This blog will give a first-hand glimpse of snacks from other countries, snacks that are polar opposites to Freaky Fruits or Fantasticos! From Japan to Germany, we will cover a diversity of nibbles worldwide.
Bruschetta is a delicious favourite for Italian children, this snack is perfect with tough bread with an assortment of cheese, ham and vegetables on top of it.
German children have a variety of snacks like other cultures, one in particular is warm, soft pretzels, they love to dip it in mustard. Honey mustard is sometimes proffered because the one can be too spicy at times.
Chinese children chow on dried squid which is often shredded. Whether it’s on the playground or just before dinner, the children enjoy their snack.
Children in this country enjoy a particularly yummy snack called biltong. This is a similar to the beloved beef jerky that is so well-loved by Americans.
Children all over Japan enjoy this snack that is called Iwashi Awnbaj. To us in the west, this snack could appear rather different, kids devour small dried sardines. Originally they are baked with soy sauce and then topped with a dusting of sesame seeds.
All these cultures are quite different to our way of snacking in Britain. Yet we have a lot to learn from them, also making your child’s snack adventure even more cultured. This why we try to get a range of products that are sweet and some that are savoury. Some from different cultures as well, like our curry cashews, pesto breadsticks and edamame beans.
