The Avila students were given a lesson about dairy products and how it helps with bone growth, and how calcium also aids with strong bones such as teeth, blood clotting. For the past five months the student have been telling us when they have a chance to tell us what dairy products they have been eating and how many milks they drink a day. Every time we walk into the cafeteria the students all raise their milk carton to show us that they have finished all their milk, and it helps motivate other students to do the same as well. It is a great sight to see the support we have from the students and the motivation to continue to drink dairy products.
