Feeding Chairs – engender good eating habits from a young age
When it comes to meal times for young children, feeding chairs are an essential piece of equipment in any nursery. Feeding chairs not only provide somewhere safe for the little ones to sit while they eat, they also begin to instill the importance of meal time routines.
It is important that young children associate feeding chairs with meal times so they learn you generally sit at the table to eat. Feeding chairs also provide young children with a sense of independence as they begin to learn to feed themselves. They also learn to socially interact, as in nurseries babies are mostly fed together.
Feeding chairs allow adults to place a variety of different food stuffs in front of the child, allowing them to experiment with different tastes and textures. Feeding chairs and tables engender in children from a young age the importance of healthy, happy meal times.
