Divided plates – good or bad idea?
Divided or ‘split’ plates look appealing and seem like a fun way to serve your child their meal – but divided plates can cause problems!
👎 They encourage your child to be fussy about foods touching each other. (I won’t eat my sausage because it’s got some baked bean sauce on it!)
👎 They encourage your child to be anti ‘wet’ food! (I want plain pasta in a separate compartment without any of the sauce on it.)
👎 They make it even easier for you child to psychologically ‘compartmentalise’ the parts of their meal they don’t want (I’ll just pretend that veg isn’t even there.)
