Enebakk Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

Enebakk Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

One of the best things you can do for your Enebakk kids is to help them love plant foods. Kids who are exposed to a wide variety of live foods when they are young are more likely to continue eating them when they are grown.

Why are plant foods so important for Enebakk families?

Plant-based foods have vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and protein. Live foods are generally low-fat, low-sodium, and, if unprocessed, have less toxins than processed foods.

Let’s help our Enebakk kids eat better than most of us Enebakk adults have eaten for the past three generations.

There is more to a plant-based diet than broccoli and carrots. Here are some plant-based meal and snack ideas to inspire you:

  • Legumes: beans, peas, lentils (hummus, black bean burritos, vegetarian chile)
  • Nuts and seeds: pecans, almonds, walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, (sunflower seeds on salads, granola with almonds, trail mix with nuts instead of M&Ms)
  • Whole grains: barley, spelt, millet, rye, quinoa, brown rice (spelt bread, whole wheat pasta, stir-fry with brown rice)
  • Fresh and dried fruit: bananas, berries, citrus, melons (blueberry barley pancakes, fruit plate with yogurt-honey dip, dried apricots in brown bag lunches)
  • Veggies: (mashed sweet potatoes, spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette, pizza with green pepper, mushrooms and onion instead of pepperoni)

One of my favorite foods is made from the super-nutritious cacao plant. It is high in antioxidants and taste like candy. To try X-meal, contact me today.

3 Tips For Improving Ski Kids’ Attention Spans

Fredrikstad immunization schedule

Hello Akershus parents! Today in the Ski 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 Fredrikstad.

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 Enebakk, Moss, and Fredrikstad 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 Oslo 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 Anna Malinowski and I am passionate about helping Akershus 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 Ski home business that promotes X power squares.

Nutrition for Oslo children

Hi! My name is Anna Malinowski of Ski. I own a home based business that sells X power squares. I am passionate about helping Fredrikstad, Moss, and Enebakk 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.

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!

4 Things Your Ski Pediatrician Wants You To Know

Fredrikstad Kids Vitamins

The health of their children is a top priority for parents in the Fredrikstad, Moss, and Enebakk 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 Ski 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 Anna Malinowski and I want to help Oslo 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 Oslo area home business that sells X power squares.

3 Easy Ways For Ski Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Fredrikstad kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Fredrikstad, Moss, and Enebakk 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.

Food Safety Tips For Moss Parents

Fredrikstad Kids Health

Parents in the Oslo and Enebakk area who want to give their children proper nutrition usually start by buying more fresh, unprocessed food. This is always a step in the right direction for your children’s health, but you should be aware of how long these foods stay fresh and safe to eat.

After picking up produce at your local Fredrikstad or Ski grocery store, make sure you know the best way to store the various types of fruits and vegetables that your family enjoys.

Check the expiration dates on your dairy products. Store them in the coolest parts of your fridge, never in the door. It’s also a good idea to keep a cooler bag in your car so you can keep these items cool as you drive home from your Enebakk grocer or Oslo area farmer’s market.

Be sure to rinse all produce well before eating. Meat should also be kept cold until you are ready to cook it. It should be kept in the fridge and used within 2 or 3 days. Cooked meat should be kept no longer than 4 days in the fridge. If your kids like healthy leftovers that include meat, make sure you eat them within the next day or two, or freeze for later use.

Fresh food is usually far more nutritious than pre-packaged convenience items, so don’t be afraid of fresh food. Making a meal plan before you shop helps ensure that you will use all of the fresh ingredients before they go bad.

Old-School Snacks For Oslo Kids

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Fredrikstad Kids

What does it take to make a healthy snack? The aisles at every Fredrikstad, Moss, and Enebakk 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.

Music is Magic for Ski Kids

Fredrikstad immunization schedule

Parents in and around Ski 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 Enebakk, Moss, and Fredrikstad parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Oslo 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 Ski community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with Enebakk, Moss, and Fredrikstad libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

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

“‘Good Job, Bobby! Have Some Saturated Fat!'”

'Good Job, Bobby! Have Some Saturated Fat!' Do your children’s Oslo school teachers reward good behavior with candy or cookies? Don’t you think it’s a little strange to reward Ski children with something that is bad for them?

Using unhealthy food as a token of merit undermines Oslo nutrition education and encourages over-consumption of foods high in added sugar and fat. It can also set a precedent for emotional eating, prompting Akershus kids to eat when they’re not really hungry.

According to a recent study in The Journal of the American Medical Association, over the past three decades, the childhood obesity rate has more than doubled for preschool age children and tripled for children aged 6-11 years. In short, about 20 percent of children are obese. Our children here in Fredrikstad, Moss, and Enebakk are no exception.

As a child health advocate based in Ski, I encourage all Akershus parents to use non-food alternatives when rewarding good behavior.

 

I reward my kids with a trip to the Fredrikstad library or more outside play time. Food is used to fuel our bodies, not to reward us for doing things we should be doing anyway.

When my kids have had an active day at their favorite Fredrikstad park we refuel with nuts and blueberries, which are loaded with antioxidants. Another favorite snack we like to eat to recharge is made from the cacao plant and is also packed with antioxidants.

For more information about this delicious Oslo kid-friendly snack and other children’s favorites, please contact me today. Thanks for visiting my Ski children’s nutrition blog.

How Does Nature Make Fredrikstad Kids Happier?

Fredrikstad kids shot schedule

Hello Ski parents! Welcome the the Oslo 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 Enebakk 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 Moss 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 Ski outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!
