This Fall, six schools participated in the Taste Masters Taste Tests. Students tasted a salad made with julienne local apples, arugula and Manchego, a cheese made from sheep's milk. Lessons about the ingredients were delivered to some of the classes and included an activity and lesson about how to include all their senses when evaluating a new food.
Student Web Leaders from American Indian Magnet help encourage younger students to try the Taste Masters samples.
At Frost Lake, Carol (Wellness Champion) and Michelle (Cafeteria Supervisor) brought their positive energy to the event.
Taste Masters is sponsored by Kowalski's Markets and offers students and teachers lessons about new foods that are then tested in the cafeteria. During the lessons, we answer the questions such as
