Food of the Month ​

Each month, Department of Juvenile Services Director of Food and Nutrition Patricia Faught and her staff develop a Food of the Month theme for Juvenile Services food managers in the facility cafeterias. The purpose of the Food of the Month is to promote nutrition within department youths' diet. This food item is chosen based on consideration of and correlation to the traditions of different ethnic Heritage Months.

March Food of the Month - Broccoli​

Collard Greens 

The Dietary Guidelines provide a clear path to help Americans eat healthfully, informed by a critical review of the scientific evidence on nutrition. Healthy eating is one of the most powerful tools we have to reduce the onset of disease. The Dietary Guidelines recommendations can help you make informed choices about eating for you and your family. A healthy eating pattern includes a variety of vegetables: dark green, red and orange, legumes (beans and peas), starchy, and other vegetables. One dark green vegetable to include in your diet this month is broccoli. Broccoli is packed with nutrients, including calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and fiber.

The month of March is also celebrated as a National Nutrition Month®. Please visit the website link below for more information.
