Q. What are school lunches like?


A.

From Monday through Friday, schoolchildren attending elementary and middle schools have lunches prepared for them in the classroom. The students take turns serving portions. The meals are healthy and well-balanced, containing all the nutrients and calories required for the healthy growth of youngsters.


The lunches are full of variety, featuring a whole range of meats, fishes, vegetables, and sea plants. A typical meal consists of stew or curry, boiled vegetables, a sandwich, and salad.


Milk is served with each meal. Usually, there is also dessert, such as gelatin, ice cream, and fruit.
