Veggiecation Program For Healthy School Lunches

Food For Thought: Improve Eating Habits at School With Veggiecation

The meals you send your kids to school with may make our Out of the Lunch Box chefs proud, but those sold in the cafeteria are famous for their unhealthy fare. And with childhood obesity rates on the rise and the battle with the vending machine continuing, there's an obvious need to clean up the lunchroom.

If it's time for your child's school to embark on a food revolution, a Veggiecation may help. Any school can purchase a membership in the program, which includes a series of lessons that teach kids about vegetables through the areas of science, literacy, art, social science, math, and PE, all while feeding them tasty meals that showcase the produce. Recipe booklets for each student to take home and veggie-themed posters, songs, and stickers are also included.
