Explore New Foods

Everytime we go to the Asian store my daughter has a lot of questions about different kind of fruits and vegetables they sell.We always ended up buying a lot of foods that we are not planning to buy. Seeing, trying, comparing and talking about different foods is part of learning. Through new food experiences we can teach children that every family has its own custom and cultures and often these cultures are reflected in the foods a person eats. Encourage children to compare their family's favorite meals with friends and to open their minds to trying one of their freinds favorites. Kids also tends to be more willing to try new foods when they get to pick them. Begin to make shopping a food exploration. maybe this week you'll pick something new and green, next time maybe something new and round. Visiting food shops can also be fun and educational.
