New Food Reward Chart

Eating new foods is very challenging for some children and this can make mealtimes stressful both for them and for their parents. We’ve asked our friends at City Dietitians for their expert advice on gentle ways to encourage children to try new tastes. This reward chart, can be used in conjunction with our other resources on food and nutrition, either at home or at school. Remember, for some children, trying a new food can be a long journey. The first time that they are presented with a new flavour, they might only smell it, but even this is an achievement which should be acknowledged. Encourage them to give themselves a tick or a sticker each time they complete a step towards eating a new food.
