NIH Children’s Check-Up Guidelines In Henderson

NIH Children's Check-Up Guidelines In HendersonAs Nevada parents, we know our children’s health includes physical, mental and social well-being. Most Henderson parents are aware of the essentials in keeping their kids healthy; providing nutritious meals, making sure they get adequate sleep and physical activity, and guaranteeing their safety.

It is also necessary for our Henderson kids to receive regular checkups with their Nevada health care providers. Not only will these visits track your Henderson child’s development, but will aid in averting health problems.

According to the NIH, besides regular checkups, school-age Phoenix and Las Vegas children should also see their Henderson doctor for:

  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Sleep problems or change in behavior
  • Fever higher than 102
  • Rashes or skin infections
  • Frequent sore throats
  • Breathing problems

I would love to share more children’s health information with you. Please call me today!

Henderson Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

Henderson Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

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

4 Ways To Improve Your Child’s Nutrition In Henderson

Phoenix Kids Health

Parents in the Henderson and Portland areas are continually looking for ways to improve their children’s health and well-being. Today in the Las Vegas Kid’s Health Blog, we want to give you four simple ways to do this with children’s nutrition suggestions.

1. Buying healthy snacks for your kids is pretty simple these days. Most Henderson supermarkets are packed with fresh fruit and veggies year-round along with low-fat cheese, nuts, and whole grain crackers. But, as you put those groceries away, remember to consider location, location, location. If your kids can’t find the healthy stuff, they’re not going to eat it. Place fruits at children’s eye-level in the fridge and other healthy snacks at the same height in the pantry.

2. Keep treats treats. When something is given to a child every day (or even two or three times a day!), like candy, it stops being a treat. When it’s time to indulge, make it a special occasion where the family joins in. You could take a trip to one of the great ice cream parlors in Phoenix after a family game night, or stop for milkshakes after an afternoon at the park. Just keep the frequency of these outings low enough that each time it happens, it’s still a treat.

3. Speak up to other Henderson parents about what you want offered to your child. As the snack list for soccer games is passed around, suggest specifying what should be included and what shouldn’t (i.e. orange slices good! doughnuts bad!). Chances are, other parents have been hoping someone would clarify the issue and set some healthy standards.

4. Set a good example. If you’re complaining about the veggies in your meal (or if your spouse is) the kids will follow, and then some.

My name is Karin Peterson and I am very interested in kids health in Phoenix. I am the owner of a Henderson area home business that sells Power Squares. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://mxi.myvoffice.com/karinpeterson or give me a call at 702-806-0150.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Relax In Las Vegas Over a Steamy Cup of Healthy Cocoa

Henderson MLM Secrets There is something special about savoring a steamy cup of cocoa here in Las Vegas. For centuries, Europeans have enjoyed afternoon tea, a ritual that allowed them to relax and spend a few minutes with a friend or family member. You can begin your own tradition of taking a daily ‘hot cocoa‘ break, a time when you slow down and recharge your batteries.

Your hot cocoa break in Portland does not have to weigh you down with fat and high-fructose corn syrup. Xocai Sipping Xocolate tastes too indulgent to be good for you, but it contains the antioxidants and flavonoids found in the other super-healthy Henderson Xocai chocolate products.

Your cocoa break can also be a Henderson ‘health break,’ when you enjoy a drink that boosts your immune system, helps protect you from chronic diseases, and energizes your body and mind.

When would be a good time for you to enjoy Xocai Sipping Xocolate? In the morning when you are going through your emails? While reading the Henderson Sunday paper? When you are snuggling up with a child or grandchild to share a story or movie? While driving to your Henderson office on cold winter mornings?

Perhaps you are burned out on Henderson coffee. Try Xocai Sipping Xocolate for a healthy change of flavor. Xocai Xocolate is the ‘espresso’ of premium hot cocoa.

In our complex, fast-paced world, a daily hot cocoa break is one of life’s simple pleasures. Xocai President Jeanette L. Brooks’ mission is also simple; to promote good health, well-being, and the opportunity for an abundant life through Xocai antioxidant chocolate.

I share Jeanette’s philosophy. If the Xocai message resonates with you, let’s get together. We can talk while sipping the healthiest cocoa in Nevada.

Low Risk Phoenix Home Business

Low Risk Phoenix Home Business

Hi, welcome to my Phoenix home based business blog. This blog is for home business owners in Phoenix and those that are currently weighing their options as they search for the perfect opportunity in Phoenix.  One important factor in my decision to start an online Nuggets store is the low start-up cost.

