Food Introduction!

Here at Tumbleweed, we love to support healthy eating habits from the beginning.

We create rituals around meal times so that children can anticipate what's happening next.

We talk about the food preparation and sources to support understanding and future participation.

We provide whole foods that children can grab on their own.

We create a place setting that supports each child's natural movement (i.e. no propping) and adjust as time goes on and skills change.

We talk about what's happening during the meal (like passing and scooping and pouring), in preparation for the skills children will use with each other in the future.

And we have fun!!! Eating is awesome.
