The DSA inform us that the www.downsyndromecentre.ie website have an article which could be of interest to readers with a baby or young child.

'Eat together, talk together, learn together' is their slogan which emphasises that children who are part of family mealtimes, even long before they can converse, benefit developmentally long term.

The website appears to be brimming with useful guidance. The item on 'picky eaters' suggests ways in which fussy eating is discouraged and new foods accepted with little problem. Other topics include beginning to cycle, singing, speech and language , reading and grinding teeth!
