  • I will be using these flash cards with my 2 yr old daughter to extend her food vocabulary through play.

  • I have 2 fussy eaters, one because she is autistic the other because of lots of reasons.  Our local hospital gave me a leaflet on fussy eaters and suggests making a scrap book for the children to cut out and stick images of items they eat.  Then items they don't.  When they have tried the item (supposed to be 5 times) they can put a sticker next to it and eventually earn a reward.  I am going to try and see if it works with the help of some lovely twinkl images.
