Korean cooking forum topics
I’m 2nd generation Korean American and I have a 7 month old that has started solid food. Unfortunately, we live away from both sets of grandparents and I don’t cook very much, but it’s up to me to make sure my daughter gets exposed to Korean food. After she’s done with purees, any suggestions on what is the best Korean foods/recipes to start her off with? I do have Maangchi’s cookbook and I try the recipes out when I have time.
Thanks in advance!
Hi Anzhalyu! I’m not an expert but I have 3 children, the youngest is 20 months and they all have eaten Korean food from the beginning. I started with more mild foods like many of the side dishes, egg soup, un-spicy tofu when they were just moving from purees, then kimbap and plain rice wrapped in seaweed when they had teeth. They went quickly from that to eating everything we eat and spicy food has never been a problem for any of them. We gave them bowls of water to wash kimchi in at first. But in my culture it is normal for children to eat whatever parents eat fairly early, I’m an American but we still eat like my parents and grandparents did, with the addition of Korean foods as my husband is Korean American. I would suggest that you proceed through the recipes at whatever pace you are most comfortable with. Juk by the way is a wonderful start, and still my children’s favorite! I hope this helps and good luck!
