My Cooking With Kids Recipe Diary

Jake 5 years 5 months, James 2 years 9 months


Between these pork chops and the belly pork Jake and James have eaten an enormous amount of pork lately and it has been a great period of transition. James wouldn’t eat any meat at all at the turn of the year and now he’ll gnaw on the bone and eat the finely sliced pork, but nothing in-between.  I suggest introducing the pork to kids in thin slices, then giving them slightly thicker slices as they learn to cope with it. They’ll find it hard to chew so go gradually but do get them into the habit of chewing.
