This Is What Kids Around The World Eat For Breakfast. I’m In Shock!!

by Giovanna Boldrini
Giovanna was born in Rome, Italy and currently resides in South Salem, New York. In her free time, she likes to cook with her children and grandchildren.

I’m not sure what I was expecting, but this was equal parts shocking and pleasantly surprising. In a recent spread by Malia Wollen with gorgeous photographs by Hannah Whitaker,  The New York Times proved that when it comes to breakfast, America is simply boring.

Here are some kid’s breakfasts in other countries that make our plain old scrambled eggs PALE in comparison…That is, most of the time!

Which of these spreads would you love to take a bite of? Are there any that don’t appeal to you? Let us know in the comments!
