Make Sushi At Home With The Kids!


Leading UK-based Japanese food company YUTAKA, has all the ingredients, without all the additives, to make authentic and healthy sushi at home. Kids love the fact they can get all messy whilst making sushi and the health benefits are incredible. A recent report found the Japanese diet seems to be one of the primary reasons they boast the longest lifespan in the world. 

Nori (seaweed, which is used to wrap the rolls) is abundant in health benefits and is considered an ancient superfood. As well as being really tasty, it provides loads of essential nutrients, is packed with dietary fibre, improves bone and dental health, is high in iron and rich in protein. And that’s just for starters. Wasabi, ginger and soy sauce have all been found to have a variety of benefits too.

The beauty of YUTAKA’s ingredients is that they’re all made in the traditional way, which means they feature a lot less additives than other brands on the market.




We have never tried making sushi before but I've often thought about giving it a go and last weekend I made some with my Granddaughter.

Kids can be fussy with their food and sometimes it can be really difficult to persuade them to try something new, but I've found over the years that if you let them play with their food and get creative they are more likely to want to try it.

Sushi doesn't just have to be raw fish, it is basically just a sweet rice paired with any protein, vegetable or fruit. It is healthy, nutritious and so much fun to make. We made a Chicken Teriyaki to put in our sushi and we absolutely loved it, but you could team your sushi with tinned tuna, or mango pieces, carrot, cucumber....anything really. 








We had a great time making sushi and will do it again soon.
Have you ever made sushi? What do you team yours with?

  2. Sushi is a family favourite here, I've only tied making it once but the kids would love a go. You make it look very manageable here. What a lovely product range.
