Ever wondered what astronaut food tastes like? - These kids have been taste-testing some real-life space food.

British astronaut Tim Peake has blasted off for his 173 day mission to the International Space Station.

While in space Tim will have to eat specially designed packets of astronaut food, which have all the water taken out of then to help make them last longer.

The astronauts then have to re-hydrate the food again when they want to eat it.

Leah asked these kids to give us their verdict on what it tastes like...
