Therapy and Support for Fussy Eater Toddlers
Mini Munchers is for fussy eater toddlers aged 2-4. Run by an Occupational Therapist and a Therapy Assistant. Children will be encouraged to explore food using all their senses. The focus is on making food fun through play.
All activities will involve food and be based around a food theme each week.
The sessions are 60 minutes long and for parents/carers and their toddler to attend together. Starting with “hello time”, each session will contain the following constructs with some activities being combined:
- A gross motor activity
- Hand washing
- A messy play activity
- A smelling activity
- A fine motor activity
- A Story or song
- Good bye time
Parents will need to stay with their child and be responsible for them. Parents will be given a “top tip” each week to incorporate into meal times at home. Parents can also take home a different recipe each week which incorporates a food from the chosen theme.
If your child has an allergy please discuss this with Jacqueline in advance.
The programme runs for 6 weeks during term time. Numbers are limited to 12 children therefore bookings need to be made in advance. Please visit our Book Sessions page for more information and available dates.
