Try Something New: Preschooler Healthy Eating Sessions

Next On: N/A

Preschooler Healthy Eating


11am - 11.30am the first Friday of each month


Market Square, near the stage



Welcome to our new monthly preschooler healthy eating event: Try Something New.

In this fun, hands-on session,  Eat for Life educators, Lisa and/or Gemma, will introduce four exciting in-season fruit and/or veggies to your inquisitive (and maybe fussy?) preschooler, as they engage the senses.

Preschooler Healthy Eating

  • Let’s touch it ….how does it feel? Is it smooth or bumpy? Is it round or long? Does it feel firm or squishy?
  • Let’s smell it …does it have a mild or strong smell? Do you like the smell?
  • Let’s taste it …how would you describe the taste? Is it sweet? Is it sour? Do you like it?
  • Let’s think about how we might use it …in a salad, stir fry, soup, fruit salad or maybe in the lunchbox?

This is a great chance to introduce your little one to fruit and veggies, getting them to think about what they eat all while having a heap of fun at the same time!

Running on the first Friday of each month between 11 – 11.30am, be sure to arrive early so your little one does not miss out!

Upcoming dates:

  • Friday, Febuary 7 2020
  • Friday, March 6 2020
