If we have a child that likes rice, the next step could be ‘fried rice’. I’m not thinking the full Chinese treatment with all the additions, I’m suggesting the simplest version. Frying the rice gently in some oil or butter.
Any change we make to our child’s food is step forwards and opens the door for more steps. Changes in texture can mean a totally new food for a super selective eater.
How can we market this?
Depending on the age of our child we can talk about fried rice and where it comes from and where it’s traditionally found. We can try eating with chopsticks – always fun -they have child-friendly ones with ends that are attached.
If you have a more adventurous eater then soy, egg or some veg or protein can be added.
