Project Update: Athletes Take New Approach to Nutrition

Hannah, a junior from Middletown, PA, and an FCCLA member who received a $1000 grant from AdVenture Capital as part of last semester’s “FCCLA Online Challenge,” shared this update with us as she works on her Project this semester – check out this photo of her presenting to her peers to help design and implement her Project!

Hannah’s Project, “Athletes Take New Approach at Nutrition,” is a program focused on creating and sharing nutritional monthly meal plans with busy teenagers based on foods readily available to them. In her original Adventure Capital Project Design, idea, Hannah wrote, “The problem that my collaborative partner and I would like to solve is getting teens to make healthy food choices. Many teenagers do not make healthy food choices because the food that supports their nutritional needs, are not appealing to them. People who are the most impacted are the people who are not fully educated on what nutrients their body needs. Many people also do not understand where they can access healthy food that they would enjoy.”

So far, Hannah has met with her team participating in the project and discussed nutritional and physical activity goals. They’ve designed a month-long nutritional plan and the next step is to order equipment/blenders to help make nutritious smoothies to help everyone get fueled up and ready to go each day. Hannah also shared that part of the challenge is understanding funding guidelines and requirements, but she recommends to AdCap entrepreneurs to read materials several times and ask questions if needed!

Thanks for sharing this photo and update, Hannah! We’re looking forward to hearing more from you and your FCCLA chapter!
