Watch It: U.S. Kids Eating Foreign Breakfast Foods

Oh, the things kids say. Seeing and hearing what spills out of those little mouths is one of the most entertaining parts about parenthood. So, it’s no wonder we got a kick out of this new Kitchenbowl video showing American kids taste-testing breakfasts from around the world—from kimchi and rice (Korea) and coffee and bananas (Brazil) to a black egg (Vietnam) and chocolate toast (the Netherlands). See how they react above.

The clip got us thinking about the fascinating New York Times piece we read last year, in which talented photographer Hannah Whitaker and writer Malia Wollen traveled around the world, profiling the breakfast habits of children in Tokyo, Istanbul, Paris, Malawi, Iceland, Amsterdam, and Brazil. Read it here if you haven’t already.

What do you think: Would your kids eat this stuff happily, or beg for the cereal, fruit, and eggs? Also, what do you feed your children for breakfast? Scrambled eggs, avocado, cottage cheese, berries, bread, and orange juice get a lot of mileage in our households.
