We discovered a fun way to feed Avery, using little bowls usually used for cooking prep. These particular ones are Pinch Bowls from Sur La Table.  Offered in different colors and made of BPA-free melamine, they come in a set of four.  Certain colors are on sale right now for $3.99.  A great investment for a little price! You can also use these cute bowls to serve dips, sauces and condiments at dinner time.

With a spread of food in front of her, Avery gets the opportunity to choose what she wants to eat and be creative in mixing foods or trying different combinations.  Plus it's an interesting visual way to present food since children tend to eat with their eyes!
