Ideas for Home

It is fun to explore all of the sensory aspects of new foods. This month, explore green foods. You can explore foods in more ways than just eating them. You can touch, smell, kiss, and lick them. This is a time when "playing with your food" does not break the rules! Talk about the foods (i.e., "How do they feel?", "Are they hot or cold?", "Are they hard or soft?", "What is their favorite?") Here are some examples of fun , green foods: lime Jello, fruit snacks, lime Skittles, edamame, veggie straws, spinach tortillas, Granny Smith apples, pears, lime yogurt, and pistachios.
