Keep Phoenix Kids Moving With An At-Home Dance Party!

Las Vegas Kids Health

Healthy Portland area children don’t spend too much time sitting around. They keep busy with active play and Sherwood recreational sports. But sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate.

When it’s too hot, cold, or wet for your kids to go out, don’t just turn on the TV or share your iPad, get your kids moving with a dance party!

Many moms have discovered how fun it is to dance their way to health in exercise classes such as Zumba and Hip Hop. If you’ve attended these classes at your local San Diego or Las Vegas gym, try teaching your kids some of the simpler routines.

However, even if you prefer running to dancing, your kids will have fun. Just choose some music and start moving. You’ll be having fun and preventing childhood obesity at the same time.

Portland parents, don’t let the weather stop you from helping your kids find a way to move around and stay healthy!

3 Critical Toy Safety Rules For Sherwood Parents

Portland childrens vitamins

Between holidays and birthdays, there are plenty of opportunities for gift giving in the Portland area, so parents are often on the lookout for toys to give at the next big event. Toys can promote children’s health by stimulating the mind, encouraging imagination, or by getting kids moving around and exercising. But whatever toy you choose, make sure it is safe.

Next time you are browsing the toy aisle of your favorite Las Vegas, Phoenix, or San Diego department store, here are a few safety tips to keep in mind.

1. Be sure that you purchase toys that suit the child’s age and abilities. Buying a toy that is meant for older children is a possible safety hazard and should always be avoided.

2. Once you’ve chosen an age-appropriate toy, read all of the enclosed instructions before allowing your kids to play with it.

3. This can be difficult when you have children of differing ages, but you should always make sure that older kids play with toys containing small parts away from younger children, and never allow them to leave the game pieces unattended.

And, speaking of gifts, remember that ribbons and strings should be taken away immediately after a gift or toy is unwrapped.

My name is Jeff Reese and I am passionate about kids health in Las Vegas. I want to help parents in and around Portland to raise healthy children and I do this by discussing important issues in my Children’s Health Blog, such as proper nutrition, immunization schedules, and safety.

I own a home based business here in Sherwood that sells Protein Meal Replacement Shake. If you would like to learn more, call me at 503-318-4395 or visit me on the web at http://mxi.myvoffice.com/happyheartxocolate.

Honey – Natural Remedy For Kid’s Coughs In Sherwood

Honey Natural Remedy For Kids Coughs In Sherwood

Does your Sherwood 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 Oregon 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 Oregon 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 Jeff Reese and I sell Power Squares in the Portland area. I am also an advocate for children’s health and nutrition in Oregon. Contact me today for more information about Power Squares or Protein Meal Replacement Shake.

Music is Magic for Sherwood Kids

Las Vegas immunization schedule

Parents in and around Sherwood 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 San Diego, Phoenix, and Las Vegas parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Portland 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 Sherwood community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with San Diego, Phoenix, and Las Vegas libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

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

Sherwood Parents Who Reduce Stress May Have Healthier Kids

Sherwood Parents Who Reduce Stress May Have Healthier Kids

Moms and dads in the Portland area are always looking for ways to keep their kids healthy, but some of them might not know that reducing their own stress levels can have great benefits for their children.

A recent study shows that stressed-out parents are more likely to have an obese child, and childhood obesity in San Diego is a risk factor for a variety of diseases and disorders.

The main culprits behind this trend are the parents who are too busy and stressed out to provide healthy food to their children.

It’s true that nutritious, well-rounded meals take a little more work, and they can seem more expensive compared to their over-processed counterparts. However, in the long-run, a healthy lifestyle will be better on your pocketbook.

When parents include time in their busy Las Vegas and Phoenix schedules to de-stress, it can benefit the entire family.
Furthermore, learning to deal with stress in a healthy way is an important skill for parents and children, so next time you visit your Sherwood family practitioner or pediatrician, ask about ways your whole family can reduce stress.

Hi, I’m Jeff Reese and I own a home business in Portland that sells Protein Meal Replacement Shake. I am very concerned about issues related to the health of children such as proper nutrition and vitamins.

If you would like to know more about my home-based business or Protein Meal Replacement Shake, please give me a call at 503-318-4395.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Sherwood Parents: Is Your Child’s Car Seat Safe?

Sherwood Parents: Is Your Child's Car Seat Safe?

