Dutch children are most spoilt in the world

Although the UNICEF report calls it "happiest", it being a children's foundation and all, I know what they really mean, as would anyone else would who has spent more than 2 seconds in the presence of Dutch children.

It's official. According to a study by the UN children's organisation, UNICEF, Dutch children are the happiest and enjoy the greatest well-being.

The study looked at the children of 21 wealthy western countries and The Netherlands came out on top, ahead of predictable Scandinavian stalwarts Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

At the other end of the spectrum, the unhappiest children in the western world can be found in the US, in 20th place, and the UK, right at the bottom of the pile in 21st place.
