  • Resources

Mealtime—“Yummy-in-the-tummy time”—is an opportunity to teach young children two major life skills: nutrition and table manners. Simple but important mealtime routines come to life as the toddlers in this book remember to wash their hands, use a napkin and fork or spoon, stay at the table, and eat healthy foods. Toddlers also learn the one big rule for mealtime: Always try one bite (“You just might like it!”). Parents and caregivers want toddlers to develop healthy eating habits and

    My son is an extremely difficult and picky eater so out of desparation, I bought this book to encourage him. While I can’t say this book has solved his eating issues, he does seem to like the book a lot more than I expected (I find it a little boring but I’m not a toddler!). He is able to follow the “story” with no problem and identify all the foods, the utensils, etc. It might have encouraged him to try strawberries recently.

    This review is from: Mealtime (Toddler Tools) (Board book)
    I am always looking for board books that are about having good manners during meals and are positive about trying new foods. I have been using French Kids Eat Everything: How Our Family Moved to France, Cured Picky Eating, Banned Snacking, and Discovered 10 Simple Rules for Raising Happy, Healthy Eaters as a way to teach my daughter to eat more foods, and one of the tips in the book is about reading books to kids that are about growing food, and eating food. You would be surprised how many books there are about characters who refuse to eat a certain type of food. I think it puts the idea into the child’s mind that those foods are yucky so then they don’t want to eat that food either. So now before I buy a book to do with food I try to find it at the library first so I can read it myself before showing it to my daughter.

    I checked this one out of from the library and I love it. I’m definitely going to purchase it after I take it back. This book is great. Not only does it show happy, smiling kids who are using great manners during their meal, they are also happily eating at least one bite of everything on their plates. My daughter loves this book, especially the last page of the children playing at the end of the meal. She would have us read it 20 times a day. My husband likes to explain each illustration after reading the text and she loves that. I like to add my own rules during the portion about table manners (No feet on the table, no throwing cups…)

    We read this book right before meals so the words are fresh in her mind. Throughout the meal we remind her about what she learned from the book and it sort of helps, but she is still learning. She is very strong willed and one book is not going to stop her from acting out, but it does help her understand some of our rules.

    My 18 month old son loves this book, and all of the books we’ve tried thus far in this series (sharing and calm down time). The text is still a little advanced for him, but he gets the general idea. He seems to love the illustrations, too, and goes back to wanting to read the series pretty regularly.
