Healthy Cooking Challenge, Breakfast Edition!

Our school invests in a week-long emphasis on wellness each year, called Live Life Well Week. We plan all kinds of activities and events, including speakers, tournaments, a chance for students to try different fitness classes, and healthy eating promotions. This year, we combined our Healthy Breakfast with our Healthy Cooking Challenge. Students in our Nutrition and Fitness classes created their own healthy recipes using the MyPlate Guidelines. After an initial round of judging, our finalist recipes were made for our whole student body to sample and vote on! It was a great event that highlighted the importance of eating breakfast, as well as giving our students and staff a few new recipes to try!
