Listen to foodie sounds as you cook + enjoy eating your meal together, making lots of yummmy sounds!

Did you know...

Letting your little one hear lots of different sounds is incredibly important to help them develop. We don’t often think that we eat with our ears, but some foodie sounds create excitement for the yummy food we’re about to eat.

From the bubble of veggies cooking, to the crunch of the first mouthful of toast, our sense of hearing really adds to the eating experience.

How to create foodie sounds

Listen to foodie sounds as you cook + enjoy eating your meal together, making lots of yummmy sounds!

Here's some top tips + fun games you can play at home - use these foods in your sensory play + encourage your baby to mimic the different sounds they hear:

More sensory sound activities

  • Why not play the drums with veggie sticks!
  • Have your baby in the kitchen whilst you're cooking + let them listen to all the yummy noises, like
    • bubbling of your veggies boiling
    • sizzle of onions frying
    • chopping of carrot sticks

Pssst! Always supervise your little one + avoid brittle, flaky or crumbly foods as they're a choking hazard. Raw veg, like carrot or celery is not suitable for young babies as it is too hard to eat.
