    We know how important it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle with your family. But during the summer, it’s sometimes difficult to keep the kids on the same routine they’re used to during the school year — with healthy eating, exercise and learning. We challenge you to nourish your kids with 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day; the suggested amount every kid should get every day.

Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid

“Following an anti-inflammatory diet can help counteract the chronic inflammation that is a root cause of many serious diseases, including those that become more frequent as people age. It is a way of selecting and preparing foods based on science that can help people achieve and maintain optimum health over their lifetime.”

- Andrew Weil, M.D
  • Chocolate

    It has its place, in moderation. The type Weil recommends - plain and dark, with at least 70 percent cocoa - is relatively lower in sugar and provides healthy fat.
  • Spices

    The compounds in ginger, turmeric, and other spices promote our tissue and organs from inflammation.
  • Fish

    Rich in Omega-3 fats that help fight disease by reducing inflammation in the blood vessels. It also helps in lowering the risk of heart problems.
  • Dairy

    High in protein to give you the energy needed for each day.
  • Asian Mushrooms

    These mushrooms contain compounds that enhance immune function. However, never eat mushrooms raw.
  • Whole Grains

    Allow you to digest slowly, reducing frequency of blood sugar spikes that promote inflammation. You should consume grains that are intact, or are in a few large pieces; not whole wheat bread or product made from flour.
  • Vegetables

    Rich in flavanoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Go for a wide range of color, cooked and raw.
  • Fruits

    Minimize consumption of tropical fruits, like bananas and pineapples, and load up on berries, cherries, apples, and pears.
