Thanks to Fuel Up to Play 60 funding we have been able to increase the number of 4/5 grade students eating breakfast at school. In the past three years, we have used the funding to get an outdoor breakfast area near the upper-grade wing of our school. This year we have added serving tables and a hand washing station so that we can implement a fruit taste test and smoothie bar. Students have been introduced to star fruit and kiwi and created smoothies that included cucumber, banana, coconut water, yogurt, and strawberries. The students are looking forward to our next taste test day.
