Doctor Yum

It turns out that avoiding sugary snacks is not just healthy for your teeth, but new studies show that it's also healthy for your heart. Being mindful when eating processed foods, looking out for sugar on food labels, and relying more on whole foods can help you to establish a diet low in sugar. Eating whole fruit—a great snack,—can satisfy your need for something sweet. Unlike processed foods, the fiber in fruit slows the absorption of sugar. This means fewer spikes in blood sugar. For a twist, try freezing and juicing fruit, like bananas, for a fun, creamy, sweet treat that is better for your family's heart health!

The Doctor Yum Project is offering cooking classes in our new Instructional Kitchen. Also, bring your family out to our second annual "Run for a Healthy Glow" on May 16 for a night of running, activity, music, dance and glow!

Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
