Refueling with Milk

We used the grant money from the Midwest Dairy Council to refuel our Strength and Conditioning students with chocolate milk after a workout. This has been a huge success and benefit for our school. Our kids work hard and then energize themselves with a cold chocolate milk that helps their body recover from the workout and fuels them as they finish the rest of their academic day. It is amazing the benefits that this grant has provided our students.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our strength and conditioning students look forward to cold milk at the end of a workout. They feel the energy and recovery benefits the milk provides. This helps them complete the rest of their academic day.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our students, teachers, and administrators work together to ensure this program remains in place, as we all see the benefits. We work closely with the food service and custodial teams as well.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Teamwork, dairy farmers, Fuel Up to Play 60, and our school's dedication to providing our students with the best experience all helped us accomplish our goals.
