What School Lunches Look Like Around The World

Sweetgreen, a set of restaurants, decided to compare what school children eat for lunch around the world. They presented their research in the form of a series of photographs of the typical lunch kids are given in the cafeteria. In most places, it’s clear that schools try to give kids a portion of healthy food, but it’s fascinating to see the different approaches various countries take depending on their culture and climate. Maybe this will give you some idea of what to feed your own offspring tonight!
