Battling Summer Brain Drain

Battling Summer Brain Drain

Keep school skills active at home!

Have kids?  How familiar are you with brain drain?  No, we’re not referring to you!  Instead it’s about your children!  Brain drain is the term coined to explain the amount of information lost by most students over traditional summer vacation – typically between 2-3 months worth!  While a break from traditional learning has its benefits, there are a few things you can do to help keep minds sharp for the incoming school year.  It’s never too late to start!   

We’ve put together a list of kid friendly dishes that incorporate a powerhouse of produce to give growing youngsters the nutrients they need.  Aim for a variety of color with a daily focus on at least one orange and green vegetable.
