July is Sandwich Generation Month
“Three Generations Bound By Caring”

The Sandwich Generation is a generation of people who care for their aging parents while supporting their own children. It is a commemoration and celebration of dedication, patience and caring. The goal is to raise awareness of the tireless efforts of (and support available to) members of this growing generation.

Sandwich Generation Month is held every July and brings the community and families together to heighten understanding of the special needs of this generation. It also spotlights community support available to those working hard to maintain multi-generational families.

According to the Pew Research Center, just over 1 of every 8 Americans aged 40 to 60 is both raising a child and caring for a parent.

Ice Cream Flavors Song
Sunday, July 17th is National Ice Cream Day

Cynthia Sass, MPH, MA, RD, CSSD describes
"How to choose healthier ice cream".

From the table below you can see ice cream has a variety of calories and amounts of fat. I have never been a fan of no sugar added ice cream. However, the flavor of some of the light brands I found to match those of the regular and premium brands. Try some of the light brands and see what you think?
