We had a fresh fruit and smoothie day for Banneker Celebration of the FUTP 60 program. Every student received a nectarine, banana, and strawberry. They tasted smoothies that were made with low-fat yogurt too. We love getting extra snacks that are healthy for us.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We have a nutrition wellness program in the KC school District. We get fresh fruit weekly. But in PE we had a Celebrate FUTP 60 Day and received fresh fruit and Smoothies. Just an activity for our fuel up to play 60 program. We also continued our Smoothie Day with the blenders we purchased. A great way to get a healthy snack during the school day.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Some students have allergies and some just didn't like the fruit. Most of them liked the Smoothies though.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We need to have more of a choice instead of just 3 types. We suggested fruits like the star fruit that many students haven't gotten. But this is an easy way to introduce healthy eating to the students in a short time.
