    Here's a cool list of school lunches from around the world-

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/what-school-lunches-look-like-in-20-countries-arou

    After looking at the list, one is really struck by how amazingly shitty American school lunches are; not only is the quality crap, but there actually appears to be less on the plate than many of the other countries.

    Comparison:

    Korea-

    France-

    USA-

    Holy fuck! Is that thing on the bottom right supposed to be pizza? Actually, the only kids that look like they have it off worse in terms of lunch than the Americans are the Hondurans, who unfortunately appear to still be on some Oliver Twist shit. Yes, that means I would take the Djibouti rice and beans with curry over that rancid pizza. The Kenyans? Well, I guess it depends how much avocado you're getting but I bet a whole avocado (and maybe a bit of bread) has more nutritional value than the American lunch. That said I'm sure those little Kenyan buggers would love to get their hands on some Fritos or chocolate milk.

    So which lunch from the list would you pick? Say you were picking for your kid, which lunch seems most nutritionally balanced?

    lol, Our lunches look like pure sheet. The pizza slices from my childhood were fake and gross looking, but nothing like what is in that picture.

    The French lunch looks like something you get in a decent restaurant.

    Korea and France. Theres some little asshole french kid getting a platter of mussels. American kid gets a piece of pizza that looks like a dog scarfed it down and shit it back on the plate.

    That's pure BS. My food never looked like that gross plate of food. They probably chose the worst US pic they could.

    Thumb up for Japan, Korea, Singapore and France.

    Whatever schools in the U.S served that garbage should be fucking ashamed. Who the fuck would feed kids that way? God damn that was depressing.
    I actually think the kids from Kenya gets more nutrition than the U.S in those pictures.

    I laughed, yeah, the mussels cinch it for me for the plate I'd pick, they're probably sauteed in white wine. This plate looks like a winner to me, lots of food, quality , and variety-

    A close runner-up would be the Chilean lunch, which also looks balanced and hearty with nice variety-
