Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly- tasty vegetables! Let’s walk to the kitchen! Make the walk fun .Sing (if you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands,) while walking with him….say: here we are. This is our kitchen where we can learn more and more nutrition lessons! Now we are going to the table where I have already placed a new kind of fruit! Say: “Let’s sit at the table and discover its secret!” Put the baby in the seat and approach the seat next to the kitchen table. Put the “banana” in front of him to have a closer look at it, also to feel its texture between his hands! Sit next to the baby. Point to the fruit and say: ”banana!” Hold up the “banana” and say: “Yellow! Banana is yellow, it’s a yellow banana!” Banana is the most popular fresh fruit in all over the world. It’s a creamy and delicious long thick edible fruit that comes with a safety envelop! (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fruit ).Banana is composed of soft, easily digestible flesh made up of simple sugars that upon consumption instantly replenish energy and revitalizes the body. Bananas are known to reduce swelling, aid in weight loss, strengthen the nervous system and help with production of white blood cells, all due to the high level of “Vitamin B6” that bananas contain. Bananas are good source of “Potassium”, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function, and promote bone health. Bananas are rich in the soluble fiber “Pectin” that assists healthy digestion and eases out constipation. Also bananas have “Antacid effect” that protects against stomach ulcers. Evidently, Bananas are a healthy source of “fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin c, and various antioxidant and phyto nutrients”. Take the banana in your hand and touch the baby’s nose and say: nose! Touch the other parts of the face commenting on them: head, forehead, brows, eyes, hands, fingers, chest, tummy, waist, legs, and feet. Put the baby in the seat. Approach the banana next to his nose and say, smell it now, Mmm! Banana smells appealing! Touch the baby’s face. Say: soft! Put the baby in the seat. Peel the banana, remove the skin and cut it in slices and put them in a bowl. The baby will put his hand in the bowl in order to touch and mix them say: soft and mush!!!! Guide him by playing and mixing the slices together.( the baby will get excited especially when he feels the slimy texture of the banana!) Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested. Provide the rest time.
