I discovered this app, Eating Safely a couple of weeks ago when searching for a functional app to help teach safety in the kitchen. This life skills app helps guide children through step by step instructions in preparing meals and using appliances in the kitchen safely. Since my little one loves to “help” with the dishwasher, I reviewed the steps and safety tips with him which helped the next time we did it together. This app can help reinforce appropriate safe behavior in the kitchen in addition to improving sequencing and problem solving. This app is especially useful for those children with special needs, specifically older children helping out in the kitchen. I would love to see some updates on this app with regard to the pictures used in the some of the categories, specifically mealtime. Great app with lots of potential for functional outcomes!
