza while he makes it.
He said "I did it" He felt proud and excited for accomplishing a new task.
I believe he took the activity as a play time no knowing he was learning to eat new things. Very funny
He TRIES the food he is working with. He uses his senses. I love when he smells the food and can't help but eat it.
with the subtitles, as he re-watches his own video, he can learn about words & letters.
The apron! He was pointing out his new apron. Kids love to have a special cooking hat or apron or shirt.
