What's Cooking?



Your panel will need to locate a vast amount of material to review and evaluate.  Below find suggestions of ways to gather data.

  • Interviews - nutrition consultant or dietitian,  lunchroom supervisor, students
  • Surveys - survey monkey, written
  • Research  - (web) nutrition requirements for schools, hospitals, recipes, food values, bulk buying prices, handling procedures, holding time/temperatures
  • Lab prep - altering recipes, taste-testing recipes
What information do we already know? What other information would be helpful in making informed decisions? How should interviews be conducted?  How do we find the information we need to begin this process?  How do we find nutritional information?  How will your findings be presented?