Anyone in Sherwood who transports kids in their car should regularly review the child safety seat regulations. Oregon and federal laws are periodically updated. Sherwood parents who think their six year-old doesn’t need to be in a booster seat may be surprised to learn that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that children stay in a booster seat until their height and weight exceed the manufacturer’s limits.

Complete recommendations can be found at http://www.nhtsa.gov/Safety/CPS

Here are some quick facts for Sherwood parents:

  • Keep infants and toddlers rear-facing as long as possible.
  • Upgrade child safety seat when child reaches max height and weight for each particular model.
  • Most Oregon Wal-Mart, Target, and Babies-R-Us stores carry safety seats for all ages.
  • Sherwood children are ALWAYS safer in the back seat and those under twelve should never ride in the front seat.

Nutrition for Portland children

Hi! My name is Jeff Reese of Sherwood. I own a home based business that sells Protein Meal Replacement Shake. I am passionate about helping Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Diego parents raise happy and healthy kids. That is why I started the Children’s Health Blog. Today I would like to explain what the blog can do for you.

There truly is a wealth of children’s health and wellness information on the internet, but sometimes it can feel a bit like getting a drink from a fire hose. In my blog, I try to distill this information into helpful tips that busy Portland parents can really use.

Some of the topics that I am most concerned with are proper nutrition, childhood obesity, and immunization schedules.

Keeping our kids healthy can really be a challenge these days. They seem to be eating more junk food, watching more television, and playing outside less and less. But having healthy children is possible. Visit the blog often to find out how!

3 Easy Ways For Sherwood Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Las Vegas kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Diego area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even kids.

Antioxidants work their magic by protecting cells from free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines.

Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You might remember from chemistry class that this is the same process that causes an apple slice to turn brown. During oxidation in the cells, DNA can be damaged and changed, which can create the beginnings of disease. A chain reaction of damage can also occur with one damaged molecule becomes a free radical itself and then damages another, and so on.

Now that you know their importance, here are 3 great ways to get more antioxidants into your kids’ diets.

1. Get more veggies on their plates at dinner time and in their lunch boxes

2. Make fruit the snack of choice for your family

3. When buying processed snacks, choose those fortified with antioxidants.

NIH Children’s Check-Up Guidelines In Portland

NIH Children's Check-Up Guidelines In PortlandAs Oregon parents, we know our children’s health includes physical, mental and social well-being. Most Portland parents are aware of the essentials in keeping their kids healthy; providing nutritious meals, making sure they get adequate sleep and physical activity, and guaranteeing their safety.

It is also necessary for our Portland kids to receive regular checkups with their Oregon health care providers. Not only will these visits track your Portland child’s development, but will aid in averting health problems.

According to the NIH, besides regular checkups, school-age Las Vegas and Sherwood children should also see their Portland doctor for:

  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Sleep problems or change in behavior
  • Fever higher than 102
  • Rashes or skin infections
  • Frequent sore throats
  • Breathing problems

I would love to share more children’s health information with you. Please call me today!

3 Tips For Improving Sherwood Kids’ Attention Spans

Las Vegas immunization schedule

Hello Oregon parents! Today in the Sherwood Children’s Health Blog, we are going to look at various ways to lengthen kids’ attention spans. An increased attention span can improve learning ability as well as behavior and is an important aspect of kids health in Las Vegas.

1. Find an activity that will hold their attention. This might mean that you need to experiment with different types of toys and crafts. One child might enjoy building blocks while another may become engrossed in an art project. There are many craft and hobby stores in the San Diego, Phoenix, and Las Vegas area where parents can get great ideas.

2. Recorded stories are a wonderful resource for increasing attention spans. Have your child lie on the floor and close their eyes, then play a recorded story. When it’s finished, have your child retell the story to you. Local Portland libraries are perfect for finding recorded books and stories. Or you can download audio books for your iPad or other electronic reader.

3. Make sure that your child is using age-appropriate toys, crafts, and media. Age recommendations can be very helpful when deciding what activities will effectively engage your child.

Remember that it’s natural for different children to have varying attention spans, but the attention span of all kids should improve with age.

I’m Jeff Reese and I am passionate about helping Oregon parents raise healthy and happy kids. I try to keep apprised on the latest in proper nutrition, childhood obesity, and immunizations. I am the owner of my own Sherwood home business that promotes Protein Meal Replacement Shake.
