Did Kim Kardashian West just invent a new food?
While many parents' go-to kid meal might be a crowd pleaser like chicken fingers or mac 'n' cheese, Kim's I-know-they'll-eat-it fare is something quite different.
On Feb. 10 -- before she and husband Kanye West headed to Ellen DeGeneres' star-studded 60th birthday party -- Kim shared a photo via her Instagram story of a very special culinary creation she'd whipped up for her two older kids.
"When your kids LOVE sushi & hotdogs you get creative #HotDogSushi," she wrote atop a snapshot of the bizarre meal, which features cut-up slices of hot dog in the center of rice wrapped in seaweed.
Though North West, 4, and Saint West, 2, are fans of hot dog sushi, only time will tell if their new little sister, 3-week-old Chicago West -- who Kim and husband Kanye West welcomed via surrogate on Jan. 15 -- is also on board.
Kim's unusual but cool kid-food hack comes on the heels of a parenting controversy.
A few days earlier on Feb. 8, she made headlines after posting a topless photo of herself that was taken by none other than her daughter.
The pic was snapped from behind as Kim, clad only in black bike shorts, looks in a mirror. She's holding up her unfastened bra and covering her breasts in the shot while North can be seen in the mirror in front of them.
Some fans supported her while others branded Kim "disgusting," "distasteful" and a terrible role model for having her daughter photograph her in a state of undress and then for celebrating that by posting it on social media.
And that drama came just a week after Kim was criticized by other detractors on social media for calling her temporary braided hairdo "Bo Derek braids" in a Snapchat story, clearly referencing the actress' famous hairdo in the movie "10." Some who went after her felt she was appropriating black culture. (She also posted several NSFW photos of herself wearing the braids on Instagram, including one shot of herself clad in a fur coat and licking her pinkie.)
"Kim Kardashian on snap talking about some Bo Derek braids. Kim they are called CORN ROWS," wrote one irked commenter (via MailOnline). "First of all, f--- you @KimKardashian for wearing cornrows and calling them 'Boderrick braids,'" another user snapped. "Second of [all] f--- you again for crediting the creation of 'boderrick braids' to a white woman who was culturally appropriating cornrows to begin with." Another user called her "a culture vulture."
