Look who was drinking Fat Free Milk
Our health theme was "drink fat free milk - it's good for you!" Students learned about the health benefits of drinking milk, and that while fat free milk and whole milk have the same nutrients, whole milk has too much fat for elementary aged children. We created a bulletin board with the title "Look who was caught drinking fat-free milk" and posted a pictures of us (me and my co-teacher) drinking our milk. We encouraged students to try fat-free milk and to send us or tag us with a picture on facebook. Our wall quickly filled up with the sweet faces of our kiddos trying fat free milk!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We demonstrated how to do it, and led by example. Students then followed.

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

Every May, our health theme is Milk, so this will be an easy thing to do each year.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

More students are choosing and then drinking their 2% milk at school.
