What Smells That Smell Food Fitness Family

What s that smell food fitness family is a fun and easy game to help kids between the ages of 3 and 8 learn to recognise different smells. Made by an occupational therapist, it’s designed to make it easier for children to describe what they smell and find the right picture to go with it. It comes with 24 picture cards, 6 smell sticks and instructions.

The Smell of Food is Powerful

According to a 2015 study published in Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences, the smell of food can influence hormones that control appetite, dietary preferences, and how much we eat. This is because the nose’s olfactory nerves signal the brain that it’s time to eat.

Although a strong scent can be appealing, it’s important to try not to eat as soon as you start smelling food. If you do, you’ll end up eating more than you need to.

Luckily, some stinky foods are actually good for you! For example, onions and broccoli have strong aromas because of their organosulfur compounds. These are thought to slow or stop the growth of cancer in the oesophagus, colon, lungs and breast glands. Other stinky foods like cruciferous vegetables have a bad smell, but they’re loaded with glucosinolates which are known to fight cancer and promote healthy digestion.

Developing a healthy lifestyle requires a lot of work, but it’s worth the effort in the long run. Make sure to eat well, exercise regularly, and prioritise self-care. With the right mindset and a positive attitude, you can achieve your health goals!
