Penn Almanac

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

SnackGarden, a serving plate designed by Integrated Product Design (IPD) students at Penn to encourage school children to try healthy foods, has won a 2018 Design Value Award from the Design Management Institute (DMI). The product is the result of a collaboration between the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative and the IPD program. DMI, a Boston-based collective of design and innovation leaders, cited SnackGarden as “an excellent example of design-led change in the community, involving collaboration on complex challenges with multiple stakeholders in a very crowded public policy and service delivery space.”
