This activity is great for extending your child's knowledge and understanding of the world around them, as they learn about different types of food and where they come from. It's also a good way of developing their fine motor skills as they prepare ingredients and handle utensils. And it teaches them an important life skill - how to prepare tasty, nutritious meals (and the occasional yummy treat!).
How to extend the fun
Ask your child if they know what colour and shape a lemon is? Explain that lemon juice is often squeezed from a lemon to make other food taste extra yummy, eg some people like lemon juice squeezed over fish dishes or pancakes.
