Play With Your Food
How many times have you heard an adult say, “don’t play with your food!” Play is at the forefront of all developmental activities but when it comes to food, this often gets thrown out of the window. Switch to the yes- Yes! Play with your food! Feeding is a multi-sensory experience and playing with food allows children to gain comfortability and move towards acceptance by exploring food with all of their senses WITHOUT the pressure to eat or try. Join us for a food based craft/activity followed by open play in our play space. This class is not just for selective eaters. Led by a speech pathologist/co-founder of More Than Play
