Cooking games with kids: Tricky textures
Feeling and getting to know your food is a big part of learning to eat properly. You can't just pop something in to your mouth and not be sure about the feel first. Imagine eating an oyster without first ever touching it! YUK! Get the kids learning all about the feel of their food.
