Thats crazy. I cant imagine eating the junkfood everyday that the USA kids are getting. Also I do wonder at what kind of school these photo's were taking im pretty sure that the food that was served comes from public schools. I just cant imagine going to a private school and there servind that kind of meals.

I know right!?
Some of the US meals were actually served at private schools, and there's not much difference in the quality of food. The free breakfasts are even worse than the lunches-I know as I've worked in schools!
No value put on food, health, quality of life.
