Food of the Month ​

The Department of Juvenile Services' Food and Nutritional Services team assist in learning about nutrition through various traditions such as posters, monthly food menu choices, and other fun activities. We incorporate menu selections and food choices into holidays, celebrations, and special occasions, such as National School Breakfast Week, National School Lunch Week, and National Nutrition Month. Each month, the program focus on a Food of the Month to serve in the department's residential facility cafeterias. The purpose of the Food of the Month promotion is to highlight the nutritional benefits of healthy eating, wellness, and making health conscious food choices in an adolescent's diet. This food item is chosen based on consideration of the diverse ethnicities, cultures, and the correlation to the traditions of various backgrounds.

January's Food of the Month is Oatmeal!

Foods that contain fiber, such as whole grains, may reduce the risk of many diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Consuming whole grains may also aid in weight management.

Oatmeal is a delicious and easy way to get some of your whole-grains and other important nutrients. Oats contain beta-glucan, a type of fiber that's been shown to help lower cholesterol when eaten regularly. Oats are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. Celebrate National Oatmeal Month and start the New Year by getting your whole grains! Try a bowl for breakfast today!
