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 (I love you, you love me) while walking with him….say: here we are. This is our kitchen where we can learn more and more nutrition lessons! Now let’s see what is waiting for you on the table! Point to the table and say: Look at the table. Do you see a red apple and an orange? Now, we will open the fridge and get one more apple and one more orange and talk about all of them! Let’s sit at the table and discover their secrets! Put the baby in the seat and approach the seat next to the kitchen table. Put the fruits in front of him to have a closer look at them, also to feel their textures between his hands! Sit next to the baby; Hold up the orange, show it to the baby and say: “orange!. Orange is round with a pebbly texture. It is covered in a thick, orangey-yellow skin, and the inside is divided into segments of juicy pulp. Orange can be eaten fresh, or processed for its juice or fragrant peel. (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fruit!) Give one orange to the baby and say: This orange is cool! It isn’t cold because it was on the table, so it has the kitchen’s temperature! Now, give him the second orange and say: Cold! This orange is cold! Do you know why, baby? Because this orange was in the fridge where the temperature is higher than the kitchen’s temperature, so this orange is colder than the previous one! Orange is orange in color! Do you know that with orange as your favorite color, you are warm, optimistic, extroverted, good-natured and a generally agreeable person! Now, hold up the apple; show it to the baby and say: “red apple!” Apples are one of the healthiest food a person can eat .This fruit has so many virtues. An apple is beautiful, tasty and has a fine fragrance. Apple fruit is oval; its outer peel is red. (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fruit!) Apple is a good source of soluble fiber that helps prevent heart disease. Give one apple to the baby and say: This apple is cool! It isn’t cold because it was on the table, so it has the kitchen’s temperature! Now, give him the second apple and say: Cold! This apple is cold! Do you know why, baby? Because this apple was in the fridge where the temperature is higher than the kitchen’s temperature, so this apple is colder than the previous one! This apple is red. Look at the color, red! Red is a warm and positive color associated with our will to survive! If you favor the personality color red you have a passion and enthusiasm for life and are not afraid to pursue your dreams. Peel the orange, remove the skin and cut it in slices (don’t forget to remove the seeds found in the orange) and put them in a bowl. Then, cut the apple into small cubes and put them in another bowl. He will surely enjoy discovering the texture of each fruit when you put each bowl alone in front of him, especially when he feels the texture of the orange. He will try to put a small piece of each fruit in his mouth in order to taste it. (Always supervise the baby while eating to make sure that he is safe!) Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested. Provide the rest time.
