There’s an amusing video from Cut.com that has been making the rounds this past week. It shows American children sampling the lunches that are typically given to kids in India, France, Cuba, Sweden, Kenya, Japan and Afghanistan. Of course, American kids are not known for their adventurous eating habits. In fact, quite a few books have been written about how to get our kids to eat something besides french fries and chicken nuggets.
Most of the kids in the video are pretty picky. One boy found something "terrible" on just about every plate, but others were slightly more adventurous. Surprisingly, while the lunches from India, France, Cuba, Sweden and Japan all got fairly mixed reviews, the meals from Kenya and Afghanistan both got a thumbs-up from all the kids.
