Cantines scolaires always offer a large and healthy meal with three courses. No sandwiches or packets of crisps here! Think hot or cold starter, a main with meat and vegetables, cheese ( naturellement!) and/or – depending on the school – dessert. Of course, there are burger and chips or spaghetti bolognese days, but they remain a ‘special day’ and kids get excited for those kind of fun meals which means they are more of a treat rather than a regular occurrence.
