Touching a food.
Often this is a really easy step for picky eaters but not always. For some children touching certain foods can be really challenging.
Being confident around a food and being able to touch it and handle it is important. If we don't even have that level of comfort there is little chance of it making it into our mouth!
Shopping, growing, cooking and serving foods are all great ways to give our children the opportunity to touch new foods away from the table.
If our child is happy to handle foods at the table then that's great and the more we do it the more comfortable we become with that food.
Judith is passionate about good food and is even more passionate about enabling other people to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food available today.
