Breakfast Kiosk a Success!
- Sherrie Jordan, Chelsea High School
- Physical Activity Participation, Success with Funds
We chose to sign up for the 100 Mile Club and Billion Mile race as well. We currently have 150 students participating and numerous faculty/staff. FUTP 60 provided free pedometers for everyone, which is helping the students track their steps. For our nutritional program, we are working on incorporating more Grab and Go options at both breakfast and lunch to make it more convenient so students are more willing to purchase healthy meals from us. We have also started a Breakfast Snack Pack option to provide students to purchase on the go, or it can be purchased and saved for a snack later in the day. This has helped increase our participation already this year and we are up by 4-5% from the beginning of the year. We hope this continues to help improve our participation as we work towards bringing the students in not only for good nutrition but to help learn how to be more active.
