As Minnie’s taste for adventure flourishes, her tastebuds are currently doing the opposite. Food is approached with mild suspicion, and even a new version of an old favourite (or an old favourite itself) can be rejected out of hand.
In between repeating the mantra, ‘it’s a phase, it’s a phase’, I’m having to pack more carefully for her meals on our days out.
Hopefully the day when I don’t need to leave the house armed with food isn’t far off, but for now I’m not about to experiment when we’re away from home and I risk a cross/starving toddler.
I wish they’d had museums like Eureka! when I was growing up. Back then, the emphasis was on education but I’m not sure anyone expected us to be entertained – with the possible exception of the Natural History Museum (because who isn’t entertained by a huge dinosaur skeleton).
Now the emphasis is far more on the interactive, and educating through enjoyment. Never more so than at a museum aimed specifically at children.
