Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly- tasty fruit! Let’s walk to the kitchen! Hold the baby gently under his arms and tenderly swing/walk/carry him to the kitchen. Make the walk fun. Sing (Itsy Bitsy spider) while walking with him….say here we are. This is our kitchen where we can see food and drinks, learn to cook, and eat Yummy food! We can learn nutrition too! Now we are going to open the fridge and get a fresh lemon! Reach out and bring the lemon. Say look, lemon! Lemon! This is a lemon. It is a kind of fruit that grows on trees. This yellow fruit ranges between oval and teardrop shape. Yellow lemon! Look at the color. It is yellow. Lemon is a citrus fruit! It smells fresh and clean! It has a zesty aroma and tangy flavor! (While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fresh lemon, put it from one hand to another, make it accessible and touchable for the baby) Lemon is an excellent source of vitamin “C”. This vitamin helps our body to resist against infections like flu and colds. Vitamin “C” is also vital to the function of a strong immune system. Lemon peel contains substances that are effective for brain disorders. So, lemons are important to our body, they protect our brain, strengthen our immunity, and defend our body against infections. Touch the nose with the lemon 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 and approach the lemon next to the baby’s nose and let him sniff the freshness of the fruit, smell it now, Mmm! The lemon smells zesty! Take the lemon and touch the baby’s face. Say lemon is rough! Can you feel each dimple on it? Slice the lemon into wedges, place them in a bowl, take the baby’s hand in your hand and help him touch and mix the wedges saying..Juicy..It’s juicy….there are seeds within the segments. You will realize that he enjoys playing with these wedges. Guide him by playing and mixing the wedges together. Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested. Provide the rest time.
