Breakfast Buddies Combine Healthy Eating with Brain Food

During the months of April and May I ran a “breakfast buddies club” at 7:15 am.  Each morning a group of students would meet and create healthy smoothies to start their day.  They would also read the Wall Street Journal, which our school subscribed to.  A special thank you goes to Amie Hamlin, director of the Coalition for Healthy School Food, which helped us get a Vitamix blender to create the smoothies!!!  I received a service learning grant to create the Breakfast Buddies program.   Students learned  how to eat healthier and at the same time observe how eating a healthy breakfast impacted their mood, energy and grades.  I collaborated with the health teachers and trained students how to research.
