I’m no expert (in ANYTHING) but when I was pregnant, I ate the hottest foods imaginable. I also had insanely intense acid reflux, but giving up my love for all things spicy just wasn’t gonna work for me. Luna is 3 now and she can handle things spicier than most kids, especially if it’s a soup broth or something, but she much prefers things on the salty and sour side. Pickles, olives, my mom’s Thai sour milk (that sounds horrible). Miles just got into solids and is a little more on the sensitive side when it comes to traveling to flavortown. I don’t think I’ll ever pressure them into eating spicy foods, although it would make me a little more than proud if they had a passion for it one day as big as mine. We don’t actively avoid them, though. I believe in the one bite rule for most things: just try a little, be open minded, and if you don’t like it, all good!
