Small, very small children instinctively pull into their mouths everything they can reach. Reflexes, what to do, is one of the ways to know the world around you. And «there is sand» has happened to many, which is a sin to conceal, and some parents just shrug it off, they say, there are minerals and it’s useful. But the young mother Ellie Kristin from Illinois decided to turn the attack for good. And she came up with edible sand, which her 7-month-old daughter eats with pleasure.
Let’s take it apart in parts. We need a quick breakfast in the form of cereals, rings, plates, etc. Pure cereals and nothing superfluous.
After grinding, a substance similar to sand is obtained
It remains only to fill this edible sand in the tray and throw toys there, for interest
The resulting mixture is safe, edible and even useful — the child will eat and get fat to the delight of his grandmother. The main argument is that at such a young age it is useless to explain what can be done and what cannot be done, so it is easier to protect the environment itself than to raise a child. And no, he will not get a bad habit, because ordinary sand in comparison with the sweet mass is tasteless in general. Tested on Ellie Kristin’s husband. The only disadvantage is that the process is dirty, so it’s better not to limit yourself to one tray and lay a bedspread.
