Prep: None / Activity Time: 4-5 Minutes

Mealtime is a great time to strike up a conversation with your baby. Explore the five senses as you feed your baby at mealtime.

  • Your baby’s food and drink
  • Your meal

Step 1: During mealtime, talk to your baby about how the food you are eating and drinking looks, smells, sounds, tastes and feels.  

Step 2: Talk about how you prepared your baby’s meal and your own meal. When your baby adds to the conversation with noises, words and gestures, respond and keep the conversation going!
