Healthy Pizza Survey

We had a community evening event where families could come and enjoy a meal with a movie. When parents and children entered the school, the student leaders surveyed each individual by asking them about their favorite type of pizza and what they thought was the healthiest type of pizza. Everyone thought that veggies on top of pizza added nutritional value and they were correct. Most people enjoyed eating cheese pizza but many said that they would try a piece of the veggie-topped pizza.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had to work together to plan the event and order the pizza. We also created the posters and worked together to translate the questions into Spanish.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We had to make sure that everyone participated in the survey. There were a lot of people arriving at the same time and it took a while to make sure we asked everyone to participate.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students and staff are more aware of healthy eating choices.
