Happiness is Ikea Meatballs

As we are having a hard time for my son to eat in his school cafeteria we decided to try to inject it on our lives. Canteen style eating! We started with Ikea. They have what we are looking for array of food to choose from and tray system of ordering.

He is so excited and is showing us the process of ordering from the restaurant! Leading us in the line.

He chose meatballs and french fries with a bit of gravy. And some milk from their drink's dispenser. I am so happy that he was able to show of his new found ordering skills that he learned from just 5 days of (trying) to eat in school.

My son showed us how to eat too, with gusto! With this I am hoping that he will be more comfortable in the next days in eating at his school cafe. This wont be the last of course. I also found out that Tesco Cafe's have the same of system so we will try to eat there as well in the next days.

Here are our photos from the Ikea Cafe.


Here he is excited!

But patiently waiting for his turn

Leading us on what to do next.

Eating his order with gusto!

Sorry for the blurry photo but I just love his smile here and his sunburned face!

Happy with the free milk.

He finished his meal fast!

And being a traffic sign obsessed boy he notice this chair has a NO STOPPING SIGN hidden in it.

I am really struggling with this starting in big school gig. I am trying my best in ways that I know would help my son adjust better in school. I know that we still have a long way to go but I will of course continue to try harder. Hopefully this plan of exposing him to things like this would make it easier for him to learn. Hopeful as always.

Disclaimer: We were not paid to do this post we just really love to eat there in Ikea.
