Babies Unit: Cooking and Mixing

This week we talked about how babies change. We discussed the different types of foods that babies eat and that babies need to eat soft foods because they don’t have teeth yet. Here are some cooking and mixing activities to do with your child related to our “Babies” unit. 

Make Baby Food

Talk with your child about what types of food they think babies eat and why. Invite your child to create baby food at home. This can be done by pureeing steamed fruits or vegetables in a blender. Consider inviting your child to help you follow an existing recipe to create the baby food or to write their own baby food recipes.
