I posted this photo on Instagram and felt compelled to share it here, because I’m curious about what you have to say?
This is the compost sign used to direct elementary students to compost food scraps. Why are those images chosen to depict food that elementary kids would be eating? When I was a kid, those food items were considered treats; defined as something had on occasion not as a staple because they weren’t considered best foods for nourishing a growing body nor ideal for maintaining a healthy one.
These are lousy images to have on a compost sign anywhere, but especially at a school. Those food options are lousy choices at the best of times, but why showcase that kind of eating to young kids.
Imagine the subliminal message these youngsters are picking up!
Who chose this sign?
What do you think?
