Breakfast with Buddies
- Laura Haynie, Cedar Ridge Middle School
- Physical Activity Participation
Our team came up with the idea to promote more breakfast eating by offering physical activities after students ate breakfast. We came up with a theme every 2 weeks and did a special activity after breakfast. The students were rewarded for bringing a buddy with them as prizes were awarded to both for participation. On average, our breakfast program feeds around 20-25 daily, but during our special events we would serve 90-100. We also did a special breakfast activity every day during National Breakfast Week. We also offer smoothies during our special breakfast time and students love the refreshing addition to their regular menu.
