Strawberries: from the garden to the plate

Today, we finally harvested from our "garden" our first strawberries for which Kids have been so patiently waiting for! There was so much excitement on Adrian's face when he saw within one week the white strawberry turning pink, and then eventually red 🙂 He could not wait to show it to Julia and, of course, harvest it!

"Yummy delicious!"

What about preparing a snack, independently at two and a half years, using a serrated knife and a fork? (Here is Adrian making his first banana snack  at about one year old.)
