FUN FOOD ACTIVITIES FOR TODDLERS
Put the fun into experimenting with food to help little ones love fruit and veg!
Learning about food
Try growing some food at home or encourage your little one to help wash veggies or peel a banana. Exploring food without eating it will take the pressure off and they can discover fruit and veggies for themselves.
Pop to the shop
Next time you’re at the supermarket, spend time in the fresh section allowing your little one to touch and ask questions. Get them to choose a new fruit or veg to take home, explore and experiment with.
Getting hands on
Cut up grapes, grapefruits and have fun looking at what they’re like inside. Activities like these that get your little one to touch new foods is a fun distraction and helps reduce their anxiety of new textures.
Keep it simple with your little chef, choose recipes where they can get involved.
