Access to Healthy Foods, Physical Activity Participation,  Student Leadership

6th grade students are participating at the dance. Our FUTP 60/Health and Wellness Team got bananas, apples, and dairy products for healthy options. Our leadership team is in charge of the music, healthy snacks, and games.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

My FUTP 60/Health and Wellness Team collaborated with 6th grade teachers to help sell the tickets, create games, and sell the snacks.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

One of the challenges was to find time to collaborate. We accomplished this by 6th grade team writing down the needs and giving it to our Advisor. Then I gave the list to our FUTP 60 team and they went to work.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids are eating healthier and rethinking their drink and food choices.
