If you’ve got school-aged kids, you know it can be hard to get them to eat enough fruits and vegetables. Now, some Hillsborough County students are taste testing new recipes designed to get them eating healthier.

A district chef is visiting the schools delivering several new fruits and veggies each week, and letting kids assemble the recipes on their own.

StateImpact Florida's John O'Connor tried to find out if the kids liked them.
