School lunches - Page 3

post #31 of 100
I use to alway be incredibly jealous of friend who packed. They'd always have good shit and I'd be left trying to trade them things for their junk food and part of their Lunchables

Mainly... Fruit Roll-Ups

And... Fruit By The Foot

That sounds awesome. If we had a weedhead BBQ at school the admins would've accused us of 'gang activity'... the weed wouldn't have been a problem, it would've been the socialization aspect - there was really nothing you could've done back then to avoid being labeled a 'gangster' besides being a white nerd or a white cowboy with a drawl, who were also inevitably the school shooter looking types. It's probably no better nowadays. We had steel bars on the windows, and like I said, we were only allowed to have spoons with our school lunches. Forks and knives were deemed unsafe because of the 'gang activity'

I was jealous of the kids who brought lunch from home too, but then realized that
1) my mother would've packed me horrendous lunches if I'd asked for a packed lunch, so there was no use in trying that - ever had a tempeh sandwich on crappy American whole wheat bread? I have.
2) kids who ate packed lunches early on were always the fat kids who got overfed at home and then weren't satiated by a school lunch serving
3) kids who brought lunches from home were always assholes to everybody as well. I remember some kid in the 6th grade who brought homemade beef jerky and a Coke to school everyday. He was probably putting down a good pound to pound and a half of meat for lunch everyday (yeah he was fat too)... I tried some and the jerky was indeed good though, it was more akin to biltong really. I proposed this idea to my mother and she reminded me that our household was vegetarian. ffffuuuu.gif


We're talking about having a kid, and we talked about it before less seriously in the past - she is already telling me she is gonna make those Keroppi character bento things. I asked her if she was trying to guarantee our future child a daily ass kicking at school. Kid is gonna have to eat school lunch whether they like it or not, and get into the habit of being an asshole as well, maybe I'll get him/her into stealing other kids food or something. Gotta negate the Keroppi character bento effect.
Luckily though, those kids in Japan eat fucking lobster and consomme for school lunch. ffffuuuu.gif There will be some 'back in the day' stories at my house someday and my kid will be an asshole to me...

...usually 6-7 yuan each. No Manchester tart or spotted dick here though.

No man, that food is fucking nauseating. Chinese canteen food is usually cooked with sewage oil, too. Stay away.

Voting tomorrow on whether to give Seoul kids free school lunches or not. The food they give Korean school kids is kinda like MikeDT's lunches but lesss Chinese-y, more Korean-y.

Citation needed.

I've been eating it daily for over two years and I'm still alive, also so have 3,700 healthy and fit students and teachers at the school. Almost zero obesity. unlike the US and UK. In fact the only time I've ever had poisoning from Chinese food, was at a posh restaurant in HK.

I'm lazy, but government stats say that 80% of recycled oil is purchased by school canteens.

This. Chinese cafeteria food is fucking disgusting. No, it won't kill you, but healthy is about the last word I'd use to describe the food (and the students for that matter).

is there anyway to negate the effects of an unhealthy meal? say like drinking large quantities of water afterwards? Dumb thought but I always feel better drinking water after a shitty meal. Food for thought.

When I went to the International School in Stockholm the food was pretty awesome. It was an international school so the fare was pretty versatile.
