We also have a rule: you can't say you don't like it until you try it. I made them try sushi. They grumbled and complained; “I’m not hungry” “Yuck!” “You want me to eat what?” then they tried it and, lo and behold, they loved it. Weird, how sometimes your mom knows what she is talking about, hmmm? (I tried the same thing with Mediterranean food but they didn't take to it. Makes me sad, I love hummus.)We gave making our own a whirl and it turned out great!
Nothing wild or crazy; carrots, cucumber, crab, rice and sesame seeds. The kids loved them!
