K Is for Kumquats and Kiwis

I enjoy exposing my kids to new foods. We have had kiwi to eat before, but not in a long time. My children did not like kiwi when they were little so we rarely purchased it. I thought it was time to give it another try. To my delight, Anne thought the kiwi was good and ate one whole fruit by herself. Dean was still not a fan of the taste but thought it was a very beautiful fruit. He thought eating a slice occasionally might be okay.

After the kiwi, we decided to get really adventurous and try kumquat fruit. We watched several videos on how to eat it. Basically, you wash the tiny fruit, squeeze it to release the sweetness in the skin and then eat the whole rind and all. This fruit has a bite or zest to it. It was like eating an orange flavored lemon. I will let Dean's facial expression relay how they felt about this fruit. I don't think we will be running out to buy it again anytime soon!

I love watching my kids explore the world. It is fun when we are able to do so without even leaving home!

  1. We love Kiwi. I'll have to look for some Kumquat to try -- my youngest loves trying anything and everything new.

  2. I love trying new foods. I have always called Keilee "kiwi" so we eat it a lot. :)

  3. We have never had kumquat before either! I should make my kids try new foods more often. I'm not am adventurous eater, and it rubs off on them!

  4. I've never had kumquats but I definitely am with Dean on the kiwi. :-)
