GOURMET GORILLA NEWS: Gourmet Gorilla is starting to have weekly themes; This week's theme is "Try Something New"! Gourmet Gorilla thanks everyone for trying out their new polenta entree last week! They will be refining the recipe a little bit more. Gourmet Gorilla wants to teach kids about eating a variety of good food. Wholesome and fresh, nourishing and above all, delicious food, and they have shared some tips on how to encourage kids to explore and try new things. We want to share these tips with all of you. Be calm. Even if you’re worried about a picky eater, try to take a carefree front. It matters because if you are casual about it, they’ll be casual. Make the lunch room one of the happiest places. Make it the first or second bite, when the kids are hungry. This comes from Karen Le Billon, author of French Kids Eat Everything. And to that end, don’t allow snacks closer than 1 1/2 hours before lunch. A hungrier child is more willing to try something new. Don’t insist that they eat an entire serving. Since the lesson is about introducing variety, cultivating curiosity and encouraging healthy eating, it’s not important whether or not the kids eat a full plate. Make it a habit. Introduce new foods on a continual basis so they are accustomed to exploring. Let them help... in the garden, or food prep. Anyone who’s prepared even part of meal will be so proud that you’ll have another food evangelist at the table urging everyone to try it! Eat new foods and enjoy them yourself. Enthusiasm is contagious. And if you’re not especially into roasted carrots but you know they’re good for the kids, just take a bite or two yourself. And either way, set an example by saying appreciative things. “This looks so good!” Even one little “mmm” can go a long way. Get them excited ahead of time. If your kids are older than toddlers, announce your plan. We’re going to start trying new food this week at lunch! It’s going to be fun! Then give it a whirl. How bad can one bite be? Be patient. It’s been reported that kids will need to try new foods anywhere from 7 to 15 times before acquiring a taste for it. Hope these pointers help!
