Camps are generally nurturing environments designed to help your child succeed and grow. Whether playing sports all day or learning about science experiments, all children need healthy foods to help their endurance and brain activity. Healthy lifestyles begin with healthy food choices and healthy food choices should be encouraged every day, no matter where you are; school or camp! Because you are a concerned parent, there are a few questions you must ask the camp administration upon admitting your child into summer camp.
Here are a few suggestions to help make the most out of your child’s camp experience:
Focus on a healthy lifestyle all year round! Months and months of health food choices during school cannot afford to be offset by unhealthy food choices made in the summer. It is important that children are served well-balanced and healthful meals at summer camps not only to maintain their weight loss but to remain fit and active. Become an advocate for your child and demand that healthy meals are served at camp. Do not be afraid to ask questions concerning the nutritional value of meals being served to your child; summer camps want to provide special experiences for your children so they should be happy to help you in any way possible.
