JMS Daily Announcements

April 28, 2016

Thursday, April 28, 2016

• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW •

Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a good one!

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
Many people start their day with a glass of juice. If you drink juice at breakfast, make sure it is 100% juice, not a juice drink with added sugar, corn syrup, or artificial sweeteners. Too much juice isn't healthy — a small glass of 4-6 ounces is plenty.

Most breakfast muffins are really pieces of cake, not a smart breakfast choice! If you like muffins, bake healthy whole grain ones, freeze them, and pop one in the toaster oven or defrost overnight for a quick breakfast.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Makiah B.!
