Rotary/Diagonal Chewing Patterns


  • Present your child with a variety of foods.
  • Vary the texture (e.g., mushy, crunchy, lumpy, etc.).
  • Place the foods in different parts of your child’s mouth (e.g., at the tip of the tongue, middle of the tongue, right side of the mouth, left side of the mouth).
  • Repeat this activity during each meal.  If your child becomes upset discontinue and try again at the next meal.
