Schedule switch, smoothies boost breakfast participation
Breakfast participation at Warhill High School in Williamsburg, Va., has increased due to a change in the class schedule and the addition of smoothies to its breakfast menu, The Virginia Gazette reports.
The high school’s principal moved an afternoon flex block to the start of the day, allowing students a full 55-minute period to grab food before class. Before the change, students had just 15 minutes to eat breakfast. The foodservice team also introduced smoothies to the menu at the same time.
Before the changes, the school served breakfast to an average of 75 to 80 students daily. Now, it serves around 200.
Along with smoothies, the school also serves items such as coffee, pancakes, French toast and cereal.
