No better way to understand What Italian Kids Eat than speaking to two local Italian experts… age 4 and 8! My podcast guests today are a charming four-year-old girl, and an equally charming eight-year-old boy both born and raised in Rome, Italy. They give us the lowdown on what kids eat from breakfast to lunch to dinner, snack time (merenda), and what they eat when out at a restaurant. Riccardo and Sofia tell us all about what can't be missed at any and every Italian lunch, plus the special things kids eat when they're out at a restaurant. No Kids Menu here in Italy: kids order from an adult menu and mostly adult dishes, including Riccardo's current favorite, spaghetti with clam sauce. Do kids drink wine with their meal? No, but a few sips here and there are made available to all kids and because it's not forbidden most kids taste it and decide it's not for them and choose either water or a special out-to-dinner treat that's a kids favorite worldwide – Coca-Cola. Listen in for a fun and thoroughly charming episode that's also full of fascinating cultural information on Italian culinary tradition for children.
