How Pick Plates Work… this was the kids’ dinner tonight and a perfect example of how Pick Plates work in practice. Yes they’re fun and colourful and children will naturally be drawn towards them.
But they’re also super practical too in that they allow space for foods that kids may not particularly enjoy (the learning to like foods!)
The physical separation of food gives a sense of choice and control to children. At first they may complain, then they may accept and tolerate the new foods and eventually actually eat them!
Having five compartments also encourages us as parents to fill them up with more fruits and veggies and we might usually offer our children. This is definitely the case for me!
