Summer Food Rocks

As the school year comes to an end, the summer fun is about to begin! Join Fairfax County Food and Nutrition Services all summer long for the free barbeque program, or F.E.E.D.S (Food for Every Child to Eat During Summer). The program begins on June 26 and ends August 25. This USDA-funded program is free for all children 18 years and under and only $2 for adult. Some sites will also offer crafts, games, and other activities. For additional information please To find your closest summer meal site, text FOOD or COMIDA (for Spanish) to 877-877.

Food and Nutrition Services is dedicated to ensuring all children are healthy and happy all year long. During the summer months, children are more likely to adopt unhealthful behaviors. Only 1 in 4 kids ages 6-15 get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day, while spending an average of almost eight hours a day in front of a screen. Help your children to have a healthy summer break by encouraging them to play for at least one hour - whether running, dancing, playing tag, or jumping
rope, all physical activity counts. Try to limit screen time in front of the television, computer, tablet, or video games to no more than two hours a day.

You can also help your children to eat and drink smart to play hard. Choose low-fat milk or water instead of sugary beverages like soda, fruit-flavored drinks, lemonade, and sports drinks. Try adding flavor and fun to water by adding sliced fruit or by choosing sparkling water to add carbonation to beverages without the added sugar. To help kids reach for healthier snacks, offer fruits, vegetables, nuts and nut butters, low-fat dairy products, or whole grain crackers and pretzels.

Help your kids have a healthy summer to ensure they are fueled and ready for the next school year. We look forward to serving the Fairfax County community all summer and into the fall, as we continue to grow in our school food initiatives, including new salad bars in elementary schools, outdoor barbecues, increased after-school Super Snack programs, and more.  You can stay up-to-date with all of our food and nutrition programs by following us on Twitter
