465 Raising Foodies: Trying new things pt 2

This is part two in the series about children trying new foods. I left you with a video of Jackson trying sushi with raw tuna. Did you like it?
We love going to Whole Foods and eating off their hot bar and salad bar. It is an excellent opportunity for both kids to try out new foods without us being committed to an entire dish and risk wasting food. They have a sushi section with a great variety of kinds to try- vegetarian, cooked fish, raw fish, brown rice or traditional white sticky rice. If you try it and do not like it, they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee on their products, which is GREAT!

So this week, we have Jackson trying a (raw) salmon roll. A recent conversation had been about other people we knew who liked sushi, too. He was impressed that one of our "international" friends was a real sushi lover, which you'll observe in this one. Will he like the salmon? Lets see!


  1. I applaud you for nudging your kids to eat "weird" thing. I was well into my adulthood before I was exposed to sushi mi and lox and other great foods.

  2. WOOHOO! Glad to hear you like sushi, Jackson! I prefer all the veggie types and smoked salmon. Very fresh raw tuna on occasion is ok, but I prefer my fishes cooked.
    Happy food adventuring!

  3. Mmm I love sushi! It's my favorite food! He needs some condiments though!
