If your baby is a picky eater or a picky person, in general here's a game that makes it fun to be picky. And this game is tasty, too, since your baby can eat the game materials as you play.

You need:

Six types of dry cereals, oat rings, rice cereal, flaked cereal, shaped cereal, etc.

Six bowls

Directions:

1. Pour a small amount of each cereal into a separate bowl.

4. Place one piece of each cereal into each of the six muffin cups each cereal should have its own cup.

5. Ask your baby to match the bowls of cereal to the samples in the muffin tin.

6. Have her fill each muffin cup with the matching cereal, using her fingers.

7. Tell your baby she can eat some of the cereals as she plays.
