The Flavor Bible
The entire student body at Holy Family School in Brillion, Wisconsin participated in many activities, per Fuel Up To Play 60. The main curriculum has been from the USDA. We have established a Walking Club, monitored food waste in the cafeteria, and taught units on nutrition at all grade levels. Probably the biggest success story in our quest for wellness was to put a cookbook together entitled "The Flavor Bible". Students and parents in the first through third grade health class compiled recipes that included all of the major food groups. The recipes ranged from appetizers to main entrees to dessert items. The recipes were compiled and put into a cookbook that the students and parents received. The project truly lived out our Mission as Holy Family School!.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Parents and students collaborated on a nutrition assignment compiling the recipes for The Flavor Bible. This was completed over a two week period with the communication to parents on an app entitled remind.com

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students have a thorough understanding of nutrition as they had to apply the major food groups to the recipes ranging from appetizers to main entrees to dessert items.

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

The biggest challenge was to allow enough time to complete the task. The students have health class only one time per week, so compiling the recipes, typing and putting pictures on the data and returning the assignments to me were big obstacles. With the emphatic support of everyone in the school grade community, we overcame the obstacles.
