Kids Try 100 Years of School Lunches

КОМЕНТАРІ

  • The food I eat currently is super processed and unhealthy, and some of the food the kids ate actually looked pretty good. The lunch ladies say to get a fruit or vegetable but they might as well not bother since the lunch is usually unhealthy or tastes bad.

  • What happened between 1950s lunch and 1960s lunch...

  • "tHiS wOulD sTiLl bE At LiKe 20 DoLlArS iN 1920"

  • When they had the 80s lunch and was complaining about the sugar I knew then us millennial parents have ruined our children with healthy crap food 🤣🤣

  • So... They use to think pickles were junk food. Does that mean In the future junk food will be good for us? ;-; **Gets in Time traveler**

  • 70"s were awesome for lunches

  • Feel like I missed out.

  • How do you know what dog food tastes like🤔

  • .

  • “ the soup smells like steam “ lmfao

  • The 2010's lunch is exactly what I would have for lunch and I just graduated in June (2018)

  • "The soup smells like steam" lol

  • I’ve eaten school food when it was 2010 that isn’t 2010 school food

  • 2010's - Salad, Veggie Wraps, and a Clementine Meanwhile, we have kids at my school ordering Postmates.

  • 7:06 I just about died

  • Woah woah woah woah woah what kind of school lunch is that cause that ain’t what they been feeding us

  • I WISH my school served the last one. I would tear that up! 😋

  • 4:51 AWWWWW SHE'S SOOO CUTTTTEEEEEE😍😍😍😍😭😭😭😭😍😍😍😘😘😘

  • 4:55

    • Those couple seconds are pretty cringey

  • 2:18 the soup tastes like steam. Lol!

  • That girl at 1:45 is sooooo picky about everything and cringe

  • You already know they get McDonald's after these episodes.

  • I feel bad for kids in the 1930s because.... Raisins I mean there wasn't any depressions going on

  • Of only I was a 90s kid

  • 7:10 "CHICKUUUUUNNNNNNN!!!!" That is the greatest thing ever

  • I went to school from the 90's to 2003 and we had a variety of food on the menu. I lived in Jersey so idk how it was anywhere else but I will say they had a variety of healthy and unhealthy lunches and you had to decide for yourself. If you didn't want pizza you could "enjoy" a salad and some fruit or you could get some of their delicious fries with cheese for 25 cents extra. Then they had the snack bar in high school that sold cookies, slushies, chips and candy and also french fries with the hot cheese all over it. Needless to say I started high school a size 7 and graduated a size 10.

  • TACO BELL YES PLEASE SIS

  • The 2010 stuff is pretty accurate. 2000s not so much. At least for me.

  • What the hell is going on with these. Modern school lunches are all much less edible.

  • Alright my school lunch is disgusting compared to any of this. Also these poor kids will never experience growing up with Capri Suns and pretending it's still full when you blow air into it😢

  • What the hell kind of school they go to in the 90's threw 2010's I didn't get none of that stuff, I got cardboard with tomato paste. And NO salt

  • Wish I, was living in the 1990s. My school lunch us terrible

  • You know that these kids aren't living a life if they don't know what a Capris - sun is 😭😭😭

  • am I the only one who likes oatmeal raisin cookies

  • There’s a lot of bread and there’s a lot of carbs in bread but if u eat too much the carbs build up inside u and then u become bread (Not the perfect quote btw)

  • what school systems did these meals come from, definitely from some city school,

  • These children genuinely piss me off

  • KAAPREEESUNNNN lmfaooo

  • Lol you must've been special if you got McDonald's for a SCHOOL lunch. Either it was for something like a kid's birthday or your parents must have been super cool to take you out of school for McDonald's, if that was even possible :P

  • I agreed that fast food companies shouldn't be in school cafeterias, but getting rid of soda machines is absurd in my opinion. The obesity epidemic is from what families eat at home and not school. Back in the day, soda machines existed at nearly every school and there wasn't a problem with overweight kids.

  • Hahhahahahhaha what a joke! What bloody private school did you get that 2010s lunch from?!

  • Why do we get the disgusting lunches and 70s kids get the good ones?!

  • United states 1900s: a pickle my country 2019:none

  • WTH?!! Why did I grow up in the 🇬🇧 UK we got stupid pizza and chips on a Friday! And though the week we got like fish pie and smash!🤢🤢

  • WTF I DIDN'T HAVE MCDONALDS FOR A SCHOOL LUNCH IN THE 90'S.

  • The 1950s meal doesn't look healthy at all. 1910s look good, if some salad was added. 1920s - this with some soup and fruits will be ok. 1930s - soup and vegetables and your good. 1940s - add a soup and change the fruits and vegetables from time to time. 1960s look ok, but there are no vegetables. 1970s - "school lunches only need to have minimal nutritional value" (oh. my. god.) 1980s - looks ok, but there is too much fried food and no vegetables. 1990s - king of unhealthy? 2000s - looks more healthy than 1990s, but no cooked food. 2010s- looks almost good, if something like cereal bread and soup were added. 1990s and 1950s look definitely the worst - in that order. Good old European and world school cafeterias (maybe except the UK and US one): ua-tv.org/tv/відео-rXK591Rp4BU.html ua-tv.org/tv/відео--7YBTX7vnVc.html

  • A banana in my school is 65 cents. A cookie is 25 cents each.

