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.

Watermelon—A Sweet Summer Treat!

Watermelon 

Watermelons have a history that roots way back to Africa, Egypt, and India — as long ago as 2500 BC! Although watermelons are native to Africa, they have become a classic American favorite for cookouts and snacks. Watermelon is a sweet and refreshing treat for the summer, but is also jammed packed with nutrients, like vitamin C, potassium, and beta-carotene. Watermelons are particularly high in Lycopene — which may help reduce cancer risk.
