Iowa Success Stories
Students at Van Buren Junior and Senior High School are not only making changes in their own eating habits, but are also educating the community and helping to make sporting events healthier activities.
Students and sports spectators at North Fayette Senior High School in West Union have gone bananas – not to mention strawberries and blueberries – for smoothies!
When the students of Central Springs School in Nora Springs, Iowa were asked what could be done to make their school a healthier place, the number one answer was to improve school lunches. That is what the Fuel Up To Play 60 student team and its program advisor, Karen Landers, set out to do. The team consulted the Fuel Up To Play 60 playbook, and came up with “Taste Test Thursdays.”
