What's in your drink?

I had a group of 5th grade girls research "re-think your drink" and make a poster. They displayed the poster at our morning meeting and talked about the negative health effects of too much sugar in your drink. They presented the information along with a PowerPoint. I have the poster displayed in the gym and we talk about healthy and un-healthy drink choices while waiting on their teachers to pick them up from PE.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids are more aware of their drink choices at lunch. Oftentimes students come up to me and tell me about the healthy drink choice that the made.

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

The chocolate milk in our cafeteria has a lot of sugar! I encourage the kids to drink whole milk and water at lunch instead!

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

Continue to discuss the topic of "Re-think your drink" throughout the school year.
