More Healthy Options for Breakfast at PLMS

This was a year of change for this middle school. We acquired a new manager and several new cafeteria staff members. One of the goals was to increase breakfast participation by offering a larger variety of healthy options. We even moved our Grab & Go location and spruced up our equipment and offering. It took a little creativity and merchandising, but we got it done. We are now offering yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit bowls and even salads. Middle school students have different tastes and we followed their requests. Our participation has steadily increased so we know we are successful!!

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

We have got our set up to where the flow is good in the morning and the students can get through quick so we will leave that the same. All the items we are offering meet regulations so we will continue to offer the items the students like and have requested. We will add different fruits as they are in season. The old saying, if it works, why change it? That's our motto since we have seen success.
