Smoothie Samples
We were able to make smoothies during each of our lunches today to pass out to EVERY student. This was our VERY FIRST Fuel Up to Play 60 schoolwide event and it was quite a success! The club was able to work with our Family and Consumer Science department as well as our cafeteria staff to get some donations on the bananas and school milk that were put into the smoothies! The students had their choice from two different smoothies!! We also had teachers do some "bell ringers" asking their students if they knew of any fun facts about dairy or any recipes that they can include dairy in. Our principal also announced over the morning announcements and during each lunch announcement what today was and some facts about dairy nutrition! I cannot be more excited about the amount of support that we have received as a club from our entire school staff.

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

Our club hopes that we are able to do more samplings during lunch, showing students that there are a lot of different options for healthy foods!
