Follow Friday: School lunches around the world



This collection of photographs of school lunches from around the world has been shared on twitter and facebook a lot. On the off chance that you haven’t seen it yet it’s interesting and mouth-watering. It’s sad to see the American school lunch. Even sadder to know that Canada doesn’t have a national school lunch program. However, it’s nice to see that some countries have nutritious and appealing school lunches. We can only hope that North America will learn from their examples.

  1. The lunches looked amazing and beautifully presented. I’ve seen this post before, on FB, and what caught my attention from the beginning was that all of the pictures have the same background. I will be curious to see pictures of internatioinal lunches taken from actual school cafeterias.


  2. Reblogged this on dietitianeats and commented:
    Very cool visual piece on meals from around the world. I’ve got a book with a similar feel.
    As Diana did, I feel this is really ‘shareworthy’.
