Tonight I’ll write a post that I think will be useful to many moms!
How to give an orange to toddlers, who may still have a few teeth for chew or do not know well how to chew?
You should know that me and my husband have been obsessed for 22 months by choking risk: first in the cradle , then with the first food, then with the toys… and with regard to the food issue the theme is serious because Sissi has teeth very late and until few months ago she did not know how to chew very well all foods. And indeed the orange is “insidious” because its cuticles (or worse: the seeds) also bother us.
Then I remembered a long time ago when I used to look cooking shows on Real Time TV with the elegant and chic Csaba dalla Zorza, I was fascinated by how she cutted oranges. She told that, in the cooking school, one of the first things they teach is the ORANGE SUPREME!
All you need is a very good sharp knife (mine is Japanese), orange (organic, preferably), and a nice plate… and a lot of love for your child!
I’ll post the video, found on the web, and photos, which I took tonight at home.
What do you think? Useful, isn’t it?
Come dare l’arancia a bimbi piccoli, che magari hanno ancora pochi denti o non sanno masticare bene? Ok, risponderete: a pezzetti! Ed avete ragione… ma dovete sapere che io ed il mio maritino siamo ossessionati ormai da 22 mesi dal rischio soffocamento: prima in culla, poi con i primi cibi, poi con i giochi… e per quel che riguarda il cibo la questione è seria perchè in realtà Sissi ha messo i denti tardissimo e quindi fino a poco tempo fa non sapeva/poteva masticare molto bene tutti gli alimenti. Ed effettivamente l’arancia è “insidiosa” perchè le sue pellicine (o peggio: i semi) danno fastidio anche a noi grandi.
