There are few better – or cheaper – ways to introduce your child to other cultures than through food.
With so many great ethnic restaurants, it’s easy for parents to get children accustomed to foods from different countries from an early age.
However, parents may be unsure of what to order that’s kid-friendly.
In honor of Chinese New Year, which runs February 3-15, over the next few days KidCulture will provide some suggestions to help parents choose food in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese restaurants.
In each of these countries, people celebrate Chinese New Year by sharing good food with their families and friends – and that’s a custom worth adopting.
So stay tuned for some fresh, fun, food ideas to help you introduce your child to other cultures.
Here are some suggestions for children’s books about Chinese New Year. Enjoy!
