    USA`s idea of "healthy eating" = the less we give them, the less fat they`ll get.

    And the korean green stuff was spinach, and the milk was actually yogurot, dairy based but mostly just a sugary drink.

    no offence but, whats wrong with america? i mean, you dont have to deep fry everything.. this isnt a healthy lunch to give to the children.
    they are making your kids fat and stupid and youre fine with it??
    (yeah, you get stupid by eating a poolunch, you dont get the vitamins and such to give you enough energy to pay attention)

    I allways make my own lunch packets; 4 slices of nice and healthy bread, green apples and a banana.
    thats the norwegian way;)

    beats deepfried mammoth covered in cheese and sauce with fries on the side.

AGAIN. ever think that it isn`t economically feasible to provide better food? by the way America is the world super power so i think that in itself speaks volumes about its people.

    man im boiling inside right now. if we downsized the armed forces maybe we could provide every child in the US an organic gourmet meal, which im in favor of. but the world has a certain dependence on us for military peace keeping, so guess what we have to sacrifice some school lunches so that possibly all of europe feels safer, ungrateful bastard.

    p.s. i like chocolate milk, and the little biscuit with the chicken patty, that`s some good eating right there.

    and i have 2 college degrees continuing school own my own buisness and happily married, so i really don`t think the "crappy" lunch affected me, in fact im drating very grateful that i had a meal for lunch daily cuz if you didn`t know that`s all some kids eat all day. and there is a giant movement to improve school lunches but i think the school systems do a pretty good job with the lousy amounts of money that finally make it down to the actual schools

    Okay, so I`m not exactly the most patriotic person in the world... but dammit, guys. Is it STILL cool to hate America? Isn`t that getting old by now? Does it feel good to make fun of an entire nation knowing that you`r eon the internet adn thus have no real harm coming to you no matter what you say? We have problems, like every country, and we`re TRYING to deal with it, like every country. Of course our health is important to us; of course our people are important to us. There is not a single school that I know of that isn`t in debt and isn`t suffering from a severe budget cut. Our administrators are trying to do all they can with very little. Schools used to have fresh made and fresh cooked foods here. That`s not financially possible anymore. Berating another country is not cool, not fun, and getting seriously, really f*cking old.

    Think about that next time you need a scapegoat.

    oceanbeast: I bow down to you, my american friend!

    Everyone, stop bashing America. Learn your history prior to doing so. Also, personally - I eat very healthy for an American. I am a quasi-veg (only chicken), I only have wheat products, no fried foods and such. A lot of americans are like that. Stop assuming things because it makes you sound ignorant. Also, the US is number NINE in obesity. Please, educate yourselves.

    The last one must be from some school close to where I used to live. Gallikers was the local dairy...deserves to burn to the ground.

    You know, I never thought school lunches were too bad. Now I could probably eat a few, the others would take effort.

    Its my dream to send my kids to a school where they can order medium rare steaks and legs of lamb.

    I`ll throw a comment on too about the American lunches. Its funny to see people saying "No wonder American kids are fat." As others have said, learn your history.

    Not too long ago, kids meals would have been exactly the same. Hell, until the early 1900s a common breakfast, lunch and dinner would have a massive hunk of meat, gravy, and a mound starch. Kids weren`t obese back then. Do you think 1990 rolled around and every school said, hey lets start frying the food and slathering everything in butter. Its always been that way.

    Think for a moment and a more appropriate culprit for childhood obesity is a sedentary lifestyle. Blame the schools for not doing enough to get gets active. Blame the parents for the same. Demand that kids must play dodgeball in elementary school and have them scurry up the vertical ropes.

    Its easy to blame the food. Its a lot harder to blame the lifestyle. Why? Because buying a low fat meal is easy, moving your ass is a bit harder.

    Most look pretty good to be honest. And as for the one who says it`s not economical to provide totally `healthy` lunches, Jamie Oliver proved otherwise in the UK. It can be done against a reasonable price.

    Problem was that the students weren`t all that keen on it.

