The Wisconsin Farm to School Evaluation

About This Tool
The Wisconsin Farm to School Evaluation (beginning fall 2010) began using a student survey to
assess factors believed to predict or influence fruit and vegetable consumption:
 Attitudes toward eating fruits and vegetables: fruit/vegetable neophobia, or fear of
trying new fruits/vegetables (in various settings, with different/unknown names, if it
looks strange, etc.)
 Knowledge about nutrition and agricultural concepts
 Perception/Self-efficacy for making healthy eating choices
 Exposure to a series of specific fruit and vegetable items
 Liking of the specific fruits and vegetables students have tasted (as reported in
Exposure)
 Willingness to try the specific fruits and vegetables (i.e., if they hadn’t previously tried it,
or if they had tried it and not liked it).
 Fruit and Vegetable Screener – a brief series of questions about what fruit/vegetable
items (grouped) students remember eating in the past day, and how much of each.
