Garden to Table evaluation

The philosophy of Garden to Table (GTT) is to encourage children to learn to grow, harvest and cook their own fresh, seasonal vegetables, thus encouraging higher vegetable consumption. This project aims to evaluate the programme in four low decile Wellington schools to ascertain whether it improves the nutritional quality of children’s diets, nutrition knowledge and willingness to try new foods.
