NutriBullet University: a healthy eating initiative for students #NutriBulletUNI
For many who want to live a healthy lifestyle, it's not easy. Being healthy takes time! And if your a young student you really don't have a lot of time in between classes and studying.
But the team behind NutriBullet wanted to make it easier for students (and by extension non students) to be healthy with the launch of NutriBullet University, a pilot program (in 2013) at University High School in Los Angeles.
In NutriBullet University, they donated NutriBullets and a grant to provide fresh produce for the students to make a NutriBlast each school day for 90 days. They ran health assessments on the students both before and after the program, and the results were remarkable.
Students lowered their cholesterol levels; trimmed, on average, one inch from their waistlines; and reported having more energy at school.
This spring, three more schools enrolled in NutriBullet University. Seward Middle School in Seward, Alaska; El Verano Elementary in Sonoma, California; and River Road High School in Amarillo, Texas launched 90-day programs, with NutriBullet providing everything the students needed to make a tasty, nutritious smoothie each school day.
Each month of the program, the recipes changed to ramp up the vegetables included in the daily NutriBlasts. The students gradually got used to healthier smoothies, packed with green veggies.
When the three programs wrapped up in May, the results were as impressive as the pilot program’s:
This fall, additional NutriBullet University programs will launch at schools in Lecanto, Florida and Los Angeles, and NutriBullet will open up the application process for additional schools to join NutriBullet University in 2016.

You can also follow the program on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
