4 Things Your West Palm Beach Pediatrician Wants You To Know

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Wellington Kids Vitamins

The health of their children is a top priority for parents in the Wellington, Jupiter, and DelRay 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 West Palm Beach 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.

4 Critical Playground Rules For West Palm Beach Kids

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Nutrition for West Palm Beach children

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

First, in the hot Florida 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 West Palm Beach 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 DelRay. Just make sure children remove their helmets as well as anything else that is around their necks (like hoodies with drawstrings).

Do You Know Your West Palm Beach Child’s BMI?

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

Wellington Kids Vitamins

Because of widespread health issues such as childhood obesity in DelRay, there has been a lot of discussion about BMI or Body Mass Index. However, some parents in the Wellington and Jupiter 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 West Palm Beach 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 Wellington parents and pediatricians know if a child’s weight is appropriate.

If your West Palm Beach 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 Wellington, Jupiter, and DelRay parents establish healthy habits. My name is Douglas Mollo and I am the owner of my own West Palm Beach home business that sells Cookies.

Hidden Sugar In Wellington Kid’s Snacks

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Hidden Sugar In Wellington Kid's Snacks Excessive sugar is a serious health threat for Wellington children. Do you know how much sugar your West Palm Beach son or daughter is really consuming? I am children’s nutrition advocate Douglas Mollo.

Here are some popular West Palm Beach kid’s snacks with more sugar than I realized:

Yogurt covered raisins
Fruit Roll-ups, Gushers, and Fruit By The Foot
Quaker Rice Cakes
Yoplait yogurt
Gogurt
Juice drinks: Capri Sun, Minute Maid
Flavored milk

The next time you and your kids are shopping for snacks at your Wellington grocery store, West Palm Beach convenience store,  or Jupiter ball park snack bar, read the labels. Sugar content varies among brands.

Limiting the amount of sugar in your Wellington child’s diet is an important step toward better lifelong eating and oral health. To hear about another great way to improve your child’s nutrition in Florida, call me today!

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

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Wellington Kids Health

Healthy West Palm Beach area children don’t spend too much time sitting around. They keep busy with active play and West Palm Beach 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 DelRay or Wellington 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.

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

My name is Douglas Mollo and I am very interested in kids health in Wellington. I am the owner of my own West Palm Beach area home business that sells Cookies.

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help West Palm Beach Kids Fall Asleep

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help West Palm Beach Kids Fall Asleep

Wellington parents know that sleep is important for their child’s health. If your West Palm Beach 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 Wellington. 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 West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach 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.

I am a local Nuggets representative and a children’s health advocate. If you live in West Palm Beach, Wellington, or Jupiter and would like to learn more about children’s health contact me today!
