Access to Healthy Foods
March 5-9 was Breakfast Week at VDELC. Cafeteria Manager Ms Kendra invited all students to try a breakfast at school. On a usual day, about 60 students would eat breakfast at school. During Breakfast Week, 120 students were taking advantage of healthy breakfasts at school.
What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?
Many parents and students were not aware they could have breakfast at school. Menus were sent home and daily announcements were made, encouraging students to try a school breakfast.
How did you accomplish your goals?
Little prizes were used as incentives. They were placed in random breakfast trays and students were surprised to find a special treat while eating a healthy breakfast. Some students even won passes to the local theater.
