Allen Healthy Selfies!
Students at Allen Elementary in Frisco ISD were challenged to choose healthy snacks while at home or at school and submit their own "Healthy Selfies!" Parents, Teachers and Students alike all joined in the fun!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

During this challenge, we observed a heightened awareness on the part of our students as to what they chose for their daily snacks. Students took great pride in sharing what healthy choices they made, instead of choosing snacks high in sugar or fat. Students also were more willing to try new fruits and vegetables in the school cafeteria so that they could participate in the challenge.
