Healthier Choices at School

Topics:
Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement,  Teamwork

We have increased the breakfast and lunch programs by promoting on the television and in the cafeteria.

How did you accomplish your goals?

I started getting on the television in the mornings and making announcements. I would do samples and get staff and students to try. I would also go in the classroom with samples and talk about the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables.

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

Continue to advertise and promote fresh foods.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

My staff work hard to make sure everything is fresh and looks appealing. My participation has increased and students are excited to come to lunch.
