This Is What Hospital Food Looks Like Around The World

Hospital foods have a reputation for being subpar. The media almost always depicts hospice cuisine as colorless vegetables, mushy meat, or luminescent Jell-O. However, hospital food can be more than what we see on TV. In fact, one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had came from a hospital cafeteria.

Have you ever wondered what types of foods different hospital foods serve around the world?
