Animated Lunch

Making school meals more stimulating, cartoon aesthetics add allure to the ordinary

Implications - While bringing homemade lunches to school is definitely a cost-effective solution for parents, persuading children to eat those lunches within a society dominated by fast food can be challenging. As a method to add more allure to ordinary school meals, consumers are turning to youthful cartoon aesthetics to add visual references that kids can easily identify and relate to. Lunches transformed into Sci-Fi or video game characters help revamp mundane meals into stimulating references, reflecting the need for more age-appropriate methods of enticement.
