Make the walk fun .Sing (roses are red, violets are blue!) 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 colorful kinds of fruits! Say: “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. Start with the plum. Point to the fruit and say:” plum”! Plums have soft and smooth skin. Its pulp is juicy, succulent and light blue in color. Plums have sweet and tart taste with pleasant aroma! (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fruit to feel its texture!) Peel the fruit point to its flesh and say:”purple!” Plum is purple! It’s a purple plum! Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Now, put the kiwi in front of the baby 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. Peel the fruit; point to its flesh and say:” Look at the color!” Green” Kiwi is green. It’s a green kiwi!” ”! Green is the color of balance and harmony. It is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart. Green is also the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fruit). Finally, put the apricot in front of the baby and say:” apricot!” apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh, not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Some describe their flavor as almost musky, with a faint tartness that lies somewhere between a peach and a plum. Point to the fruit and say: “orange!”  Apricot is orange! It’s an orange apricot! Do you know that with orange as your favorite color, you are warm, optimistic, extroverted, good-natured and a generally agreeable person. Orange offers emotional strength in difficult times. It helps us to bounce back from disappointments and despair, assisting in recovery from grief! Now, put the three fruits on the table in front of the baby and say: Do you see something green? Yes, kiwi is green! Point to the kiwi and let the baby touch it. Great! Now, what is orange on the table? The apricot is orange! Hold up the apricot and show it to the baby and say: This apricot is orange! Let’s find something purple. Aha! Plum is purple! Hold up the plum and show it to the baby and say: Purple! Plum is purple. Finally, Cut the fruits into slices and put each kind in a bowl. Put each bowl alone in front of the baby and allow time to play with the slices by himself (but under your control) and feel the textures. Provide the rest time.
