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 (Hey! Diddle..Diddle the cat and the fiddle) 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 let’s see what kind of fruit we will find in the fruit bowl on the counter top! Reach out and bring an avocado ! Hold up the fruit and say :” avocado”! Show it to the baby and say “ avocado! avocado! Avocado is often called “alligator pear” because it tends to be shaped like a pear and have green bumpy skin like an alligator”. Hold up the fruit and say: “green!” show it to the baby and say: “green, green!” Avocado is green! ( 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 ). Avocado is a buttery flavorful fruit. Unlike most other fruits, Avocados feature high fat content and carry more calories. However, they are very rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Their creamy pulp is loaded with ”Heart Healthy” monounsaturated fatty acids. Avocados are a great source of “lulein”,and “carotenoid” that works as an antioxidant and helps protect against eye disease. Avocados contain fiber, including soluble and insoluble, both of which your body needs to keep the digestive system running smoothly. Take the avocado 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 avocado next to his nose and say: smell it now ,Mmm! Avocado smells cool ! Touch the baby’s face . Say : bumpy ! Put the baby in the seat . Cut the avocado into small pieces and put them in a bowl . The baby will put his hand in the bowl in order to touch and mix them say : creamy and squishy! Guide him by playing and mixing the pieces together.( the baby will get excited and start yelling while playing especially when he feels the creamy texture of the avocado, now he will try to put a little piece in his mouth, so you have to keep an eye on him!) Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested . Provide the rest time.
