Knows Edible vs. Non-Edible

“To Eat or Not To Eat? That is the Question”.

Does your child mouth non-edible objects?  If so, take the objects away and present something else.  Give your child an edible and non-edible object, then… 

  • Use verbal reinforcement when your child eats the edible objects.
  • Discourage your child from eating the non-edible items by frowning and taking them away. 
  • Observe your child throughout the day.  Continually use the above procedure until he is able to distinguish between edible and non-edible items.
