Lunch of German School Girls After WWII
Here is an interesting photo, dated on Feb. 1946, showing German children using Kochgeschirren as lunch pails. The original caption reads: “The children tilt their ‘mess kits’ to make sure none of the soup is wasted. Desks serve as tables. Note the ‘table cloths.'”

The reverse of the original photo has an information label, to put context to the photo.

The label reads: “BERLIN, GER.– Personal observation by Emil Reynolds, Acme Correspondent, or a good many of Europe’s children as borne out the conclusion that the small fry in Germany are as healthy, if not healthier, than most small fry.

Under the four-power government, Berlin schools instituted a school feeding program in November of 1945. Allied nutritional authorities, who had established an initial food ration of 1360 calories as sufficient for children under 15 years old, increased the ration by another 190 calories for the school program.

The meal consists of one pint of hot potato or noodle soup, and is cooked in about 100 school and public kitchens throughout berlin. Evidences of diet deficiencies have declined markedly since the beginning of the program.

In addition to improving the health of the child, the program has increased attendance at the schools.

Nutritional teams continually check on the health of the population, and schools remain an important part of their itinerary. These photos by Emil Reynolds were taken during a meal in one of these schools.”
