This story from TIME magazine I found astonishing and adorable:

It sure made me nostalgic, not!

I find it interesting to read the menu as I wait outside the school for my evening classes.

Sometimes I think the kids here eat better than I do!!!

I have never had the sort of school lunches that they do here (and in some other countries). Australia didn't have that sort of cafeteria.

We had a tuckshop that you put an order in before classes for your sandwiches and they were delivered to the classroom just before the lunch bell rang. Some "lucky" children were allowed to order meat pies or sausage rolls. The school thought it was very progressive when it brought in salads.....

Extras were fruit (generally an apple or banana) and fruit juices. No chocolate, chips, etc and definately no yogurts!

Hey, it was the 70's! You were lucky if you had more than a vegemite, jam or cheese sandwich. Vegemite AND cheese on the one sandwich was lashing out in style!
