Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly-tasty food! 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 a walnut? 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 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. Point to the apple’s skin and say: The apple is red. Look at the color! This apple is red! It’s a red apple! Now, hold up the walnut and say: “walnut! “ Walnuts are rounded, single-seeded stone used for their sweet tasting edible meat! The removal of the husk reveals the wrinkly walnut shell, (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the nut to feel the wrinkles on the shell!) Which is usually found in two segments (three-segment shells can also form). The shell is dark brown in color, encloses the kernel or meat, which is usually made up of two halves separated by a partition! The walnuts have been revered since ancient times as symbol of intellectuality, since their bi-lobed kernels have convoluted surface inside the shell resembling as that of the human brain! The nuts are enriched with many health-benefiting nutrients, especially omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for your body! Walnuts are rich source of energy and contain minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health! The form of vitamin E found in walnuts is somewhat unusual, and particularly beneficial. Use a nut cracker to retrieve the nut meat, crack them into small pieces and put them in a bowl. Then, cut the apple into small cubes and put them in another bowl. The baby will surely enjoy discovering the texture of food when you put each bowl alone in front of him, especially when he feels the new texture of the walnut, he will also enjoy listening to the” croaky” sound of nuts . He will try to put a small piece of each food 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.
