A Guide to Taste Testing Local Foods in Schools

This guide will give you the tools and resources to help implement a taste testing program in your school in order to:

• Broaden student experiences with a variety of foods
• Introduce foods that are locally grown and available
• Integrate into school meals new, local foods that students will accept
• Involve students and staff in school food change

Also included is a small sampling of school taste test case studies that represent what is happening all over Vermont to introduce new flavors in the cafeteria and classroom. These schools have created healthier food environments by encouraging children to try new and different foods, many grown and produced locally. Your school can do it, too!
