Sweden School Lunch
Contents: The lunch on the picture is a kind of pasta gratin with chicken and cheese. Not the most nutritious, but one of my favorite school lunches. There's also grated carrot and a simple green salad with cucumber and tomatoes.
Notes: Hi! I'm a 17 year old girl and I just came across this blog. I like the concept and I actually had a photo of one of my school lunches in my phone, so I decided to submit it. I took the photo so that I could prove to my little sister that my plate actually consist of about half vegetables. Not that it always does - sometimes I exaggerate a little bit. Anyway, the Swedish school system requires the schools to provide free lunch for all students, although the rules are different in the gymnasium (years 10-12, about 15-19 year old students) and some private schools require payment beforehand. My school has three dishes every day, one that is vegetarian, a salad bar, crisp bread (knäckebröd) and filmjölk with müsli or cornflakes. To drink, there is water, milk and three kinds of squash.
