“Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Cloverdale Kids”

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Cloverdale Kids The meat-heavy Standard American Diet (SAD) is, well, sad. Cloverdale diets high in meat and low in plants are the reason we have higher rates of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. If you have been eating the SAD diet for the past 30 years, you probably ought to get your cholesterol checked.

How can we help our Cloverdale kids eat more live foods? One of the best ways is to grow them yourself.

You can plant a garden in a yard, in containers on a deck or patio, or even in pots indoors. I have seen each of these types of gardens in my Cloverdale neighborhood.

Your garden can be pesticide and hormone free. Your kids will have fun planting, weeding, and harvesting their own ‘crops’. Our children don’t need to grow up believing that carrots and spinach come from the produce section at their nearest Cloverdale grocery store.

My family is trying to eat less meat and more plant-based foods. I also sell a fantastic antioxidant plant-based product. For more information on my kids favorite health food, call me today at (812) 986-2408.

How Does Nature Make Cloverdale Kids Happier?

Cloverdale kids shot schedule

Hello Poland parents! Welcome the the Terre Haute Kid’s Health Blog. I’m sure most of you know how important it is for your kids health to spend time outdoors each and every day. But it may be even more important than you think.

Just like proper nutrition, immunizations, and vitamins, getting outside is essential for your child’s health.

One reason if for the natural light of the outdoors. This natural light keeps kids alert and healthy. Also, exposure to this light in the morning has a way of setting children’s internal clocks to promote better sleep and earlier bedtimes. (And what Spencer parent doesn’t want earlier bedtimes?!) Another reason is that nature soothes and comforts children in safe, healthy ways. Studies have shown that children have better ability to focus with increased time outdoors. This will translate to more productive learning time as well as more tranquility in the home. Lastly, outdoor exercise is superior to indoor exercise because it promotes more physically vigorous play like jumping, running, and tumbling. These are all of the things that Owen County area parents are always telling their kids to stop doing in the living room!

Arrange your family’s schedule so that your children have time to explore the Poland outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!

Music is Magic for Poland Kids

Cloverdale immunization schedule

Parents in and around Poland know that healthy kids need proper nutrition, lots of exercise, and well-rounded lives. It’s also safe to say that for all children, a well-rounded life should include music in one form or another.

Studies have shown that music does so much more than simply entertain!

Did you know that children who are involved in some kind of musical training during school perform better in math and science? They also develop better coordination, do better in reading, concentrating, and goal setting. Studies show that students who are involved in a music education program also perform better on their SATs, and are more likely to attend college.

While it’s ideal for Spencer, Owen County, and Cloverdale parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Terre Haute area will have great advice on age-appropriate music lessons and teachers for your curious child.

But lessons aren’t the only way! Keep an eye out in the Poland community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with Spencer, Owen County, and Cloverdale libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

Keep up the good work, Poland parents! Your children are lucky to have you to help them stay safe, healthy, and happy!

My name is David Henk and I am very interested in kids health in Cloverdale. I am the owner of a Terre Haute area home business that sells Meal Replacement Shake. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://MyChocolateSolution.Com or give me a call at (812) 986-2408.

“Terre Haute Injuries: Get The Ice, Fast!”

Terre Haute Injuries Get The Ice Fast!

If your Terre Haute kids are active on the field, the court, or in your own backyard, chances are you have dealt with many bumps, bruises, and sprains. Prompt medical care can make all the difference when it comes to how quickly an injury heals.

Despite medical advancements, when it comes to a sprain, strain, break, or bruise, the best way to reduce pain and swelling is the same as when you were a kid: apply ice.

For the best DIY ice bag, fill a zip-top bag with ice cubes or crushed ice and a little water. The liquid will help the bag conform to the body and distribute the cold evenly. You can also use the frozen peas trick, which does essentially the same thing.

Don’t apply the bag to bare skin, however. This could cause frostbite or even a burn. Wrap the pack in a thin towel or article of clothing.

Don’t take the ice off too soon. Removing it after just a few minutes, when the skin is cold to the touch, won’t have a lasting effect. Leave ice on the injury until the area goes numb, but not more than 20 minutes. Repeat this once an hour for up to four hours.