  • I remember the best luck ever on the 90s

  • _I-I- is it dog food?_

  • What school actually serves that wrap because I would take that over my school lunches

  • Where the H was the fast food when I was in school? I apparently went to all the wrong places...And the wrong time! That last lunch looked amazing! D:

  • wait wAiT y'know what dog food taste like...?

  • They do not know what Capri Sun is? They aren't real kids.

  • I dont have that food they have I get some frozen food that is disgusting

  • These kids aren’t the most grateful...

  • what the hell no mention of the Mexican pizza came looking like a stop sign covered in cheddah and was the stuff of dreams. Corn nuggets .50 bags of fries filled to the brim man I miss some of the lunch items. can't find the pizza anywhere but I can still get the corn nuggets at publix and walmart occasionally.

  • my Highschool discontinued the salad bar because the kids including me were eating from the salad bar more than the buffet. hilarious kids preferred the salad bar and eating healthy so the superintendent did away with it all together.

  • Next, let’s give them a taste of school lunches in France Deep-fried broccoli, anyone?

  • Watch as the health standard drops. However, it starts getting better.

  • 20..20/2

  • 90s one was the best for sure.

  • "It tastes like dog food..."

  • Pretty sure my 90s lunch look exactly like the 80s lunch. McDonald's was like a once a month treat as a kid. Also, where do they find these kids?lol even my nephews know what capris sun is.

  • WHHHAAAAATTT PICKLES ARE SSOOOO GOOOOOOOOOODDD

  • We never had free lunches like this!

  • 2010 is a complete lie the fuq

  • honestly I'd take the 80's lunch

  • "over half of us had fast foods in their cafeterias"... wtf

  • Wait... Kids ate food that didn't taste like horse bum??? Why am I still here? Just to suffer...

  • I was in Middle/High school during the 1990's and I can honestly tell you that Fast Food didn't exist in my cafeteria. That being said, the cafeteria offerings weren't much better than this...

  • Well done 1960's! Shame on you 1970's!

  • man, the 1980's school lunch is exactly like i remember my lunches in middle school being... in the early 2010's. right down to the pizza, except we weren't allowed to have the capri sun, just milk or frozen juice if they had it

  • Some of these kids are spoiled. Try being raised by your grandparents and only having black eyed peas, biscuits and fatback for lunch. When I was growing up, SOME kids didn't get breakfast or dinner at home (no money to buy food with) so school lunch was their only meal, and they were thankful for whatever was served.

  • T H E S O U P S M E L L S L I K E S T E A M

  • 2010s, healthy until you realize lunch meat is a class 1 carcinogen...

  • Give a little child a pickle for lunch lol People from that time were scum.

  • Where is the PB&J with water as a drink. I would have taken a lot of these lunches over boring sandwiches for years of my life.

  • 1940 and 1960 looked best to me.

  • I wish our school lunches were that good. I was in school in the early 2000's and a little before 2000's. (I'm 24.) Yeah I been to six different schools. Only one year where I would eat purely what was being served. Every other year I would either avoid it or for the most part. And just have a packed lunch. But I can say when I was in school Evergreen's salad bar was good. Even better in the high school. More options. (And now I'm hungry for a salad. TTwTT)

  • 0:41 1910 good simple lunch

  • i loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove chicken

  • yall got jiped they have you defective kids bruh... even my cousin with autism at the age of 4 knew what a caprisun... YOU HAVE BROKEN KIDS😂😂😂

  • Welp! Nowadays kids just so picky 😃

  • I was in school in the 2000s and the 1990s food is what I ate in the school cafeteria lol

  • Reeeeeeeeeeeer!!!

  • It's abridge food yal just picky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • They should make them go through school punishments through the decades.

  • 7:04 she is happy that she got taco bell .-. Im sorry little girl but you will have to go destroy the toilet 24/7 rest in peace toilet 420 - 6969

  • "They build up inside of you and then you become bread." Seems legit

  • 5:08 you're not the only one that eats a egg sandwich

  • Thank god i live in mexico and most schools dont have a cafeteria we just buy a snack from a nearvy OXXO oh wait you guys americans you dont know what a OXXO is xD

  • The carbs build up inside of you and then YOU BECOME BREAD.

  • What the actual hell. The baby boomers got all the good stuff as usual, gen x got freaking fried chicken, millennials got pink slime, fake juice, and crap because life sucks, and the gen z kids get to eat tide pods and a real damn lunch, the kind that an actual adult would eat! Sigh... Then you become bread.

  • I went to the cafeteria and they asked “chicken or dog?” It surprised me but later I came to the conclusion that they meant mini hot dogs and said dog for short but still 😂

  • kids these days are spolied

  • In 1970s college students went sledding on metal trays

  • Greasy foam blocks wrapped in plastic, served on plastic trays, eaten with plastic utensils. Purina People Chow with sugar water...yum...tomorrow's menu is type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease & obesity with caramel M&Ms for desert. And to think we're exporting this stuff around the planet.

  • Pretty sure they didn't have McDonalds/Chick Fil A/ Taco Bell for lunch in the 90s (at least for most schools)

  • "Ketchup now counted as a vegetable" bruh

  • I love the kid at 3:22 hahahha “It tastes like dog food”
