re: It's lunchtime at school and they're serving your favorite meal: Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. You really like the meatloaf and mashed potatoes ...
 

Maybe I'm stretching the analogy too far here, but the compartiments in your tray can have little labels to indicate what should go where. So if, like me, you prefer carrots over peas, the server can just pick those delicious sweet things out for you, you don't want the peas taking up space in your tray, as that makes it heavier to carry back to your table.
