Westridge Making the Case
- Kathy Burney, Westridge Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Our team planned an all-school assembly focusing on healthy breakfast. Within our school we have "Family Circles" where each adult has a group of approximately 10 students. We started the Family Circle as a large group and the team of students shared information on why breakfast is so important. Then each Family Circle took time to discuss what makes up a healthy breakfast. They also compared what they were eating at home with what the school breakfast served. We pointed out the school breakfast had all the needed items for a healthy breakfast. Overall this event was very successful as many kids and teachers are now discussing healthy breakfasts.
