Quindro Smoothie Challenge
- Bryan Nelson, Quindaro Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership, Teamwork
My 5th grade team and I recently decided to use some available money from our school to purchase a couple blenders and some fruit and vegetables. Our goal is to make different kinds of smoothies that are both available to students and staff during lunch. The plan is to start with our last lunch period with grades 2 & 5. If all goes well, we are going to expand the offering to the other two lunch periods as well. Our school already has a vegetable program, which our kitchen staff utilizes every Thursday afternoon. Every student, allergy forbidding, gets to try a new and exotic vegetable. Fruits come with that every now and then.
