Myths of how children learn to eat

Explore the myths...


Myth 1

Eating is instinctive - eating is developmental and is learnt through mirroring and observing others eat. Copy cat behaviour.


Myth 2

Eating is a two step process - eating skills are highly complex and takes 32 steps to develop. It goes from learning consciously to subconscious competence.


Myth 3 

All children develop eating skills at the same time - just like talking crawling walking etc, eating has a developmental continuum and is very individual per child. It is quite normal for even. Four year old to want to be fed after a busy day.


Myth 4

Eating is the body’s number 1 priority

Breathing is the body’s number one priority… 


Myth 5

Certain foods have to be eaten at certain times of day - what foods are eaten when,  is a very culturally driven choice as well as an economic decision and influenced by industry.

Why can’t you have spaghetti bolognaise for breakfast and a bowl of warm oats for supper? 

Children actually cope better at the beginning of the day vs the end of the day on a sensory level x considering food is a sensory experience of varying degrees it makes sense to serve a low sensory meal towards the end of the day.
