Remember last year's school lunch menu? Well, this year's menu looks just as crazy good. I tell my daughter every day how much I wish I could eat lunch with her. She eats waaaay better than we do! Seriously, Rabbit with Mustard Sauce, Zucchini Flan and Chocolate Mousse? And Roasted Duck with Haricots Verts and Chocolate Cake? And all for 2€ ?
Oh, and it doesn't stop there...after school they give the children a little snack and it's typically something like a fresh peach, a banana or a little baguette with dark chocolate. I love that someone in this world understands the importance of feeding children well. My daughter tells me how the server makes all the kids eat their vegetables too. Talk about a different situation than what you'd find in the US! There are some aspects of the culture here I'd pass on but this is one thing I admire so much about the French--they get that eating well promotes a better overall educational experience.
