What differentiates the concept of “kid food” versus “adult food”? I started to ask myself this question the other day, as I pondered whether the meals I’m making are too much for a young person’s palate. Can our kids love gazpacho and salad? Is it culture that makes some food seem yucky, or is it just part of the child physiological development?
I found an article that talks just about this idea:
According to this article, the idea of “kid food” is something we socialize children into believing by our treatment of the subject.
I think we have a very important job here in developing our kids’ idea of how food should look and taste. Together we can help them grow into healthier eating patterns as adults.
