Indoor Activities for Kids

Babies perceive the sweet taste in the womb. However, it is outside where the baby develops a sense of taste and experiment with new flavors such as sour, salty, bitter, and sweet. It is believed that foods mothers eat during pregnancy significantly influence the foods that children prefer.

Kids will first perceive the sweet and bitter flavors and then the salty and sour ones; this does not mean that children will accept the food we give them to try without a fight.

Far from it, it will be a slow process that requires a lot of patience since children do not accept new foods easily. We have to give them a portion of food to try several times to be accepted by them.

We can adequately stimulate children’s sense of taste by offering a varied and fun menu during the process. We must avoid yelling, fighting, or scolding at mealtime. That will also affect the perception of food and will not be well received.

Remember that dinnertime should be a special and pleasant moment, not only because of the food we are going to eat but also because it is the perfect hour to talk with our family. You can talk about things that happened during the day; it is the ideal moment to strengthen our affective bonds.
