Eating With Toddler Spoons


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

In order to force myself to eat slower and ENJOY my food, I choose to eat when possible (here at home, anyway) with one of my daughters' colorful toddler spoons. I take smaller bites, chew things up better before swallowing, and I feel as though I eat more simply because it takes me longer to eat.

    This is a GREAT idea! I also bought some chop sticks to get me to eat slower! Had to watch youtube demo to learn to use them but I'm getting better with practice! emoticon

    I did the same thing the other night when my husband was at work :D :D I laughed at myself for the first few bites, then I realized it took me longer to eat my yogurt, and I felt fuller and I didn't need to eat anything else :) :)

    I use a toddler spoon for eating my yougert and no sugar puddings. They do make the food last longer and I get more bites that way! Maybe I should try it with my cereal too!

    I eat all dessert this way, and now eat the higher calorie items on diet this way, takes longer and gives your brain time to catch up the the ole tummy.
