Belgian Beer for Children: My Sunday Photo

During the May school break we headed south to our neighbours in Belgium. Whilst there we visited a local beer brewery and tasted a little of the homemade fayre - both liquid and something a little more substantial.

Whilst browsing for something for our three children my husband and I had to do a little double take when we saw this:

For those non-Dutch speakers amongst you I am talking about the kinderbiertje on the menu - literally beer for children. It's a brown beer with caramel - with low alcohol of around 1%. Just in case anyone was worried about serving beer to their children.......... I'm guessing this is a Belgian thing?

Needless to say our children had chocomel.........



  1. That's pretty amazing, who'd really think it could be a good idea to give kids alcohol?! #mysundayphoto

  2. Haha! They have Kinder Punsche here in the winter markets. Also has a 1% alcohol content, and is recommended not only for children, but for pregnant women too! :D

    1. Ahhh like those days when they said drinking Guinness every day whilst pregnant was good for you............

  3. That's pretty unique, never get that it this country
