Mango Taste Test

The FUTP 60 team held a taste test to allow students to try a healthy food they might have never have the opportunity to eat. We set up a table in the commons area with samples of mango for the kids to grab on the way to their classes​​ along with information sheets about the nutritional benefits of mangoes. All the students appeared really excited about the taste test and were encouraging all their friends to try the yummy mangoes!

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

It was difficult to choose a food that students would enjoy and was allergy free for the entire student body. The FUTP 60 team met with school nurses to settle on a food item and check for allergies on record.
