Students at MacDonough Middle School in Middletown got a lesson on Wednesday on healthy eating. 

Children got to take part in taste tests on lunch to see what fruits and veggies they would actually put on their plate without being told to.

“The more times you try something, the more times you’re likely to eat it in the future,” explained Paige Petit with FoodCorps, a national nonprofit that works to connect kids to healthy food in schools.

The goal is to eventually give input on new menu items to cafeterias.
