Feed Me!

Toddler Snacktime

Encourage sharing and taking turns by asking your child to feed you, too. After they take a bite say, “My turn!” Open your mouth and see if they’ll give you a bite. Say, “Thank you!” and then prompt them to take a turn. They will love having a turn at being in charge!

See what your child is learning

When you and your child take turns, you’re modeling the back-and-forth of communication, which will help them as they learn to talk and read. They’re also learning about relating to others in a fun way.
