North Greenville Elementary students are getting the opportunity to try new healthy recipes at lunch with the Smoothies at Lunch program. Student leaders of the FUTP 60 program are helping choose recipes and distribute samples at lunch as a way to get students to try new foods they might not try otherwise. An example of a recent recipe was Blueberry Spinach Smoothies. These healthy treats included blueberries, spinach, strawberries, bananas, yogurt, and low-fat dairy milk. Students also got to take home recipe cards to share with their families. The FUTP 60 team hopes students can begin to promote these healthy recipes at home as well.
