Today the children in our larger pre-school room have experienced different exotic fruits as part of their food tasting activity.
They have tried different fruits such as dragon fruit, grapefruit, lemon, mango, passion fruit and peach.
The learning intentions of this activity was for the children to taste, describe textures and smell the scents of fruits they may not have tried before. The children were using different and extended vocabulary such as sour, juicy, soft etc. They also were able to explore and acquire new tastes, likes and dislikes in new foods.
