Veggie Week
We celebrated Vegetable Week by offering taste tests of the new items we would be serving that week. Our Westwood Ambassadors offered samples to all at their lunch periods throughout the week. We had asparagus, power salad, jicama and beet sticks and squash. We then took a poll each day after the students had the chance to try something new to see what they thought. A lot of the kids were pleasantly surprised. The Ambassadors reminded the kids that taste buds change constantly, so what you didn’t care for last year, you might really like this year!! WE LOVE VEGGIES!!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We figured if we let the kids try the veggies prior to them being served, they would know what they were ordering. We found during our taste test that many of the kids had never had those veggies at home before. I"m hoping they asked mom to buy them since the test!
