Vegetable sushi is available at most grocery stores now, but you can personalize it with your child’s favorite veggies at home (and it’s also a lot less expensive than store-bought versions). Making hand rolls is especially easy. Another fun option is inari, which is simply a soybean wrapper stuffed with rice. For those mornings when assembling and rolling sushi is not happening, have the makings of a deconstructed sushi bowl on hand. The night before: prepare some rice and toss with a minimal amount of sesame oil or brown rice vinegar to keep rice from sticking and clumping together. Cube some seasoned tofu, and thinly slice carrots, cucumbers, red peppers, and any other veggies your child will chomp on. Throw it all in a container and drizzle some teriyaki sauce on top along with strips of nori.
