Picky Eating and Your 8 Senses

Eating is the most complex activity we do. Eating involves all 8 of our senses and the all the organs of our body to work together!

You read that right – 8 senses! Do you know them all? Let’s go:

The ones you know:

1. Sight

2. Hearing

3. Smell

4. Taste

5. Touch

The ones you might not know (these descriptions are SIMPLIFIED)

6. Vestibular (our sense of movement – how you know you’re moving)

7. Proprioception (our sense of our body in space- how you know you’re lying down)

8. Interoception (your internal sense – how you know you have to pee, or eat)
