Our children are demanding a more varied diet of international cuisine on their dinner plates than ever before, according to new research.

The research, commissioned by Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, which has hundreds of restaurants serving cuisine from around the world, looked into family eating habits. The research was based on 1,300 parents and 1,000 children under the age of 16 sharing their mealtime favourites.

The study uncovered that three quarters of parents agree that family mealtimes provide a better opportunity to catch up and reconnect than special occasions such as Easter or Christmas, with a huge 90% of parents agreeing that regular catch ups with the family over a meal are their favourite time in the day.

It turns out that that more than half of parents picked good old-fashioned British fare as their child's favourite type of cuisine, yet only 37% of the kids themselves said this was the case, with almost 30% saying they prefer Italian and 12% Asian cuisine.

So the pressure is on for us to create more adventure and magic in our family mealtimes. No need to panic as we have a great variety of international recipes for you try at home!
