Albany Kid’s Health: Guard Against Chapped Skin

Albany Kids Health Guard Against Chapped Skin

When it comes to your Albany 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 Albany 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 Albany 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.

Alameda 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 Alameda 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 California sporting good stores or Alameda 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.

SpongeBob Doesn't Care About Your Orinda Child's Health

National and local Orinda food advertisers can sabotage your Alameda child’s health. Food manufacturers, like most Orinda corporations, are motivated by profit, not by what’s best for Alameda kids.

Their tools are deceptive language, cartoon characters, celebrities, and false promises of popularity. Alameda parents can help youth better handle the constant media barrage by teaching them:

The components of a healthy diet
The implied messages and false promises of Alameda food ads
Nutritional balance and moderation
How to read and understand Orinda food labels
How excessive TV watching and internet viewing can affect health

If you encounter a local Alameda food ad that is deceptive, contact the Orinda Better Business Bureau. To complain about national ads, send a letter to the Children’s Advertising Review Unit, Council of Better Business Bureaus, 845 Third Ave, New York, NY 10022.

Nothing will change until Orinda families unite to fight deceptive advertising aimed at Alameda children. For more information on children’s nutrition in Orinda, call me today.

Healthy Habits For Kids In Orinda

Healthy Habits For Kids In Orinda

The English author Samuel Johnson wrote:

The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.

All of us know the power of a habit, and parents in the Albany area want to make sure that the habits their children are developing are good ones, especially when it comes to habits that affect their health. Among these are eating habits and exercise habits.

Getting Alameda kids to develop good eating habits is essential to their proper nutrition. One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to cook and eat with your children.

Offering a variety of healthy foods is a must, and make sure that you don’t use any type of food as a reward as this suggests to your child that these treats are superior to regular food.

As for exercise, a simple trip to the park or a walk in the neighborhood may be all you need. Be sure to notice what your child is good at and enjoys, such as throwing a ball or crossing the monkey bars, and encourage them in those events.

Setting a good example in both healthy eating habits and activity levels is something all Alameda and Canyon parents should do. Your kids need you to show the way to good habits so they won’t have to break the bad ones later in life.

My name is Derrick Winkel and I want to help Alameda families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as childhood obesity in Albany, immunizations, and vitamins are important to me. I am the owner of my own Alameda home business that sells Xocai XoBiotic Squares.

4 Important Reasons To Care For Your Alameda Child’s Baby Teeth

Immunizations Orinda

It’s a common misconception among Orinda area parents that since baby teeth are just going to fall out, you don’t need to worry too much about dental care. This couldn’t be further from the truth!

First, baby’s first teeth are necessary to maintain the proper amount of space in the mouth for the permanent teeth to come. Think of them as little white placeholders in your kid’s gums.

When it comes to children’s nutrition and getting kids to eat better, Canyon, Alameda, and Albany parents are always looking for solutions. Because of this, the second reason for baby teeth health should be particularly interesting: having healthy baby teeth will lead to a healthy, more diverse diet. This is because children who have trouble chewing tend to reject new foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables.

Reason number three is your child’s speech development. Without teeth, speaking clearly is particularly challenging for children, even when their cognitive development is normal and healthy.

And finally, the fourth reason for keeping baby teeth cared for are the great habits you and your children will form as you teach them to brush for 2 minutes twice a day, floss daily, and avoid sugary drinks and candy.

A great way to get your child on the healthy teeth bandwagon is to go to any Alameda, Orinda or Albany drugstore and let them choose their own toothbrush.

Thanks for reading the Alameda Children’s Health Blog. My name is Derrick Winkel and I enjoying sharing information within the Orinda community regarding kids’ health issues such as immunization schedules and childhood obesity in Albany.

I own a terrific Alameda home based business that sells Xocai XoBiotic Squares. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 801.437.5984 or email me at 69derrickwinkel@derrickwinkel.com.

Xocai Scam Report For Alameda California

Xocai Scam Report For Alameda California

Xocai Scam Reports have become a problem in Alameda California. MLMs make easy targets for Alameda California scammers because there are a lot of competing companies, many who are unscrupulous when it comes to seeking new recruits with doubtful news.

One of the most common scam report strategies in Alameda California is for an MLM distributor to post an article announcing a ‘chocolate scam‘ or other misleading headline, and then working to recruit curious California people into a competing MLM. This is known as a ‘pirate’ tactic in the MLM community, and is really a scam in and of itself.

You see, chocolate scam reports, and announcements of Xocai scams are little more than sensational headlines designed to catch your eye. Upon evaluation, most Xocai skeptics will see that we have a great product to sell at a fair market price, with a wonderful opportunity to build and grow your own home business. it’s not a scam; there are thousands of people in the Xocai family, many of them in and around Alameda California, and they stay because we have created a good, honest business around selling one of the world’s healthiest chocolate treats.

So if you are browsing the internet in Alameda California, and come across a warning about the Xocai scam in Norway, or a skeptical review of Xocai in Oslo, bear in mind that most of these efforts are being presented by scammers who are more interested in selling their own products than in presenting an honest review of our products.

If you have any questions about a chocolate scam that you have heard of, or specific news about a Xocai scam that you are worried about, please contact me directly; I am happy to answer your questions.

Watch for my white paper titled ‘MLM Scam Report’; I am working on it and hope to release it before the end of the month.

Treating Alameda Kids’ Minor Cuts And Bumps

Treating Alameda Kids' Minor Cuts And Bumps

Spending lots of time outside is important for healthy kids in Alameda, and with all that outdoor adventure come the inevitable bumps, scrapes, and cuts. But parents in the Canyon, Alameda, and Albany areas shouldn’t fear, all you need to know are a few simple steps for treating your children’s minor injuries.

A minor cut should stop bleeding on its own, but using a clean cloth and applying gentle pressure may be necessary.

Once bleeding has stopped, rinse the wound with water and pull out any debris with alcohol-cleansed tweezers. The area around the wound can be cleaned with mild soap and a washcloth, no hydrogen peroxide or alcohol is necessary.

Once the wound is clean, apply a thin layer of antibiotic cream or ointment. Appropriate topical antibiotics can be found at any drugstore in the Alameda area. Next, you should cover your child’s wound with a bandage. When the bandage becomes wet or dirty it should be changed. Once a wound has healed enough to keep infection out, bandages should not be used since air exposure will speed your child’s healing.

Remember to watch for signs of infection such as redness, drainage, increased pain, swelling, or warmth. Contact your Canyon, Alameda, or Albany area pediatrician if you have any other concerns.

Creative Lunch Ideas For Your Alameda Kids

Creative Lunch Ideas For Your Alameda Kids

If your kids are tired of eating the same lunch every day, then today’s Orinda kid’s health blog is for you!

Instead of the old standby PB and J, put a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter in a plastic container. Then give your child healthy things to dip into it, like whole wheat crackers, celery, or apple slices.

Bento boxes are a fun way to to pack a creative and eye-catching lunch. Originating in Japan, bento boxes have small compartments to separate elements of a meal and can be found at many Canyon and Alameda area stores. They’re great for child-sized portions of food, and for kids who hate the idea of one food touching another food.

Finger foods are a fun lunch for children, and it’s easy to keep them nutritious.

Low-fat cheese cubes, fruit slices, and veggie sticks can add up to a filling meal for kids with all the vitamins and minerals they need. Sandwiches are a lunch time staple for kids, but you can try mixing up the starch. Instead of bread, try a whole-grain wrap or a whole-wheat pita.

I hope this blog post will help you add variety to your kids’ healthy lunches.
