4 things that make Japanese lunches amazing
In Japan, lunch breaks are not only considered as a break time from students’ academic pursuits.
They are also considered as an opportunity to teach children about formative values like responsibility and discipline.
A video by America Versus outlined what make Japanese lunches different from other countries and what they can pick up from the practice.
1. Japanese lunches are healthy because they are made from scratch by the lunch staff and prepared from scratch. No need to worry about harmful preservatives.
2. Students take turns in serving each other, instilling in them the value of hard work.
3. Japanese children are also taught to clean up after their meals which teaches them discipline.
4. After fulfilling their assignments, they bow to each other and show appreciation for a job well done, which teaches them good manners and the essence of cooperation.
There’s something we can all learn from this amazing approach. (ANGEL ONG)
