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.
