Hialeah Gardens Breakfast Smoothies
At Hialeah Gardens Middle School, we implemented Healthy Breakfast Smoothies for All! Pedaling away your own smoothie creation for breakfast became a fun and nutritious physical activity.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students and staff wanted to promote milk and yogurt products with fruits and vegetables. In order to have a healthy breakfast every Friday, the smoothie bike was setup outside for students and staff to make their own healthy creations.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students would bring milk and yogurt from the cafeteria along with fruit to ride the bicycle and blend their own smoothies. This became a Friday Smoothie Craze and all students and staff would setup to pedal away their healthy smoothie.

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

We will continue to use the smoothie bike and promote a healthy smoothie breakfast next school year and try to set it up more often then one day a week.
