A Successfully "SMooth"- ie Story

Our smoothie Kickoff was a giant success. We had a radio station, newspaper, and local farmers to help implement the new healthy snack addition in our cafeteria. The students loved them and even commented, "I didn't know healthy could taste so good."

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students and faculty have been choosing healthier choices at breakfast. I think it has shown students that healthy can taste good and it is something they can do at home.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The faculty and students at DCMS really collaborated well together. Students assisted the cafeteria staff in passing out the smoothies. They are already on board next year trying to make plans to keep the healthy habits going.
