Children have very particular and limited palates. Sure, some 5-year-olds get down with sushi and kale, but most subsist on a steady diet of carbs, cheese and chicken nuggets, and it seems the royals are no different. According to the Duchess of Cambridge, aka Kate Middleton, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have some very common favorite foods.
“Charlotte loves olives,” Kate told children at the Lavender Primary School, where she was speaking in support of Children’s Mental Health Week, and both Charlotte and George’s love “cheesy pasta” — because obviously. But the youngest royals don’t just like eating. Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust, told reporters that Kate “was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her. They made cheesy pasta the other day. One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in. And they make salads and stuff.”

He added, “Food is important to her and she understands the links between mental health and physical exercise.”
Kate discussed the issue with Ashley McGrath’s year six classroom as the kids were working on a “mood meter” to see how food can affect the body and mind. “It’s interesting how food and energy and how you feel work together,” Kate said. “It’s amazing the connection between physical and mental well-being.”
The Duchess of Cambridge also visited Ms. Monk’s year two classroom, where she took part in an activity in which students shared objects that represent something that makes them feel good. “This is a photograph of my family,” Kate said. “These are my children and this is my husband. And my family makes me feel happy.”
As for Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s favorite foods, we are happy — and relieved — to learn their habits echo that of our kiddos. #CheesyPastaForAll
