It is highly important how one country is behaving the eating habits of the younger generation.

  • Finland. Cream soup of peas, beet salad, carrot salad, local dessert like a pancake with fresh fruits like strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and all the berries you want. The bread is usually black or whole grain. It is meatless lunch, but all the  calories needed are included in this  example of Finland school lunch.

  • France. Here the meat is a main ingredient – a steak, carrots and string bean for garnish, french cheese and fresh fruits like apples and kiwis for dessert. So far we haven’t seen a single chocolate bar as a dessert in the children’s lunch boxes.

  • Brazil. Pork with vegetables, black bean and rice as garnish, fresh green salad, bread and baked bananas for dessert. Again – proteins, carbohydrates and fruit for dessert. We can see that the standard is almost the same in a lot of countries.

  • South Korea. Fish cream soup, tofu and rice, Kimchi and vegetables. Lack of dessert here. But the soup of fish sounds really delicious.

  • Ukraine. Mashed potatoes and sausage, cabbage salad, a pancake-like dessert with some kind of fruit jam. The potatoes and the meat  will keep the children fed and energized during the whole day and the cabbage is a perfect garnish for this heavy meal. No fresh foods included.

  • Spain. Shrimp Sautee and brown rice with vegetables as garnish, gazpacho soup, fresh peppers, bread and orange for a dessert. The soup is absolutely delicious and the orange will give the child the needed vitamins for the day.

  • USA. Fried crispy chicken bites, mashed potatoes, ketchup, peas, cup of fruits and chocolate cookie as a dessert. May I say that this lunch includes the only chocolate-based dessert among all the meals above. We can also see that there is a fried meal, which were never noticed before. I can see now where the problem with the overweight kids starts in the USA – with the school lunch.
