Snack-a-Pack Play

Summit Elementary School's Fuel Up to Play 60 school team wanted our students to bring healthier snacks to school. They implemented the Snack-a-Pack Play at school with posters, talking to students during class, and making healthy pumpkin smoothies for staff during a staff meeting. Healthy snack posters were distributed to grades 2-5 and students were given Snack-a-Pack cards to fill out when they brought a healthy snack to school. Cards were turned in to the FUTP 60 Program Advisor and students earned a "Healthy Snack" token to display on their backpacks or coats. Tokens included broccoli, cheese, milk, whole grain bread, fish, and oil. We have over 30% of the student population participating in the Snack-a-Pack Play. Our PTSO has become involved by providing healthier snacks for students in need.

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

The Snack-a-Pack Play will last until the last week of school. Students are responsible for filling out their cards, turning them in to the Program Advisor, and collecting their token from the clothesline in the gym. Students love getting the tokens and are trying to collect them all. The Fuel Up to Play 60 school team members revisited classes last week to encourage more students to participate in the program and answer any questions students may have about the program.