Remember to get the ice on as soon as possible. Preventing and reducing inflammation speeds up the healing process. The sooner you get ice on it, the sooner your Terre Haute child will be back in action.

For more information on children’s health, or to learn about Meal Replacement Shake, a nutritious snack, contact me today!

Spencer Kid’s Health: Guard Against Chapped Skin

Spencer Kids Health Guard Against Chapped Skin

When it comes to your Spencer child’s health, you might first think of their diet. While putting vitamins and minerals inside your child’s body is important, you also need to pay attention to what is going on on the outside. I’m talking about your child’s skin.

The skin is our body’s largest organ and when skin’s smoothness is disrupted, small cracks and openings can create an entryway for bacteria and germs.

Active Spencer kids don’t often think of the condition of their skin until it starts hurting. Playing outside in hot, cold, or dry weather can lead to small cracks around knuckles or nails. This painful condition is called dermatitis, or extreme dryness. Temperature extremes in Spencer make it harder to keep skin moist and healthy – dry, chapped and cracked skin is common in summer and winter.

Many kids lick their lips until they turn red or bleed. Reminding your child to drink plenty of water can prevent over-dryness.  Using a humidifier during the night in your child’s bedroom can also help.

Make sure you leave moisturizing lip balm in handy locations: by their bed, the front door and in the car so reapplying it becomes habit. Remind them to slick some over their cuticles as well, to prevent cracking.

Owen County dermatologists suggest a using a daily skin moisturizer that contains shea butter and aloe to draw moisture into the skin and keep it in place.

Encourage Owen County kids to use waterproof gloves when playing outside in the cold. Lightweight gloves with grips added to the palms are great for playing ball and riding bikes. In addition to protecting skin from dryness, they keep small hands from slipping. You can pick these up at Indiana sporting good stores or Owen County big box stores.

Using a non-drying sanitizer is another way to prevent bacteria from entering through the skin. Look for brands that are alcohol-free to prevent excessive dryness.

For additional tips for Owen County children’s health and to learn about a nutritional supplement kids love, contact me today at (812) 986-2408!

Tips For Feeding Sick Poland Kids

Tips For Feeding Sick Poland Kids

Though the Terre Haute media is more focused on rampant Poland childhood obesity, there are some underweight children in Indiana.

When Terre Haute kids refuse to eat, it is a challenge for Terre Haute parents to make sure they get proper nutrition.

Understandably, Poland kids that usually eat normally often lose their appetite when they are sick. Kids who don’t eat much during a two-day bout with the flu will probably have no health issues from the temporary reduction in nutrition.

Poland children who undergo chemo treatment at Terre Haute hospitals, however, are at greater risk for malnutrition. Ironically, this is the time when adequate calories, vitamins, and minerals are needed the most for ill Poland children.

Here are some suggestions for helping Terre Haute kids with poor appetites receive adequate nutrition:

Don’t let your Poland child fill up on beverages before meals, serve liquids between meals
Offer small meals throughout the day
Always have healthy snacks available like protein bars, fruit, and cheese
Alter food temperature to see if it makes the food more appealing to your Terre Haute child
Try smoothies and soups if your sick Poland child has a hard time swallowing
If your child is turned off by intense smells or flavors, try bland foods with little seasoning

I want every Poland child to receive excellent nutrition and the best healthcare available in Indiana. I am excited about a new Terre Haute children’s nutrition product and would love to tell you about it. Call me today for more information.

Sneaky Veggies For Terre Haute Kids

Sneaky Veggies For Terre Haute Kids

Terre Haute parents: when you put a serving of broccoli or zucchini on your son’s or daughter’s plate, does your kid gobble it down, or stare at it like it’s a pile of alien goo? Well, if the former is true, then you can skip this article. However, I think many families in the 47868 zip code area could use some more veggies for better children’s nutrition in Terre Haute.

Here are some ideas for Terre Haute parents who want to sneak more veggies into kids’ diets:

Broccoli: cook the broccoli, blend it up, and put some of it into brownie batter. Sounds strange, I know, but even the pickiest eater won’t detect the added children’s vitamins and minerals.
Zucchini and yellow squash: shred it and add it to pasta sauces or casseroles. Theses veggies have a mild flavor, and won’t detract from the taste of the dish.
Spinach and other dark greens: if you have a high-end blender, you may be able to blend these super healthy greens raw. If not, you can boil them for a few minutes until tender, and then plunge them into ice water. Blend with some frozen fruit and yogurt or tofu for a nutrient-rich smoothie.
Cauliflower: dice it, cook it, and add it to white sauces or cheesy sauces over pasta.

