Start the week off with a healthy snack

040913 Fruit bowl for teachers WEB

Getting the recommended 5-7 servings (at least!) can seem daunting.  If we incorporate fruits & vegetables into our snacks in addition to our meals, we contribute to our daily total. 

These are the nutrient powerhouses of our diets, providing energy, fiber, and lots of vitamins and minerals. Snack options include an apple with a handful of almonds, string cheese and an orange, vegetables with hummus, cucumbers and cottage cheese, and berries with yogurt​.

So although Principal Waddell is encouraging her teachers to start the week of right, we should all take those words to heart and include a fruit or vegetable into our daily snacks.
