MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - Common school lunches from India, Sweden, Japan, Cuba, France, Kenya and Afghanistan were served, according to The Daily Mail.
"I apologize in advance. It looks like a big piece of poo surrounded by corn," said a boy after he was given a meal of maize and beans, a traditional Kenyan meal.
A girl was not pleased by the Indian school lunch of Sambar: sweet kesari, rice and chaas. Another boy agreed with her assessment, adding that he felt "sorry for the Indians." Each child featured in the clip was revolted by chaas, a yogurt-based drink popular in India.
The French meal also wasn't appealing to the children. They received ratatouille, grilled salmon, rice, brie, a baguette and fruit yogurt, all of which got mixed reviews. Some loved the brie, but others were not fond of the "fancy meal."
"Man, this is delicious!" exclaimed a child after trying the Cuban school lunch: yellow pea soup, taro root, fried plantain, chicken croquette and rice.
Traditional pancakes, hardtack with cheese, lingonberry juice and a carrot salad from Sweden was also met with mixed reviews.
A boy vowed he would never eat the Japanese lunch, which consisted of curried udon noodles, burdock salad, potato croquette and strawberry-flavored milk.
Surprisingly, the high-energy biscuit from Afghanistan -which the kids had difficulty figuring out- won the taste-test.
"I would go to Afghanistan to get that really, really good cube cookie thingamajig," declared one child.
