Eat Healthy This Summer!
The kids are out of school, the ice cream truck is making its rounds, and it is the season for vacations and barbecues. Healthy eating can be difficult during the summertime. What can you do to boost your nutrition this summer season? Here are some tips:
  • Opt for a whole grain bun with your burger or hot dog, instead of refined white bread.
  • Stock up on vegetables. Wash and cut them and store at eye level in the fridge, so your hungry kids will be more likely to choose them for a snack.
  • Don’t forget your fruits! Berries are in season during the summer months, making them a cost-effective and healthy summer snack.
  • Hydration is always important, but it is especially crucial in the summer heat. Carry a water bottle with you to stay hydrated.
  • Freeze some ripe bananas and blend to make “Nice-cream.” It’s a nutritious, delicious, low fat alternative to traditional ice cream. 
  • Eating out on vacation? Choose baked or grilled instead of fried, a vegetable side in lieu of fries, and ask for sauces and dressings on the side. Order water with your meal instead of soda or other sweetened beverages.
Did you know your kids can get a healthy breakfast and lunch at school during the summer months? Free meals will be provided to children up to age 18 who are attending summer school, and to children not attending summer school who live in the surrounding communities. A sample meal would include a sub, baby carrots and broccoli with dip, a fresh nectarine and milk.

Below are school sites and dates for the USDA Summer Food Service Program as of 5/20/16. Come join us for breakfast and lunch! Call 703.791.7314 or visit www.pwcsnutrition.com for the most up to date service times.
