Millions of modern children have already had their first taste of olives, houmous and quinoa before the age of five, a study has found.

Today's youngsters are having more exotic and adventurous food from an early age than in previous generations, with many also having their first taste of curry, aubergine and even pak choi before their 5th birthday. How many of the below foods have your children tried before their fifth birthdays?

Kiddylicious nutritionist Charlotte Stirling-Reed, which commissioned the research to mark the launch of My First Wafers, said: "Parents today have more choice than ever when it comes to foods they can feed their babies, meaning youngsters are eating far more exotic and adventurous foods from an early age.

"Olives, quinoa and couscous are foods which weren't readily available in previous generations but are now staple items in a lot of households, with this reflected in the diets of young children.

"Moving babies onto solid food is an important milestone and the foods offered at this stage set the tone for future food preferences and patterns of eating.
