Unit 1 – Food socialisation in kindergartens: Role of teachers, peers and ambience

In this unit I will learn how to:

  1. better understand child´s sense of taste
  2. cooperate with children and motivate them for a new taste
  3. use the role of peers and ambience to increase their capacity of trying new dishes

Introduction into the topic:

You may be surprised, but taste is genetically determined. Some children are more prone to certain tastes (especially sweet) than others. Accepting new tastes and new foods is a learning process which takes time. On this journey are especially important roles of: parents, teachers and peers. Children eat in their own manner, very different from adults, because we shouldn´t forget: eating is for them learning.
