Choose Healthy Kids Snacks In Phoenix

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Choose Healthy Kids Snacks In Phoenix My name is Joel Prince and I am a children’s health advocate in Phoenix, Arizona. Most Arizona parents notice behavioral effects when they feed their kids highly processed foods full of sugar and additives.

Phoenix elementary teachers advise sending fruit, vegetables, and protein in children’s lunches and leaving processed, sugary snacks at home. They notice that Phoenix children who eat healthy learn and behave better.

When shopping at your Phoenix grocery store you may want to start reading labels on snacks more carefully. A recent study conducted by Britain’s Food Standards Agency (their version of the FDA) found that seven dyes could affect children’s intelligence by up to five IQ points! When reading Arizona food labels check for Yellow #5, Yellow #6, and Red #40. In fact, Red #40 is banned in several European countries.

Red #40 is banned in several European countries.

My kids love dried apricots, raisins, sliced apples with sunflower seed butter, and snap peas. If you would like more information on improving your Phoenix child’s health and nutrition through healthy snacking please contact me today! – Joel Prince

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Arizona Homes

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Arizona Homes

Hello Arizona! Phoenix parents do such a great job at keeping their children safe and healthy. They help them with homework, take them to parks and museums, keep up on their well-child visits and immunizations, and feed them healthy well-rounded diets. Here is one more thing parents can do for their children’s health.

Because we live in such a chemical-filled world, any time parents can cut down on the amounts of chemicals used in the home, the better. Here are a few ways to do that using something you probably already have in your pantry: white vinegar.

  • Clean windows with a spray bottle filled with 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and a dab of liquid dish soap. Make sure you label the bottle and keep it out of the reach of children.
  • Clean your drains and pipes with 1 cup baking soda, and 1 cup hot white vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the drain with hot water. The baking soda and vinegar will foam up in the pipes, and clean away debris and germs.
  • Deodorize your home by boiling a mixture of water and white distilled vinegar in a pot. The vinegar odor will only last a few minutes, and will carry away odors with it.
  • Use distilled white vinegar to keep ants away from your home. Spray undiluted distilled white vinegar along the outside of your home wherever they like to come in.

There are many other natural home cleaning products: just search the internet! Good luck Tuscon, AZ parents – you are wonderful, and so are your children!

4 Benefits Of Arizona Skate Parks

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Tuscon, AZ kids shot schedule

Kids love to move, and if given opportunities to participate in activities they enjoy, most will get regular exercise. Phoenix youth who exercise and eat a healthy diet are less likely to be overweight.

If your child likes to skateboard, in-line skate, or ride a scooter, then you should check out the skate parks in the area. While no activity involving wheels is completely risk-free, skate parks have several advantages.

1. Skate parks provide an area away from moving vehicles.
2. No one should ever skate or ride a scooter alone, so the communal nature of a skate park is a built-in safety feature.
3. Skating in business and public areas is usually prohibited because of safety hazards and the damage that results from skating on stairs, ledges, handrails, and other structures.
4. Skate park features are designed by professionals, unlike homemade jumps, half pipes, ramps, and rails.

Children using Phoenix area skate parks should be familiar with and abide by all posted rules. In addition, participants should wear helmets and other protective gear.

My name is Joel Prince and I am passionate about kids health in Tuscon, AZ. I want to help Phoenix area families discover outdoor activities that provide a fun way to exercise.

I sell Active Drink. If you would like to learn more about this residual income opportunity, please contact me at (425) 941-9673.

3 Tips For Improving Phoenix Kids’ Attention Spans

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Tuscon, AZ immunization schedule

Hello Arizona parents! Today in the Phoenix 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 Tuscon, AZ.

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 Spokane, WA, Seattle, WA, and Tuscon, AZ 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 Phoenix 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 Joel Prince and I am passionate about helping Arizona 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 Phoenix home business that promotes Active Drink.

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help Phoenix Kids Fall Asleep

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help Phoenix Kids Fall Asleep

Tuscon, AZ parents know that sleep is important for their child’s health. If your Phoenix child has a hard time falling asleep, you may want to try a bedtime snack. Well-chosen evening snacks can help ease the transition to sleep.

Eating too much before bedtime is never a good idea for anyone, but a small snack may be just the ticket to dreamland for little ones in Tuscon, AZ. Foods containing the amino acid tryptophan are a natural sleep aid, especially if they are coupled with carbohydrates, which help make tryptophan more available to the brain.

Bedtime foods you can purchase at your local Phoenix grocer include soy milk, dairy products, nuts, seeds, and legumes, such as lentils or chick peas. These foods coupled with a healthy carbohydrate make the perfect bedtime snack. Your Phoenix kiddos will be visiting the sandman before you know it.

