Green Veggies Boost Immunity For Winnipeg Kids

31 Jan

Green Veggies Boost Immunity For Winnipeg Kids

Do your children catch every cold that goes around Winnipeg? Do they regularly have earaches, coughs, or runny noses? Including more green vegetables in their diets could boost kids’ immune systems and help them stay healthy, according to a study in the journal Cell.1

The study found that green vegetables help produce a chemical that is important for a strong immune system. The chemical provides signals to the immune cells in the gut and skin, helping them to function properly.

If your Winnipeg kids are like mine, convincing them to eat more green vegetables is as hard as getting them to clean their rooms. However, Regina parents can find sneaky ways to add more green vegetables to their children’s diets.

My kids love pasta and sauce so I puree spinach into the pasta sauce, disguising the leafy green immune booster. Adding kale to protein smoothies is another way to sneak green vegetables into their tummies.

My name is Karen Petursdottir and I want to improve children’s health in Winnipeg and around Manitoba. I also promote Xobiotic. If you would like more information about Xobiotic or children’s health issues contact me today!

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Arborg Kids

25 Jan

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Arborg Kids

Hello Arborg! Welcome to my children’s health blog. I am a concerned parent and advocate for improved children’s health in the Arborg area.

Today’s topic is energy drinks. Many Arborg teens are under the false impression that energy drinks like Rock Star and Red Bull are similar to sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade.

Energy drinks are completely different from electrolyte replacement drinks and we need to help our children understand the health risks they pose. Energy drinks contain dangerous chemicals that can harm kid’s growing bodies, especially their teeth.

Energy drinks contain citric acid, fruit juices and extracts, sugar, and a dangerous chemical that gives them their bright color. They can damage tooth enamel with prolonged use.

It is important for us Arborg parents to model healthy behavior for our children. If your kids see you guzzle energy drinks, you may want to think about the example you are setting.

I sell child-friendly nutritional products that are enjoyed by healthy Arborg families. To order healthy energy-boosters, visit http://bit.ly/chocolatearticle.

3 Ways To Cut Your Kids’ Sugar Intake In Steinbach

23 Jan

3 Ways To Cut Your Kids' Sugar Intake In Steinbach

If your Steinbach 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 Steinbach 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 Steinbach 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 204-229-0343 today. Here’s to a healthy week!

Is Juicing Better For Regina Kids?

18 Jan

Is Juicing Better For Regina Kids?

Regina health trends come and go and I have recently noticed that the practice of juicing fruits and vegetables has made its way back into the Manitoba children’s nutrition spotlight.

In my experience, I have found that the only Regina parents who have been successful at making their own super-healthy juices over the long term are Regina vegetarians who dedicate a lot of daily time to preparing their food.

Most Regina people who buy an expensive juicer use it for a few weeks before it is relegated to the back shelf of the pantry. Though juicing provides a way to improve your children’s nutrition, it can be time-consuming and expensive. After buying fresh fruits and vegetables, it can cost several dollars to make one glass. Of course, if you have ever tasted fruit and vegetable juices made fresh, you know how delicious they are. For many Regina parents, this is worth every minute and every dollar spent.

Does juicing provide more nutrition than eating whole fruits and vegetables?

I haven’t come across any convincing evidence of this but I do see the value for Regina parents whose kids enjoy drinking juice more than eating whole fruits and vegetable. Mixing vegetables with sweet fruits in a juice can disguise their taste and make them more palatable than the same vegetables raw or cooked.

Regina parents who would like to start juicing should keep in mind the fact that juicing usually removes all the fiber from the fruits and veggies used. A glass of fresh juice also contains a lot of calories!

Exotic Pet Dangers In Steinbach

15 Jan

Exotic Pet Dangers In Steinbach

Does your child have an unusual pet? Many Steinbach parents have bypassed cats and dogs for pets that don’t leave hair, urine, or vomit on the carpet. Ease of care, however, is not always a wise trade-off. Steinbach parents should be aware of the multiple health and safety risks associated with reptiles, rodents, ferrets, primates, and even fish.

The following list of pets and the possible dangers reads like a script for a horror movie:

Fish: infections that can cause lung disease, skin infections, and leprosy
Hamsters: a virus that causes irreversible nerve damage
Hedgehogs: salmonella, yersinia pseudotuberculosis, rabies, and fungal infections
Iguanas, lizards, snakes: salmonella (the animals themselves can tolerate levels of salmonella far greater than humans)
Monkeys and other primates: herpes B (can cause meningitis in humans), tuberculosis, serious injury
Ferrets: these fierce critters with razor-sharp teeth have maimed many children
Prairie dogs: tuleremia (often fatal infection)
African Gambian rats: monkeypox (smallpox-related disease)

The foregoing information was taken from an excellent U.S. News article which can be found at http://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/on-parenting/2008/10/06/8-pets-that-pose-major-health-threats-to-kids

With proper hygiene and safety precautions these pets may not cause problems, but it is important to understand the possible dangers. Consult an expert for comprehensive instructions on caring for any traditional or non-traditional pet.

