Learning does not end when school lets out. Neither does the need for good nutrition.

Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. Continuing healthy eating habits is also important during the long, hot summer months. Eating nutritious foods helps ensure students retain their hard learned knowledge … and to help them to keep right on learning throughout the summer. For many of these children, summer vacation can bring the temptation of eating empty calorie snacks and foods that are high in sugar, fats, and sodium. For many others, summer exposes students to an increased risk of hunger and developmental decline. Make seasonal fruits and vegetables a high priority for your snacks, meals, and anytime.
Summertime is a time to play hard ... but it is also a time to remember to eat right. Make sure good nutrition remains a priority all summer long, and students will return to school in the fall healthy, sharp, and ready to learn.
