Doctor Yum

teen parties healthierFor your next party, take a break from the usual cupcakes and pizza and try unexpected foods with a healthy twist. When presenting healthy alternatives, make sure those foods look exciting.
• Try fruit kabobs or fruit plates in a rainbow of colors, or use fruits and veggies to create fun animals and other designs.
• Use a variety of dips to encourage kids to try the foods you present.
• Have a station where kids can make their own smoothies or wraps with healthy ingredients they love.

You will be surprised how much fun kids can have with more nutritious choices!

The Doctor Yum Project is offering cooking classes in our new Instructional Kitchen. Don't forget to bring your family out to our second annual "Run for a Healthy Glow" on May 16th for a night of running, activity, music, dance and GLOW!

Information on our cooking classes and Glow Run are at www.doctoryum.com.
