A Delicious Day with a Smoothie Breakfast
Once Lake Hazel Elementary received the Waring XTreme Hi-Power Blender from Fuel Up To Play 60 for completing Farm to School, in addition to a virtual field trip to a dairy for our students , the staff put the blender to work immediately. Starting in January, the kitchen staff started offering fresh smoothies to the students for breakfast. The smoothies came in blueberry and strawberry flavors, and the kids have loved them so much they will be adding another flavor soon! The average number of students having breakfast at school before the appearance of the smoothies was 30, while now an average of 75 students enjoy a smoothie during breakfast at school. Thanks to FUTP 60 for making a healthy breakfast so popular!!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Starting in January, the kitchen staff started offering fresh smoothies at breakfast to help increase the number of students eating.

How did you accomplish your goals?

When we received the funds from FTUP 60, we purchased the Waring XTreme Hi-Power Blender. We were trying to increase the number of students eating breakfast at Lake Hazel Elementary.
