Some Wednesdays Ms.Joan has been leading cooking activities with the children. This week they made garlic bread. The children have also made mashed potatoes and eggs and tomatoes. The children really enjoy cooking activities. Even though the activities seem quite simple, the children get to use their fine motor skills with utensils and learn good hygiene habits for food handling. Being exposed to different kinds of foods and having pride in making the food themselves, makes the children more interested in tasting new things.
Thoughts for families:Do you involve your child in food shopping or food preparation at home? Do you ask your child for their thoughts or ideas for planning meals?
