Over time, we have worked to improve the taste of broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, carrots, and collard greens. Time after time, the results are the same: healthy vegetables are wasted in our school’s cafeteria. When students find healthy recipes that taste good, students consume the vegetables that they need. We then worked to persuade the cafeteria to make our recipes permanent fixtures on the menu. The Food Detective research project allows students to solve problems that are happening in their own school. They have taken ownership in promoting healthy eating at our school. Not only that, but it equips them with tools about food nutrition that can make a huge impact in their own bodies. Our students realize that they can see a problem and work to find solutions. This is a skill that will be required of them their whole lives.
