What's in a School Lunch?

Launch Infographic

Each school day, more than 30 million children are provided with reduced-cost or free lunches as part of the National School Lunch Program.  The NSLP requires that lunches meet nutritional guidelines established by the USDA.  Here are two lunches; each meets the USDA's guidelines.  One represents the type of processed foods typically found on school-lunch trays, and the other represents an alternative lunch of whole grains, legumes, low-fat dairy, fresh fruit, and vegetables.  Click here to see both lunches and decide which you would like to eat.

Design by Always With Honor.

GOOD and Whole Foods Market have teamed up to bring you a series of infographics and videos on what we eat: where it comes from, what's in it, and what choices you can make to ensure you're eating as well as possible. This is the first in a series of four infographics.
