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!

Pouches Visits the Past

HistoryCamp

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
