French School Lunch Menu no.2



































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.

lucky kids! looks like a great menu.
p.s. i think it's kind of funny that even though the french are so chic and the meals on the menu are what we would consider fancy, they still use the comic sans font just as much as people do here in the u.s. :)

Yes! I totally agree with you on that one :)

I love it, everything looks fancier in French, they eat way better than kids in American schools too, wish I was eating in that cafeteria instead of my own!

wait, seriously??? this is some awesome!

i work in food service in our school district and i have to say the fanciest item on the menu is a gordita. i would love to prepare this menu!

This topic really frustrates me, I wish there were something we could do to change things here! Japan, I've read, also is so good about feeding their children well, why not here??? Really!

It is too bad that they don't make school lunches like that here in the states. My children still miss the school lunches from Switzerland. I hear the hospital food in Europe is fantastic too! According to all my friends who have delivered babies over there.

That is fantastic! Did you say they were serving rabbit for lunch?It's a perfect example of how they begin healthy (& varied) eating habits young and it's no wonder they don't have the obesity problem that we have here.

In Finland, where I was lucky enough to go to school, we had very basic but nutritious hot lunches every day. Not only did our classroom teacher eat with us, but we were taught table manners and had to finish what was in front of us. And, we were not allowed to eat too fast either.
We could tell the lunch lady we wanted more of this and less of that so we did have some control of what we ate.
Finland consistently ranks in the top for academic achievement and I think kids having a well fed brain is a big part of that.

I want to be a school kid in France! Seriously, that is some yummy food! And healthy too!

I think the anonymous reader forgot to mention the school meals are free of charge in Finland, it being so obvious to us. And this is all the way up until the end of high school. Even at the university level (which also is free of charge for everyone accepted to study) I paid only around 2 euro for a meal.
I can still imagine the French school cuisine tasting really good, here we concentrate more on providing good school meals for everyone.

My aunt's a teacher and she also seconds the connection between well-fed children and school success (you can't learn as efficiently with an empty stomach) but obviously there are other factors to the good Pisa results as well.

I'm also jealous of my son's kindergarten lunch menu here in germany. And I'm at home eating a sandwich..... They also eat fruits at snacktime.

Hi,
I am a french reader and i have to say this menu is not the regular menu in french schools, most of the time it's awful, and not organic at all!!! Believe me, i'm a teacher and i take my own food because the school food is not good, really not.
Your daughter must be in a very special school.

Jennifer said...

looks delicious, those kids are getting a great start.

@ jomama -- I've lived in France for eight years, and actually the French are MORE into the "comic sans" font than we are!

Thanks for posting the menu. I love it that they offer a different cheese most every day as well.
