    Hello!! We have a 17-year-olds Italian student coming to live with us in Utah, USA and I’m wondering what snacks breakfast and lunch items I should have on hand?

    1. Ciao Lindsey!

      How exciting to host an Italian student! Here are some typical Italian foods that might make your guest feel at home:


      Biscotti: These Italian cookies are often enjoyed with coffee or tea.
      Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato: Many young Italians love their coffee in the morning.
      Yogurt and Fresh Fruit: A simple and healthy option.
      Cereals: in Italy many kids have breakfast with their favorite cereals.


      Pasta Salad: Cold pasta with fresh vegetables and olive oil.
      Panini: Italian sandwiches filled with meats, cheese, and veggies.
      Pizza Margherita: A simple pizza with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil.


      Fresh fruit: Lately the return of fresh fruit instead of snacks is much appreciated
      Olives and crackers: An Italian favorite.
      Nutella: Spread on bread of course.
      Gelato: If you can find it, this Italian ice cream is a treat!

      Of course, everyone’s tastes are unique, so it might be a good idea to ask your student about their preferences once they arrive. Including some local Utah specialties would also provide a fun culinary exchange.

      Enjoy your time together!
