Godwin Heights — What do you have if you mix one cup of unsweetened applesauce, one cup of apple juice, and 16 ounces of strawberry yogurt?
Well, according to the Team 21 students at West Godwin, a delicious, healthy treat.
“I would say it is a 10 out of 10,” said second-grader CeCe. “No, wait. Make that a 100 out of a 100.”
The group of 25 students helped Godwin Heights Food Director Jamie Schumaker make the blenderless smoothies, which is part of Chartwells’ Discovery Kitchen, a program designed to help students explore healthy food options. Chartwells provides food service to the district.
Students handed Schumaker the ingredients as she talked about the smoothies and how they are made. Afterwards, everyone was able to taste what they had created.
“It is an opportunity to help educate the students about healthy snacks and food options,” Schumaker said, adding she plans to present a monthly healthy food program. “This one helps them power up with a healthy beverage that has protein and fruit.”
Second-grader Hayden summed up everyone’s opinion of the treat with two words: “It’s good.”
