How can we get students excited to try new things on the salad bar?

Q.

Do you have any tips for how to get students excited to try new things on the salad bar? They seem to eat carrots and cucumbers only when there is Ranch Dressing.

Answer: Organize school-wide tastings. We find doing bi-weekly school-wide tastings is a great first step to getting kids to try new things.  Turn it into a community event where everyone gets excited about trying new food. There’s safety in numbers and peer-pressure can be used in a positive way in this case.
