We are pleased that the positive effects of our program on children’s consumption, knowledge and attitudes towards vegetables has been studied, reviewed and published in the academic journals below.
Research showed that students participating in the Veggiecation® program in school for one year reported a 63% higher daily consumption of vegetables as opposed to a school with no nutrition education program. We are also pleased to report that 83.3% of parents reported that the children in the intervention group tried new vegetables after the intervention.
