Children know when they’re hungry and when they’re not. It’s important to help them keep this signal. To determine what portion to serve, we can ask: Are you a little hungry or very hungry? Use this game with your little one so they can point out what they’d like to eat, little or big.
We eat a mix of fruits and vegetables of all colours. Look at these foods. They’re all different. Match each food to its shape and colour. You can continue playing with shapes and colours when preparing your kids’ plates. Why not use berries to make fun shapes from time to time?
When you get home, unpack your bags with your child. Have them name the actions you’re doing. Show where you put away different foods. Offer them a taste. Children who are old enough can help out too! They can take fruit from the bag and hand them to you so you can put them in the fridge. You can also ask your child to find the onions in the bag so you can put them away.
