It’s almost time for the change in season, tailgate season that is – and Bama fans are already preparing for their game day tailgates and parties – on and off campus. 

Children establish eating habits as early as two years old!  At Head Start/Early Head Start programs, we partner with families to build healthy eating habits early; one way to do this is to serve meals family-style. Eating family-style meals is a great way to introduce healthy foods, model healthy behaviors and provide opportunities for nutrition education.

What is Family Style Eating?

This week’s Humane Society of West Alabama’s Pet of the Week is beautiful Luna! She is a solid black, very sleek, bobtail girl who is about 3-years-old. Luna was surrendered to the shelter because of conflict with the family dog.

Luna loves to play fetch, is very affectionate, loves to cuddle, and ride on your shoulder! Unfortunately, as her time passes in the shelter she is becoming more withdrawn and doesn’t play as much – but she is still very affectionate and loving and will be a great addition to your family.

Luna is available for adoption.

Luna is stunning, and she’s so ready for her new home.

Please call 205-554-0011 or visit humanesocietyofwa.org to request an appointment to meet Luna, and all of the available animals.

This week’s calendar is a little on the thin side – but that’s to be expected, as many of us head out of town for a last vacation before school starts back next week. Enjoy!
