Yogurt garnola parfaits with fruit

On Friday of National School Breakfast Week we put up posters about why to eat breakfast and grab and go breakfast ideas. Then we made youngster granola fruit parfaits that we called yogurt shooters and gave them out. We did a survey and only 1/3 of the student body had eaten breakfast that morning.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We used our grant to purchase the breakfast posters we put around school, we bought a bagel display case and basket for the Granville Middle School Breakfast program and we purchased food for the yogurt shooters and students put on the fruit of their choice. It was a big success and has increased breakfast eating at our school.

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

We talked about it and made a list of what we had to do and buy. We put up the posters a few days before and got our workers for the before school National Breakfast activity.

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