We work to create healthy deliciousness with kids in schools and in communities.
We impact the supply of healthy food by developing healthy food products that are then sold to schools.
We impact the demand for healthy food through experiential learning and working directly with kids in schools creating good food.
What is healthy deliciousness?
We create food that is both tasty and nutritious. There are many healthy food options, but most do not taste good. Finding food that is both healthy and delicious is incredibly difficult. Our goal is to create it. Healthy deliciousness is also fun because it engages students to learn more about nutritious foods.
A kid’s diet is very unhealthy. Affordable snacks available in corner stores are not nutritious, and commercials are everywhere advertising innutritious food. Many kids think their school’s food tastes gross, despite it’s affordability and availability to everyone. We want to be the change in our community. We are young people who create healthy, affordable, and tasty products and distribute them to students in Philadelphia and beyond.
Youth Powered Healthy Deliciousness
What do we do next? My students were SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!! This could also be part of our project-based learning. One child, who has behavior problem, began formulating his ideas right then and there. I had to let him do some research, right in the moment, because something in him came to life! We need this!!!!!
I like the Rebel Crumbles because they are a healthy breakfast. Some mornings I’m running late to school so on my walk in this is a quick breakfast I can eat so I’m not starving and I can learn. The fact that they’re made by high school students inspires me because it makes me feel it’s something I can do now or in the near future.
I am learning the ins and outs of a business which adds to my personal knowledge. Also, I learned to create opportunities for myself and take on difficult obstacles. The most important thing I will carry with me is Youth Power because Rebel Ventures is not Rebel Ventures without all of dedicated high school students.
