Students Use EatFresh to Create Healthy Meal Plans

by Erin Franey

The EatFresh.org Meal Plan Challenge is a collaborative project between the Department of Children, Youth, and their Families (DCYF) and EatFresh.org. Drawing from Leah's Pantry Food Smarts curriculum we created a three-session series that combines activities about building a healthy meal with EatFresh.org. exploration. The students each designed their own meal plans, picked their favorite, and as a group we prepared it. The meal plans will soon be available on EatFresh.org in our recently launched meal plan feature

Jamestown SF and Glide Children's have both participated in the Meal Plan Challenge. The middle school students at Jamestown SF chose "Juicey Appleitos" as the title for their plan, which included Turkey Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches, Autumn Salad, and Cinnamon Baked Goldens

Next week students from Chinatown YMCA will also participate in the Meal Plan Challenge.
