Yes, escargot. Cute little snails. Still in their shells. Wait, here me out.
Kids love interesting objects, nature, and eating with their hands. Escargot, done simply in olive oil and not-too-much garlic, tastes a lot more like chicken than most things people say tastes like chicken. Only juicier. Honest! Get them past the initial hurdle of a strange, new food served in a shell (which for some outgoing kids is a major part of the fun), and they’ll love the taste and smooth texture.
