Exploring Food


Cisco loves to fed himself but tended to look at me like I was crazy if I gave him anything sticky or real wet so the speech therapist recommended a sensory meal each day.  I was quickly able to get him to be more adventurous.  I think his hesitation had a lot to do with me mostly giving him breads and other somewhat dry foods he could easily pick up and take a bite without them falling apart.  Here is one of his first sensory meals about a week ago. Now, most of his meals are high sensory. This week he’s eaten, all by hand, oatmeal, quinoa with oil, various foods with sauces that I didn’t pre-rinse like I used to and the list keeps growing. So proud of my little guy.
