To encourage children to increase the fruit and veggie intake every day…we demonstrated how to make a smoothie using spinach, bananas, strawberries and water. Over 400 smoothies were served and overall the children LOVED it! We partnered with the health unit to provide some additional education and excitement for the students.
Danielle Labonte and Nicole Thompson were the heroes who helped us earn this badge!!!
We were excited to join BrightBites when we learned about it!! We earned the First Bite badge just for joining!
On March 7th we had a WATER DAY! This was a celebration of our new water bottle filling station provided by the health unit. Students and staff enjoyed an infused water sampling station! 5 different kinds of fruit infused water were made available to over 570 staff and students. The importance of drinking water every day was emphasized and making the choice to drink water over other beverages was highlighted as well. A great day!
We run a nutrition program available to all students in the school. Students are able to access a healthy snack if they need one at any time of the day (e.g. yogurt, apples, oranges, cheese strings, granola bars). Children enjoy a healthy snack during the day when they need one! Healthy bodies = healthy minds.
