Hello & Welcome to Kodomo Sushi!
Come and join me in the journey of broadening the pallets and tastes of our children through sushi. I think it’s fun to open children up to culturally different types of foods, helping even the pickiest of eaters try something new by means of making it look appealing and fun. And what’s more fun than eating little bites with chopsticks?
Sushi, at it’s true definition means ‘sticky rice’. To be sushi there is no need for raw fish, or for any type of meat. A lot of times in our house I use just vegetables and cream cheese. However, even though to technically be called sushi you must use rice, you will see some posts for Kodomo Sushi that in fact won’t have rice in them at all. This is for the purpose of keeping this way of introducing food fresh and new. Remember, it’s all about helping our kids broaden their minds to food, trying new things, eating healthy, and actually enjoying what they eat.
Kodomo, the Japanese word for ‘kid’ or ‘child’, means that I am gearing these recipes towards kids and their likes, enticing them to try new things and keeping meals fun and fresh. These recipes are made with children of all ages in mind. Depending on how big or small your make your sushi, you can start feeding these little meals to your 2 or 3 year old. There are so many fun ways to make sushi, creative sushi, and mock sushi that I am sure even your tween and teen will enjoy the recipes I publish for you.
I truly hope that you enjoy the content that I provide here, and that you and your child[ren] will make sushi and regular dish in your home. If you have questions, comments, or a submission of a Kodomo Sushi dish you have made that you would like to be share, please email me at email@example.com.
Shiawase wa taberu!
