Smoothies!

Access to Healthy Foods,  Community Involvement

Our building added smoothies to breakfast on Friday mornings. Our breakfast participation has more than tripled in number! Students love getting their smoothies on Fridays! During the week of the Library Book Fair, parents are invited to shop with their children and have breakfast, too. On those days we offered smoothies so that the parents and community members were able to enjoy them, too. We also plan to have smoothies on our Literacy Night for everyone attending. This has increased our breakfast participation AND student access to healthy foods.

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

Our cafeteria supports this activity 110%. They will continue to supply us with the foods required. The blenders purchased will last for years to come. The administration has agreed to supply funds for replacement parts if needed.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our breakfast participation has increased immensely. It has had an impact on student attitudes, too. They love coming to breakfast and head to class ready and excited for the day.
