About Food Education in Japan


Although this website is for the international exchange and monitoring of food education around the world, it’s true - we focus on Japan and Asia! Japanese school lunch has been a part of Japanese culture since the 1950s, but has truly come into its own since the 1990s. This section of the website is dedicated to sharing the history, nutritional guidelines, student involvement, and other factors that go into making school lunch and food education possible.
