Is My Nevada Baby Ready For Solids?

Is My Nevada Baby Ready For Solids?

Although Phoenix pediatricians generally recommend starting infants on solid foods when they are around six months of age, there are important developmental milestones that must be reached before your baby can take this step.

Even if an infant’s digestive system is ready for solid food, the baby must be able to safely swallow it. A baby should be able to sit with assistance but hold his or head up on their own. Without head and neck control, eating solids is difficult and dangerous. Many Phoenix pediatricians also advise parents to wait until an infant shows interest in what other family members are eating.

If you are unsure if your infant is ready for solid food, check with your Phoenix pediatrician. Remember that for the first year your baby’s nutrition will still come primarily from breast milk or formula.

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Nevada Homes

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Nevada Homes

Hello Nevada! Henderson 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 Phoenix parents – you are wonderful, and so are your children!

Las Vegas Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Las Vegas Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Hello! Welcome to the Las Vegas children’s health blog. I am Chocoholic Karin Peterson. At this site, I publish information on nutrition and health issues that affect Las Vegas children and families. My goal is to improve the state of children’s health in the Henderson area.

Despite decades of increased awareness in Henderson about the dangers of a distorted body image and extreme dieting, eating disorders are still a serious problem.

A recent American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) study revealed disturbing facts about eating disorders among children.1 According to the report, 0.5 percent of teenage girls in the country are estimated to have anorexia. The bulimia rate among adolescent girls is estimated at more than double that at 1 to 2 percent. Though anorexia and bulimia are usually thought of as a problem for adolescents, Las Vegas parents should be aware that even young Henderson children are at risk, as well as males, though the rates are lower.

Nevada pediatricians can help Las Vegas parents with children affected by an eating disorder. The AAP recommends a combination approach for the treatment of eating disorders in children. Treatment plans usually include nutritional guidance and psychiatric counseling along with the appropriate medical care.

Sneaky Veggies For Henderson Kids

Sneaky Veggies For Henderson Kids

Henderson parents: when you put a serving of broccoli or zucchini on your son’s or daughter’s plate, does your kid gobble it down, or stare at it like it’s a pile of alien goo? Well, if the former is true, then you can skip this article. However, I think many families in the 89123 zip code area could use some more veggies for better children’s nutrition in Henderson.

Here are some ideas for Henderson parents who want to sneak more veggies into kids’ diets:

Broccoli: cook the broccoli, blend it up, and put some of it into brownie batter. Sounds strange, I know, but even the pickiest eater won’t detect the added children’s vitamins and minerals.
Zucchini and yellow squash: shred it and add it to pasta sauces or casseroles. Theses veggies have a mild flavor, and won’t detract from the taste of the dish.
Spinach and other dark greens: if you have a high-end blender, you may be able to blend these super healthy greens raw. If not, you can boil them for a few minutes until tender, and then plunge them into ice water. Blend with some frozen fruit and yogurt or tofu for a nutrient-rich smoothie.
Cauliflower: dice it, cook it, and add it to white sauces or cheesy sauces over pasta.

There are many ways Henderson parents and caregivers can add healthy veggies to foods kids already eat. It might take a little more preparation, but Nevada children are worth it!

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Nevada and like to share children’s health and nutrition tips in my blog. If you are looking for low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate products, call me today. I sell Nuggets and Power Squares, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy in Henderson.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies In Las Vegas?

Chocolate Nutrition in Henderson Many Las Vegas people still believe the following fallacy: ‘If it tastes good, it must be bad for you.’ Phoenix folks who have tried Xocai Power Squares or Nuggets know that some health chocolate is delicious. But what about healthy chocolate chip cookies? Achieving perfect cookie texture can be tricky, even when using traditional heart-clogging ingredients. Successful baking requires a degree of precision not necessary in many other types of food preparation.

Xocai figured out how to make a chocolate nutrition cookie with all the necessary elements: correct chip/cookie ratio, satisfying texture, proper sweetness level, and genuine chocolate flavor.

X Powerhouse cookies are loaded with antioxidant chocolate chips, natural sweeteners and (surprise!) fiber. What do Xocai X Powerhouse cookies lack? Refined sugars, trans-fats, chemicals and the guilt factor.

Snacking on X Powerhouse Cookies can help break the cycle of unhealthy dietary habits. You and your family can still experience the great taste and decadence of a snack food without suffering the dangerous health consequences. Xocai is the chocolate nutrition company for Henderson families who are trying to live healthier.

I am Karin Peterson, an independent Las Vegas Xocai distributor. Xocai antioxidant chocolate products are helping my family live healthier. If you eat chocolate regularly, you may want to try Xocai. My phone number is 702-806-0150. I love to share Xocai with Henderson chocolate lovers who want to replace the bad with the good.

Give me a call if you have questions about Xocai dark chocolate or the Xocai Henderson business opportunity.

Xocai Protein Bars for Henderson Body Builders

Henderson Body Builders Many former protein powder users in Las Vegas and Phoenix have switched to bars simply for convenience.

Unwrapping a bar is easier than mixing powders and washing shaker cups. However, some are waiting for the perfect meal-on-the-go that comes in a wrapper. If you are still blending protein shakes because you haven’t found a bar that meets your criteria for muscle building, weight loss and quick energy, your wait is over. Xocai Protein Bars have everything you need in a sports bar plus antioxidants and fiber!

