  2. Agree, it looks delicious and healthy. Although, it does look like too much food for one person. Is it so just for me?

    2. I studied all my life in a public school in Rio de Janeiro and the lunch was very similar to this one. I used to live very near the school and could go home to have lunch, but the food was tasty and very balanced so a used to prefer to eat at school.

  6. I'm pretty sure it's from State University of Campinas (Unicamp), where I study and is, indeed, public.

    1. Agreed. I study in the same university and had quite the same impression as you.

      All in all, either if you're poor or rich, you will probably have a healtier diet than, say, most of the other countries. The picture above cannot be accurate for all the contexts, but portraits quite well the reality of most of Brazilians.

  7. i went to school at USP and this is what I ate EVERY day for less than 2 reais a day. It fills you up and keeps you going all day! In Brazil lunch is the main meal, that is why it is so large. Dinner is normally something lite like yogurt, fruit salad, cereal or a sandwich. backwards from Americans, and oh SO much healthier.

  8. Yes. Elementary school meals are worse than this in Brazil. I went to public school and they served rice with sardines some days and rice with chopped hot dogs on other days. Water or Kool-aid to drink. Sometimes we got porridge (mingau) or sagu (tapioca pearls flavored with gelatin?). Nothing like this "fancy" meal shown on the pic.
