Few can say they had a good school lunch experience.

Stereotypically sloppy and greasy and served up with greying mashed potatoes, canteen dinners are a childhood memory best forgotten.

Even prisoners would turn their noses up at some of it, according to the LA-based community blog GOOD.is.

This infographic was posted on the site, comparing the average daily offerings of jailhouses and elementary schools.

Both meals contain roughly the same number of calories (around 1,400) but what’s shocking is that prisoners are allowed a greater serving of fruit and vegetables than growing children.
