Flying Saucer Pizza


Corinne Carrot says: Help your child learn about new foods. Talk about the color, shape, smell, and texture of the new food. It is OK if your child plays with, smells, touches, licks, or even spits out new foods because this is how your child learns and becomes familiar with new foods.

Read Together!

Reading books about food and physical activity helps your child get better at reading and promotes their health. Try reading Oliver’s Vegetables by Vivian French to get your child thinking about what kinds of vegetables they would like on their Flying Saucer Pizza.
