Started Smoothie Program at Iola Sr High School
For a long time, our students have been asking for smoothies as a breakfast option, but we just could not accommodate the request...until this grant opportunity. While we have not seen any growth in our ADP, our students have repeatedly expressed their appreciation that we have listened to their requests and concerns.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Initially we sampled, trying to find flavors that were going to be favorites, but we did not get a lot of feedback. Now that the program is up and running full tilt, our students communicate regularly with regard to which smoothies they like and which smoothies they dislike.
