Food IS Sensory!

Duration:60 minutes


Food is sensory and the sensory aspects of food help children know if food is safe or enjoyable for them to eat or try. We will take a careful look at each of the sensory properties of food and look at how we can carefully grade the sensory challenges in our food presentations to help children progress through developmental mealtime transitions and make mealtimes be more enjoyable for children and parents.

Learner Outcomes

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Define the near and distant aspects of vision, smell, taste, touch and sound that influence eating
2. Describe the how sensory variables can be utilized in grading our ASK of children
3. Describe the importance of rehearsals in new food introduction
4. Describe the continuum concept in feeding treatment
5. Define the importance of supporting child and parent success in mealtimes

Registration cost: $30
