Washington Youth Garden

Why we need the Washington Youth Garden...

April Martin

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the overt vegetableness of vegetables? Or underwhelmed by the lack of cheese on your vegetables? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, this macaroni and cheese dinner made with veggie pasta is for you! One serving of pasta, provides a half serving of the five suggested daily servings of vegetables.  The small print on the side panel lists the pasta ingredients as enriched wheat flour, durum wheat flour, niacin, ferrous sulfate and dried cauliflower. Delicious…

An unnamed member of the Washington Youth Garden staff purchased this off the 50% off rack at Safeway in a weak moment and found it tasted quite a lot like honest Mac and Cheese with a hint of broccoli.

Does anyone else think there is something a little wrong when it’s acceptable for a food manufacturer to market its product with a back panel that berates vegetables for their “overt vegetableness?”  Should we have to sneak veggies into our kids’ meals?

It’s time to rebuild our connection to our food!
