Newport News Receives Smoothie Training

Newport News Public Schools Child Nutrition Services met with The Dairy Alliance's Roseann Liberatore to train on equipment for their Smooth and Smart program. Smooth and Smart, a grant program established in association with Fuel Up to Play 60, helps acquire industrial blenders and other equipment to integrate yogurt and fruit smoothies into school meals in an effort to increase overall dairy consumption amongst children. In addition to the grant, staff tasted different dairy-filled recipes and received smoothie inspiration resources from The Dairy Alliance to incorporate into the school system's program.
