You probably eat the same thing or the same couple of things for breakfast every morning—that is, if you eat breakfast at all. If you do, it might be a rushed affair, especially if you’re not a morning person. Like it or not (I don’t), breakfast is good for you. These kids know what’s up.
See what kids eat for their morning meal all around the world. From stir-fried peppers to sour milk, there are all kinds of surprising items on this list. If you’re in a breakfast slump and tire of eating the same soggy cereal or sugary donut in the mornings, you can use their meals as inspiration. Just be aware that some of these items might be an acquired taste.

I don’t know about you, but some of these actually make me appreciate breakfast. Now I need to rethink what I’m going to eat tomorrow morning…
