HELPFUL NUTRITIONAL INFO

VARY YOUR FAMILY'S
PROTEIN ROUTINE!

Most people 9 years and older need 5-7 ounces of protein a day. Choose seafood twice a week; have an egg; try beans and peas or soy products; choose unsalted nuts and seeds for a healthy snack.

STAY HYDRATED

Being well-hydrated is essential for good health. Consuming water is necessary to keep the body functioning properly. Increase fluid intake to counteract warmer temperatures and higher humidity.

BLESS YOUR HEART WITH RED FOODS

Red fruits and vegetables contain many health-promoting phytochemicals, including lycopene and anthocyanins, which help promote: a lower risk of some cancers, a healthy heart, memory health, and urinary tract health.

Try these: Tomato, Red Pepper, Red Onion, Beets, Red Cabbage, Kidney Beans, Apples, Grapefruit, Grapes, Strawberries, Cherries, Raspberries, Cranberries, Pomegranate

PARENTS SET THE BEST EXAMPLES

Choose nutritious snacks and your children likely will! Try offering raw veggies and dip or a healthy green smoothie for an after school snack. Did you know kids need approximately 2 cups of vegetables a day?

CHOOSING THE RIGHT AFTER SCHOOL SNACK

Cashews, almonds, walnuts, pecans, and peanuts have heart healthy oil. They make a great after school snack!  One ounce of nuts is equal to one serving
of meat.
