Dairy on the GEAUX!
Valverda Elementary chose to spend its grant money on smarter snacking in school. We purchased equipment to hold our dairy products to increase dairy consumption during our snack time during school! Our students have the opportunity to purchase dairy items on our Snack Cart on the Geaux! We have estimated that 200+ students are purchasing dairy products weekly! This excites our Teacher Ambassadors that our students are choosing to be healthy and eat a healthy snack!

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

Our Ambassadors, faculty, and staff are choosing to continue the Dairy on the Geaux! Snack Cart throughout the school year because we are so excited to see our students choosing to be healthy and increase their dairy consumption during their snack time!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen an improvement in students' dairy consumption and their excitement to become more healthy, active, and aware of what they are choosing to snack on!

How did you accomplish your goals?

My goal was to increase student interest in dairy products. We definitely succeeded in this process reaching our goal and beyond. I am so proud of our students and school for achieving this goal of increasing dairy and all around becoming a healthy school for our students!
