This idea started as an idea to make baby-food versions
of Southern American "soul food" cuisine - okra, hoppin'
john, collards (okay, maybe not chitlins). This I thought
might appeal to black middleclass parents, and help
maintain certain culinary traditions.
It then occurred to me that
the idea could be expanded
to include other ethnic cuisines - South Asian, Mexican,
Middle Eastern, whatever. Besides providing some of the
most nutritious foods from around the world, this
product series could add to kids' awareness of other
cultures before they even get to school.
(PS>> we need a Food:Baby category)
||//we need a Food:Baby category//
||I think baby food ideas should go into other categories. Naming a category "Food:Baby" is just asking for trouble.
||"How do you like children, Mr. Fields?"
WC Fields: "Fricaseed."
||We already have ethnic baby food in the UK (as long as you are white middle class).
||The only time my children ate baby food is when on holiday in France (and with my French it was a bit pot luck), so they had some combinations you might not ordinarily think of. Now they are happy to tuck in to anything us adults eat. Baby food is just there for the convenience of adults so [-].
||I've never heard of hoppin' john before. It sounds like red beans & rice.
They do have sweet potatoes (yams). My kids turned out to be allergic to them as infants, much to my wife's dismay. (I don't much care for them, either, though).
