Prevent Classroom Sickness In Canyon

Prevent Classroom Sickness In Canyon

To curb the spread of viruses, lice, and other kid’s health threats in Canyon schools, parents need to teach their kids proper hygiene practices and review them on a regular basis.

Here is a rundown of some unwelcome classroom visitors and steps to combat them:

  • Head lice: wash hands frequently, don’t share combs, hats, scarves.
  • Ringworm (skin infection with circular lesions, not actually caused by worms): keep sores covered, don’t share combs or clothing.
  • Pinkeye: vigilant hand washing can help stop the spread. Canyon parents should keep kids home if their eyes are pink or draining fluid.
  • Colds, flu, strep: anti-bacterial wipes and no-rinse hand sanitizer can supplement soap and water scrubbing. Remind kids not to share drinks, snacks, lotion, chap stick, and lip gloss.

Canyon children who know and practice these safeguards will be prepared when the next H1N1 threat visits Orinda.

Is Juicing Better For Orinda Kids?

Is Juicing Better For Orinda Kids?

Orinda health trends come and go and I have recently noticed that the practice of juicing fruits and vegetables has made its way back into the California children’s nutrition spotlight.

In my experience, I have found that the only Orinda parents who have been successful at making their own super-healthy juices over the long term are Orinda vegetarians who dedicate a lot of daily time to preparing their food.

Most Orinda people who buy an expensive juicer use it for a few weeks before it is relegated to the back shelf of the pantry. Though juicing provides a way to improve your children’s nutrition, it can be time-consuming and expensive. After buying fresh fruits and vegetables, it can cost several dollars to make one glass. Of course, if you have ever tasted fruit and vegetable juices made fresh, you know how delicious they are. For many Orinda parents, this is worth every minute and every dollar spent.

Does juicing provide more nutrition than eating whole fruits and vegetables?

I haven’t come across any convincing evidence of this but I do see the value for Orinda parents whose kids enjoy drinking juice more than eating whole fruits and vegetable. Mixing vegetables with sweet fruits in a juice can disguise their taste and make them more palatable than the same vegetables raw or cooked.

Orinda parents who would like to start juicing should keep in mind the fact that juicing usually removes all the fiber from the fruits and veggies used. A glass of fresh juice also contains a lot of calories!

4 Critical Playground Rules For Orinda Kids

Nutrition for Orinda children

The local playground is a good place for Canyon, Alameda, and Albany children to enjoy exercise and social interaction. However, there is potential for injury. Today in the Alameda Kid’s Health Blog, we want to give you some helpful playground safety advice.

First, in the hot California summer months parents should be sure to check any metal equipment such as slides before a child climbs on. The sun can quickly heat metal to the point that it can burn skin. Also, never allow children to play on the playground without wearing shoes.

Next, parents should pay special attention to the moving parts at their Orinda play area. These areas should be out of reach for children, but parents should always double-check to make sure that kids can’t reach these danger zones.

Third, don’t allow children to attach other items, such as jump ropes or leashes, onto the playground equipment.

Lastly, many families choose to ride bikes to the park. This can be the perfect way to get exercise and avoid childhood obesity in Albany. Just make sure children remove their helmets as well as anything else that is around their necks (like hoodies with drawstrings).

My name is Derrick Winkel and I want to help Orinda families raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition and kid’s immunization schedules are often on my mind. I am the proud owner of my own Orinda area home business that sells Xocai XoBiotic Squares.

The ORAC Storm – How ORAC 5.0 Has Changed Everything In Alameda

The ORAC Storm White PaperThe ORAC Storm – How ORAC 5.0 Has Changed Everything in Alameda by David Bell is a new ebook available exclusively at http://adampaulgreen.com.

