To make our lousy school lunches seem more palatable, the story is showing worse lunches some other countries kids have to eat.

From my son's school, here are a few of the meals served in May. He hates school lunches.

5/9   Yogurt Boat with Corn Muffin & Sunflower Seeds

5/14  Bagel w/Butter & Jam  or Turkey Deli on Flatbread

5/15  Cheesy Sticks

They forgot Japanese Bento. Probably the best 'school lunch' you can get (brought from home of course).

You do see where my obsession with good bread comes from.  :laugh:

The Palestinian lunch is pretty damned common throughout the Middle East.

I would like to point out the obvious here.

Kids are not becoming obese because of school lunches.  They never have.

Kids are obese because of things they eat outside of school, and the fact that they are completely sedentary.

We could eat a small portion of fried food, or mac and cheese and stay skinny because we went out to recess after lunch and ran it off.  Then we came home, went outside and rode our bikes, jumped rope, played football or baseball, or just ran around.

Starving kids at school, giving them 1% milk, is most likely going to have the end result of making kids eat more, and less healthy.

Of course, to the left, if it sounds good and Michelle seems like her intentions are honorable, no one will care if it has the opposite result.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

How about the "cheesy sticks?"  When we were kids we always had some kind of fruit or veggie with our lunches, and that was at least another decade before you!  ^-^

Yep, andy.

Those kids in the lower photo won't likely stay as thin as they are now.

I have fond memories of the school lunches served back in the 1960s & 70s.   Before the National Government ruined everything.   

Here are just a few lunches I remember:

Spaghetti with meat sauce with a buttery slice of French bread
Mash potatoes with turkey or beef gravy - with lots of meat in the gravy
Grilled cheese and cream of tomato soup
Baked chicken  with mash potatoes and chicken gravy
Sloppy Joes &  tator tots
Hamburger & fries
Square pizza  - which was actually pretty good
Chili which was always served with a huge cinnamon roll.
Tuna Melts
-   And they always came with a vegi and fruit or desert. And milk for a nickel more. I loved all the lunches except for mac & cheese which I never cared for, even today.

I rember the looks on my schoolmates' faces when they brought out their PB & JU, or Ham and cheese, and I brought out the eggplant parmigiano, veal and peppers or stuffed pepper hero!  Good time. GREAT eats...
