Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly-tasty fruits! Let’s walk to the kitchen. Make the walk fun .Sing (The alphabet song…a,b,c,d,e,f,g,) While walking with him say: here we are. This is our kitchen where we can learn more about fruits and vegetables. Now we are going to the table where I have already placed an exotic fruit! Point to the kiwi and say:” It’s kiwi”! Put the baby in the seat and approach the seat next to the kitchen table. Put the kiwi in front of the baby to have a closer look at it, also to feel its texture between his hands! Sit next to him. Hold up the fruit and say: “kiwi! Kiwi is a brown, egg sized fruit. Inside of this fruit featuring brown fuzzy skin resides a brilliant, semi-translucent emerald green flesh with rows of small, dark, edible seeds, and a light cream colored center. Point to the fruit’s skin and say:” Look at the color! Brown! Kiwi is brown. It’s a brown kiwi!” Smell the fruit and say: Wow! It has a lovely tutti fruiti odor! Approach the kiwi next to the baby’s nose and let him sniff the sweet fragrance of the fruit, say:” smell it now, Mmm! Kiwi smells sweet and lovely! “Ask the baby: What did you use to smell, Champ? (Point to baby’s nose) Absolutely true! You used your nose to smell as I did. Smell is the sense that enables one to perceive odors; it depends on the stimulation of sense organs in the nose by small particles carried in inhaled air. It is important also for the enjoyment of food, since flavor is a blend of taste and smell. ! Give the kiwi to the baby and say: soft and slightly firm skin! Can you feel its softness? Sure, kiwi is soft. Now, tell me what did you use to feel the fruit’s texture, baby?” “That’s right! You used your hand to feel the texture! And more specifically it’s the skin that covers your hands that helps you feel the texture. So our skin is the organ of touch!” The baby will turn the kiwi upside down, he will move it from one hand to another, he will try to squash it and he may lick it! Say: It has no taste! But its flesh has a different flavor! Let’s try it! Slice the kiwi into tiny pieces, place them in a bowl, Take a tiny piece and give it to the baby, say: taste it baby and discover the sweet and acidic flavor of kiwi! Before he puts it in his mouth, the baby will pass it from one hand to another; he will even squish it before eating it. Say: Did you like its sweet flavor? What did you use to taste, sweetie? Yes! ! You used your tongue (Point to the baby’s tongue) to taste, and thanks to the taste buds that are found on your tongue and allow you to experience tastes. You did a great job today, baby! Now, it’s time to play!! Put the bowl that contains kiwi pieces in front of him and allow him to squish, mix and splash them. Provide the rest time.
