      See if they like red or black rice ... it's healthier anyway.

      These days I usually use 1/2 white rice and 1/2 red rice in the rice cooker. I think you are supposed to soak the red rice in advance, but I don't, and it always comes out fine, at least when mixed with white rice.

      Other than that, I second the Cianjur and Pandan recommendations.

      BTW, where are you from originally? Different countries have very different preferences for rice, so that might make a difference in the recommendations that will work for your kids. Me, I think a good bowl of Korean rice is the best in the world. The worst is American converted rice. Everything else is somewhere in between. (Rice in Egypt is really good, but that's because they cook it just right with oil and salt, not because of the rice grains themselves.)

            Organic (Organic land brand) at 32 000 a kilo has no stones. (many varieties)

            I wonder how many people cook it in bottled water, or tap water?

                      Yes, red rice on its own cooked with a minimum of water is fairly dry. However, I just made a batch that came out quite mushy - here's the proportions I used:

                      1/2 cup white rice (sorry, I don't remember the brand - I had transferred it to a plain plastic bag)
                      1/2 cup red rice

                      I rinsed the rice (for that I use tap water) and added 1 and 3/4 cup bottled water, and cooked it in the rice cooker.

                      Pro tip: for company, a mix of red and white rice is a beautiful dish! But, the rices must be cooked separately and the kernels left a bit more firm. Then when you mix them together, it's really pretty. When I have guests who don't live in Indonesia and aren't familiar with all the cool varieties of rice we have here, I like to do that.

                        Yes cooking them together is not cool. It all comes out pink, and objectionable to any Indonesian.

                          Had organic rice in Bali - tastes shit - only hippies would compromise taste in the name of environmentalism.
