Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Socialist Norway never had school meals, except for a few years after the war when times were very hard for most people.  Even then it was only optional school breakfast...milk and sandwiches and a piece of carrot or half an apple.  

Today children get milk and fruit (free for all) to go with their packed lunch.

Lunch is often consumed outside, and I don't think teachers bother about manners.  Norwegians generally don't have manners, so teachers would have to be trained themselves before they could teach.

Swedes are so much more polite than Norwegians - now I understand why:-)
