Sometimes mealtimes can be a battle with young children, especially when they don't want to try new foods. How can we best help children understand that it can take time to like a new food? And how can we develop their vocabulary so they can articulate how they are feeling about food?Penny Tassoni, leading Early Years education consultant, author and trainer, presents a picture book with simple words and delightful full-colour illustrations by Mel Four that encourages children to change their attitudes towards food through looking at shapes and colours, talking about textures and generally making food more interesting. In doing so, young children will build on their self-care skills, behaviour and routines when it comes to healthy eating. Time to Eat is the perfect book for putting a positive and fun spin on mealtimes and food. It also includes a page of practical advice and tips for practitioners, carers and parents on fussy eating.
