Hi everyone! It is time for us to start wrapping up our project :(. We
just finished the forum and it was successsful! We handed out our most
popular recipe, granola bars, and everyone was coming back for
seconds! We gave lots of information on our problem, solution,
website, recipes, surveys and more! Now we are working towards making
more recipes to add to our collection, finishing up our website and
starting our video compilation of the whole project. Stay tuned for
our video next week.
Hi everyone! So much has happened since our last blog post. At the
last minute we decided to set up a stand at Bristol Farms and hand out
samples. We handed out zucchini muffins, smoothie samples and granola
bars. Everything was made from scratch by us hours before we served
them. After people tried our food, we asked them a few questions so we
could collect data for the forum. We mostly targeted parents because
we wanted to know how likely they would be to feed their children our
recipes. We had a great time and we got an overwhelming amount of
positive feedback. It made us so happy to see everyone enjoying our
product and supporting our mission. Now we are working towards
processing the data, working on our poster and perfecting the website.
Stay tuned for next week’s updates!
Hi everyone! We have finally started recipe testing! It took us a
while before we could start making recipes because we wanted to make
sure that every recipe was innovative, fun and healthy but we have
finally begun the process! We have put in a lot of hard work in
processing all our survey feedback and then formulating creative
recipe ideas and we are so happy to finally start putting together our
cookbook. Some examples of the delicious recipes we have added to our
book so far are: cauliflower mac n’ cheese, kale pancakes and
different types of sorbets! Also, while we were thinking of recipes
based on kid’s favorite foods, we realized that we should also focus
on making recipes based on foods they didn't like so we can show them
that all foods can taste delicious. Make sure to check out our website
to see the recipes we have published so far! See you next week!
Hi everyone! A lot had changed since our last blog post! The main
choice we have made is to create a website instead of a cookbook. We
made this decision because we feel that a website is more sustainable
and it is easier for us to accomplish in the short period of time we
have for our project. Also, our survey is going out to our class very
soon! Once we get responses from our survey, we can begin
brainstorming fun recipes. We will also give out the survey to younger
children around 8-10 years old so we have a variety of ages giving us
their feedback. We have also began thinking of website format, recipe
formats and logos! Stayed tuned for more to come!
Hi everyone! What's cooking?! Welcome to our first blog post! After doing research, we have found that 34% of children from ages 2-19 rely on junk food on a daily basis. We want to take action and help children realize that healthy foods can be delicious and fun. We began to think of possible solutions to work towards our goal. At first we thought about focusing on low income families. We pitched an idea about making a box with 3 meals for families on a budget. We got lots of feedback saying that our idea wasn't very sustainable so we came up with a better solution.
After more collaboration, we realized that we had more passion towards working with kids. We then came up with the solution to create a healthy cookbook based off of kids. Our plan is to create a fun and innovative book filled with delicious and nutritious recipes for children and their family’s. We plan to survey children and ask what their favorite foods are. We will then take the most popular foods based off of our survey and we will create delicious, healthy and easy recipes for them to make at home. Our goal is to teach children that eating healthy is fun and delicious. We’ll update you on our progress next week!
