Do you find your child loves snacking all day long? Maybe you feel like your role as a loving, patient parent has slowly morphed into a fulltime snack-preparer for the tiny dictator in your home.
These visual prompt cards for mealtimes are a great way to support your toddler, preschooler or kindergartner to gain independence around mealtimes and food and stop the constant howls of “I’m huuuungry!” or “Is it nearly lunchtime yeeeeet?!”
Print the cards off and display them in your kitchen to help your child prepare for their next mealtime or snack! We chose to laminate ours and then add magnetic tape to the back so we can stick them to the fridge and onto our Time Timer Magnetic Board (affiliate link).
Inside the pack, you’ll find three different varieties included so you can choose the style that will work best for your unique family!
- Cards for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, bedtime snack, dessert, munch & crunch
- A set of cards that display an age appropriate clock and analogue time for each mealtime (breakfast 7am, morning tea 9:30am, lunch 12:00pm, afternoon tea 3pm, dinner 5:30pm, bedtime snack 6:45pm, dessert 6:30pm, munch & crunch 10am)
- A set of cards that display a blank age appropriate clock and space for you to write the analogue time for each mealtime
- A set of cards that display two visual picture prompts and the written word – perfect for younger children who don’t need to link the mealtime into a specific time. These work great alongside a visual timer – we love the Time Timer clocks from Amazon US with a whiteboard attached or on their own from Amazon AUS (affiliate links).
If you’re ready to get into a routine around mealtimes, these visual prompt cards for mealtimes will be perfect for you and your family!
If you require different vocabulary, please reach out via our contact form and request an adaptation there. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate individual changes to times at this stage.
