How do royals get their kiddos to eat? If you’re Kate Middleton you let your littles help out in the kitchen, cooking some of their fave foods! Listen up because Kate Middleton’s tips might just get your picky eaters into food, too.

The Duchess of Cambridge recently shared what Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s enjoy eating. And their picks probably won’t surprise you. Like plenty of mac ‘n’ cheese-loving kiddos, the royals also enjoy “cheesy pasta”. Along with the ooey, gooey dairy delight, three-year-old Charlotte is also majorly into olives, according to the Duchess.

So what got Middleton to open up about her kids’ meal-time picks? During a recent visit to the Lavender Primary School (as part of Children’s Mental Health Week), the Duchess got the chance to check out one classroom’s “mood meter.” The project helps the students better understand the connection between food, body and mind.

According to Ivy Learning Trust chief executive Matthew Kleiner-Mann, during the event Middleton talked about how she gets her kids involved in the kitchen, “She was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her.” Kleiner-Mann also added, “They made cheesy pasta the other day. One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in. And they make salads and stuff.”

Cheesy pasta that Prince George and Princess Charlotte whip up? Salads and stuff? Maybe the royals are just like us. At least when it comes to keeping kids busy in the kitchen.
