conduct a taste test
One of our favorite easy and interesting activities to do is to have a taste test.
All you have to do is pick several versions of one type of food, make up a chart with the characteristics you will be judging and start tasting.
This can be done as simple or complicated as you like, depending on your kids ages.
We have done this with apples, cheese, nuts and seeds, olives, ice cream and even candy bars.
Kids will try anything if it is in a taste test and are sometimes even able to broaden their palates.
