Taste the Rainbow MAG

By Mai O., Phoenix, AZ

     I totally agree with Jill G. in “Taste the Rainbow.” I was surprised at American food when I came here this year from Japan. I thought teenagers were not interested in eating. Pizza or hamburgers for lunch? How do they absorb vitamins? I am still wondering.

The other thing I was surprised at is that everything is frozen! Frozen pizza, frozen vegetables, frozen apple pie!

In Japan, my mom cooks breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day, and we spend an hour as a family around the table. I know Americans have their own culture, but I pity them. Dinner is a good time to have fun with your family. Thank you, Jill, for pointing out how important mealtime is.
