Smoothies are a hit at COS
With our funding, we are now able to offer smoothies to students for breakfast, and on special occasions, for lunch as part of the meal. Students are super excited and more students are jumping in the breakfast line! This has been a huge success and will continue, thanks to our nutrition staff. Student leaders have also been able to help prepare the smoothies on special occasions, taking leadership to another level.

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

With the addition of the smoothie blender, smoothies will be offered on a regular basis during the school week. Our team has surveyed the students and determined what they would like to try, so we will offer some of the requested recipes throughout the year. Our intent is to improve breakfast participation, getting more students to begin their day with the fuel they need.
