WHAT WORDS DO YOU USE TO TALK ABOUT FOOD?
Expand your child's ability to try new flavors by using simple but creative word choices that take the focus away from likes and dislikes, and wants and don't wants. Consider ways to describe the food itself, rather than your reaction to it. Rather than saying, "Ooohh, I like this!" how about saying, "Ooohh this tastes crunchy and sweet!"
INSTEAD OF SAYING
* Do you like it?
* Do you want it?
* Does this taste like "more"?
* Is this your choice right now?
* Is that a strong flavor in your mouth?
* Is it time to spit it out?
