Re: Getting Kids to Eat Vegetables

Okay - so we live in an age where our cutting board is supposedly more dangerous than the knives that we cut with. If I were to enlarge this project to the size of a small school group I would be required to get a certificate in food handling, in addition to a professional kitchen with periodic food safety inspections. Alice Waters's Edible Schoolyard has its own garden kitchen, in a separate building - which is far beyond my school budget.(My school district doesn't start Home Ec until middle school, so no cooking classes for the lower grades)
