The National Diary Council has awarded Hallsville Elementary School with the "Fuel Up to Play 60" grant. The grant's purpose is to promote physical activity and healthy eating among students and families.
A portion of Hallsville's funding was used to purchase blenders! In February, each grade level had the opportunity to try different flavored smoothies in a school-wide taste test and complete a short survey developed by the Hallsville School Wellness Committee. The survey revealed that students wanted strawberry banana smoothies as part of the school's daily breakfast program.
A special thanks to MSD food service director, Mr. Connors, and dietician, Ms. Sheehy, for assisting with with the school-wide taste test.
