What do you know about hospital food around the world? Basically, we used to think that everything they serve in hospitals is not very tasty, to say the least. Actually, some of the countries might make you reconsider everything you thought you knew about hospital food! Wait until you see what the Japanese are cooking up for their patients!

For example, Japanese hospital food is a lot like a gourmet meal. Hot soba noodles, chicken in a mushroom sauce, and a daikon carrot side salad is just one example of a delicious-sounding hospital meal! Patients are also offered a small afternoon snack, such as a cream puff or a slice of cake with tea.

– Many U.S. hospitals seem to have the same staples: Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, and yogurt. Another day it might be chicken potpie with a chocolate chip cookie for dessert.
– Quiche, some type of fruit-and-nut salad, and a dainty dessert would be a common meal at a hospital in Switzerland.
– An Italian hospital would serve you gnocchi (that’ a delicious potato or flour dumpling served in a finger-licking sauce), whole fruits (like an apple or plum), and good old-fashioned water.
– The Germans like their “hot meal” in the middle of the day, with breakfast and dinner being a little simpler. The same holds true in their hospitals.
– In a Russian hospital, you might get a bowl of oatmeal with yogurt or cottage cheese as a side and a cup of tea or coffee to drink for breakfast. Come lunch or dinnertime, some popular staples are hotdogs with buckwheat or macaroni.
– In Thai hospitals, a boiled rice porridge dish called jok is often given to sick patients for breakfast because of its mild flavor and smooth texture.
– Most main dishes in Norway—even for a hospital—are going to be locally sourced, with meat consisting of elk, beef, or even reindeer!

– In Poland, the hospital meals are rather dainty: bread and butter, half a cucumber, and a piece of sausage. This would be your breakfast. For lunch, you may get a ham and cheese sandwich, another meat choice, more cucumber, and hot soup.
– In a Malaysian hospital, there are two diet options: standard and therapeutic. The therapeutic diet just refers to modifications that need to be made due to the patient’s needs, such as a lactose-free diet or a liquid diet.
– A typical hospital meal in the U.K. may be some roast beef, roasted potatoes, green beans, cheese, a white roll with butter, and peaches in cream.
– In a French hospital in Paris, you’ll be served a smoked salmon salad, chicken with a baguette, and a slice of pie! Lean meats such as that salmon and chicken are great for a healing patient, as are the veggies in the salad.
