Dr. Diet weighs in:

With summer coming to an end and school beginning, this can be a great time to start anew and reevaluate your diet â€" whether you do or don’t have school-age kids.

I applaud the positive nutrition changes mentioned in this article, many of which are applicable to all of us. The changes being made in school cafeterias around the country are changes you can make in your own kitchen.

If you’re ready to do your own food makeover, here are some suggestions:

--frying is out; baking is in
This may be the time to check out the diet.com recipe section for new ways to cook great-tasting dishes without frying.

--try pizza with wheat crust and less cheese
The next time you order pizza, ask for a wheat crust and “light on the cheese.”

--bypass the full sugar soft drinks in that vending machine
Try bottled water, no calorie soft drinks or flavored waters instead.

--Get better access to fresh fruits and vegetables
Check out co-ops in your neighborhood where you can order reasonably priced fresh produce on a regular basis.
