The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.
This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

That's something that also buggs me, I took the freaking chore of learning Spanish, French and some German and Italian to understand other people in the world when I visit... they should also learn don't you think? Especially if they're in the U.S.A.
I hate having to 'press 1 for English'
The guide goes on to warn that children might also "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuk'".
Staff are told: "No racist incident should be ignored. When there is a clear racist incident, it is necessary to be specific in condemning the action."

Well there is far too much accommodation for "foreigners" here in the U.S.
Do we really need multi-lingual signage in government buildings?
