It’s common to eat lighter during the summer. One benefit of eating lighter is that we tend to eat healthier foods, especially low-cost, in-season fruits and vegetables. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says summer also provides an opportunity for parents to talk to children about nutrition, preparing healthy meals, and growing their own food.
