461 Raising Foodies: Trying New Things pt1 (series)

Jackson is my adventurous eater. He will try anything and likes most everything. He draws the line at tofu, and he done that after eating it twice. He prides himself in his adventurous food spirit. So we went to Whole Foods one week to grocery shop. (No, its not as expensive as you think it is, either, trust me!) We had not had lunch so we hit the hot bar there. We love eating at Whole Foods! The hot bar and salad bar is a very good way to introduce your kids to new foods without committing yourself to preparing whole dishes. When Hannah tries new things I get just a small spoonful, enough for a couple of bites. If she likes it and wants more, we'll go get more.

So Jackson is a sushi lover. Sushi is something we'll be making at home in the next couple of weeks if things work well. He always gets a California roll, which contains cooked crab meat. This time, he wanted to try RAW fish. so I agreed. This is how good Whole Foods is: if he did not like it, they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and the cashier said he did not like it we would get our money back. That's customer service, my friends!!

So how did he do? Lets see ... we bought a pack with two different kinds of fish. Here is Jackson trying raw tuna:

Stay tuned to find out how raw salmon and pickled ginger worked out!

  1. I cannot believe that with all the times I've been in Whole Foods, I never thought to view the salad bar and & hot bar as an opp to try new foods. Great idea!

  2. Come on back after your next trip and let us know how it went! :)
