Kitchen time

Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly- tasty herbs! 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 (hush little baby don’t say a word) 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 to get ginger root (rhizome)! Say: “ginger! Ginger! It’s ginger”. This root is “horn shaped, juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. It is aromatic, pungent and spicy. It has brownish skin! Look at the color, brown. It is brown. Ginger contains numerous anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds beneficial to health such as gingerols that also help improve the intestinal motility. It also holds good amount of minerals like potassium, magnesium, and copper. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Touch the nose with ginger root and 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 and approach ginger next to his nose and say, smell it now, Mmm! Ginger smells fresh and lemony! Take the ginger and touch the baby’s face. Say ginger is rough and dry but the flesh of the ginger is wet and fibrous. Let’s discover its flesh now! Put the baby in the seat. Wash and slice ginger into thick rings. Put them in a bowl, take the baby’s hand in your hand and help him touch and mix them say wet... they’re wet. You will realize that he enjoys playing with these wet rings. Guide him by playing and mixing the slices together. Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested. Provide the rest time.
