Coffee is what gives us boost in the morning and sugary cereal does the same for our kids. We want them to have a filling healthy breakfast that will last them until lunch and we prepare them meals that our parents prepared for us, which most commonly is bland and sweet. But, just as each country has its cuisine, so is the preference for breakfast. So, we pose the question, which country does it right? We might never come to an agreement on that one, but at least we can compare notes and choose what is best suited for our kids. So, see what breakfast looks like in other parts of the world and for more detailed description, make sure to visit the original story in New York Times Magazine.
