The Rosedale Neighborhood in Kansas City, Kansas, had a problem: their childhood obesity rate was 51 percent. The root of the problem came from the Rosedale Middle School cafeteria—but it wasn’t the food that was making the children obese. Instead, designers pointed to the room's layout and wall decorations, which presented the food in a bland and unappetizing way. The Protein Pods and a New Coat of Paint initiative redesigned the cafeteria to be more conducive to healthy eating. Now, the cafeteria features detailed descriptions of the healthy foods, as well as an altered flow that puts healthy foods on kids’ plates first.
