My kids love getting the hot meals each day.  I called JCC to get the recipes for some of their favorites.  It’s nice to know they are eating food that is good for them.

Does it really matter what your child is eating?

There are benefits to good nutrition.  Kids who eat better do better in school because they are able to learn better.  https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0047272700001183

 

Children who eat more fruits and vegetables as kids grow into adults who eat more fruits and vegetables.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5622750/

 

Instead of making food decisions for them we need to teach them how to make smart choices on their own.  https://www.kitchngiggles.com/does-childhood-nutrition-even-matter/

We would like to thank Monmouth Park District, Monmouth-Roseville School District, and Lincoln Homes for their cooperation, contributions, and participation in Summer Meals.
