Are you aware that on an average 32 million children in the US eat food from the cafetria? The calories that they consume in these school lunches cover almost half of their daily needed. This shows that cafeteria food is one of the major reasons for obesity in children.
The school lunches are different and unique in each country. Each one is different then the other and at times each one is more fattening then the other.
