Give your kids some Veggiecation! This week on Feeding the Future, Orianne Cosentino is joined in the studio by Lisa Suriano, the creator of Veggiecation. Veggiecation is an initiative that brings healthy eating curriculum into schools, and teaches kids of all ages the benefits of vegetables. Hear about Lisa’s commitment to health, and how she was inspired by her father’s career as a chef. Learn how certain techniques like ‘the two bite rule’ help children learn to really taste and like vegetables. How successful has the program been in New York City schools? Orianne shares one of the Veggiecation recipes, and how it fared in the Todder Test Kitchen. This program has been sponsored by Rolling Press. Thanks to SNOWMINE for today’s music.
