Are kids getting enough?

The Fruit and Vegetable Research Project began in 2006 with an evaluation of the USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) in Wisconsin schools.

The history and implementation of the FFVP is described in more detail on the USDA and website at, while more information regarding Wisconsin's implementation of the FFVP can be found on the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website at

Over time this research has expanded to explore many methods of motivating children to eat more fruit and vegetables. Thus far, surveys have been conducted in many schools across the state of Wisconsin with a particular focus on schools in the Chippewa Valley. Our focus has been on the influences of availability and accessibility as well as incentives in increasing fruit and vegetable intake among children.

Our student-faculty research teams have published several peer reviewed articles and have written many reports and given many presentations. Below you will find links to the findings, publications and presentations.

If you have a further interest in this project, for example, access to data and publications or a more detailed analysis, please contact Professor Eric Jamelske at 715-836-3254 or by email at

In particular, please feel free to contact Dr. Jamelske if you have any ideas for future research projects related to children's fruit and vegetable consumption and/or if you would like to collaborate on a future research project with our group.
