Here are some questions to kick off the activity with your students and spark their curiosity!

What is your favourite vegetable for dipping? Did you know that you can dip fruit as well?

How is yogurt made? 
Answer: Yogurt is made from milk, cream or a mix of both. The mix is heated up and (good!) bacteria is added to it. Then it rests for several hours while the bacteria do their work. During this time, the yogurt gets thick and develops its signature sour flavour. After it has cooled down, it is flavoured or left plain.

Our personal tips

When cutting the cucumber, have students cut the base off. This will make it stable and easier to cut.

Remind students to express their taste respectfully, without saying “Yuck!” or “Gross!” Everyone’s tastes are different, and they change over time!
