Tasting Party !

Our day started rockin' when Nolan showed up with Cathy's Corner pancakes. YUM- O !
We have been talking about the five senses this week and today was taste . The children were invited to bring their favorite food for the other children to try. We had brownies, peaches, M&M's , squash, fruity pebbles and jelly bellies. What a day. The worst part of the day was when I decided I had to TASTE too. FAIL! If you knew how hard I worked out yesterday you would know why I am so disappointed. Very rarely since starting with Dr. Tate for weightloss have I " cheated" but today was a BIG ONE. Tomorrow is another day. Back to the kids! We talked about sweet and salty and sour and hot and cold. Our sense of taste is an important one. This would be a great time to remind you that studies have proven that it can take introducing a new food to a child 12 times before they will decide to try it. So, don't give up !
