DIY Kids Sushi Plate: Vegetarian

DIY Kids Sushi Plate: Vegetarian

Sushi doesn’t have to be daunting. All you need is a little rice and seaweed, which we always have on hand. And veggies of your choice. It doesn’t have to be fancy either. Usually, I do like to make real sushi rolls, but sometimes this DIY kids sushi plate will suffice. Not to mention, it’s cute. Not only does cutting food into shapes make all the difference to a kid, it makes eating more fun. In essence, this dish is toddler-approved. Kid-approved. And grown-up approved. Yup, my husband eats this too.

As you can see, today, I went all vegetarian. I just chopped up some avocado, cucumber and seaweed. To make the panda rice, I used a rice mold which you can find here. I also chopped up some mango for dessert. The fruit and veggie cutters you can find here.

Finally, the rest was up to Els. For instance, today, she wrapped the rice and avocado into the seaweed and munched on the cucumbers on the side. Next, she took a bit of her mango before going back to eating her kids sushi all over again.

Occasionally, I add some egg, daikon radish and carrots in there too. Again, whatever you have on hand works!

Simple and Fun Breakfast for Kids and Toddlers

Simple and Fun Breakfast for Kids and Toddlers

I’m totally reminiscing right now of my daughter’s toddler days. Especially since I got sent these cute plates from Oogaa Baby! My first time winning something on Instagram! Aren’t they so cute?? So today, I decided to make my daughter a simple toddler breakfast. Haha. And she loved it.

The perfect over easy egg, toddler/kid breakfast ideas.

These plates are actually perfect for her because she’s not a fan of her food touching (god forbid) the egg touches the pomegranates. Sigh. But I love that they are BPA and PVC free, non-toxic, and you can even bake with it in the oven. I cut her toast into star shapes, gave her a side of juicy pomegranates and a perfectly cooked over easy egg.

She loves dipping her toast into the yolk. Which by the way, is the only way she likes to eat her yolk. To cut out the stars, I used a star shaped fruit and vegetable cutter.

As for the egg, I love to cook our eggs on our little 5 inch cast iron pan. Heat a little olive oil a little under medium. And then carefully crack an egg while pan is hot. Let it cook for about 4 minutes. Then flip with a spatula carefully, and cook for another minute. The perfect over-easy egg. If you want the egg cooked all the way, let it cook for an extra minute or two until fully cooked through.

Oooh, I also won this cute stainless steel flatware from Delight Flatware, which my daughter also loves. And if you want to get the divided silicone plates, you can find them here.

I’m thinking, I’m not just reminiscing, but totally having baby fever all over again. My little girl is growing up too quickly! *crying
