Animal bites! Sometimes mealtime can be a challenge. Encourage your child to eat by offering them choices about how they eat. You can say something like, “Do you want two big dinosaur bites or four little bird bites?” Count the bites together and ask them to think of their own “Animal Bites” eating ideas.

¡Bocados de animales! Algunas veces la hora de la comida puede ser difícil. Anima a tu niño para que coma de diferentes maneras. Puedes decir algo como, “¿Quieres dos bocados grandes de dinosaurio o cuatro bocados pequeños de pajarito?” Cuenten juntos los bocados y pídele que piense en sus propias sugerencias para comer con “Bocados de animales”.
