The Langford Area School implemented a yogurt bar offered two times per week starting in November 2018. The students got to choose a variety of toppings for their yogurt including granola, fresh fruits, and graham crackers. They really enjoyed having yogurt as an option and school staff found that many high school students chose to eat breakfast on days that the yogurt bar was offered.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our breakfast numbers increased 23% on days yogurt was offered.

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

The yogurt bar will continue to be offered twice weekly as an option for now, but in the future it might become an "everyday menu item."

How did you accomplish your goals?

With the help of student feedback, staff listened to the student's needs and what they would like to see as breakfast options. Yogurt was at the top of their list. The Fuel Up to Play 60 Program was instrumental in making the yogurt bar possible.
