My Cooking With Kids Recipe Diary

Jake 5 years 4 months, James 2 years 8 months 


I cooked this recipe with corn. James won’t eat the bacon and won’t try the chestnuts. But he just loves polenta and he loves corn. So, he ate a huge plate of polenta, and the corn. Now, he will eat peas, but won’t eat the soya beans. The thing is, they don’t really taste that different, why does he automatically go for the peas? 

Jake won’t eat chestnuts whole, but really likes them as crispy croutons.
