WASHINGTON - What do kids think about national security and foreign policy? WTOP National Security Correspondent J.J. Green set out to find out.

Four District of Columbia elementary schools that have been paired with four Nordic countries through the D.C. Embassy Adoption Program, held what they called "Nordic Food Day" on Oct 26.

River Terrace elementary (Finland), Kenilworth elementary (Denmark), Miner Elementary (Sweden) and the Brookland Education Campus (Norway and Iceland), all in northeast D.C. were visited by their adoptive embassies.

The children and officials had some interesting comments.
