Summer officially extends well into the month of September, however, as soon as September rolls around, we begin the transition from summer to fall. The long, warm evenings spent grilling on the patio are numbered, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy many favorite summer foods - and to look forward to fall favorites as well.

Make lunchtime fun and healthy with plenty of kid friendly fruits and veggies. Get creative with new ways to incorporate fresh produce into lunches. Try a peanut butter sandwich with ultra thin slices of fresh, crisp apples, or a pita pocket stuffed with cream cheese and fresh veggies. Items like carrots, celery, or apples with a healthy homemade dip are always a hit!First Day of Fall
