Smoothie Tuesdays at River View
River View Middle School in Kaukauna has started a bi-monthly snack station called "Smoothie Tuesday's" that happens every other Tuesday of the month. FUTP 60 Team members have chosen a color of the month and dedicated our smoothies to those colors. Students are in charge of preparing and selling the smoothies after school. In our 4th month of doing this, we have sold over 1,000 smoothies to students and they have enjoyed the healthy snack option after school instead of unhealthy processed vending machine food. Our FUTP 60 team has worked hard using many different ingredients to make the smoothies appealing and nutritious for students. Some of the ingredients we've used are; strawberries, blueberries, carrots, 100% fruit juice, milk, vanilla yogurt, pumpkin, and much more. The FUTP 60 Team members work together to gather the ingredients, use the blender to create, serve, and clean the station each Tuesday.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students run downstairs after school to be the first in line to buy a smoothie. They are excited for the healthy snack and look forward to Smoothie Tuesdays!
