Breakfast Week at Riverdale Elementary!
- Melissa Olson, Riverdale Elem School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Our chosen Student Ambassadors completed the school wellness investigation and found that our school breakfast was an area of need. The students interviewed peers to see what the barriers were to eating a nutritious breakfast every day. They found many students skip breakfast and weren't aware of the program offered before school. Our Ambassadors created a menu using student suggestions for the week. They created a newsletter to send home to educate families about the importance of breakfast. When the week arrived, we gave away prizes to all breakfast participants (stickers, bookmarks, posters, etc).
