We reached our goal by having our team come up with healthy eating goals for every month and a matching activity. Then we would have our team in the cafeteria every Friday promoting healthy eating and our Fuel Up goal for that month. We passed out prizes and encouraged the kids. We also went out on the playground during recess and helped kids to start up games focused on our activity for that month. We met every Monday to decide other ways to support a healthy school and made posters to hang up. We also held a healthy bake sale to raise funds to support the program.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We worked closely with adults to meet our goals. Our Program Advisor met with us every Monday and the principal helped us on Fridays to promote our monthly goals. We also worked with parents and teachers to promote healthy choices in the classrooms for snacks and parties.
