“Kids will eat quite post food!” says quite posh cheese
A nation of budding foodies: Today’s children have more adventurous tastes than their parents did
Smoked salmon, goat’s cheese, garlic and salami might have seemed like exotic fare to previous generations but for today’s children they are nothing out of the ordinary.
