What’s the best part of a school day? Recess of course! That’s the precious half hour where you get to run around the padang, catch tadpoles from the drain, and stuff your face with fried chicken nuggets (or whatever your pocket money could afford) from the school canteen.
Lunch breaks are glorious, and they’re glorious throughout the world. Let’s take a look at what typical lunches kids are eating in countries across the globe, starting with our beloved:
2. United States of America
6. Burkina Faso
9. Czech Republic
However, it’s important to remember that nutrition plays a key role in your overall health. Good wholesome food fuels your body and helps to fight off diseases.
27. South Korea
31. United Arab Emirates
Of course, these photos are just to give you an idea of what kids are eating in other countries. You probably shouldn’t judge an entire country’s school lunches based on one photo, but it illustrates quite nicely how a country deals with nutrition.
Nutrition plays a huge role in your overall health, and for those who have kids, it’s best to start inculcating healthy habits from a young age. As you should know by now, Malaysian schools don’t always offer the most nutritious lunches. Instead of sending your tiny tots towards greasy mee goreng and deep fried fish balls, why not pack them a yummy and healthy lunch from home?
