However, these school dinners are the best the world to offer.

American restaurant chain Sweetgreens and a Scottish schoolgirl’s blogging site Never Seconds compared school dinners from across the world and demanded that schools in the UK and USA did not have to serve processed meats.

Lorna Driver-Davies, a nutritional therapist at NutriCentre, ranked the school dinners in France, Korea and Brazil as the best.

She told MailOnline: ‘Looking at the lunches from across the world, it seems mixed in terms of how balanced the diets are.

‘Looks can be deceiving, since while the Finnish lunch looks very healthy – the focus is on starchy carbohydrates, starchy vegetables and fruit so for me it’s lacking in adequate protein or green leafy vegetables.

‘My favourite is the Korean meal since fermented foods are great for gut health and the children are given a starchy carbohydrate such as rice, but also green and colourful vegetables and fish – boosting protein levels.’

She added: ‘The French meal was also very good since they are leaning towards giving vegetables and meat rather than too much bread or pasta and the French cheese will give some protein, fat soluble nutrients and calcium.

She said: ‘The Brazilian meal was as good as the Korean, since there is an emphasis on meat and plant proteins and vegetables.’
