What is Veterans Day &Why Do We Celebrate It?

Veterans Day is a federal holiday that honors veterans who have served in our armed forces. Veterans Day is also the

anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. This holiday is sometimes called Remembrance Day or

Armistice Day and is celebrated on November 11 th every year.

Some other facts about Veterans Day include:

The Armistice was signed during the 11 th hour of the 11 th

day of the 11 th Month which was November 11, 1918.

The original idea for the holiday was for a day to be observed with

parades, public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11 :00 a.m.

On June 4th, 1926, Congress

passed a resolution for an annual national observance.

On May 13th, 1938, Veterans Day became a national holiday.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation on November 8th, 1954 to change the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day in order to honor the veterans of all

'can wars.

Thin:tritiont-(.4 DIETARY FATS:

KNow WHICH ONES To Cl--Kx>sEI Most foods contain several different kinds of fat, and some are better for your health than others. You don't need to completely eliminate all fat from your diet. In fact, some fats actually p.~~~ help promote good health. But it's wise to choose the healthier types of dietary fat, and then enjoy them in moderation. Some types of fats you may be familiar with include:

Bad Types of Fat: - Saturated Fat - This is a type of fat that comes

mainly from animal sources of food. - Trans Fat - This type of fat occurs naturally in some foods, especially foods from animals.

Healthier Types of Fat: - Monounsaturated Fat - This is a type of fat found

in a variety of foods and oils. - Polyunsaturated Fat - This is a type of fat found

mostly in plant-based foods and oils.

Be sure to get your parents involved if you believe you are consuming too much fat. Have them check food labels with you to ensure you are eating a

balanced diet!
