Have you ever heard of a Jicuma, let alone tried to pronounce Jicama? Check out this funny educational video for kids that shows just how much kids don’t know about their vegetables.

We’ve all heard how kids and teenagers don’t eat enough vegetables. To see how true this is, we did a test at a local high school to see how many students can name their vegetables. The results are both funny and telling.

We partnered with Kaitlyn Montcrieff and Elizabeth Tammi, Lead Anchors and News Directors for WRORTV, Oviedo High School’s daily news show; they were happy to give us a glimpse of how high school students view their vegetables and whether they can name that vegetable!

Only 10% of high school students eat enough fruits and veggies. Creating a better, healthier environment in schools and at home is essential in combating the current obesity epidemic, where one in three kids, and two in three adults are obese or overweight.

This is why we need to try and get more kids into the kitchen to learn about the foods they should eat. We need more food education and it starts right here! It starts at home with vegetables, like jicama–the good thing is is you don’t have to learn how to pronounce them in order to eat them.
