Our school received a Fuel Up to Play 60 Grant. We started the new year with a new breakfast menu choice: Smoothies! The taste-testing activities were a huge success and the students love the Smoothies.

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

With our new Vitamix blender, we will continue to offer Smoothies as a menu item for months to come.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have more students eating breakfast, as this new menu choice that is easy to grab and go, has generated excitement.

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

Time is always a concern when finding the labor to do one more preparation. We will work through this barrier to serve nutritious choices for our students and increase participation in school breakfast.
