Favorite Flavors

Toddler Mealtime

As you eat with your child, describe the flavors you both are eating. “The fruit is sweet.” “The pickle is sour.” Make a face that goes along with each flavor to make it more fun. You can also talk about which foods you like the best.

See what your child is learning

As you describe the foods you’re eating, your child is making connections that will help them learn new words and their meanings. They’re also learning what you like and don’t like. This is an important skill to get along well with others.
