Healthy bodies and healthy minds go hand-in-hand in stemming summer learning loss. Summer is the perfect time to get on our feet and get moving. It’s also an opportunity to savor the flavors of seasonal fruits and vegetables to avoid summer weight. Without the structure and resources that the school year offers, children are at greater risk for weight gain and unhealthy eating habits during the summer months. And because hunger takes no vacation, be sure to check out free summer meal programs in our community, including free and fun wellness programs, tips, food resources, and activities to help you grow strong and win at wellness!
