How to Start your Day at the Kitchen Table
My team has made a strong push to put this Play in action. My team has been passing out "My Plate" templates to their classmates so they know what foods groups should be on their plate for every meal. This play is focusing on the most important meal of the day, and that's breakfast. The "My Plate" template is broken down into dairy, vegetables, protein, grains, and fruit. These food groups are essential for every meal but especially for breakfast. Dairy to build strong bones, fruits and vegetables for proper vitamins (ABCD), protein to build muscle, and grains for carbohydrates so our bodies get the energy they need to last during the day. Our team has made a push on this play to recruit more players for our team by passing out FUTPn60 flyers and also "My Plate" templates. Our main goal is to get others to understand that having those five things for every meal is important so that our body naturally receives the nutrients it needs.

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

This Play will last the entire school year and on because its a daily goal. The "My Plate" template is essential for all meals of the day, but most important for breakfast.
