Smoothies for the Most Important Meal of the Day
Fuel Up to Play 60 has paired up with the American Dairy Association Mideast to provide $11,600 to Wheelersburg Elementary, Middle and High School in order to provide a smoothie machine, walking trail and outdoor exercise equipment which can be used to motivate students to increase their physical activity and breakfast consumption. Each student has access to a free breakfast meal which consists of 1 fresh smoothie made with fruit, milk and yogurt and one whole grain item.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The adults had a smoothie taste testing with a few students so they could taste 3 flavors then voted on their favorite. After the testing, it was decided that the favorite flavor was Strawberry-Blueberry, which will be served at the ribbon cutting event.