Download: The ORAC Storm

On May 16, 2012, the Agricultural Research Service (“ARS”) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) removed the ORAC database from its website without a full explanation to the people in Alameda of why they did so. This appeared, to certain skeptics in Alameda, to be a major change in direction for the department and its main research arm which had actually contributed to the development and widespread use of ORAC for a decade.
Furthermore, the Agricultural Research Service had even maintained a database that was considered to be the central repository of reliable ORAC information for the Orinda area. This unexpected decision by the Agricultural Research Service had an immediate and powerful effect on the nutrition industry around Orinda. To make matters worse, main stream media outlets mistakenly reported that ORAC was now meaningless.
These “half-truth” reports confused nutritional companies across the country. Those in Orinda who once touted the effectiveness of ORAC, now wondered what to do and how they would quantify their health products nutritional-values moving forward. So, what really happened?
My name is David Bell. I am a Wharton-educated nutritional products expert. My company, Bell Advisory Services (New Bedford, MA), provides critical research findings to food and nutrition industry clients across the globe. Bell Advisory is recognized as an authority on ORAC and antioxidants (aka: AOX).
The purpose of this online white paper is to provide the facts regarding:

  1. The Truth About ORAC
  2. Why Antioxidants are Vital
  3. ORAC 5.0 – the New Generation
  4. The Future of AOX (i.e. Antioxidants)

Do You Know Your Alameda Child’s BMI?

Canyon Kids Vitamins

Because of issues such as childhood obesity in Albany, there has been a lot of discussion about BMI or Body Mass Index. However, some parents in the Canyon and Alameda area aren’t quite sure what this number is, what it represents, and why it is important.

Each time you take your child to your Orinda pediatrician for a well child check-up, you are given statistics regarding your child’s growth. BMI is a growth statistic that uses height and weight to estimate a person’s body fat.

BMI can then help Canyon parents and pediatricians know if a child’s weight is appropriate.

If your Alameda area pediatrician does not measure BMI, there are many free calculators on the internet that are easy to use and can give you an accurate measure. Once you have a BMI calculated for your child, it’s a good idea to share this information with your child’s doctor and make any changes that your doctor recommends.

Children with a high BMI are usually instructed to:

Be active for at least 60 minutes each day
Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day for proper nutrition
Limit soda
Practice appropriate portion sizes

Healthy kids are happy kids, and I love helping Canyon, Alameda, and Albany parents establish healthy habits. My name is Derrick Winkel and I am the owner of my own Alameda home business that sells Xocai XoBiotic Squares.

Canyon Kids Vitamins

As Orinda kids get older, they often are able to help out around the house. Giving kids more responsibility is essential to their health and development, but parents should be sure to know what responsibilities their children are ready for, especially when it comes to working in the yard.

Mowing the lawn is  a weekly chore for many Orinda families, and most parents are happy to turn this job over to an older child. However, parents should be absolutely sure that their child is old enough (and mature enough) to safely operate the machinery. After all, we’re talking about sharp, motorized blades whirring within arm’s length of our child’s legs and feet. Because these machines are commonplace, many parents forget how dangerous they are. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be at least twelve years of age before using a walk-behind mower and sixteen for ride-on mowers. Of course, this doesn’t mean that every teen is capable of safely mowing the lawn, these are only general guidelines.

Anyone operating a mower should wear sturdy shoes instead of sandals. Remove objects from the lawn such as toys and small rocks before mowing, and insist that your child wear eye protection while they mow.

Regardless of who is cutting the grass at your Canyon, Alameda, or Alameda home, young children should not be outside playing while the mower is running.

How to Choose a Orinda Pediatrician

How to Choose a Orinda Pediatrician

Keeping children healthy is among the highest priorities for Alameda, California parents.

There are hundreds of qualified pediatricians to help with your health goals in the Albany, Alameda, and Canyon area, but how do you choose one?

Since these medical professionals are the people you will rely on to give your child immunizations and advise you on proper nutrition for your family, you’ll want someone you’re comfortable with.

One of the best things you can do is to ask other Orinda parents which pediatricians they recommend. As soon as you have a few names, you can begin calling the offices and perusing the websites for each practice.

Here are a few questions to keep in mind when talking to the receptionist or nurse on the phone:

Where did the doctor go to medical school?
Is the staff friendly?
Are the office hours convenient for your schedule?
Does the doctor belong to a group practice where they can cover for each other during vacations, etc.?
What hospital does the doctor or practice use?

When you have narrowed down your list to a pediatrician that fits these criteria, you can visit the office and ask the staff or pediatrician any additional questions you may have. This is one of the best ways to understand children’s healthcare in Alameda.

I’m Derrick Winkel and children’s health is very important to me. I am the owner of a great Alameda home business that sells a nutritional chocolate product. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://derrickwinkel.com/products/ or give me a call at 801.437.5984.
