Riding Smooth

Felicity, OH- Students at Felicity-Franklin High School rode their way to fruit smoothies, as they learned how eating fruits and vegetables while using low-fat dairy products is a great way to meet their daily nutritional needs.  The smoothie bike was a great way for students to prepare smoothies for themselves while achieving physical activity requirements for a healthy lifestyle.
