We want to ensure that the students get the maximum nutritional value by eating all of the food on their plates, so we administered taste tests with the fifth grade student government members at Sylvanie Williams College Prep to discover the most popular items. We had 15 different healthy options to taste, and the students sampled and ranked each item. We’ve also hung posters that promote healthy eating in the cafeterias. I am currently working on a whiteboard that will share the menu with students and staff each day and show how each part of the meal has nutritional value. We hope to show the students that they have the power to make healthy decisions!
