This past school year, Leaphart Elementary received Fuel Up to Play 60 funding and a NFL Hometown Grant. With both grants, the school was able to place focus on healthy eating behaviors and nutrition education.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Leaphart Elementary acted on two Healthy Eating Plays last school year. We implemented Breakfast in the Classroom and Promoting Healthful Choices. Breakfast in the Classroom was a specific goal of the district's Office of Student Nutrition. To propose Breakfast, the Director of Student Nutrition suggested piloting the program in one grade. This made all the difference. It was much easier to gain support from teachers, administrators and Student Nutrition staff by starting small. Next school year, they will add more grade levels and classrooms. For the second Play, Promoting Healthful Choices, the Office of Student Nutrition contacted local community partner Clemson Extension. Clemson Extension proved to be very valuable because of their existing nutrition education series. All we had to do was tailor their curriculum to the specific needs of Leaphart third, fourth and fifth grade students. Students learned about low-fat and fat-free dairy and healthy beverage options, fruits and vegetables and MyPlate, and how to make better fast food choices. They thoroughly enjoyed the nutrition series and we would like to continue with lessons next school year.