Try a glass of soy milk with a few whole grain crackers or string cheese and apple slices. Low-fat cottage cheese with pineapple helps my munchkins fall asleep.

Old-School Snacks For Phoenix Kids

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Tuscon, AZ Kids

What does it take to make a healthy snack? The aisles at every Tuscon, AZ, Seattle, WA, and Spokane, WA grocery store are lined with packages that claim to be healthy and to contain the newest, most exciting vitamin or mineral. But is that really what makes a snack healthy?

Chances are that the answer is no. A lot of the foods that make healthy snacks are not the ones that you find packaged in the middle of the supermarket. Rather, they are what we would consider plain old food.

Plain old food has the advantage of being unprocessed and free of chemicals and preservatives. So, let’s take a look at these seemingly boring snack ingredients.

Cheese is a real protein powerhouse for your kids, so a little goes a long way. For a fun twist, try using cookie cutters to make shapes that your kids will love to gobble up!

Peanut butter and childhood go together like, well, peanut butter and jelly. Ants on a log, peanut butter spread on celery with raisins is always a fun treat. If your child has peanut allergies, you can always substitute almond butter in most recipes.

Low-fat yogurt is probably a favorite of your child’s already, but this versatile source of calcium has plenty of tricks up its sleeves. Try adding berries, or something crunchy like granola or whole-grain cereal. And, in the hot summer months, a yogurt pop can really hit the spot.

The humble egg isn’t just for breakfast anymore. Hard-boiled eggs kept in the fridge might be one of the most convenient ways to enjoy this high-protein snack.

As you can see, the secret to children’s nutrition might just be that there is no secret at all. Find real food, make it into a snack, and ignore the claims made by processed, pre-packaged food.

Hi. My name is Joel Prince and I am passionate about kids health in Tuscon, AZ. I want to help parents in and around Phoenix to raise healthy, happy children. One way I do this by discussing important issues in my Children’s Health Blog, such as childhood obesity in Spokane, WA, immunization schedules, and safety.

How Does Nature Make Tuscon, AZ Kids Happier?

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Tuscon, AZ kids shot schedule

Hello Phoenix parents! Welcome the the Phoenix 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 Spokane, WA 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 Seattle, WA 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 Phoenix outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!

4 Things Your Phoenix Pediatrician Wants You To Know

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Tuscon, AZ Kids Vitamins

The health of their children is a top priority for parents in the Tuscon, AZ, Seattle, WA, and Spokane, WA areas, and that’s why having a good relationship with your child’s pediatrician is important. From well-child check-ups to children’s immunizations to flu shots, these healthcare providers are there when parents need them.

Today in the Phoenix Children’s Health Blog, we want to give you a look into some of the issues facing pediatricians, especially those issues that they may have difficulty discussing with parents.

1. A cold is a cold is a cold, even if they call it something different. There are lots of names for the common cold, like “viral rhinosinusitis” or “purulent rhinitis”. They might sound fancy, but if your kids has it, it really just means they have a cold. Many pediatricians use these terms so parents don’t feel like their being sent away from the office with an overly-simple diagnosis.

2. Old wives’ tales and internet health sites are no substitutes for professional medical advice! There are many rumors that have no scientific basis, but some patients insist on bringing their child in because an older member of the family noticed something (think green snot or ear tugging). Also, while the internet is filled with great information, it is also teeming with sensationalized and nonscientific sites that can be downright dangerous. Pediatricians just want parents to be safe and well-informed when choosing how to treat their child.

3. Fevers are scary, but for children over 3 months old, there is no magic number where a fever becomes dangerous. However, accompanying symptoms like lethargy, rash, or inconsolable crying are cause for concern.

4. Scheduling is not an exact science.
No one likes to camp out in the waiting room, but, once in a while, a patient requires a little extra care, and this can throw the schedule off for the day. However, one day that patient may be your child, and you’ll want that schedule-ruining extra care as well.

My name is Joel Prince and I want to help Phoenix families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity are often on my mind. I am the owner of a direct sales Phoenix area home business that sells Active Drink.

Nutrition for Phoenix children

Hi! My name is Joel Prince of Phoenix. I own a home based business that sells Active Drink. I am passionate about helping Tuscon, AZ, Seattle, WA, and Spokane, WA 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 Phoenix 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!

If you would like to discuss any children’s health issues, or if you would like to know more about my home business and the Active Drink that I sell, please feel free to give me a call at (425) 941-9673.

3 Easy Ways For Phoenix Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

Tuscon, AZ kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Tuscon, AZ, Seattle, WA, and Spokane, WA 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.
