I am about to post a photo of the kids' meal Alek ordered at a family restaurant a few days ago.
Before I show you, I want to you pause so you can form a mental image of the most recent U.S. kids' meal you've seen.
Okay, now you are ready:
What's here? A scoop of rice with seaweed sprinkles. One tempura shrimp. One french fry. One small sausage. One small pile of ketchup. One box of juice. And one small bowl of udon noodles with wakame, fried tofu, and onions.
