Healthy Habits - 4 food groups

This summer, our project will delve into the world of fruits, emphasizing health habits and sensory exploration.

One of the primary goals of our summer project is to promote healthy eating habits. Fruits are a cornerstone of a balanced diet, providing essential nutrients that support overall health.

. Each week, we will spotlight a different fruit family.

Sensory Exploration

To truly appreciate fruits, we will engage all our senses—sight, touch, smell, taste, and even hearing. This multisensory approach will not only enhance our understanding and enjoyment of fruits but also develop our ability to describe them vividly.


We will begin by observing the fruits' colors, shapes, and sizes. Each fruit has a unique appearance that can be described using a rich palette of descriptive words. For example, we might describe a strawberry as "vibrantly red with tiny, glistening seeds dotting its surface" or a pineapple as "a rough, spiky exterior with a crown of green, sword-like leaves."


Next, we will explore the texture of fruits. Participants will handle the fruits, noting whether they are smooth, rough, bumpy, or soft. This tactile experience will help us find the right words to describe each fruit’s texture. For instance, the skin of a peach can be described as "fuzzy and velvety," while the skin of a lemon is "firm and slightly bumpy."


The aroma of fruits is a significant part of their appeal. We will take time to smell each fruit, noting the intensity and nature of its fragrance. Descriptive words might include "citrusy," "sweet," "fragrant," or "tangy." For example, a mango’s scent might be described as "rich and tropical, with a hint of floral sweetness."


Tasting the fruits is perhaps the most enjoyable part of our exploration. We will savor each fruit, focusing on its flavor profile. Is it sweet, sour, tangy, or a combination of flavors? Describing taste involves nuanced language. For example, we might describe a kiwi as "a blend of tartness and sweetness, with a hint of tropical zest" or a watermelon as "refreshingly sweet with a hint of crisp, watery coolness."


Finally, we will listen to the sounds fruits make when they are cut, bitten into, or peeled. The crisp snap of an apple, the juicy squish of a grape, and the satisfying crunch of a carrot can all be described to add another layer of sensory detail.
