I'm wanting my kids to eat some fermented foods.  I am a complete novice.  I've heard sourdough and buttermilk pancakes are a way to get kids- who reject saurkraut for instance- to get some of the benefits of fermenting.  Like I said, I am a complete novice.  I have not even researched any books/cookbooks about this method... just going on the brief advice from a very smart health professional.

Thanks in advance, if anyone can help me :)

Well, we buy GT daves kombucha which is flavored with juice, and it tastes a lot like pop to me!  Lol, some of them are pretty sweet.  I've also heard of making peach chutney, although I have not made it, you could look in to it.

U know, I have seen traditional foods folks recommend Bubbies products, and I got some pickles and saurkraut a month ago.  They were great!  But then I realized they were not organic.  I was baffled as to why they would not be organic.  I dont care if a product is certified organic itself, but I want the ingredients to be organic.  For the price especially, I figured it was organic :(

Yes, kombucha is full of healthy beneficial bacteria, and a great choice.

 

The flavored sweetened kefirs might be kid friendly, too.

I wouldnt buy sugar sweetened kefir, and be sure it contains no carageean.  it also wont contain all the beneficial strains because store bought does not use actual kefir grains, just a powdered starter culture.