    And mussels and fries are indeed a typically Belgian dish, we eat the most mussels in the entire world. As long as there`s mayonaise for the (Belgian) french fries.

    Oh I just love the ignorance you ooze oceanbeast.

    America didnt save Europe from the Germans. You didnt jump in to save the day. America was dragged into WWII kicking and screaming after Japan bombed Pearl Harbour. Prior to that, America didnt want to get involved. You didnt save Europe, you joined us!Which is something I`ll be forever gratefull for but if you gonna try to be clever at least be factual instead of dishonering all the Europeans who stood up to fight the nazi`s before America did!

    I won`t discount the tenacity of Europeans before American`s entrance into WWII Maddog; the fact the Britain held out after the Battle of Britain is an amazing feat. But it is hard to argue America`s impact on the war, even before its military involvement.

    FDR knew America would have to be involved in the war at some point. He frequently met with Churchill on this matter an in the summer of 1941 they drafted the Atlantic Charter. I won`t post the details of it. Plus America became the "Warehouse of the Allies" with its Lend-Lease policy, which one British politician claimed was America`s most selfless act. Those supplies alone saved countless British, European, and Russian lives.

    Finally, when America finally did enter the war, Hitler`s two fronts became much harder to manage. He had to turn his attention away from the Eastern front to stem the steady stream of Americans. This undoubtedly helped towards the German debacle at Stalingrad.

    Still, as I said, Britain sacrificed the most out of any of the Western Allies (Russia obviously was the most overall). If Britain didn`t hold up during the Luftwaffe attacks it may not of mattered if America entered the war.

    I think some Americans believe wrongly that Britain was waiting to be saved. Which is not entirely true, they were fighting well on their own. However, with Lend-Lease and America`s eventual involvement, I`m confident that the war ended quite earlier and with fewer Allied casualties then if America remained completely isolated.

    Ah I see there is a discussion on WWII. Well Maddog is right, aside from the fact that we were "dragged kicking and screaming". But sweeping up those Nazi f*cks would have been a no go without Europe. Never would have happened. I will however say that if we decided not to go to war we eventually would have been invaded by Germany and th so called "Third Reich" (as if). Oh and the lunch at my school is way sh*ttier than anything on those lucky f*ckers plates.

    Oh I`m not disputing that we would all possibly speaking German if it wasnt for America in WW2 Dakkar. Thats not my point! I just resent it when some Americans claim "they saved the day" when America couldnt have done it alone anymore than we could. It was joint effort and phrasing it in such a way is disrespectfull to all those who gave their lives for our freedom.

    Anyway..enough off topic conversation! Back to the food..and I`m hungry!

    I knew I was pushing it by continuing on with the WWII conversation, but I can`t help it, I love that time period so.

    And definitely Maddog, it was one of the few times that an allied partnership in war worked out well. It is unfortunate that some people fail to see how important the partnership was.

    Off topic again, whats so pathetic about discussing WWII pirate? Sure it diverged from school lunches, but there is nothing to classify a short discussion on the implications of WWII involvement as pathetic. I would hope that the internet could be used for similar discussion, despite whether it is on topic or not.

    If teh internets is supposed to be serious business, I`ll try my damndest to be as serious as possible, no matter what the scenario.

    Most Americans wanted to help Britain and France before 1941, But FDR took a half-hearted neutral stance. A lot of men joined the military, My grandfather included, Before 1941. My grandfather was in the Army Air Force in Hawaii on Dec. 7th 1941, He seen men burned alive in their airplanes still on the ground. There is no doubt that day motivated every American to produce a force so overwhelming it could not be stopped. And there is no doubt that force won WWII.

    Wow, reading all the comments...we are waaaaay off topic.

    I think what most of the Europeans were saying is the fact of the difference in the foods and how American`s eat vs. other nations. It was an eye opener when I first moved over here is how they eat. For Bfast, you are not eating eggs, sausage, waffles and all that kind of poo but you normally have bread and some lunch meat and maybe a piece of cheese. Lunch is the biggest meal and is usually shared with the family. Kids come home for lunch. That is a way to save money and use that money for a better quality education. And then you have a lighter dinner. I really don`t understand how this post turned into an argument. We are all different and that`s okay!

