  1. 日本の給食とは違う…まず食器が変すぎる
    韓国と混同してない?日本はアルミ?金属の食器は使わないよ
    あの食器に違和感感じないんなら、彼女たちは日本育ちの日本人ではないのかな?

  2. its funny because. . . they made US meals look decent lol there was always a main food which looked like . . not the best but not the worst . the veggie is always a mushy mess . and the fruit ? apple sauce or orance slice. SLICE . sometimes an apple . of course milk . out of the carton . not NESQUIK . sometimes you get some tots. if you got a slice of pizzza thats all you got . and the pizza was saucy , cheesy, cardboard . if you got a pasta meal you got like a little roll with it :/

    AMERICAN SCHOOL LUNCHES WERE GOD AWFUL . my middle school was decent though, only because on fridays it'd be pizza day and they'd have a constant flow of dominos pizza and we could buy boxes at a time if we wanted and every friday i did . and they'd offer canned hawaiian punch :3 ugh so damn good . otherwise, i kinda of stopped buying school lunches so i could save for boxes on friday . i'd either steal 'em or i'd roam the cafe and people would feed me . some did for kindness some did to come to me on fridays for a slice of pizza lol i was fine with that .

  3. all the people complaining about the us not caring about their students and stuff
    and here we are in india with no lunch provided by the schools.

  4. When I got packed lunch i brought Japanese food and they would say eww Evan though they were eating soup with a juice on the side with a granola bar with raisins

  5. Of all the school lunches in the world you just have to choose to compare US to Japan lmao Japan literally kicks any other country's school lunch into embarrassment, where I come from we didn't even have school lunches, if your parents don't bring you food or give you money you don't eat until you're home

  6. What schools did the guys go too? When I went to school, we got a lukewarm, cardboard-thin square cheese "pizza" and milk pouches (sometimes with the rare chocolate milk pouch).

  7. I went to New York City public schools. Literally all the food was frozen and heated up. We had lots of canned fruit in syrup. And we they set up a huge tub for kids to pour out their leftover milk.

  8. WTF, Japan be putting salmon in kids lunches, I'm an adult and I can't afford salmon very often lmao. No wonder Japan 10 trillion dolars in debt.

  9. This reminds me of the Japanese TV drama "Chef ~Three Star School Lunch~" where you can see how much effort they put in to make kids' lunches cheap, healthy and tasty

  10. Hey buzzfeed can you guys please blindfold people and give them non organic fruits and foods and organic and see if they can tell the difference because to me there’s no difference in taste

  11. Back in school everyone used to hate on the school lunches. But my parents never gave me money to eat elsewhere (all my classmates went to get junk food or candy for lunch) and I actually enjoyed most cafeteria food. Water was always a free refill and you were allowed to get as much salad and dessert as you wanted. And two portions of lunch if you asked nicely. I didn't appreciate having warm meals for lunch most weekdays enough. Now that I'm at uni and everything is SO expensive…damn. I want my school lunch again.

  12. Hey, people in other countries get A FULL ON MEAL CONTAINING REAL SALMON AND SOUP when America has terrible processed chicken…
    And I mean real food!

  13. you guys cant compare american school lunches with the rest of the world. thats like comparing garbage to food.

    and we literally wont let kids graduate middle schools because somehow, those kids owe a school lunch debt.

    let me say that again, A SCHOOL LUNCH DEBT. WHAT IN THE WHAT WHAT?!?!?!!

  14. La comida de mi escuela es un asco.
    Hay veces que en la comida salen piedritas, moscas y muchas cosas locas.
    Dudo que alguien entienda mi comentario.

  15. Everybody be whining about America’s school lunch btw did you guys even hear what ms Obama did to the lunches our are you guys just oblivious

  16. I don’t understand how they liked school food in America I used to like school food once I moved to America I stopped eating school food y’all got some nasty school food sorry-

  17. i’m watching this and boy does that american school lunch still look better than what is served to me as of right now, i know it’s the district you’re in but 😳

  18. Portuguese here. The more I see stuff about american food the more I realise how bad it is. School lunchs in Portugal are proper meals, with soup, bread, main dish ( proper cooked food) , salad and fruit!

  19. My school district, we get one burger, 8 fries, and a fruit that hopefully isn't bad. Often the fries are stale and the milk is almost certainly mixed with water.

  20. Everytime I watch a buzzfeed video it really makes me think the Americans are living in some dystopia and there is no divide between the wealthy and 'out there' and pure unadulterated poverty.

  21. In my US school we had like cardboard pizza with the fakest cheese and a bucket of oil on top and then mushy beans and half assed sandwiches and I WENT TO THE RICH PEOPLES SCHOOL IN MY CITY LIKE NAH THIS AINT IT

  22. When That black man took that first bite his face was 😧 my life has been unfolded and it was horrible…….until now!
