School Lunches from Around the World Make American Students Want to Study Abroad

Everyone from teachers to medical professionals say that kids who eat a nutritious school lunch not only have less trouble focusing in class, they also carry over their good eating habits into adulthood. So how healthy are America’s school lunches, compared to the international competition? According to sweetgreen, the United States falls somewhat short.

9. USA
The National School Lunch Program is designed to provide kids with low-cost, nutritionally balanced meals based on guidelines from the USDA. Of course, the prohibitive size of the United States means that when the lunches finally end up in front of the kids, they look like this.

8. Spain
Spanish school children are actually given shrimp as part of the state’s school lunch program. Something that would never make an appearance in an American lunch, followed by a side dish of peppers, gazpacho, and a seeded roll. There’s also half an orange for dessert.

7. Ukraine
Even in Ukraine, the kids are given a lunch that looks far fresher than the American example. In addition to some sausage and mashers, kids are given a cup of borscht, pickled cabbage, and a sweet pancake for dessert. It’s still better-looking than USA’s chicken nuggets.

6. Greece
Greek school kids eat a meal of fresh baked chicken on a bed of orzo. On the side, they’re given a cucumber and tomato salad, stuffed grape leaves, a yogurt with pomegranate seeds. For dessert, they’re given two cute, little oranges with the leaves still attached.

5. South Korea
South Korean school kids are able to enjoy a meal that’s heavily based on rice and cabbage. In addition, the children are given fresh peppers and steamed broccoli as well as a steaming cup of fish soup and green onions.

4. Brazil
Brazilian students might just have the most delicious school lunches on the planet. A main course of rice and black beans is coupled with pork, peppers and coriander. On the side, they’re given green salad and a seeded roll with baked plantains for dessert.

3. France
In France, the kids are given a little feast that would run good money at a nice restaurant in the States. In addition to a slice of rare steak, seasoned carrots, and green beans, French school children are actually given a nice chunk of brie for lunch. That decadent flavor is complemented with fresh fruit for dessert.

2. Finland
The schools in Finland skew vegetable heavy. The children are looking at a delicious pea soup, a crusty roll, seasoned carrots, and beetroot salad. Once they’ve plowed through the beets, they can turn their attention to a sweet pancake and berries

1. Italy
It’d almost be a national embarrassment if Italian school children weren’t fed a mouth-watering meal, right? Pasta with fish, two kinds of salad including one beautiful-looking caprese, a bread roll, and fresh grapes for desert.
Delizcioso.

    different schools in different countriesare ofc not the same and are served lunches differently. and whats with the title of this video? like americans dont care about school lunches like that, and not all of them are the same. if u dont live in america then u wouldnt possibly know unless u searched some crap up on the internet or something. like dont just look up pictures of US school lunches and just assume thats what ALL americans eat. and this video clearly has some misinfo about some countries/state's school lunch. and also. nobody cares.

    The U.S is one of the richest countries but somehow they still manage to give peasant lunches at school. Suspicious.

    Everyday atleast one different item should be there and a balanced tiffin from home must also be taken including protein shakes and cold shakes during summers. You did not include drinks and so I am presuming its not given may be.

    Americans pay way to much in school taxes for American children to eat insufficient meals at school. America should be ashamed. Sometimes school meals is the only food the these youngsters get.
