Pitcher's Powerful Smoothie Day
- Rebecca Purifoy, Pitcher Elementary School
- Plenty of Time...to Eat?
- Student Leadership
Pitcher's FUTP 60 Team decided on a Smoothie Day for our students. They even came up with a healthy smoothie recipe. Students wanted fruit smoothies but when my FUTP 60 coach suggested making it a HEALTHY smoothie, they ran with the idea! They added fresh spinach, vanilla yogurt, apple juice, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, and pineapple. We sat up a "Smoothie Bar" in the cafeteria with the help of our cafeteria manager and the school district's food service dietitian. We had three blenders and the FUTP 60 Team went to work! Students enjoyed taste testing the smoothies and the district's dietitian took note as to how successful we were!
