Today’s kids have eaten squid and mussels by age six



Modern British kids have eaten squid and mussels by the age of six and oysters by the age of seven, according to a new poll.

The research by Giraffe World Kitchen, which surveyed 1,500 UK parents, has revealed a list of foods school children eat today, which their parents had never even heard of when they were young.

It revealed a generational shift in what today’s children will eat, with the average youngster trying things their parents didn’t try until they were well into adulthood – such as chillies, squid, Pad Thai and edamame beans.

According to the poll, kids have eaten curry by the age of five and sushi by the time they are seven. In contrast, their parents were 15 and 22, respectively. Hummus, bao buns from China, Japanese katsu curry and Mexican quesadillas are also among the list of world foods parents never tried as a youngster, but that their children regularly enjoy.

The study also found 41% of parents said their children will happily try foods that they wouldn’t be overly keen to try themselves.

A spokesperson for Giraffe World Kitchen said: “Kids today have such a great choice of world foods at their fingertips, it’s not a huge surprise to hear that they are so much more adventurous than their parents ever were at the same age.”
