Say : Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly-tasty fruits ! 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 (Mary had a little lamb) 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 zesty fruit ! Reach out and bring an orange ! Hold up the orange and say :” orange”! Show it to the baby and say “ orange, orange” ! . The orange is orange in color! The orange is orange!! . The orange fruit is a member of the citrus family . Orange is round with a pebbly texture . It is covered in a thick, orangey-yellow skin, and the inside is divided into segments of juicy pulp. ( While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fruit ,put it from one hand to another ,make it accessible and touchable for the baby ).Orange can be eaten fresh ,or processed for its juice or fragrant peel. This delicious fruit contains an impressive list of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals for normal growth and development and overall well being . Most citrus fruits have a good deal with “Vitamin C”, “Vitamin C” protects your body from heart disease and cancer. It boosts your immunity and helps keep skin looking beautiful. Oranges are “Vitamin A” rich. “Vitamin A” helps your eyes absorb light, and improves night vision. They are also a very good source of “B- complex Vitamins”. These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish. All the “Fiber” in oranges help lower cholesterol levels, because it picks up excess cholesterol compounds in the gut and pushes them out in the elimination process . Take the orange 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, feet . Put the baby in the seat . Approach the orange next to his nose and say , smell it now ,Mmm! Orange smells zesty ! Touch the baby’s face . Say : It’s pebbly ! Put the baby in the seat . Peel the orange, remove the skin and cut the orange in slices (don’t forget to remove the seeds found in the orange)and put them in a bowl . Take the baby’s hand in your hand and help him touch and mix them say : juicy ! juicy ! Guide him by playing and mixing the slices together.( the baby will get excited and start yelling while playing especially when he feels the juicy and slippery texture of the orange!) Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested . Provide the rest time.
