WEEKLY NUTRITION and FITNESS TIPS
BASD Health Matters Monthly #1
The Bethlehem Area School District prides itself on its health services department and the staff that supports it. Each month, we will give you some quick tips from our knowledgeable employees and partners.
Healthy Tips from Michelle Martucci, RD, LDN
Dietitian for Bethlehem Area School District
The ABC Tips - N:
Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast grown on sugar cane and beet molasses. It is known to have a nutty, cheesy flavor. Nutritional yeast is considered a complete protein, because it contains the nine essential amino acids that your body cannot make. In addition, it can be consumed in vegan and vegetarian diets. Vegan and vegetarian diets sometimes lack in B vitamins, which nutritional yeast is abundant in. You can even purchase a fortified version of nutritional yeast, which is packed with even more nutrients. Nutritional yeast is known to boost your immune system and promote good digestion. Try sprinkling nutritional yeast on pasta dishes, salads, soups, or popcorn.

Cops 'n' Kids Events
2019 Cops ’n’ Kids 13th Annual
Celebration of Reading . . . and the Arts and Sciences
April 27, 2019 — 11 am until 3 pm
We have started planning for our 13th annual Cops ’n’ Kids Celebration of Reading . . . and the Arts and Sciences, and we have a great deal to celebrate!
With the help of our entire community, the award-winning Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program has reached a remarkable milestone, distributing more than 940,000 free books thus far.
This will be our "March to the Millionth" event!
To celebrate this accomplishment, and the children of our community, we invite you to join us (rain or shine) for a day of food, fun, family, crafts, entertainment, laughter—and, of course, literacy.
If you are interested in having your students perform, please contact Tammy Giampapa at email@example.com for more information.
Please mark your calendars—and thank you for helping us to “connect kids and community through literacy.”
