After School Smooth & Smart Lesson

The Dairy Alliance staffer, Alan Curtsinger, presented with Stacy Hammer, Barren County Nutrition Liaison, a smoothie making demonstration at North Jackson Elementary. The presentation was a part of an after-school program focused on exploring different career paths. The students enjoyed several smoothie samples made with various combinations of strawberries, bananas, white milk, vanilla milk, and strawberry yogurt. The students took home a copy of the smoothie recipe, along with other dairy promotional items. After seeing the positive reaction to the smoothies from students, Barren County School district is looking into adding smoothies to the menu at multiple schools.
