NATIONAL STEWART’S ROOT BEER DAY
=================================

For many years now, June 17 has celebrated National Stewart’s Root Beer Day.  Celebrating this holiday each year is easy, just gather together some friends and some Stewart’s Root Beer and enjoy!!

Originating in 1924, in Mansfield Ohio, Stewart’s Fountain Classics were a brand of “old fashioned” fountain sodas.  They are a brand of premium soft drinks that are made in the United States.

1924
Opening of the First Stewart’s Root Beer Stand

“1924, Frank Stewart set out to develop the world’s 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 Stewart’s Drive-In where he served ice-cold Stewart’s Root Beer in tall, frosty mugs. The creamy taste of Stewart’s Root Beer was an instant success and has been enjoyed by consumers for over 75 years!”  http://www.drinkstewarts.com/history.aspx

1990
Stewart’s Produced in Bottles for the First Time

“For the first 66 years, Stewart’s Root Beer was only available at Stewart’s root beer stands and later, at Stewart’s Drive-Ins. In 1990, Cable Car Beverage Corporation acquired the bottling rights for Stewart’s and began selling Stewart’s Root Beer in 12 oz. amber glass bottles.”  http://www.drinkstewarts.com/history.aspx

1997

The Cable Car Beverage Corporation was purchased by Triarc in November of 1997.

2000

In 2000, Cadbury Schweppes PLC acquired the Stewart’s  brands along with Snapple and Mistic Brands. 

**** In 2006 at the World Cup of Root Beer, Stewart’s  Root  Beer was named the top       Root Beer!

* Pittsburgh is the root beer guzzling capital of the world!

On this day, many stores, across the United States, will be hosting event demos of  Stewart’s Root Beer to their customers.

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 it’s 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!
