Happy September! Check out some of the Foundation Friday finds we've discovered this week---back-to-school edition!
Fit Friday: The Pottstown Mercury's Fit for Life initiative, brought to you by the Foundation, is a must read and follow! Look out for its Fit Friday section in the Mercury every Friday which includes great health and wellness information, fitness tips and community happenings! This week, read these tips on the nutritional needs of students from preschool to college.
Lunch tips: Now that school is back in session, kids won't be able to mindlessly snack throughout the day like they may have done during the summer. You can help your kids make healthier choices when it comes to the food they choose. Check out myplate.gov and Produce for Kids for healthy but delicious food ideas!
Bedtime: The summer routines of staying up late and sleeping in till noon are long gone! Help your kids get back into a school-night sleep schedule with these tips from the National Sleep Foundation. They'll be catching Zzzs in no time!
Wishing you all a safe and healthy Labor Day weekend!
