Brazil – the largest country in South America – is the next stop on our food tour of the world. Home of the world’s largest rain forest, Brazil is known for soccer, long beaches and the Amazon River. Kids of Brazil also love to eat! While the national dish of Brazil is “feijoada” (a dish of pork, rice, beans and onions), one of their popular specialties is tapioca pudding.
Children all over Brazil help their parents make this simple dessert – and often times find a way to have it as after school snack, too. Take a trip to Brazil by visiting the jell-o/pudding aisle of the grocery store. Kids can certainly help with the easy recipe, so spend some time with your child making dessert for dinner tonight. Ask them what it might be like to live in Brazil- and to see piranhas in the Amazon!
