Doctor Yum

choose waterIf you are trying to get your teenager to adopt healthier eating habits, a great place to start is beverages. Teens consume more sugary beverages than any other age group, resulting in almost 300 extra calories for adolescent males! Try phasing out sports drinks, juices, sodas and energy drinks (which can contain dangerous amounts of caffeine and other substances) and substituting with water or lowfat milk. Conquering this habit successfully may lead to other healthy changes in your teen.

The Doctor Yum Project has moved to our new space at 10482 Georgetown Drive, where we have a bright new multimedia instructional kitchen. Stay tuned for a new schedule of cooking adventures for kids.

For information on volunteer opportunities, our cooking classes, and to see our collection of kid-tested recipes, visit www.doctoryum.com. Be sure to visit our Facebook page for ideas on eating healthy!
