Children around the World Reveal their Breakfast
Globalisation, fortunately, did not change the customs and traits for individual cultures. This is evident also for food and in this case for breakfast throughout continents. Hannah Whitaker and Malia Wolan for The New York Times covered a wonderful article about differences and resemblances between children’s breakfast around the world. Sao Paulo, Chitedze (Malawi), Reykjavik, Amsterdam, Tokyo and Paris were the cities that they went and researched children’s breakfast. And there were some differences indeed. Japan has a completely different culture as opposed from continental Europe for instance. Saki from Tokyo eats salmon and pickled cucumber (a dish she does not love much), something completely different to Nathanael from Paris that gets a continental breakfast with marmalade and cereals.
There are sweet foods, there are sour foods, there are bitter foods, there are salty foods in this article. Europe has different breakfast than Latin America, Japan has different than Africa. But the idea is for the children to be accustomed of the daily routine of the breakfast, whatever it is in the table, so the will have a balanced life. Seven cities, eleven breakfasts, thirteen wonderful children. Enjoy.
