Feed Me!

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: 45 minutes

Materials:

  • 1 large sheet poster board or cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Markers and crayons
  • Food pictures cut from magazines

Here is a fun way to help your child start to make healthy food choices. Instead of making the head, you can purchase a bean-bag target face for the same purpose.

  1. Cut a large head (approximately the size of a beach ball) out of poster board. Cut out a hole for the mouth.
  2. Have your child help you decorate the head.
  3. Provide your child with a variety of magazine clippings of food pictures. Be sure to have a wide selection of both nutritious and junk foods. Ask your child to feed the head with only those foods that are nutritious.
