Trying New Foods

Encourage kids to try new foods, with a little help from Elmo!

Watch the video together. At snacks, meals, and in-between times, you can sing lines from the song.

Children may not want to try new things the first time (or even the twentieth time!) but keep at it. It takes time. Encourage kids to try a small bite of new foods, and point out others’ choices (“Your older sister had to try okra thirteen times before she liked it, but look how much she likes it now!”).
