We’ve seen adults vote on their fave foodie treats, now here’s how the children’s taste buds fared…
Pasta and pesto has topped a poll of kid’s favourite foods, beating macaroni and cheese. The green dish is even more popular than pizza, according to the survey conducted by the people behind The Children’s Food Festival.
It seems that what adults prefer to feast on is different to what tickles their kids taste buds. The number one choice for adults, bangers and mash, only made it to 5th place and second choice, fish and chips, barely scraped 3% of children’s votes. Foreign dishes were also tasty faves, with Chinese stir-fry and chicken curry making the top 10.
Interestingly, burgers and other types of junk food did not feature on the list.

What’s your toddler’s most-loved meal? Let us know below…
It depends on what a child's used to.Most of mine hate pasta,except spagetti.They all but one hate macaroni cheese.Only one eats pizza.
They love "proper" dinners.Shepherd's pie,roast dinners,bangers and mash,sort of meat,potatoes and gravy dinners.They don't really like chips,beans,nuggets much.Unfortunately they can spot a ready meal a mile off too no matter how much you pay they prefer anything home cooked.
Wish mine did like pasta more,I love pesto
only thing jack has that id class as junk is pizza and fish fingers, but we get the 100% ones by birdseye so they cant be that bad,
Jacks loves a roast, i hate cooking them though and i have to admit roo does a better one but hes always too busy so they dont happen often, went to carvery once jack hated it, only likes daddys roasts!
whats pesto like? Ive never had it, x
My lads love pesto too-hence why we shaved Jc's head-sick of picking spinach,basil and anything green outta there!
My lads love traditional dinners like your brood Jo,but like Laura's beans they love pasta. We're getting into rissotto based meals at the mo with weather being hot,all in 1 pan,quick and easy.
My 2 are fruit addicts,and I'm ashamed to say they don't get that from me-I rarely eat fruit tut tut. I have to spend loads on fresh fruit-it pleases me tho when people ask them if they want a snack,grapes are the fave followed by bananas or melon!
Difficult if you want them to snack in a cafe!!!!
Top fave is spicy one pot(a dish i copy off james martin) or seafood salad!!!
