    What Children Around the World Eat for Lunch at School


    South Korea:

    "The system of planning school meals in South Korea is one of the best in the world. The two biggest sections of the tray are usually for soup and rice. Smaller sections are for salads, seafood, veggies, and fruit. Thin children are given fish oil in a measuring spoon. Popular dishes: kimchi, sesame leaves stuffed with rice and covered with honey sauce, pumpkin potato soup, pancakes with green onions, pepper and octopus, and a cucumber and carrot salad."


    USA:

    "This is how school lunch in Virginia looks. Peaches, corn, chicken, pizza and salad. Dishes are quite different in American schools. Most of the time it’s fast food and convenience food that children really like: nuggets, French fries, burgers. Parents also give children a lunchbox to take to school."


    France:

    "This is a lunch served in a school in the west of France. Fish, spinach, potatoes, cheese, and bread. It’s considered to be the main meal of the day. The lunch break is one to two hours long. Students are also allowed to go home for lunch during this break."
