15-21 August We wanted to promote healthier foods byWe felt that the students in our school using monetary incentives, however thiswere eating much too unhealthily for theirown good and we wanted to change the was found to be unfeasible. Also, we wanted to create a healthy, cheap, andsituation before long term negative nice meal for students to choose whenimpacts came about. deciding what to eat during recesses and lunch breaks. We promoted this to our peers and also tried to talk with the stall owners. We targeted stall owners which the students indicated in their survey as unhealthy stalls. We tried to convince them to get healthier options for food, and also aid them in choosing healthier food. We also put up posters in a three-day Design for Change event held in our school. Through the posters, we hoped to garner support and create more awareness among the entire school community. Even though it was left unmanned for most part of the day, we believe that the staff and students went to the posters and learned something new from them, and gained a new perspective. Our talk with the stall owners had a great impact on our group. We realised that the stalls had already used healthy foods in their meals, and already used healthier substitutes for certain foods. One stall however, was not receptive to change refused to change. We believe that we should also change the perspectives of the school body about the stalls in the canteen in terms of healthy eating.
