Time to Eat

Publisher: Featherstone

Toddlers with ponytails and toddlers with braids enjoy all sorts of delicious snacks and meals in Time to Eat. From spaghetti to strawberries and prawns to pea soup, this story explores the vibrant colour, texture and sizes of food.

Children learn that food gives us energy to play and grow and when food is not to our taste, we may begin to enjoy it more if we give it another chance or two.

Cheerful and bold illustrations of smiling faces enjoying food will engage children thoroughly in this story. There’s lots and lots of scope to develop language and play opportunities from this story, too. Families can talk about familiar and unfamiliar food, consider what other families may eat, and search for new and exciting food when out shopping together.

In addition to the story, there are helpful tips for parents and carers from the author – a leading Early Years expert – about how to introduce new food and encourage a healthy and balanced diet.
