At Baker Middle School, we kicked off our Fuel Up to Play 60 program with the "Yogurt's Got Game" contest. Students worked in groups to come up with a healthy recipe featuring yogurt. Groups made their dairy dish, shared with the class why it was healthy, and had a taste test to see which recipes were the most satisfying. Since the contest was such a success, we decided to participate in the Recipe Contest Play throughout the remainder of the year. Students will now work in groups to create recipes every six weeks for each MyPlate food group; vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and proteins. At the end of the school year, we will compile the recipes from each winner into a “Rowdy Recipe” cook book to share with the school. Hopefully Rowdy and the Dallas Cowboys approve of our nutritious choices!