There are many ways Terre Haute parents and caregivers can add healthy veggies to foods kids already eat. It might take a little more preparation, but Indiana children are worth it!

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Indiana and like to share children’s health and nutrition tips in my blog. If you are looking for low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate products, call me today. I sell Power Squares and Meal Replacement Shake, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy in Terre Haute.

Honey – Natural Remedy For Kid’s Coughs In Poland

Honey Natural Remedy For Kids Coughs In Poland

Does your Poland child wake himself up repeatedly each night because of a bad cough? Upper respiratory infections can make sleeping very difficult for kids.

It turns out that Mother Nature’s sweetest treat may also help Indiana children enjoy more zzzz’s each night. Buckwheat honey has been found to be a more effective remedy for children’s coughs than dextromethorphan (DM), the ingredient in common over-the-counter cough medicine.

A study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine concluded that honey gave children more relief from upper respiratory symptoms than DM or no treatment.1

Thanks to Indiana bees we have a safe and effective cough remedy for children over one. Remember to never give infants honey because of the risk of infantile botulism.

My name is David Henk and I sell Power Squares in the Terre Haute area. I am also an advocate for children’s health and nutrition in Indiana. Contact me today for more information about Power Squares or Meal Replacement Shake.

Fun With Water In Poland

Fun With Water In Poland

Indiana kids enjoy exercise when it is fun and most Poland kids love playing with water. Here are some fun ideas for kids outdoor water games and activities that can provide exercise and low-cost entertainment on hot days.

Jump Rope with a Twist: Give all participants a full cup of water (keep it safe with plastic cups). All cups need to be the same size. Take turns jumping rope while holding the cups of water. The person who has the most water left in the cup wins.

DIY Water Table: You can buy your kids a water table at any Poland toy store – there are many in the 47868 zip code area. Or you can make your own, and the possibilities are endless. Start with a large shallow storage container, with or without the lid. Use your imagination to add fun objects: you can put some sand in it, and bury ‘treasures’ like colorful beads, rocks, or pirate coins. You can add funnels, sifters, cars, and trucks. Then add the water, and your creative Poland kids will do the rest.

Squirt bottles: I love giving young Indiana kids squirt bottles and a small towel. If they’re young enough, they can have fun spraying the car and wiping it clean. They may also enjoy squirting the water on cement, and ‘drawing’ or ‘writing’ with the water. The same may be done if 47868 zip code area parents give children an old large paintbrush to dip in the water, and ‘paint’ the sidewalk.

Have fun, Terre Haute parents, and remember – kids are only young for a brief time – ENJOY it!

I am both an entrepreneur and children’s health advocate in Indiana. If you are looking for a low-fat chocolate snack that kids love, call me today. Power Squares and Meal Replacement Shake are two winners that help my kids stay healthy in Terre Haute. You can start your own Power Squares home based business in Terre Haute. Ask me how!

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In Spencer

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In Spencer

Hello, welcome to my Spencer children’s health and nutrition blog. Today’s topic is teen prescription drug abuse.

Most Spencer teens will be offered an illegal prescription medication at one time or another. They are sold at Indiana high schools and passed out at teen ‘pharm’ parties. Indiana parents should realize that no child is immune. Here are some tips for Spencer parents from Better Medicine: 1

Start talking about the dangers when they’re preteens. Speak early, often, and clearly.
Stay involved in your child’s life.
Emphasize how misusing medication can destroy relationships and keep him or her from achieving goals, such as getting into a certain college or landing a future job.
Teach your child to say ‘no’ firmly but kindly, give a reason, then change the subject or leave the situation.
Monitor your child’s internet usage for signs of prescription drug involvement.1

Spencer parents should keep their medications locked away. It is also important to realize that children watch how their mother and father use prescription medications. I encourage all Terre Haute parents to use prescription meds safely and legally.
