The Portable Breakfast Bar
- Jerlyn Hohnholt, Maxwell School
- Student Leadership
Our Food Science students researched recipes that could be eaten in the classroom. The items had to be similar to what could be served as a hot breakfast food, yet something that did not require a lot of utensils. They visited with the school administration and teachers, and determined that many of our kids do not eat the morning breakfast at school because they are not really hungry. They are, however, hungry later in the morning, usually around 9-10 a.m. We surveyed the students and discovered that they would definitely eat if food was available later in the day. We prepared some healthy whole grain, dairy, fruit, and vegetable items that we knew could be prepared and delivered during the time that we were in class. We delivered samples to our students and staffand it was a hit! We went on to write a mini grant for Fuel Up to Play 60 so that we could look at doing this full time!
