Kitchen time

Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for a new kind of 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 kind of fungus is waiting for us on the table! 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 “mushroom” 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 fungus and say:” Mushroom” mushrooms have smooth rounded caps and short truncated stems. White mushrooms vary in color from creamy white to light brown and in sizes from small to jumbo. Freshly picked White mushrooms have closed veils (caps that fit closely to the stem) and delicate flavor; mature Whites, with open veils and darkened caps, develop a richer, deeper taste. Their flavor is pleasingly mild and woodsy when raw and more fragrant and meaty when cooked. Hold up the mushroom and say:” Mushroom is white! Look at the color. It is a white mushroom! Mushrooms are organisms (plants without chlorophyll) which thrive by extracting nutrients from dead and decaying plant and animal matter. They vary greatly in their color, texture, shape and properties. "Mushroom" is most often applied to those fungi that have a stem, a cap, and gills (lamella) on the underside of the cap. These gills produce microscopic spores that help the fungus spread across the ground or its occupant surface.(while talking to the baby let him pass his hand on the mushroom You have probably seen mushrooms making someone bigger or acting as a shield against some dangerous monster. These aren’t just popular culture references; they are actually symbolic representations of the actual health benefits of mushrooms. They truly can make you bigger and protect you against diseases and infections, as they are full of proteins, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antibiotics and antioxidants. Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, which help to provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates. B vitamins also play an important role in the nervous system. Put the mushroom in front of the baby and say: Here you are! Experience the texture of this fungus! The baby will take it with both hands stare at it, pass it from one hand to another, turn it upside down, and finally put it in his mouth and start nibbling. Say: Hey! What did you use to feel the soft texture of mushroom? Sure, you used your hands to feel the texture. Now, take a bite of the fungus, chew it and say:  Mushroom has a delicate flavor! Give it back to the baby and let him take a tiny bite, Ask: Did you like it, sweetie? Did you feel the delicate texture of mushroom? Say: Well done, Champ! You have done good work today…and now it’s time to play.
