My toddler can't stand spicy food. I can use black pepper (reasonably), but if something has chilis in it, he can't eat it. He tastes it and within 10-15 seconds he starts screaming and won't eat any of the dish anymore.
So far my solution has been to stop cooking with chili. Or just put very very little, to the point where you can't taste it.
I'm wondering if all youngsters are like that? At what age do kids start to enjoy spicy foods?
I wonder how they deal with it in Asian countries like Thailand which seem pretty fond of chilis.... ?
