Does your kiddo only want your food, even if it’s the same thing they’re eating? Why do they do this, and how do you deal with it?
I’m an OT specializing in feeding therapy and I see this type of behavior all the time in my clients. Your kiddo may be exercising their independence - “I do SELF” - and they want some control over their environment. They may not realize that the food on their plate is *exactly the same,* but it doesn’t matter - they want YOURS. They may also be testing limits and learning about boundaries. Fun, huh?
So, what can you do to encourage them to eat their own food?
