Traditional British foods could be on the way out after a new survey found youngsters in Maidenhead prefer pizza and burgers when they go on holiday.
The survey, by hotel chain Travelodge, found many children in the town have never tried the likes of Cornish pasties, cockles and even traditional full English breakfasts.
The research found 40 per cent of children in Maidenhead had never had a full English, 62 per cent had never had a Cornish pasty and 91 per cent hadn't tried haggis.
The study also found nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of children in the town thought a cream tea is a cup of tea topped off with whipped cream.
Jellied eels, candy floss and black pudding are also among the foods many children have never tried.
