Royal Children Are Banned From Eating These Foods
The life of a royal is filled with many rules and protocols about what they can and cannot do. And that goes for even the youngest princes and princesses too.
What a royal baby’s diet consists of
For those wondering what royal babies and toddlers actually eat former royal chef Darren McGrady, who cooked meals for Prince William and Prince Harry when they were kids, gave some insight.
“Their first meals [were] steamed apples and pears from the queen’s Sandringham country retreat,” McGrady told Today. He added that he would hand-purée all the fruits for the little royals to consume.
And when royal tots are ready to eat solid foods it’s all organic, all the time.
The foods royal children are never fed
The Metro reported that the queen has always had 20-plus staffers working in the kitchen and at least two were dedicated to a royal baby’s diet.
“One chef in the palace kitchen would puree chicken, lamb, or beef and another would do the same with cooked vegetables such as peas, carrots, and cauliflower,” the publication noted.
Something that royal nannies, chefs, and everyone else are banned from serving the royal children are packaged foods. McGrady said he’d never saw a baby-related packaged food in the palace in all the years he worked there.
When it comes to royal moms who breastfeed, they have to be careful about what they eat too so the flavor of the baby’s milk isn’t affected. This means nothing spicy, no alcohol, and no garlic ever. Garlic has been banned in royal kitchens for many years because the monarch’s family does not want it making their breath smell bad when they are going to meet others or when they have visitors.
What Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis eat
For dinnertime in the Cambridge household, Prince William’s wife has said that her children like to help her out in the kitchen and they actually eat a lot of the same foods the rest of us eat.
Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust, said Kate told him that Prince George and Princess Charlotte love making homemade cheesy pasta. Kleiner-Mann relayed the conversation he had with the mother-of-three at the Lavender Primary School in London: “She was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her. They made cheesy pasta the other day. One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in. And they make salads and stuff.”
The Duchess of Cambridge previously stated that her kiddos help her make pizza pies too.
“I think they’re some of the best things to make, pizzas at home. It’s such fun, you can choose what you can put on them — all the different toppings,” she said during a visit to London’s King Henry’s Walk Garden with several children in January 2019.
Kate admitted that one of her favorite toppings is bacon telling the group of youngsters, “I quite like that or some other meat. It’s like having pepperoni but it’s not as spicy.”
