Summit Pointe Dairy Taste Testing

We felt it was important this year to educate our students about the origins of our food supply. The first section is Dairy. Stacey, our manager, went to the PE classes and provided smoothie samples. She talked to students about dairy cows and how we get our milk and yogurt, which were both in the smoothies. She also explained that you can add different items such as fruits and veggies or even grains/seeds to make them more healthy. She had recipe flyers for them to take home and try to make smoothies for themselves.

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

We will continue to taste test throughout the year and try all different kinds of fruits, veggies, dairy, grains, etc. After funding is gone we will work with our vendors and local farmers to continue to get foods to taste test and educate the students about them.
