Experimenting with Fruit!


The Sweetpeas have loved experimenting with different fruits from around the world. Food tasting is an important part of a child’s development as it allows them to begin to recognise their likes and dislikes with food. This activity will also help them recognise some of their five senses.
We all took turns to smell, feel and taste the different fruit. Some children showed that they had favourites by going back to the same fruit and some showed that they disliked them by using single words to communicate.
We also enjoyed weighing the different fruits and seeing which one was the heaviest. The children showed good turn taking and patience when doing this.
All in all this activity was a huge success!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
