Watch kids hilarious reactions to lunches from around the world

It’s nothing new for kids to screw their noses up at what’s put in front of them at meal time – even if it is just meat and three veg. But how would your kids react if you dished up an Indian curry? Or Camembert and bread? These American children don’t hold back as they taste test lunchtime cuisine from around the world.

From the funny folk at Cut, who brought us American Kids Try Breakfasts From Around The World, comes American Kids Try School Lunches From Around The World.

While they may despise what they’re about to eat, their manners remain intact: “I apologise in advance; it looks like a big piece of poo surrounded by corn”. As well as the kids’ hilarious reactions to delving into the midday meal of students from around the world, it’s a great insight into school lunches in other countries. Take a look:

It’s incredible to see just how tiny taste palates react to food that’s obviously a mainstay for children in other countries. One little girl asks, “why would kids eat that? That’s just mean”, while another boy says, “I feel sorry for the Indians”.


But there are positives, with some of the kids preferring their international meal to what they’ve been served up at school. If this has piqued your interest in what kids are eating for lunch, you’ll love our peek into this kid’s amazing lunchbox.
