Did you know that wasted food costs a family of four up to $1,800 a year? Smoothies are a great way to use up that produce you might have in your kitchen! Blending your favorite fruits and vegetables with something creamy can help you access important nutrients and keep food out of the landfill.
The American Dairy Association Mideast and the Ohio and West Virginia Farm to School Networks invite you to participate in the Smoothie Slurp during the week of February 6th!
Participating in the “smoothie slurp” simply means making, serving, and slurping smoothies made with dairy foods blended with fruits for breakfast or lunch!
