My favourite meal

This activity will get your child chatting about the things they like to eat.

Chatting and making things helps your child develop. With this support, they’ll even do better at school by the time they start.

This activity asks your child to chat about foods they like.

First you’ll need:

  • A paper plate (or circle of paper)
  • Crayons or pencils
  • Child-safe scissors
  • Food magazines
  • Glue

Talk to your child about foods they like, then look for pictures in the magazine. Help them cut out their favourites and stick them to their paper plate.

Good to know

Discussing your child’s likes and dislikes helps them feel more confident in making decisions.
