Although the meals differ, they all provide the necessary protein and nutrition to keep students active throughout the day.

The post was shared on Instagram by an account named @insidehistory with the caption, “These are some of the school lunches from around the #World.” Since its sharing, the post has received over 36,000 likes, with the number continuing to grow.

However, the post only provides an idea of what students around the world have for lunch, which can vary greatly. The post has also triggered memories of people’s own school days, with some poking fun at the meals.

Mid-day Meal Scheme in India:

In India, the Mid-Day Meal Scheme is a school meal program designed to improve the nutritional status of school-age children nationwide. One of the main objectives of this scheme is to encourage regular school attendance among economically disadvantaged children and help them concentrate on their classroom activities. Through the mid-day meal scheme, students are provided with nutritious food that keeps them active throughout the day and fulfills their nutritional needs.

Take a look at some of the reactions here:

Those peas are way too fresh to be from a US school lunch, let’s think more canned and greenish gray. Sincerely, traumatized American child who got excited over microwave pizza, corn, and milk at 10:45 AM,” an Instagram user commented.

“Every other meal looks healthier and flavorful than the USA’s,” commented the second.

“his should be titled: lunches around the world according to USA?,” said the third user.

“I’m brazilian but wtf 💀 I used to get a bread with butter or worse,” commented another.
