Nutrition Talk: Food in the Fast Lane

•  As school starts back and the summer routine diminishes, so can our eating habits. From every day activities, to getting the kids to school, taking them to practice, going to appointments etc,. it can be tempting to stop and grab fast food rather than cooking a meal at home. We will discuss exactly what you are consuming when grabbing food on the go.
