As of this month, the student leadership team at Jean Vanier Catholic High School in Collingwood will be bringing a healthy smoothie bar on Tuesdays and Thursdays mornings to the student body.
In light of the line “new year, new me”, the goal is to offer a healthy new alternative for students with a variety of smoothies. As a part of the Healthy Food for Healthy Schools initiative, Student Leadership will be running the “Storm Smoothie Bar in the mornings to encourage students to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
The school already runs a Healthy Breakfast program so that students can start their day with a nutritious meal. The addition of the smoothie bar will further improve the program in place, and increase the number of students getting a well-rounded breakfast daily.
Each Tuesday and Thursday, the smoothie bar will be producing a collection of citrus, assorted berries, and green power smoothies. Each smoothie will help students get at least two of the five servings of fruits or vegetable a day, plus energy for the long, studious day ahead.
