Tips for Introducing Your Children to Sushi

If you are a sushi lover, you may want to get your child to start loving sushi too so that you can enjoy it together. Sushi can be a difficult food to introduce to children, so you may need to use some creative strategies on your first trip to a sushi restaurant with your kids. Here are a few tips to help you ease your children into the world of sushi.

California Rolls

Order sushi as a side dish

There is a chance that your kids will not like sushi on the first try, so you might not make a meal of it. Choose a restaurant with more familiar items on the menu such as teriyaki chicken so that you have a secondary option in case your child does not enjoy the sushi. Start out with some sushi rolls as a side dish and move on to a full meal of sushi later on if the introduction goes well.

Start with simple rolls

Sashimi and nigiri may not be the most appealing choices for young kids, but sushi rolls are an approachable way to start with sushi. California rolls, bamboo rolls, and vegetarian kappa maki are some popular choices for young diners because they feature a short list of ingredients that kids have probably encountered before.

Avoid spicy ingredients

While you may love your spicy tuna and dragon rolls, these might have too much of a kick for a child’s palate. Steer clear of these spicier options until your child has been introduced to hot foods at home.

Encourage kids to eat with their hands

One appealing quality of sushi is that it is fun for kids to eat. They will love picking up individual pieces and eating them with their hands instead of chopsticks or a fork—just remember to remind your kids that sushi is an exception to the rule of using utensils to eat.

At House of Genji, you can find a welcoming environment for first-time sushi eaters and longtime sushi lovers alike. To view our lunch and dinner menus, visit our website. You can also find out more by calling (408) 453-8120.
