Baby's First Tastes Thrill-o-meter !

I thought you might like some funny baby pictures to start your weekend with a smile ! I used to love taking photos like this when the Madhouse kids were small. The first taste of ice cream is always a good one - they pull the funniest faces but still keep on coming back for more ! My favourite here is the middle one on the third line - I'd love to know what he'sjust eaten !

If you're wondering what it's all about, baby and toddler food experts Ella’s Kitchen, in partnership with Thrill Laboratory, have unveiled the world’s first ‘baby thrill-o-meter’ to capture and measure the thrill experienced by little ones when they try new and different foods. 

They explain : "When babies become excited in response to a food, or the anticipation of a food, their bodies and minds get ready for action. Their hearts beat faster, their eyes open wide, and their breathing quickens. One physiological effect of excitement and sensorial engagement that can’t be seen by parents is the micro-fluctuations in sweat levels, which the thrill-o-meter closely monitored through Galvanic Skin Response. A rise in Galvanic Skin Response, together with positive facial analysis from parents, expressed just how excited the baby was when tasting the food."

The results from the thrill-o-meter revealed a list of the top 10 most exciting tastes for babies:

1. Mango
2. Cinnamon
3. Lemon
4. Coconut
5. Banana
6. Papaya
7. Red pepper
8. Apricot
9. Sweet potato
10. Carrot

You can see exactly how the babies reacted – and just how excited they were – when they tried different fruits, vegetables and spices in an exclusive NEW video from Ella’s Kitchen too:
