Yum! During Kate Middleton‘s visit to London’s Lavender Primary School for Children’s Mental Health Week on Tuesday, February 5, she revealed one of daughter Princess Charlotte‘s favorite foods and said that her kids like to help her cook in the kitchen when she makes them one particular dish they both love.

“Charlotte loves olives,” Kate told a group of young students about her unexpected favorite snack before adding that Charlotte, 3, and her older brother Prince George like to help her make them “cheesy pasta.” So cute!

During the event, Matthew Kleiner-Mann — chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust — told reporters, “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. Food is important to her and she understands the links between mental health and physical exercise.”

“It’s interesting how food and energy and how you feel work together,” Kate said during her school visit. She even attended a food workshop with students and learned about the consequences of consuming too much sugar. “It’s amazing the connection between physical and mental well-being,” Kate noted.

“She was so engaging and was interested in how Place2Be fitted into the whole school community,” Kleiner-Mann said of Kate’s visit, referring to the Duchess’ charity Place2Be. “She was wonderful with the children and was keen to speak to the parents about the whole helps with their mental well-being too.”

“The Duchess was really interested in how it worked, how Place2Be worked in a school environment and how it helps all children, not just those specifically having dealings with them day to day,” he continued. “She was very interested in our discussion about how food can change moods.”
