A sensory diet is a group of physical activities to help kids stay alert and calm at the right times. It can be used as part of sensory integration therapy.

A sensory diet can help “even things out” if kids are overexcited at times or too tired at others. It can give kids the sensory input they need to be in a “just right” state.

This template includes examples of sensory diet activities for preschoolers and grade-schoolers. It also includes a worksheet. You can use it to keep track of how your child feels before and after each activity.

If your child isn’t responding positively to an activity, it’s best to stop that activity. (There’s also an example of a filled-out worksheet, to give you a better idea of how to use it.)

If you use the worksheet consistently, patterns may emerge. You’ll start to see the type of sensory input your child needs ( tactile, visual, auditory, oral motor, movement, or heavy work) and at what time of day.

It helps to consult with an occupational therapist if you’re interested in a sensory diet. The therapist can monitor the sensory diet and adjust it for your child’s needs.
