More Healthy Options for Breakfast at PLMS
- Lori Danella, Pleasant Lea Middle School
- Breakfast – Grab and Go!
- Access to Healthy Foods
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!!
