In the kitchen, Kate chatted about nutrition with the school’s trainee chefs. Nelson-Neil joked about beets, saying: “I still can’t get them to eat it.” Kate, who previously shared that her kids, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and 1-year-old Prince Louis, have an adventurous taste in vegetables, said, “Mine absolutely love it – it’s one of those things, until you try it, you don’t know.”
Kate arrived as the preschoolers were gathering for their day. She heard about food provision from apprentices at the LEYF Early Years Chef Academy and helped nursery teachers serve breakfast to the children.
Kate poured cereal for the classmates, asking them to say “Stop” when there was enough in their bowls. She then pointed to a plate of orange, banana, grape and papaya, asking the kids, “What do you think of the fruit? What’s your favorite?”
She also met with staff to discuss her 5 Big Questions on the Under Fives survey, which more than 100,000 have taken since last week. The questions include topics such as nature vs. nurture, health and happiness. The results will help guide what is done to help vulnerable children and families for generations to come.
