School Lunches Around the World - Barbados
For many kids in Barbados, the best part of school is the morning snack of milk and biscuits—known as cookies to us Americans—provided free in all schools since the 1930s. The locally produced Wibisco brand biscuits have nourished generations of children. In 1963, the government began a hot lunch program, with meals, beans and rice, mostly, delivered by van to schools around the island.
