Welcome to 2018 – it’s going to be a busy policy year! In D.C., we anticipate continued advocacy around AmeriCorps funding (more on that below) and Congress will continue debating and drafting the reauthorization of the Farm Bill, which includes some important priorities for FoodCorps.
Like many kids his age, Matthew hated vegetables. Over months of hands-on lessons, we tasted a dozen vegetables. I made it my mission to find one he’d like. The whole class joined in, encouraging him to try veggies at lunch. One spring day in the cafeteria, it happened: Matthew tasted a cucumber for the third time and he liked it.
When you’re at your wit’s end trying to get a kid to try a new vegetable, you resort to the Trojan Horse method: hiding the offending food in other dishes. The logic goes as such: you love Little One, Little One hates healthy food, but you’ll be darned if Little One isn’t eating healthy, whether they know it or not.
