Sweetgreen - an American organisation committed to helping students make healthier lunch choices - has created a new photo series showing the average school lunch in countries all around the world. Of course, lunch meals vary day to day and from school to school, so Sweetgreen studied various government initiatives, food programs, and nutritional policies and matched them with photos of school meals that students had shared on social media, recreating them in a studio to come up with what an "average" meal looks like. It becomes quite clear that the US is a way behind, and that is what Sweetgreen hope to change in the near future.
