Fuel Your Good Equals Out of this World Breakfast
We decided to Highlight Healthy Food during breakfast. We had a space themed menu for breakfast each day. On Friday we celebrated by having Star-berry Smoothies served after breakfast (with the help of our smoothie bike and some strong students).

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The SWAT, SHAC and food service department all worked together. The SWAT helped choose the items for the smoothie, the SHAC helped get all the materials prepared and got the word out and the district food service department got all the themed menus printed as well as brought in interns to help with the smoothie bike.

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

After the event the principal, SHAC members and the district food service department met up to see how this could be extended. We talked about a breakfast in the classroom program for this year as well as a fruit/ veggie grant.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our students are now very open to trying new fruits and veggies. The smoothie we highlighted was a strawberry-mango smoothie. We hope to implement breakfast in the classroom so students will have more opportunities like this to try new fruits/ veggies.
