In Fiji, you pretty much can't buy baby food! Everything is made fresh! Which sounds wonderful! BUT, it's swimming in sugar..
We were wondering why Gypsy liked it so much, then we walked into the kitchen one day...
Luckily she also loves her fruit!! She ate alot of fruit after that fateful sugar filled day...
As much as the restaurant owner will tell you there is no chilli in the dahl or curry, ALWAYS try it first as we found that only 1 of them was actually chilli-free.
Fruit is super cheap and fresh and easy to find.
BUT, Srilankans LOVE babies and will go out of their way to make food for you! Just say those magic words "for the baby" and they will run out back to whip something super fresh, super healthy and super chilli-free up for you!
Winning foods we have found so far include: dahl, paratha, snacks (deep fried lentils), hoppers, string hoppers, ada, kothu, fried rice, and of course, the beloved papadum!
You can also buy bananas, papaya and, most importantly, yoghurt at about 15metre intervals along every street in the country!
