Most of us look forward to Christmas and all the wonderful food that comes with it. Many of our children struggle with the sensory aspects of food particularly colour, smell, taste and texture and are reluctant to eat or even touch many food types. Christmas can be a difficult time for these little guys with so many new and colourful foods on offer. Our food therapy groups focus on helping children move along the continuum of tolerating the sight, touch and taste of challenging foods by encouraging food interaction through play. Here are some great ideas you can do at home to make Christmas themed food fun!
