Monica, you put that beautifully! I used to be an infant teacher and meal time was my favorite because of the interactions we had with the children as well as with co-teachers.
Thank you for sharing!

Amen! I cannot thank you enough for this validation. Family meal and snack time are more than meeting the kiddos' nutritional needs. Mealtime is an interactive and inclusive curriculum - life skills learning on a plate. From preparation to set up, eating, and all the dynamics and movement associated with the process, the art of conversation, etiquette, problem-solving, and clean-up are additional early learning developmental benefits.The children spend one-third of their day engaged in meals and snacks together.
We use mealtime to teach early developmental concepts in the various learning domains. However, more importantly, mealtime offers concrete multisensory experiences that foster the kiddos' conceptual understanding of humanity's life cycle and relational connectivity. https://healthykidshealthyfuture.org/links/jackson-child-care-serves-meals-family-style/.
Our early learning mealtime adventure begins in the dirt, where food comes. It continues with an outline of the process required to go from the farm to the table.
