Kitchen time

Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly- tasty vegetable! Let’s walk to the kitchen! Hold the baby gently under his arms and tenderly swing/walk/carry him to the kitchen. Make the walk fun .Sing (this is the way I wash my hands) while walking with him. say: here we are. This is our kitchen where we can see food and drinks, learn to cook, and eat Yummy food! We can learn nutrition too! Now we are going to open the fridge and find a round root! Reach out and bring a” beetroot”. Hold up the beetroot and say: Beetroot! Beetroot! The beetroot is a firm, clean global shaped vegetable with sweet –earthy taste and tender to eat. It is characterized by dark purple skin and a distinctive purple flesh.(while talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the round root, make it accessible and touchable for the baby )Other than a food, beets have used as a food coloring and as a medical plant. Beetroots are of exceptional nutritional value; they are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. Beetroots has been gaining in popularity as a “New Super Food” due to recent studies claiming that beets can improve athletic performance, lower blood pressure and increase blood flow. Beetroots are a unique source of “phyto-nutrients called “betalains” that provide antioxidant, anti- inflammatory, and detoxification support. Beetroots decrease the risk of obesity and overall mortality, diabetes and heart diseases. Because of its high fiber content, beetroot helps to prevent constipation and promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract! So as a conclusion, you should eat this purplish-red root due to its multiple health benefits. Take the beetroot in your hand and touch the baby’s nose..Say: nose. Touch the other parts of the face commenting on them: head, forehead, brows, eyes, hands, fingers, chest, tummy, waist, legs, feet. Put the baby in the seat. Approach the root next to his nose and say, smell it now, Mmm! Beetroot smells earthy! Touch the baby’s face. Say: It’s rough! Put the baby in the seat. Cut the beet into small cubes and put them in a bowl and put it in front of the baby. The baby will directly put his hands in the bowl in order to touch and mix the red cubes say: dry! Dry! Here the baby will start to depend on himself in playing and mixing the pieces together .You will find that he is attracted to the lovely color, so he will approach a cube to his mouth and start sucking it (keeping an eye on the baby in this stage is very important) . Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested. Provide the rest time.
