This activity promotes development and learning by encouraging children to investigate new tastes and learn about healthy foods.
- Unfamiliar foods (e.g. kiwi, watermelon, or pomegranate)
- Journal or paper
- Writing or drawing tools
Participants: This activity is intended for adult/child interaction.
- Place foods on the table and encourage your child to taste each one.
- Suggest children create a recipe using the ingredients. Ask: why did you select those ingredients for the recipe? How much of each will you use? What would happen if you changed the amounts/quantities?
