Childhood Obesity Prevention

Make eating healthy food a family affair, and be sure not to single out one child. You can still allow snacks as long as they’re healthy, just don’t have anything that’s bad for you available.

However, one of the most important things that school offers for their learning environment and physical development may be completely out of your realm of thought: school lunches. While you try to keep a balanced menu at home, as much as a third of your child’s nutritional needs may be met in the school environment, so knowing what they are eating and working to ensure that it is healthy is extremely important for parents.

Your child not only forms the groundwork for a healthy life in childhood, his eating patterns affect his health in later years. Too often school lunch programs offer junk food because the food is popular and cheap. However, the price of healthy food doesn’t have to be exorbitant and it is far cheaper when you consider the health of your child in later decades of his life.

Green smoothies are a blended mix of 60% ripe fruit, 40% green vegetables and some water. You can use baby spinach, bok choy, silverbeet, parsley or beetroot leaves. Start with a smaller percentage of green vegetables (about 20%) and gradually work the level up.

If you do not know what this game is, it basically goes like this. You hand someone a football and he runs away from everyone playing. This ball carrier, however, does not run to an end zone. He/she simply avoids everyone trying to tackle them.

You may have heard that more and more children are gaining weight to the point of obesity, and that it seems the problem gets worse and worse as time goes on. There are many reasons for this, but thankfully, there are also many great weight loss approaches for children.

The struggle to develop good eating habits among toddlers, preschoolers and older children seems never-ending, but encouraging children to eat appropriately does not require confrontations and battles. What may be needed instead may just require some discipline and patience.

Childhood now we should be quite familiar with the term “childhood obesity”. It’s a severe medical diagnosis interferes with the process of raising health children. A child is considered to be obese when they are well over their normal weight based upon age and height.

The idea of psychological impacts on an obese child was unheard of until recently as the issue has been receiving quite a bit of worldwide attention. With all this attention, we all wonder what is going on with them mentally and emotionally. For parents, it’s difficult to understand what their child is thinking or feeling as they cannot be with them all day to partake in their daily routine.

Children need daily activity year round, so it’s never too early to instill a positive healthy attitude towards exercise. Preschoolers can run, jump and dance. Older kids can participate in school or community sports leagues. Parents should encourage physical activity for their child, regardless of weight.

The general public finds it difficult to decipher healthy food choices from non-healthy food choices. Shouldn’t we be concerned about this? Eating a cupcake, a scoop of ice cream in moderation is normal and to be expected, but when people are trying to make healthy choices and the packaging, marketing and advertising tell them it’s healthy, can the companies be trusted? Not always.

There are many theories as to why children do not tend to want to eat lunch at school. The main one, which is common sense really, is that they want to play with their friends at lunchtime and this takes priority. This is especially the case with boys. They have been sitting down for a few hours, they have lots of energy to expend and the opportunity to run around and throw or kick a ball with their friends takes their mind off food.

Participating in sports is a fun and practical way to learn about goal setting. Sit down with your child and help him/her write down each goal. By doing this, you are developing your child’s goal setting skills and giving him/her a better chance at succeeding in life.

For instance, dinner can be started earlier even before Dad and Mom get home, because the kids are them choose the menu and also make an effort to take them grocery shopping so that they learn the process. It is also a learning experience for parents.…

Simple Autism Prevention

Simple Autism PreventionThere are hundreds or maybe thousands of new products on the market to help autism patients.� But, since there’s no money in it, there’s been very little or no attention given to PREVENTING ‘s a very simple therapy that does just that:At the start of pregnancy (or even before), start taking a minimum of 4000 mg (4 grams) of vitamin C, split into 2 grams with breakfast and 2 grams with dinner.� (I get 1 gram tabs at Costco pretty cheap.)At lunch take a good megavitamin with a day’s supply of minerals, and stress vitamins, such as Solgar’s VM-75 or an equal with good minerals as well as extra vitamins.� BTW, the so-called “pre-natal” vitamins “prescribed” for pregnant women are actually more expensive�and less effective than “standard” equivalents. VM-75 is much better IMO.Since vitamin C in these amounts acts as a mineral chelator, it will gradually take out any mercury, lead, and other toxic heavy metals that cause autism.� Just eating tuna fish (a staple for pregnant women it seems) gets mercury into the body.� The increasing use of coal in power plants also puts mercury into the air and soil. This mercury added to that in vaccines is the CAUSE of autism in this toxicity is removed over the length of the pregnancy, the liver will be better able to filter out new mercury, and autism should go down to the 1 case in 10,000 of not so long those women further along, double or even triple those amounts and split them up more so as to literally saturate the blood.� This should be enough to give the new baby a start without a toxic handicap.� The only “bad” side effect from Vitamin C is diarrhea!The other prevention is to NEVER let the MD’s/hospitals give your child more than one or two vaccines at one time.�� Big Pharma has lied many times about the mercury in vaccines, and proved that it cannot be is chelation?� The word means to “grab onto”, and a chelation chemical is designed to grab onto minerals in the bloodstream, form a new molecule that is water soluble, that is then filtered out via the kidneys and urine system.� Because of the lies about vitamin C made by Big Pharma, very few MD’s and others in the health business know that Vitamin C has the same action.� It also combines with the minerals in the blood to form a water soluble molecule, similar to the action of a chelator such as EDTA.� Glutathione is another similar chemical.� In autistic infants and children, it is almost absent.� This means that an autistic child has very little chance to get rid of mercury, lead or aluminum unless these “natural” chelators or some other chelation method is present.� (There are many really expensive methods of getting glutathione into the autistic person, but all are relatively poor.� Both vitamin C and glutathione go out of the body in a few hours.� Vitamin C is much cheaper.)� The job of the liver is to filter out toxic minerals, store them, and gradually release them back into the bloodstream IF, AND ONLY IF, there is a chelating chemical present.� This means that if an autistic child is tested by using blood, urine, or hair samples, the result will usually be a FALSE negative.� This fact has been used in court cases to “prove” that mercury wasn’t the cause of the autism.� More lies by Big Pharma!�Note that the above regimen has vitamin C at breakfast and other vitamins and minerals at lunch.� This allows the Vitamin “C to take out minerals for the hours it lasts in the morning.� By noon, the Vitamin C has gone when the multi-vitamin/mineral pill is taken.� This allows the nutritional minerals to be absorbed,� With all chelation, ALL minerals are taken out of the body, and so the ones needed have to be added back into the body.� Otherwise, the shortages of nutritional minerals may cause other you know any pregnant woman?� If so, pass this on.� It’s cheap insurance, and as an added benefit, the woman won’t get colds and flus while carrying the baby.…
