This Summer, Eat Smart to Play Hard: A Parent’s Guide is a 6-page color brochure that schools and community groups can distribute to parents to increase awareness of the importance of healthy food choices and physical activity during the summer months. The guide encourages families to choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages, choose more fruits and vegetables, increase physical activity, and decrease screen time. The guide also contains a tasty summer-themed recipe and encourages families to engage in a healthy and fun “family challenge.” The guide is available in both English and Spanish.
