Trying New Foods #kidsinthekitchen

Kids as a general rule tend to be picky. Mine are no different. Sabreena as a 17yo turns her nose up to applesauce and melons but will eat apples and red pepper slices for a snack. Shaun and Shae share a disgust of beans, Brussels sprouts and red meat. I know as they grow up their tastes will change but what I don’t expect is them to be very adventurous right now.

Color me surprised when Shae requested Honey Mustard at a recent grocery store trip. The night before we ate at a local restaurant where she was served honey mustard with her corn dogs. She proceeded to dip her french fries in it and LOVED it. So I bought her honey mustard. She was so excited about it she grabbed it and took it to her room and stored it under her pillow for 2 days till I remembered she took with it.

She’s been putting it on her burgers, hot dogs, fries and even dipped broccoli in it. Shaun discovered sriracha a little while back. While he isn’t drowning his food in it like his father he does add some for flavor and kick.
Trying New Foods and Flavors #kidsinthekitchen
I think sauces and dressings might be the way to go to get my kids to try a wider variety of flavors. Simple adding chopped mango to salsa makes it something they will eat with chips and not just on tacos.

Did you have fun in the “kitchen” this week? Did you try a new food or a new kid friendly restaurant? Did your littlest ones use their snacks to count to 10? We invite you to share your experiences, photos, stories or recipes that include your #kidsinthekitchen.

Come join me and my co-hosts, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together, enjoying it and learning something along the way.
