Prompted by the "My Chowpup Eats Everything" thread just below ... does anyone know what they feed babies and pre-teens in countries with notably spicy cuisines?
What does a baby in Sichuan province eat? What do little kids in India eat? Do they go for some (or all) of the spice?
I saw a Travel Channel show (just a moment of it in passing) where a street-market vendor (maybe in Africa???) was chewing on a fresh pepper and told the host to try it. The vendor was happily munching away, and the host nearly collapsed in pain - what do kids THERE eat?
So who's an overseas veteran who can speak from personal experience?
