Food of the Month ​

Each month, Department of Juvenile Services Director of Food and Nutrition Patricia Faught and her staff develop a Food of the Month theme for Juvenile Services food managers in the facility cafeterias. The purpose of the Food of the Month is to promote nutrition within department youths' diet. This food item is chosen based on consideration of and correlation to the traditions of different ethnic Heritage Months.

July 2018 is National Blueberry Month

Blueberries are the #1 Blue Foods!

dairy products 

In terms of U.S. fruit consumption, blueberries rank only second to strawberries in popularity of berries. Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. It is recommended to enjoy raw blueberries, rather than relying upon blueberries incorporated into baked desserts, because, like other fruits, raw blueberries provide you with the best flavor and the greatest nutritional benefits. Adding blueberries to your diet may have health benefits, including heart and vision health, cancer prevention, and many others.

Look out for blueberries in your facility's cafeteria!