Once you taste a Xocai Protein Bar you may wonder how it can taste like a decadent Swiss chocolate bar without all the refined sugar. Organic agave syrup is the key. The agave syrup we use has a glycemic index of only 27. A glycemic index number is a measure of how a carbohydrate affects blood glucose levels. Carbs with a low glycemic index such as agave help reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and weight gain.

Las Vegas weight lifters, Portland runners, Henderson high-school athletes call or text 702-806-0150 now to order Xocai Protein Bars: The Dark Chocolate Protein Bar. My name is Karin Peterson. I hold healthy chocolate meetings regularly so interested people can taste Xocai healthy chocolate products and learn about Las Vegas direct marketing success.

Relaxation Techniques For Henderson Kids

Relaxation Techniques For Henderson Kids

One of the hardest things for any Las Vegas parent is to watch their kids struggle with life’s difficulties. It’s not always fun and games being a kid, and it is normal even for healthy children to struggle with stress and anxiety–whether from illness, pain, social situations, or academic pressures.

Here are some techniques that Henderson parents can teach their kids to help relieve anxiety and stress. Of course, if parents in the 89123 zip code area feel their child is abnormally stressed or anxious, they can talk about this with their child’s Henderson, Portland, or Phoenix pediatrician.

One technique for stress relief is meditative breathing. Sit comfortably and then concentrate on breathing slowly and deeply, making sure the abdomen is moving, and not only the chest. Count slowly to 3 or 4 as you inhale, and then the same for the exhale. Try to focus all thoughts on breathing–the feel and the sound of it. When other thoughts enter your mind, try to let them float out again like a balloon. This technique helps to relax, and relieves stress and anxiety from the body and mind.

Another useful technique is mindfulness.

With the practice of mindfulness, Henderson parents and children will be able to elicit a relaxed and open response even in the most stressful situations. Mindfulness involves becoming completely aware of every aspect of any experience. Practice in non-stressful situations first–you can even do it while eating dinner. Notice every detail of your food–the feel, the color, the sound, the taste.

Such healthy mindfulness practice can translate this way in a stressful situation: say your child is at his Henderson school and is experiencing anxiety during a test. Practicing mindfulness, your child will notice the anxious feelings (cold and sweaty palms, shallow breathing, etc.), the feel of the paper in his hands, the students around him, etc. As your child notices and acknowledges these things, rather than fearing and avoiding them, they won’t be as frightening. Your child will learn that these things are part of life in Henderson and that they are okay.

Life is a challenge for Henderson parents and kids alike. Las Vegas parents can give valuable tools to their children to help them stay happy, safe, and healthy on this journey of life!

My name is Karin Peterson and kids health in Phoenix is a passion of mine. I am concerned with issues such as vaccinations and childhood obesity in Henderson.

Sweet Business Opportunity For Las Vegas And Beyond!

Sweet Business Opportunity in Las Vegas

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln.

I believe that wholeheartedly. Do you? Are you a determined Las Vegas businessperson who does not let circumstances limit your potential? Are you ready to really make something happen for yourself?

I am Karin Peterson. I am creating my future with Xocai (show-sigh). There is no other business opportunity in Henderson that compares to the Xocai home business opportunity. Xocai Healthy Chocolate with acai berries is a ‘category creator’. How many health home businesses can say that? If you were going to ‘create a category’, could you come up with anything as revolutionary as healthy antioxidant chocolate? And even if you could imagine something as wonderfully radical, could you do what it takes to bring it to market?

Jeanette L. Brooks, Xocai co-founder, made it happen. It wasn’t easy. It took a lot of time, money and trial and error. But now her healthy chocolate business is exploding. You can benefit from her vision and hard work.

My favorite product is Power Squares. It is a hot seller in Phoenix. My Henderson and Portland customers eat chocolate everyday. (Can you relate?) With Xocai, they are replacing the bad with the good. They now eat Xocai antioxidant chocolate in place of the waxy conventional chocolate they used to eat. One Las Vegas Xocai lover said recently, “It is strange to eat chocolate without the ever-present guilt I used to feel. Now I don’t need to break my habit. The chocolate monkey is off my back.”

My Xocai team is called TeamX88. We are having a sweet time sharing weight-loss chocolate with our Las Vegas friends, family, neighbors and co-workers in Phoenix and Portland. (It is amazing how many new friends you make when you give out chocolate samples.) Come join us to create your own bright future!

Henderson Kid’s Health: What Is ‘Failure To Thrive?’

Henderson Kid's Health: What Is 'Failure To Thrive?'

Though Henderson children come in all shapes and sizes and grow at widely varying rates, sometimes an extremely low weight indicates a medical condition called ‘failure to thrive.’

This general term is used for children who weigh significantly less than other healthy Henderson kids their age.

According to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, in cases of children with failure to thrive the rate of weight and height gain ‘may be more important than actual measurements.’ 1

Henderson children in the ‘failure to thrive’ category weigh lower than the 3rd percentile. In addition, their weight is significantly lower than what is considered healthy for their height.

In addition, Henderson kids with failure to thrive usually have delayed development in physical, social, and emotional skills.

In Nevada, failure to thrive can be caused by numerous factors, both physically and environmentally. Henderson parents who are concerned about their child’s development should consult their pediatrician, even if no specific medical symptoms are detected.
