  • Everyone complaining about "that's not what they eat in Japan, etc". I feel the need to remind you the game is "where did this dish ORIGINATE from" not what country CURRENTLY eats this school meal". Massive difference.

  • I am Japanese and I am really disgusted with your "Japanese" version. It is nothing like it and someone prepared the food with no idea of what they were doing. We have nutritionists making sure kids are getting balanced food. I am sure American schools don't care about children's diet. You are serving junk food to kids and now you have a major obesity problem.

Did you just take one news paper article about about how bad the food was instead for actually looking into actual research? I’ve literally seen a video complimenting Japanese school lunches.

  • We don't even do school lunches in Australia. Everyone brings something from home, and maybe buys something from the canteen once a week maybe. Most kids will bring a sandwich, a piece of fruit and something snacky (or at elast thats what everyone did when I was at school). Vegemite & cheese was always the popular choice for sandwich fillings with most I knew.
