Students love smoothies!

smoothiesSmoothies are a great way to encourage consumption of low-fat and fat-free dairy at school. Funding opportunities through Fuel Up to Play 60 are available thanks to the support of New England Dairy Farmers. Schools enrolled in Fuel Up to Play 60 can apply for up to $4,000 to fund equipment and other needs associated with starting a smoothie program at school. Visit our Fuel Up to Play 60 page to learn more about how to apply for these funds.

Contact your local Dairy Council Representative to request information.
