I really don't know what kid friendly is.

My daughter ate squid, snails, and octopus when she was quite small. 
She began eating spicy hot Thai food when she was a little more than 
two, of her own insistence. She was always willing to taste new items 
and experiment with unfamiliar foods and cuisines.

The one thing she wouldn't eat was lamb, but i don't care for it 
either, so i never served it. It was served to her by my ex-husband's 
wife, who told her she had to eat what she was served. She ate some, 
then went to the bathroom and threw up. When she came back to the 
table, she was told she had to eat the rest of it.

She didn't like eggplant the way my ex-husband's wife cooked it, 
either. But she was willing to try it again, and discovered that she 
liked eggplant cooked other ways, such as Moroccan zaalouk.

When she was 10 or 11, her school teacher gave her a coupon for a 
meal at McDonald's as a reward. We ate there and afterwards she told 
me she never wanted to eat at McDonald's again. I know for a fact she 
never has, because she became a vegetarian when she was 11 or 12. She 
is now 29 and only about 2 years ago she decided to become a 
pescaterian (basically vegetarian with the addition of fish and 

So i honestly have no idea what kid friendly means. It seems to me it 
really depends on the kid. Perhaps if you suggest some parameters...
