“Watch The Salt, Regina Parents!”

29 Apr

Low Sodium Snack Regina

It’s true for Regina parents and children alike: the more sodium you eat, the more likely you are to develop high blood pressure. But for Manitoba children and teenagers who are overweight, the warning is even more dire.

High blood pressure in childhood usually means a person will also have high blood pressure as an adult, and this can lead to a heightened risk for stroke and heart disease. Every parent in the Winnipeg area who is concerned with children’s nutrition should know some basics about lowering sodium intake.

There is a lot of sodium found in processed foods, restaurant foods, and packaged foods. In fact, this is where most Calgary, Arborg, and Steinbach kids get their sodium, as opposed to getting it from the salt shaker.

Better options for your child’s health are fresh, minimally processed foods and home-cooked meals. Make fruits and veggies available for snacking and get everyone hooked on water as their go-to drink.

Hi, I’m Karen Petursdottir and I am very interested in kids health in Calgary. I am the owner of a Regina area home business that sells Xobiotic. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://bit.ly/chocolatearticle or give me a call at 204-229-0343.

I hope to talk with you soon.

Steinbach Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

24 Apr

Steinbach Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

One of the best things you can do for your Steinbach 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 Steinbach 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 Steinbach kids eat better than most of us Steinbach 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 Nugget, contact me today.

DASH Diet Better For Teens In Winnipeg

22 Apr

DASH Diet Better For Teens In Winnipeg Attention Winnipeg teens: The Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) helps prevent adolescent obesity, according to a recent study.1

The study was published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. The DASH diet includes low-fat dairy, chicken, lean, beef, chicken, nuts, fruits, whole grains, vegetables, and legumes.

Surprisingly, study participants who followed DASH actually ate, on average, 250 more calories than those who ate a typical Winnipeg teen diet: high-fat meats, cheeses, highly processed foods, and fast food meals.

Winnipeg parents who emphasize a ‘calorie deficit’ plan for teen weight loss may want to consider focusing more on the quality of the foods eaten.

I am a small business owner and teen health advocate in Winnipeg. The products I sell promote health for people of all ages. For information on my health and wellness products, contact me today. Thanks for visiting my Winnipeg children’s health blog.

Fresh Ideas For Healthy Meal Planning In Manitoba

15 Apr

Fresh Ideas For Healthy Meal Planning In Manitoba

Manitoba children’s nutrition experts say that family mealtime is a must for Arborg 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 Steinbach 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 Steinbach parents: cook enough hamburger, steak, or chicken breasts for two or three different meals during the week.

For more tips on children’s nutrition in Steinbach or to order a tasty nutritional supplement made from the cacao bean, contact me today!

Choose Optimism In Winnipeg

10 Apr

Winnipeg entrepreneurs wanted

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. – Winston Churchill

My choice to start my own Winnipeg Xobiotic home business and profit in the online marketplace was an informed decision of optimism. I believe my future is full of promise, and I am seeing the results of my leap of faith.

Occasionally, I am reminded that many of my fellow Manitoba workers are worry-aholics. They worry about the economy, they worry about public policy, they worry about their family, they worry about their health. If I read too much news and public commentary, the pessimism, cynicism, and fatalism really bring me down.

I readily admit that there are legitimate concerns for everyone in my home town of Winnipeg. I am not blind to our challenges. However, I choose to believe that collectively and individually we can meet those challenges and prosper. Think of all that we have overcome in the past. Ours is not the only generation faced with complex problems.

I choose to be a optimist. Why? I have taken control of my life by starting my own Nugget online business.

I am moving forward with my goals. My Winnipeg organization is growing, my family is enjoying more time together, my finances are improving, and I am refining my marketing and business management skills.

I have surrounded myself with positive energy, and that makes a huge difference. Optimism breeds optimism.

The atmosphere among the members of my sales team is one of the best fringe benefits of selling Xobiotic in Regina, Manitoba and to the online marketplace.

Are you an optimistic entrepreneur looking for an innovative company to partner with? Are you choosing to believe in a bright future in spite of the general pessimistic mood in Winnipeg and globally? Are you ready to ignore the MLM naysayers? If you are, I invite you to join my Winnipeg sales team and we will succeed together.

“‘Don’t Worry Mom, I’m Saving The World!’”

08 Apr

Dont Worry Mom, Im Saving The World!

Regina parents: do you know what video games your kids are playing? If you haven’t looked through their games for a while, it’s probably time that you did. While playing rock band or sports games can be fun and entertaining, other games can be wrongly influencing your child with graphic violence and course language.

Some Winnipeg parents are unaware that many games have become more questionable when it comes to content. Many companies that sell violent games target their marketing at younger boys even though mature ratings specify seventeen and up. As with most forms of entertainment, the video game industry has continued down a slide of immorality and vulgarity.

Many Regina kids rationalize: ‘Oh, they don’t affect me,’ or, ‘It’s just a shooting game,’ or ‘I’m only killing zombies,’ or, ‘I can turn the blood off.’

I believe that many Regina kids are being desensitized by very graphic portrayals of violence and criminal behavior.
Especially if they play hours on end.

Video games with the mature rating have become as bad or worse then R rated films. It is up to Winnipeg parents to monitor their children’s game purchases and decide what is and what isn’t allowed.

If your son or daughter wants to play questionable games, discuss the content and explain why you object. Show concern for your kids by monitoring their games and limiting their playing time. Remember that video games, like other leisurely pastimes, can interfere with school.

I know some Winnipeg parents who have hidden the gaming controllers because their child kept sneaking improper games into the house.

This Manitoba children’s health blog is dedicated to Regina parents who are trying to raise physically and emotionally healthy children. I own a successful home business that features a unique line of super-healthy kids snacks. To order Nugget, call me today!

3 Tips For Improving Winnipeg Kids’ Attention Spans

04 Apr

Calgary immunization schedule

Hello Manitoba parents! Today in the Winnipeg 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 Calgary.

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 Steinbach, Arborg, and Calgary 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 Regina 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 Karen Petursdottir and I am passionate about helping Manitoba 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 Winnipeg home business that promotes Xobiotic.

Healthy Habits For Kids In Regina

01 Apr

Healthy Habits For Kids In Regina

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 Steinbach 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 Winnipeg 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 Arborg and Calgary 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 Karen Petursdottir and I want to help Winnipeg families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as childhood obesity in Steinbach, immunizations, and vitamins are important to me. I am the owner of my own Winnipeg home business that sells Xobiotic. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://bit.ly/chocolatearticle or give me a call at 204-229-0343.
