Bibs for Messy Eating

Are you looking for a way to protect your child’s clothing during messy eating? At different development stages, your child may display messy eating. As you support your child to become more independent eaters, they may have a higher tendency to get their clothes dirty.

If you are searching for a comfortable bib for your child, the designs of these bibs will help. These bibs have a subtle, over-the-shoulder shape which provides the dignified look of a tabard but with a short back. This makes it easy to put on and take off. The bibs have large pockets which can be folded flat to the back, out of sight, if desired, and have a stretchy edging material for excellent comfort. In addition, the tabards have wide shoulder coverage and are ergonomically shaped on the front to enable free arm movement at mealtimes. This will help to ensure your child is comfortable while protecting their clothes from messy eating.

Messy Eating and Sensory Needs

If you have a child who has sensory seeking needs, they may tend to play with their food. This can result in messy eating. Allowing your child to experiment and play with foods can also promote their fine motor skills. Giving your child the space to explore their senses by playing with food can also help with easing the comfortability of trying new foods. The more a child becomes familiar with the look and feel of food, the more likely they will be to try to taste this item. This again is subjective, as every child is different and playing with food may be because they do not like their food. Food exploration due to sensory needs can result in your child having messy eating behaviours.

Strategies for supporting mealtimes

You may experience messy eating with your child due to sensory, motor or mobility reasons. If your child has sensory needs they may squish food within their hands or play with their food. If their needs are due to mobility, they may need support with independent eating. Alternatively, your child may show messy eating due to behavioural reasons. There are various strategies for supporting your child’s eating habits. This includes praising your child for eating, sitting together during eating times and breaking food into smaller chunks.
