I don’t know how old Japanese kids start eating sashimi. I was 9 when I did. And on Mother’s Day, my daughter, who will be 4 in August, had her first taste of sashimi…salmon first, then tuna. When asked how she liked it, she said, “Yum! I like it!” She doesn’t like wasabi…yet. One small step at a time, ei? Being a self-confessed sushi junkie, I have to say I’m very pleased. Hahaha!
It was hubby who ordered the sushi platter for himself but shared it with Abby when the little girl wouldn’t stop asking to taste it.
For now, Abby uses kiddie chopsticks, which are simply chopsticks held together by a clip. Hopefully, she’ll soon learn how to use it without the clip. :) I was 8 or 9 when I learned to use the chopsticks..the real slippery ones and not the wooden kind used in restaurants. I practiced a lot on instant noodles. Hee hee. :)
Do you like sushi? When did you first taste sushi? And when did you learn to use the chopsticks? Just wondering. :)
