You Can Imagine This Being Used To Advocate Diverse Nutrition
While reminding you of the strange cartoons which came out of the 90s, at the same time, Meal On The Plate presents a comical advocate for better nutrition amongst viewers. Be it having more vegetables, the dangers of solely eating meat, and it can even represent the persecution some vegans/ vegetarians feel in society—all in a way that leans more towards being comical than preachy.
Our Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing)
Meal On The Plate is bound to fuel nostalgia as it pushes you to think about cartoons you may have grown up with that didn’t seek to look overtly polished and made for the amusement of the Disney crowd. Meal On The Plate wants to tap into that out there, borderline WTF feelings that you or your parents had while presenting more than an odd comical tale, but also a message.
