One way of learning is being in touch with what is happening in other cultures. The Chinese community celebrates their new year, starting today February 19th, and celebrations spread over a week. Among various activities that we recommend to make with your kids, here we show you a recipe of Chinese rice, which is very healthy and easy to make.

This is a rice vegetarian style , so it has no meat. It’s your choice to add chicken or your favorite meat .
