What kinds of foods are appropriate for babies and toddlers at different times in their lives?
"be someone's baby" = be a very special possession, goal, or project.
"Hey, don't touch the car. That's my brother's baby, and it is very protective of it."
"sleep like a baby" = sleep deeply and soundly
"Mark worked 16 hours yesterday, so he's going to sleep like a baby tonight."
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Hey. Logan. How about some chocolate peanut butter milkshake?
Hey. Logan. How about some chocolate peanut butter milkshake? Yum Yum Yum.
He shouldn’t eat anything but rice and plain bread. He’s not supposed to eat anything else right now.
Well. . . . Logan. Look. You have chocolate all over your face. Let me clean up your face before your mom comes in here.
No, no, no. We’re fine. Thanks. Logan and I are just talking about politics, the stock market. You know, the economic turmoil in the world. Just light stuff like that.
Do the vocabulary quizzes with the words from the conversation for more practice:
What are some common, traditional foods in your country that people feed to their babies and children?
Use the Internet to discover what foods are given to babies in one or more of these countries. What cultural or environmental factors (e.g., climate, weather, geography, etc.) play a factor in what foods are available?
