When you become an adult your taste buds mature and the foods you eat change to be a little more age appropriate. Here are some of those funny swaps from kiddie food to more adult friendly meals.
Kid – Chicken Nuggets
Adult – Chicken Goujons
A loved childhood favourite, chicken nuggets become slightly unacceptable the older you get which is why chicken goujons were invented! These sound slightly more mature but taste just as good.
Kid – Fish Fingers
Adult – Fish Goujons
Fish fingers were a great after school quick tea, but you don’t have be without the bread delight in adulthood because there fish goujons whether they’re lemon sole, haddock or cod.

Kid – Tattertots
Adult –Potato Croquettes
