Canteen report card
Lunches provided in schools around the world reflect the country’s culture and its external influences.
For example, it seems that North Americans have a fondness for disposable cups and plates.
Moreover, it’s not surprising that in Asian countries, rice is included in all the trays and many countries don’t have dairy products in their menu.
We asked our Director of Nutrition, Danielle Lamontagne, who worked for over 20 years at the Montreal School Board, to assess 16 school lunches from around the world.

Fried fish, dried seaweed, tomatoes, miso soup with potatoes, rice in a metal container, served with milk.
- Surprising to find milk,
- No dessert
- Presence of fried food,
- White rice is obviously included
