Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Florida Homes

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Florida Homes

Hello Florida! West Palm Beach 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 Wellington parents – you are wonderful, and so are your children!

3 Ways To Cut Your Kids’ Sugar Intake In DelRay

3 Ways To Cut Your Kids' Sugar Intake In DelRay

If your DelRay children are like mine, they love sweets. It seems like it takes a few years for children to appreciate flavors more sophisticated than Hubba Bubba and Fruity Pebbles. If my kids were in charge of the grocery list, we would eat popsicles for breakfast and gummy bears for dinner.

If you are trying to wean your kids (or yourself) off sugar, I suggest you reduce it in phases. Radical changes rarely succeed for DelRay children.

Here are 3 ways to reduce the sugar in your kid’s diets.

1) Drink less soda: they are loaded with sugar and empty calories.
2) Use whole grains: complex carbs provide long-term energy. Brown rice, whole wheat bread, and whole-grain pasta are all readily available at DelRay grocery stores.
3) Substitute natural sweeteners like stevia, honey, and 100% fruit juice. The more subtle sweetness provided by natural sweeteners helps taste buds adjust gradually to less sugar.

Xocai offers many low-glycemic healthy chocolate products that kids love. See http://www.mxicorp.com/ for more information.

Check back here next week for more timely tips on improving your children’s health or call 561-662-8420 today. Here’s to a healthy week!

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In DelRay

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In DelRay

Hello, welcome to my DelRay children’s health and nutrition blog. Today’s topic is teen prescription drug abuse.

Most DelRay teens will be offered an illegal prescription medication at one time or another. They are sold at Florida high schools and passed out at teen ‘pharm’ parties. Florida parents should realize that no child is immune. Here are some tips for DelRay parents from Better Medicine: 1

Start talking about the dangers when they’re preteens. Speak early, often, and clearly.
Stay involved in your child’s life.
Emphasize how misusing medication can destroy relationships and keep him or her from achieving goals, such as getting into a certain college or landing a future job.
Teach your child to say ‘no’ firmly but kindly, give a reason, then change the subject or leave the situation.
Monitor your child’s internet usage for signs of prescription drug involvement.1

DelRay parents should keep their medications locked away. It is also important to realize that children watch how their mother and father use prescription medications. I encourage all West Palm Beach parents to use prescription meds safely and legally.

Where Will Your DelRay Home Business Take You?

Where Will Your DelRay Home Business Take You?

Hello! Welcome to today’s DelRay home based business article. When you start a home based business or online store in DelRay, you never know where it may take you.

Do you think Amazon founder Jeff Bezos ever dreamed his small web-based bookstore would grow into the largest online retailer? Bezos started his enterprise in the garage of his home in Bellevue, Washington.

All types of businesses are started in DelRay homes: manufacturing, accounting, day spas, catering, music/dance instruction, personal training, and a whole bunch of online retailers and service providers.

Even during times of economic stagnation, ambitious DelRay entrepreneurs build lucrative businesses from scratch. All of the top earning West Palm Beach businesses started somewhere. In many cases that ‘somewhere’ was a garage, spare room, or a laptop on the kitchen counter.

Dream big with the Nuggets low start-up business opportunity in DelRay.

Fresh Ideas For Healthy Meal Planning In Florida

Fresh Ideas For Healthy Meal Planning In Florida

Florida children’s nutrition experts say that family mealtime is a must for Jupiter parents who want to know what their children are eating and stay on top of their kids’ nutritional needs. But with busy schedules, allergies, and different food preferences, planning meals can be a challenge. Here are some fresh ideas:

To simplify things, first make a list of all the foods your kids enjoy, healthy and non-healthy included. Study this list to discover ingredient combinations or cooking techniques they prefer. Then find recipes for healthy meal makeovers.

Make your own frozen meals. Just double or triple the recipe of a favorite casserole dish and store the extras in the freezer so the next long day or unscheduled event won’t tempt you to eat DelRay drive-up or unhealthy microwaveable convenience meals.

If members of your family have allergies or are super-particular, make a large plain meal and have lots of healthy toppings available so everyone can customize their own meal. This works great for tacos, pizza, sandwiches, salads and baked potatoes.

Another time-saving tip for DelRay parents: cook enough hamburger, steak, or chicken breasts for two or three different meals during the week.

Healthy Habits For Kids In West Palm Beach

Healthy Habits For Kids In West Palm Beach

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 DelRay 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 West Palm Beach 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 Jupiter and Wellington 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 Douglas Mollo and I want to help West Palm Beach families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as childhood obesity in DelRay, immunizations, and vitamins are important to me. I am the owner of my own West Palm Beach home business that sells Cookies. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://www.Good4uSweets.com or give me a call at 561-662-8420.

Prevent Classroom Sickness In Wellington

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Prevent Classroom Sickness In Wellington

To curb the spread of viruses, lice, and other kid’s health threats in Wellington 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. Wellington 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.

Wellington children who know and practice these safeguards will be prepared when the next H1N1 threat visits West Palm Beach.

I promote children’s health issues in West Palm Beach. For information on my health business, contact me today.
