NutriBullet – You’re Invited!

You’re invited to join our St. Cyprian Junior High students for our kickoff party and a hands-on education and healthy eating experience on January 25th between 8:15 and 11:00 A.M.

At the beginning of the school year, the 8th grade class created a fabulous video and applied for a prestigious program through NutriBullet University. We are excited to announce that we were chosen from hundreds of applicants throughout the country 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! This program is 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 goal of the program is to develop healthy habits that will stay with the children for years to come.

Please feel free to check out the school website, www.stcyps.org, or our Facebook page for more information!
