Children studied the breakfast of partner countries. Try it !I asked Kindergarten pupils to choosefrom these breakfasts and create theirideal breakfast.A dozen children kindly explained whatthey would eat in the morning...
FRANCE : Bon appétit !The traditional French breakfast ( Le petit-déjeuner )consists of croissants or slices of bread (the famous‘baguette’) with butter or jam. Generally, the French drinkcoffee, tea or milk chocolate. French children preferchocolate cereal.
ITALIE : Buon appetito ! In Italy, breakfast (The colazione) is pretty sweet. The Italians eat cookies (small croissants called "cornetti") or brioche ("ciambella") and drink coffee, hot chocolate or cappuccino (coffee with whipped cream and cocoa powder). ciambella cornetticappuccino
POLOGNE : Smacznego !Polish breakfast (Sniadanie) is rich and varied. It usuallyconsists:• a glass of fruit juice, a cup of weak coffee or tea orcoffee with milk• of various meats (ham, sausage, pâté)• thin slices of cheese• a boiled egg• tomato slices• radishes, tomatoes, cucumbers• honey or jam• rye bread or wheat flour bread.• from "zupa mleczna": milk soup with cereals.
PORTUGAL : Bom apetite !The Portuguese take their breakfast (Pequeno almoço)quite late (around 9:30 or 10am). It consists of bread,toasted or not. Most often, this is rustic bread,spread with jam, quince jelly (marmelada) or toppedwith cheese, ham, cherries or tomatoes. The drink isusually a bowl of milk, coffee, tea or chocolate.

Porridge (oats boiled inmilk) is also served.For the drink : a cup of tea with milk or coffee.Prepare such a breakfast is time consuming.

Indeed, children from kindergarten learnabout their European neighbors, and therefore, have to workespecially on the respective flags of our partners. Theseachievements have been possible with the help of ourintervening in Visual Arts, Gael Bernon, Fridays, by rotation insmall groups; other children stay in the classroom with theteacher.
