Getting your Preschooler to Try New Foods – Free Pancakes Today!

A great way to introduce new foods and new cultures into your family meals is to use all the special ‘Days’ or  ‘Months’ on our National Calendar.  A quick google search provides some great examples.  I found out February is National Potato Month, Fabulous Florida Strawberry Month, North Carolina Sweet Potato Month and National Pancake Day. 

Use the occasion to make a little celebration! 

  • Read a book to your child about the featured food.
  • Have your child draw the food, where it comes from or how it is prepared
  • Select  a recipe with your child to dine on the honored food!
  • Discuss what it taste like.
IHOP National Pancake Day, February 23, 2010

To get you started, in celebration of National Pancake Day, IHOP is offering free shortstacks of pancakes today from 7am – 10pm.  They are asking that customers consider a donation to a local children’s hospital through Children’s Miracle Network or other local non-profits.

Bon Appetit!
