Rosalie Durand, 10, Nice, France, 2017: since her parents split up, Rosalie has lived part-time with her mum and part-time with her dad, which allows her to see both the Mediterranean Sea and the French Alps. She has a healthy diet, which includes lots of fresh fish, such as sardines, thanks in part to her father, a restaurateur, who has taught her to make crepes, salads and lentils with sausage, her favourite dish.
