This week, the Triple P Team offers ways to help your toddler lean to feed themselves more independently.
Infant and toddler eating habits seem to change in the blink of an eye. One day they request nothing but scrambled eggs for every meal, and the next, they won’t touch the stuff.
The same can be true of how a toddler eats. If your child, who is normally content with you spoon feeding them mashed fruits, suddenly protests the incoming “airplane” or, better yet, wants to fly the plane herself, it might be a good time to encourage independent eating.
