Sweetgreen is a chain of salad restaurants that runs a Sweetgreen in Schools program to educate kids about healthy eating, fitness, and sustainability. They want to shed light on what is a quality lunch by looking at typical school lunches around the world.

Through these revealing images they want to make an impact and to connect kids to “real food,” and hope to change the way future generations eat.

From Italy to Brazil to South Korea, trays are full of fresh fruit, veggies, and yummy-looking entrees. In comparison, the typical, processed lunch for US students could stand to get a menu improvement.
