Nutrition Tip of the Month

Balance your Lunch with Brenner FIT

Eating lunch is very important for everyone. Lunch re-energizes our bodies and keeps our metabolism active throughout the day. When packing a balanced lunch for yourself or for your child, aim for three to four food groups. An example of a balanced lunch would be chicken salad with crackers, baby carrots and grapes. Having a mixture of three to four food groups helps to fill our tummy up and last until the next meal! Join Brenner FIT’s dietitian, Katie Maxey, to learn more about preparing a Balanced Lunch.


 


Charity Of the Quarter

Teachers are the lifeblood of our education system. And they need our support! Donate new and slightly used classroom supplies and materials to the Educator Warehouse, where teachers in Forsyth County can shop for these items at no cost of their own. The Warehouse relies entirely on donations and is supported by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, PTAs, and the Forsyth Education Partnership. For more, click here.
