American Mom Living in France Shares 4 Reasons Why French School Lunches Are Unmatched

When we think of the food served abroad, it all seems so mysterious yet delicious. That’s because other countries tend to use natural and organic ingredients. They don’t use many of the pesticides and chemicals allowed in American food. But this doesn’t cover the food found in grocery stores, markets, and restaurants. The high-quality food is found throughout foreign countries. It’s served in businesses and schools. If you think American school lunches aren’t reaching their potential, it’s okay. French schools are definitely giving their kids what they need for lunch.

In a TikTok video, American mom and content creator @isabellebertolami shares the changes coming to her child’s French school lunch menu. It’s even better than we imagined. We're totally doing it wrong in the US.

We love the changes being implemented into French school lunches. The inclusion of organic food, seasonal fruits and veggies, locally grown food, and vegetarian meals is what we all want here in the states. We can’t say enough nice things about what French schools are doing with their lunches. Let’s see how the TikTok community reacted to this video. User @Megan Johnston said, “As a former French major and future dietitian, I’m loving this content. How fabulous!” @Janet asked, “What’s it like living in a country where rational decisions are made and implemented?” @user1582096250898Trilbie replied, “So far ahead of American schools.”

Yes, sadly, American schools could learn much from the French. But it’s not a lost cause. Changes can happen if people stay persistent and don’t give up. If you enjoyed the video, please visit @isabellebertolami’s TikTok channel. It’s full of the American mom in Paris content you want to see.
