Kerstin Kronvall, journalist of YLE TV channel, praised the diet and culture of eating in Russian schools after visiting the educational institution of Gatchina. The journalist wrote about the proposal of Russian president Vladimir Putin to provide all elementary school students with free hot meals and the support of this initiative from school staff, RIA Novosti reports.

Kronvall wrote that the children at the Gatchina school ate borsch and pasta with a patty for lunch. Bread and compote were also served for everyone. The journalist was delighted with the attitude of schoolchildren towards hygiene - the class washed their hands before sitting at the table. The Finnish correspondent also described in detail the system in Russian schools, according to which students of one class help with serving meals to other students.

The journalist also mentioned the culture of eating in school canteens. She described how children learn to behave at the table, handle cutlery, and also acquire communication skills for food.