Thanks for visiting my Steinbach Children’s Health Blog. I sell many nutritional products for Steinbach parents. For information about Nugget and Xobiotic, contact me today.

How Healthy Is Your Regina Community?

08 Jan

How Healthy Is Your Regina Community? Hello Regina residents! Welcome to my children’s health blog, Regina edition. I came across an interesting article in Children’s Health Magazine that got me thinking about children’s health factors in Regina.

Have you considered how your Manitoba community influences your child’s health? In a recent study, independent experts compiled statistics on more than 30 factors that are important to a child’s development including: crime and safety, education, economics, housing, education, cultural attractions, and health.1

Burlington, Vermont came out on top, receiving high marks in all areas of study. Burlington has the fewest fast food restaurants per capita and experts believe this is linked to the low rate of obesity. Clearly, the rate of obesity in Calgary and Arborg is partially due to the ready availability of Big Macs and Whoppers.

While moving to Burlington isn’t necessary for your Regina child to thrive, ask yourself how your own Manitoba neighborhood ranks. If you think it could improve, attend Regina city meetings or make changes within your own home.

You could encourage more participation in sports, start a crime-preventing Regina neighborhood watch group, cook as a family, or seek out Calgary museums and Winnipeg cultural events. Whatever you choose, your children will reap the health benefits of your efforts.

If you want to improve your Regina child’s nutrition, contact me today to learn about a nutritional supplement packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Why Is Arborg Xobiotic MLM A Winner?

04 Jan

best home business for Arborg entrepreneurs A direct marketing, MLM, or party plan business does not employ the same marketing techniques as traditional retail businesses.

To succeed with a new Arborg MLM, you need a product that catches the customer’s attention when they are introduced to it. My Xobiotic business, for example, is suited perfectly for the MLM model because my customers can quickly make a decision based on benefit and opportunity.

Benefit: Customers who are introduced to Xobiotic immediately see how it will improve their life. My customers usually decide on the spot whether or not they want to buy it. They don’t need to go home and sleep on it.

Opportunity: Though Xobiotic is not as cheap as inferior knock-offs, my Arborg prospects understand why it is the best value. If they are in the market for Xobiotic or a similar product, they usually choose Xobiotic.

In traditional marketing, the seller creates marketing campaigns that can take months or years to generate enough sales to turn a profit. Before a new product will sell, (unless it is truly revolutionary like the iPod) they often need to create public awareness. If the customer does not understand how the product will improve their life they will sometimes buy it anyway if the advertising has created a favorable impression.

Arborg network marketing succeeds when the product is high-quality, simple, and unique (or highly superior to the competition). With a winning product like Xobiotic, a direct seller doesn’t need to invest thousands in advertising. The network marketer presents the product to interested Arborg customers either online or in person, and the customer can quickly decide whether or not to buy.

If you can give a brief, straightforward explanation of Xobiotic, you can create streams of residual income with the Xobiotic opportunity. Direct marketing is not rocket science, though I know Arborg direct marketers who earn more than rocket scientists. Contact me today to join my sales team.

Your Winnipeg Pediatrician Knows More Than Your Health App

02 Jan

Your Winnipeg Pediatrician Knows More Than Your Health App

Hello Winnipeg parents! How many times have you discovered a bumpy rash or discolored skin on your child and then consulted online sites to discover what it may be? Maybe your toddler has loose stools every time he eats wheat and after scouring all the web articles about bowel movements you decide he has a gluten intolerance. Or maybe your Manitoba teen has been experiencing headaches so you consult the latest health app on your smart phone.


My name is Karen Petursdottir and I am a local Nugget representative based in Winnipeg. One of my passions is advocating for children’s health in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

I am concerned about the number of Winnipeg parents diagnosing their children’s health using technology instead of consulting their Manitoba pediatrician. I realize it is very convenient to consult online sources when figuring out what may be ailing your child, but you should always check with your physician as well.

Regina parents can’t always be sure that the information gleaned from the web or a health app is reputable. Some online advice might even be dangerous and harm your child. I realize if you are reading my Winnipeg children’s health blog you are doing it online. Don’t get me wrong, there is helpful, user-friendly information regarding your Winnipeg children’s health, but please let your Regina doctor do the diagnosing and prescribing.

Thanks for stopping by! For more information about children’s health or Xobiotic contact me today at 204-229-0343.
