Fuel Up with Dairy

Our school offers the free meal program to all students. My KSHAC students saw that there were a lot of students who would throw away their milk every morning. After we had just done a lesson on all the health benefits of milk they decided that they would do a promotional campaign for the enjoyment of dairy products in school. They created posters and went around to tell everyone about all the health benefits of dairy products. 

They also went around to all the tables to get kids to sign the Fuel Up to Play 60 pledge and share information on the benefits of living an active life. There were quite a few students who returned to get a milk after the students were finished. That gave my students a huge sense of excitement knowing they made a difference.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Looks like less milk is being discarded in the meals on campus.
