Promoting Smoothies as a Healthy Breakfast Option

FUTP 60 students at Valley City High School met at the beginning of the school year and put together a plan to have a healthy and delicious breakfast option once a month. They decided to serve various smoothie flavors throughout the school year along with a school breakfast option. The program is a success due to the Fuel Up to Play 60 program partnering with our school's food service directors.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

As a result of the smoothie program, we have been able to increase the numbers of students eating breakfast and have added several new members join our team due to its popularity.
