At our community, lot of Filipinos love street foods. Whenever food carts pass by and they hear it, they will immediately call it so they could by some. But because we know that these street foods are not nutritious, our group thought of making a street food out of a vegetable. The researchers thought of using alugbati since alugbati is already available at their backyard. The alugbati is a great source of antioxidant, vitamins A, B and C, iron and calcium. It also contains high roughage and it’s very easy to digest. They also added some shrimps to add flavor. Shrimp is a good sourc of calcium, iodine, and protein.
First we harvested some alugbati leaves and we washed it with water. Then we sliced it thinly. After that, we mixed all the ingredients and added the alugbati leaves. We then shaped it into small balls and fried it in oil until it was golden brown.
Our study generally aims to produce a kind of street food that is nutritious, special, and of course, delicious using this kind of leafy vegetable.
We are also aiming to compare the taste, appearance, and odor of our own alugbati balls from fishballs, chicken balls and kikiam. After we have made the survey, it shows that our alugbati balls is very much acceptable for mothers than letting their children eat other kind of street foods. Acknowledgement

Our alugbati balls is also a significant source of cholesterol
