chop chop

No, he doesn't eat any of those foods. Yes, playing, touching, cutting up foods is one of the things recommended to get sensory kids to eat a bigger variety. He absolutely loves to help cook, cut up and play with food and has been doing so for over 6 years but it hasn't progressed to actually eating any of it! It is still awesome for his tactile sensitivity and the cutting is also good for his hand strength and endurance.

And yes, the firecat is more hinderance than help in the kitchen. She has a very short go at cutting, a bit of taste testing, then a whole lot of throwing. (They are kiddy knives they are using so she her fingers are quite safe in the above photo!)
