Potowmack Team Nutrition
The FUTP 60 team met and created posters promoting dairy and eating a variety of foods from all food groups. They then got involved with our counties, "Tastful Thursday", which tries a new food once a month. The team promoted it on the news show and then helped out with the serving of the food.  The team also had a Super Bowl get-to-know other team members and played an activity called Food Group Extinction, in which they used the Flag Football belts. They will also teach this activity to their classmates.

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

The team will research, promote, and help serve the Tasteful Thursday food for the month. They will also teach the Food Group Extinction game to their peers.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Everyone was great.
