Originating in 1924, in Mansfield Ohio, Stewartâs Fountain Classics
were a brand of âold fashionedâ fountain sodas. They are a brand of
premium soft drinks that are made in the United States.
â1924, Frank Stewart set out to develop the worldâs
best-tasting root beer which he intended to sell in order to supplement
his income as a schoolteacher. With the secret recipes in hand, he soon
opened his first Stewartâs Drive-In where he served ice-cold Stewartâs
Root Beer in tall, frosty mugs. The creamy taste of Stewartâs Root Beer
was an instant success and has been enjoyed by consumers for over 75
âFor the first 66 years, Stewartâs Root Beer was only
available at Stewartâs root beer stands and later, at Stewartâs
Drive-Ins. In 1990, Cable Car Beverage Corporation acquired the bottling
rights for Stewartâs and began selling Stewartâs Root Beer in 12 oz.

NATIONAL EAT YOUR VEGETABLES DAY
National Eat Your Vegetables Day is celebrated annually on June 17.
The month of June celebrates National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month
and today is a perfect day to incorporate vegetables into each meal and
continue on with this part of a healthy diet.
Vegetables are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
As part of a main meal or as a snack, vegetables can be enjoyed in a
variety of ways. Each vegetable has itâs own nutritional content though
generally they contain little protein or fat and varying proportions of
vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin K and Vitamin B6, provitamins,
dietary minerals and carbohydrates. They also contain a variety of
other phytochemicals, some of which are antioxidant, antibacterial,
antifungal, antiviral and anticarcinogenic properties. There are some
vegetables that also contain fiber which is important for
gastrointestinal function. Another benefit is the important nutrients
that vegetables contain that are necessary for healthy hair and skin.
When eating a diet consisting of the recommended amounts of fruits
and vegetables, it may help lower the risk of heart diseases and type 2
diabetes. These diets may also help to decrease bone loss and protect
against some cancers. The potassium provided, may help prevent the
formation of kidney stones.
It is recommended by the USDA Dietary Guidelines for
Americans, to consume 3 to 5 servings of vegetables per day. This
recommendation may vary however, depending on age and gender. For most
vegetables, one serving is equivalent of 1/2 to 1 cup and can be eaten
either raw or cooked.
Enjoy your favorite vegetables today and everyday!