    But I am much healthier since living in Korea and Europe...more so than when I was younger...but hey...let`s take a breather and move on! :-)

    Crakrjak, I am a firm believer that the attacks on Pearl Harbor never happened. They were an intricate hoax set in motion by Michael Bay so that 50 years later he could direct the film that would lobotomize half of America, leaving us open to a two-pronged assault from Canada and Mexico, who are tired of taking poo from us about illegal immigration and poutine.

    Luckily for us, nobody saw Pearl Harbor, leaving Bay`s plans unfinished...

    I thought the American lunches looked OK, and reasonably healthy... but damn you guys like your chocolate milk!

    Japan`s was the awesomest though - there`s a Japanese kid who goes to my daughter`s playschool and her mum makes her a full-on goddam Bento Box every day. It looks delicious - I pay 20 Euros for that sh*t when I go to a Japanese restaurant!

    Am I going to hell if I steal a 3-year old Japanese kid`s lunch some day soon?

    p.s. I`ll look for it Crakr, but no promises - the upcoming feed is pretty well full up until 6PM PST earliest...

    What was the point of this? Most of these looked like they would be good, but not great, as school lunches should be. Some of the Chinese ones look very similar to what we get on Chinese food day. Sure, a lot of the USA ones looked like cheap crap, but our schools don`t have a whole lot of money for gourmet food (as it appears they have in Korea, which looked really good!) - the only one that didn`t look very good was the one from India, and a commenter explained that wasn`t a school lunch at all, rather, something a truck driver would eat on the go.

    Highschool I went to: Hamburger, french fries, slice of pizza, two cookies, a brownie, cheetos, and a Mountain Dew. :|

    I never bought lunch there (except maybe pizza in ninth grade), but man...
    I think Michigan must have some of the best (worst) cafeterias. I`ve seen everything from slurpee machines to make-your-own sundaes...

    All that aside, the Korean dishes look delicious. :3

    I never really bought lunch at school (except for a few times in elementary school), but let me tell you, some of those were loads better than the quality of food we could get.
    We had milk in a bag! You had to stab it with a straw and hope it didn`t go all over the place.

    Dear god, I hate our school`s food. The only thing tolerable was the grilled cheese, spaghetti, and the tacos. That`s probably only because all they had to do was heat some cheese or boil pasta. All the other days I`d get the catered stuff like Pizza Hut.

    I can safely say, from years of experience, that the Swedish lunch is waaay a-typical. Most schools don`t get that kind of food. That looks positively Edible, unlike the swill they gave us. We got Airplane food the last few months of high school, and it was a huge step up.

    But then, when your school is catered by Sodexho, what can you expect?

    At any of my schools we didn`t have a lunch program. In high school though, we have a cafeteria that sold stuff. You could get a quarter of a roast chicken, fries and coleslaw for 4 bucks : ) They always had delicious food that was cooked by the cooking class. Our chef cooked for the queen when she visited here too.

    Greasy pizza/hamburger, milk, bag of chips, and a random fruit.

    All for the delightful price of $2.25

    American school food is so unhealthy because the crappy stuff is CHEAP. The bureaucracy in the US school system pushes unbelievable amounts of cash into ridiculous projects and nothing into nutrition, health and hiring better teachers (tenure is BS).

    My state tax dollars, for example, are going to build state of the art schools/palaces in gang-infested urban areas where about 30% of kids graduate high school...not because they don`t have the educational resources (they have more taxpayer money than God), but because the kids just don`t care, and their parents don`t either because they didn`t graduate themselves and had kids at 18. Screwed up priorities are the problem.

    And the only reason that American Universities are some of the best in the world (in contrast to US public schools), is because they are mostly privately funded. And the private schools tend to have better food too.

All our school luches are something you basically over-cook from Kid Cuisine but lower quality. D: Mhmmm.... cardboard flavored chicken nuggets.
