Can one apple satisfy you? There are many kinds of apples available – green apples, red apples, yellow apples – all are delicious but can they bring you happiness? Obviously, we are simply talking about edible apples, not the famous Apple products that many can’t live without!
During snack time, all the children sit in their highchairs to eat various kinds of fruit puree. For the children that are still learning to use a spoon to feed themselves, it usually takes a little time for the nanny’s to work their way around the group and feed every child. So what should they do while they wait? Here we have a great opportunity to give the older children an activity that encourages the use of their fingers and also improves their chewing ability. Today, our helper snack is an “apple”. This apple is going to help the children develop their fine motor skills with their fingers and also foster friendship and joy among them. Don’t believe us, just look for yourself!
