Wordless Wednesday: SushiBoy!

Wednesday, 16 January 2013

BabyMoo loves Japanese food, but we have only given him the cooked food versions thus far.
On the day he turned two, we decided that he is old enough to have his first taste of sushi and sashimi.


We asked him to take his pick from the conveyor belt... and he excitedly waited for a food item which would strike his fancy. It didn't take him long to pick a salmon mayo sushi.


Which he then proceeded to pick apart and relish with gusto.


Contrary to how this looks - we do FEED the boy on all other occasions!


He finished two plates of salmon sushi and a California maki, and picked out a soft shell crab sushi off the belt. Daddy told him that he has had more than enough (I was also feeding him rice with chawan mushi), and a period of negotiations followed.

The boy relented, but not without showing exactly how he feels about Daddy being his dietician!


Looks like we have a SushiBoy here. I suppose his ability to appreciate good food isn't a mere coincidence.

    1. Did you tell him it's 'raw' / uncooked? Maybe that could have had an impact!

    1. I don't know what is it about roe that entices them? But I like it too, so I guess I won't wonder! Haha!

      Thanks for stopping by, V!

  9. I love the 1st photo of BabyMoo looking at the sushi conveyor belt in amazement. Precious memory and a whole new dining adventure now awaits for the entire Moo family! :) Dana loves sashimi too and when Daddy first fed her, I was quietly praying she will be able to stomach it well. Thankfully it did!

    1. Ya... we normally eat at the counter pre-Baby days, and it's nice to be able to resume that practice now! It's a necessary distraction for them as well, just hoping that he won't be grabbing food off the belt once he's able to reach it!
