Growing up in the Caribbean, coconut water was our main soft drink. I had my first coconut when I was about two years old. We drank them daily. The coconut jelly was our Jell-O. I love coconuts till this day. When I go back to the Caribbean it is the first thing I want to drink. There is always fresh coconut water there.

When you travel with your children, you are raising them in a well-rounded way. Kids today want to see the world. To enhance a child’s adventurous spirit, introduce them to foods from different cultures. Spices and flavors are a big part of foreign cuisine. It is great to make them a part of your children’s meals from a young age.
