Dairy is all around and we are going to try it now!

Students had an opportunity to watch the Farm to School video during a health lesson at school. Our school has the opportunity to provide snacks for students kindergarten through sixth grade twice a week. We thought it would be a great way to include dairy in our healthy snack. Our school is currently learning more and more about the process it takes to grow and produce healthy foods and how they come to our school. The students in the picture are enjoying a healthy snack with white milk!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We are hoping to provide dairy products within our snacks for the rest of the year a couple times a month. We also hope to have the opportunity to receive more funding so we can continue our healthy snack program again next year.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The teachers demonstrate to the students how to prepare and/or eat the healthy foods the correct way. Teachers also work with students to learn about the healthy foods we are testing.
