Almost Every American, age 5 or older, has stories about their school lunches. Most of those stories are about how bad the food is. Over 30 million American school children eat lunch in the cafeteria every school day, and statistics show that the nutritional value of these meals is substandard.
Restaurateurs at Sweetgreen became concerned about the quality of food being served to today’s youth and decided to do something about it. They compared lunches served to the students in schools around the world to those served in the U.S…The results were eye opening.
This in depth photo spread shows the fresh and nutritious meals that students around the world are served in comparison to those eaten by Americans. The differences are like night and day. Children in other countries enjoy local meats, fruits, and veggies served “al fresco”, in attractive arrangements that invite you to enjoy your meal.
The company hopes to prove that with all the delicious fresh foods , and diverse cooking styles available in our country, school meals could be so much better. I know that I got hungry just looking at the pictures!
