Students selecting from food optionsStudents at Lackawanna Middle School had fun taste testing root vegetables and voting for their favorites in the cafeteria on Jan. 24!

Sampled root vegetables included rutabaga, parsnips, rainbow carrots and beets. The vegetables were all New York State grown.

For an additional treat, students tasted brownies sweetened with beets. The final results had rainbow carrots as the winner, followed by parsnips, beets and rutabaga!

This was supported by a grant from Action For Healthy Kids, with support from Personal Touch Food Service and Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Grant!
