The Food's Nothing to Write Home About
Did You Know?

While most summer camps serve fattening foods and sugary sweets, weight-loss camps offer kids healthy, low-calorie alternatives to their favorite foods. The goal of these camps is to help overweight kids lose weight and establish healthier eating habits.

Regardless if you're a health nut or are just moderately concerned about what your child puts in his body, you should know that summer camp food is mostly junk. Camps serve up cheap meals that can be prepared quickly and in bulk. That means a lot of burgers and fries. Even if quality food alternatives are served, chances are kids will opt for a hot dog and chips over a grilled chicken salad.

You can also expect your child to experience a huge sugar crash once he gets home. The only things he'll likely be drinking during his time away will be soda and juice.
