Animal Bites

Toddler Mealtime

Sometimes mealtime can be a challenge. Encourage your child to eat by offering them choices about how they eat. You can say something like, “Do you want two big dinosaur bites or four little bird bites” Count the bites together and ask them to think of their own “Animal Bites” eating ideas.

When you help your child to make their own choices, you show them they can do even difficult things. This helps them take on challenges and develop confidence. Counting “Animal Bites” together is a fun math experience for them too!
