Getting kids to love veggies: Project Intro

So, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m taking this awesome class in the undergraduate Earth Systems department at Stanford called Practices and Principles of Sustainable Agriculture. Our final project is incredibly broad and is supposed to reflect our own personal interests and passions that fall under the umbrella of sustainable ag. I’ve decided to produce a series of blog posts which I’ll share on this blog. Here’s what I’m planning:

  • Topic: “Investigating Healthy Eating: How do you make kids try, love, and consume lots of vegetables?
  • Description: This project will consist of a series of interviews answering the topic question. I’ll conduct interviews with experts in the field who are taking different approaches towards accomplishing the same goal. In each blog post, I’ll describe the interviewees distinct theory of change (i.e., what they’re theory is for getting kids to love their veggies) and how their work aligns to this theory. I’ll explore any results they’ve achieved and discuss future challenges they expect to face in furthering their progress towards their goal.

The project needs to be completed by Thursday, December 8th. If you have any ideas for people I should interview, please let me know by commenting on this post. Thanks!
