In celebration of National Breakfast Week, Jamba Juice partnered with Team Up for a Healthy America, the GENYOUth Foundation and the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) to sponsor the “Team Up for a Healthy Breakfast” Challenge. The first few days of the challenge are already proving to be successful, with breakfast participation up by 70 percent in both schools.

The breakfast competition between Pasadena High School and Marshall Fundamental School was designed to increase the number of students who consume breakfast on a daily basis and to educate them about the benefits of eating the most important meal of the day. From March 4 to March 22, the two schools will compete to see which school can drive the highest rate of breakfast consumption, and the winning school will receive a Physical Activity Ring from GENYOUth.

Jon Gundry, Superintendent of the PUSD, and Tom Madsen, JambaGO Senior Vice President, officially kicked off the Healthy Breakfast Challenge bright and early on Thursday morning at Pasadena High School. Students were told that they are the first in the nation to start this unique challenge and that they may see it adopted in other cities and states as well. Pasadena High’s ASB Communications Director, Alec Brierty, and Marshall Fundamental High’s ASB President, Jackie Torres, rallied their peers to participate in the competition, and of course, Banana Man was also present to cheer on the two schools.
