Raising the Bar with Baked Potatoes at Bernard Campbell Middle School

We purchased all the items we needed to be able to serve "Bar" items. The first one the students wanted us to menu was a potato bar. We put up all the nutritional information on baked potatoes and even presented information on how baked potatoes can help athletes that suffer from muscle cramps. We put out a variety of toppings ranging from protein rich to all kinds of fresh veggies and lowfat dips. Instead of using ranch dressing we made a homemade ranch from yogurt. The kids loved it and are anxious to see what the next bar is. They told us we definitely "Raised the Bar."

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

We have all the items now to set up our "bars" so we will continue to come up with different themes and also use it to offer fresh salad items daily.
