March is National Reading Month and National Nutrition Month so many schools kicked off the month bringing in celebrities for story time.

Michelle Oliver got a chance to chat with Justin Abdelkader from the Detroit Red Wings, and Briana Banka‚ the Youth Wellness Manager from Milk Means More, about the importance of fueling children’s minds with healthy foods such as dairy.

Abdelkader wrote a book called “Shoot For The Goal” to share his story of becoming a Detroit Red Wing. He hopes his story encourages kids to do well in school, dream big, and eat healthy.
