Veggie of the Week: Spinach

By
Whitney Carroll,   Holy Name School
Play:
Topics:
Access to Healthy Foods
Each week, our school is featuring a vegetable to try at lunch. Last week, we kicked off with radishes. This week is spinach! If students take on the challenge and try it, they are rewarded behavior points for taking on and trying out new possibilities for their balanced meals and healthy lifestyles. Kids and teachers are engaging themselves in this challenge. 

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We plan to make this last during the school year and beyond by making a list of possibilities and communicating to each other how these vegetables are beneficial to our students.

How did you accomplish your goals?

To accomplish this goal, we wanted to make this fun and an open opportunity for students to participate. Students watch enough youtube videos of other kids trying new foods or making foods for each other to try. Now its a possibility in real life!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Over the past two weeks, more students want to participate and be challenged, as well as looking forward to the next challenge.
