Food is fun
Now that she can pick up small pieces of food to feed herself, mealtimes take on a whole new and playful dimension. It’s just one long game from waving bread sticks in the air to smearing yoghurt all over her face, the table and probably you. Resist the urge to spoil her fun by grabbing the spoon and clearing up too soon. It’s an all important sensory experience, even if it is a bit messy.
