At the beginning of the school year, Mrs. Kmiecik and the 8th grade class created a fabulous video and applied for a prestigious program through NutriBullet University. We are excited to announce that St. Cyprian was chosen from hundreds of applicants to participate in this program.
Beginning January 25th, St. Cyprian’s 5th-8th grade students will be part of Nutribullet University’s 90-day healthy eating program, valued at $15,000 and designed to help children improve their diets by increasing their daily intake of vegetables and fruits. Each day, the students will make their own NutriBlast fruit and vegetable smoothies. They will be educated on the health benefits of each ingredient and learn how their food choices directly affect their mood, energy, and overall well being. The children will receive wellness screenings, conducted by healthcare professionals, at the beginning and end of the program to measure its effectiveness. The goal of the program is to develop healthy habits that will stay with the children for years to come.
NutriBullet University provides St. Cyprian School with all of the resources needed to make this program successful, including 35 NutriBullet nutrient extractors, visits from nutritionists and healthcare professionals, funds to purchase all fruits and vegetables needed for the smoothies, educational materials, and sweatshirts for all participants. At the conclusion of the program, the students will invite parents and members of the community to a Blaster Party to teach about what they have learned and share their success stories.
