The Today I Ate a Rainbow blog recently did a review of a book called Getting to YUM: The 7 Secrets of Raising Eager Eaters
, and it sounded really cool, so I checked out the website, and signed up for their Taste Training Plan. It says it’s for toddlers, but the “games” (experiments, really) are geared for kids 5 or 6 years old and up, and our whole family is going to be giving it a try. According to the website:
The Toddler Taste Training Plan is a 10 week plan designed for toddlers between 2 and 4 years of age.
Your toddler will be introduced to a range of fun flavours and different vegetables–a great way to help them become a good eater for life.
Each week you’ll receive a fun newsletter with:
– easy, tasty recipes
– a grocery list
– Feature Veggie coloring pages
– a fun game or activity
– tips for healthy eating routines
At the end of 10 weeks, you’ll receive a personalized Taste Training Graduation Certificate.
The first week will be relatively easy, because it features carrots which we all like, more or less. Shrike likes them just about any way you can prepare them, Peeper likes them raw or super-cooked, like in soup, and I’m still working on it, but I put tiny pieces in my salad, and will take a few bites of a stick if Peeper shoves it in my face.
Other weeks will be a bit more challenging for some of us, and some weeks will be a challenge for all of us, but we’re going to give it a go.
Wish us luck!
