Eggplant, grapes, oranges, carrots, red and green apples, celery sticks,
broccoli, bananas, and summer squash are all great foods to use!
Can You Taste the Color?
Before the children arrive, prepare 3 pitchers of frozen lemonade. Use food coloring to color one pitcher orange, one green, and leave one its natural yellow color, so that the three look like: orangeade, limeade, and lemonade.
When the children arrive let them sample the “mystery juice” from each pitcher and guess what flavors they are tasting.
Many people believe their eyes rather than their taste buds.
Discuss how the appearance of food can affect our enjoyment of its taste.
