One of our latest ventures to get past the sensory properties of passion fruit.. They were tadpoles and eyeballs and it was fun. And then we encouraged Master 4 to lick his fingers. Tasted pretty nice. Next was to try some juice (without having to deal with the tadpoles). Then we played ‘close your eyes’ and check if you can notice the (1) tadpole. And lastly, ‘can you count how many tadpoles are in your mouth with your tongue?!’. Now he is eating passion fruit. Still cautious and needing encouragement but happy to give it a go!
Remember you can use any of these moves or your own on other foods too! What will you try with your children tomorrow?
