Introducing the kids to foreign cuisine

It’s the age-old frustration, your friend and their son/daughter is over to visit and you’ve just plated up dinner for all the kids. No sooner do you put it on the table than you hear, “Oh darling, I don’t think you’ll like that, will you.” All of a sudden, a child who was perfectly happy to eat an entire plate of food suddenly refuses to even try it.

We want our kids to be open minded about all new experiences, especially food, because experiencing new food is one of life’s great pleasures, and it’s healthy too, so here are three healthy snacks to get your kids started on a lifetime of culinary adventure.

Why Pets Make Bad Gifts

We’ve all seen the adorable videos of children opening up packages filled with puppies, kittens, or other cute and cuddly animals during the holiday season. What seems like a good idea on Christmas morning becomes an animal you have to train, clean up after, and take care of.
