With no trips abroad planned this year, we want to take you and your family on a journey to five countries without the need of a suitcase. Research shows that globe-trotting kids tend to be more successful in school, be more independent and have higher self-esteem, confidence, adaptability, and sensitivity. Teaching kids about the world is a wonderful way to help them learn open-mindedness and compassion while getting them excited about the beauty our global community has to offer!
Food exploration can teach children of all ages about culture and traditions but also, a thing or two about being flexible, all in the comfort of your home. To raise a foodie, introducing new flavours at a young age is a great start. And parents, make sure your appetites are ready, too! Leading by example is a crucial first step: research shows that children are most likely to prefer the foods their parents eat. Put your adventurous side into action by trying new cuisines. Inviting kids into the kitchen and getting them involved in meal decisions – from the market to the dinner table – is the best way to expand your child’s palate. By broadening their horizons with cuisines from around the globe, you will cultivate an appreciation and curiosity about food.
