We love all foods here in our house and I see that your dh is Jamaican, as is mine. We eat the curry goat, oxtail, chicken foot soup, and jerk chicken of course - all of which are served on special occasions such as birthday gatherings, and holidays, yk? Maybe once a month or sometimes more and sometimes less, depending. Also the side of my family that is very Italian - we eat traditional Italian dishes when with them. And, most of that I try to cook every once in a while. I am going to try hard not to get into habits of cooking different meals for everyone in our family, yk? I have seen how tough that can be once started (for the kids I nanny for - meals are a nightmare)
We eat things like ackee, flitters, plantains, saltfish, fried dumplings all on Christmas for brunch, in particular. Tatum eats all of it and usually likes the meats in particular because of how they are seasoned. He hasn't had them all too often yet because he's only 19 mos, but I hope that he continues to like everything. On a normal basis, we usually just eat over dh's grandmom's house to get a taste of Jamaica - but its normally regular foods like beef, chicken, turkey, rice and peas (beans) and greens or broccolli - but all seasoned the SAME WAY ALL THE TIME.
Neither dh or I cook like that here in our house, but we can get it whenever we want, so hopefully ds will be exposed enough to enjoy all flavors and varieties of foods.
I agree with Paddington, though. It really matters to expose them to healthy foods for the purpose of teaching them nutrition. Just include variety and be positive about all cultures, not just yours and dh's either. Well roundedness is important, I think. And fun!
