Video made to promote healthy eating, school garden bars

garden bar video

Havelock High student Travis Sabdo leans in to the garden bar during a video production last week. Five area schools will have the garden bars during the 2014-15 school year, and the video is designed to promote healthy eating and the proper use of the garden bars.

Havelock football coach Jim Bob Bryant has told quarterback Travis Sabdo not to drop the ball time and again, but last week, the senior player fumbled a pair of lettuce tongs half a dozen times.

Sabdo’s butter fingers were part of the play, or rather script, being followed in a video production introducing garden bars to school lunchrooms in Craven County.

The stars of the show were players from the Havelock High football team, and the production was made by a team from the school’s digital media class.

Five Craven County schools, including Havelock High and Tucker Creek Middle School, will be implementing salad bars as part of their regular school lunch fare for the 2014-15 school year.

Gretchen Wilson, director of child nutrition for Craven County Schools, said the purpose of the video is to help students understand the protocol and etiquette of serving themselves meals at the salad bar.

“The video will help students understand how to do it, the sanitation whys of it and just overall customer relations to it,” she said.

In the video, Sabdo is corrected over and over by teammate Anthony Fisher for unsanitary practices, like picking up salad items with his own hands instead of using tongs, using tongs after they’ve been dropped on the floor, or breathing on the salad bar, which could spread germs.