Starting my Nuggets online store did not wipe out my entire savings account. Many Phoenix home business owners start direct selling businesses on less than $250. For that low fee, you get are able to sell a quality product that has been tested extensively. You are also able to take advantage of thousands of dollars of market research and advertising campaigns.

There is a common perception that Phoenix entrepreneurs are reckless risk-takers who will jeopardize everything they own to start their home business. I don’t think this is necessarily true in most cases. Savvy Phoenix direct sellers take calculated risks while maintaining a strong back-up plan.

So far, I haven’t needed to use my back-up plan, but I have peace of mind knowing that it’s there. You can start a Nuggets business very reasonably. For the exact cost, give me a call today.

Keeping Henderson Kids Healthy In Daycare

Keeping Henderson Kids Healthy In Daycare

keeping-kids-healthyIf you are like most Henderson parents, you do your best to keep your kids healthy. You take them to your Nevada pediatrician for immunizations and vaccinations, teach them good hygiene habits, and try to get them to eat their veggies.

But what about kids in Henderson daycare centers? Who is making sure children wash hands after using the bathroom and cover sneezes and coughs?

When researching 89123 zip code area daycare providers, ask them about their health and safety policies. Do they require that sick children stay home? Do they clean and disinfect tables and play areas? Do they require frequent hand washing?

Parents of children in daycare can do much on their own. They need to keep up-to-date on kids immunizations in Henderson and ensure that their children are eating a wide variety of healthy foods to keep their immune system ready for anything that comes their way.

Even with all Nevada parents and daycare providers do to prevent it, children will get sick. However, some studies have shown that children in daycare actually get less colds when they’re older than children that stay home. When first attending daycare, children may get sick a lot, but after about one year they often build up immunity, and are sick about as often as their stay-at-home counterparts. I guess the old saying is true (at least in this case): what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

My name is Karin Peterson and I promote children’s health in Henderson. I am also the owner of an easy part time Las Vegas home business as a distributor of Power Squares. If you are interested in learning how you can own your own children’s health business, give me a call at 702-806-0150.

Hidden Sugar In Phoenix Kid’s Snacks

Hidden Sugar In Phoenix Kid's Snacks Excessive sugar is a serious health threat for Phoenix children. Do you know how much sugar your Henderson son or daughter is really consuming? I am children’s nutrition advocate Karin Peterson.

Here are some popular Henderson 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 Phoenix grocery store, Henderson convenience store,  or Portland ball park snack bar, read the labels. Sugar content varies among brands.

Limiting the amount of sugar in your Phoenix 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 Nevada, call me today!

“The X Protein Meal Shake Scores 50,000 On ORAC”

Las Vegas Nevada X Protein Meal Shake Do you want to increase the antioxidant potency of your blood? The Xocai X ProteinMeal Shake is one of the most delicious ways to get a powerful boost of Henderson antioxidants.

The Xocai X ProteinMeal shake is a Henderson meal-replacement shake used by Las Vegas and Portland people for general health, weight-loss, as a non-toxic energy drink, and as an immune-booster.

If you are not familiar with antioxidants: here is a short, but by no means comprehensive, list of the potential benefits:

  • Supports Cardiovascular health
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Protects against cellular damage
  • Supports cognitive function

Most people in Las Vegas and Phoenix do not get enough antioxidants. I know you have heard it before: we all need to eat more fruits and veggies. But even if we consume the recommended five servings, we may still not ingest enough antioxidants. The need for antioxidants is even more critical when we are fighting a Portland cold or flu.

The Xocai X ProteinMeal Shake takes the guesswork out of the quest for adequate antioxidants. One serving contains an ORAC score of 50,000. If you replace one meal a day with the Xocai protein shake and eat high antioxidant foods such as berries (blueberries, blackberries, cherries, strawberries), whole grains, broccoli, tomatoes, garlic, spinach, green tea, carrots, and soy–you will be one of the wise few who reach the recommended antioxidant level.

Many of the benefits of increasing antioxidant intake are hard to describe, but I guarantee that you will feel a greater sense of overall vitality-and who knows how many chronic diseases you will avoid?

Health Benefits of Las Vegas…Dirt!

Health Benefits of Las Vegas Dirt!

Most Las Vegas parents know about the health benefits of gardening as a family: spending time outdoors, working together, establishing a connection to the food we eat, better nutrition, and many more.

Something not so well known in Las Vegas is that the dirt itself contains beneficial bacteria that can aid in depression, cognitive functioning, and even in fighting some cancers.

Working with soil in Las Vegas – digging, pulling weeds, harvesting vegetables – exposes Nevada kids and parents to a strain of bacteria called mycobacterium vaccae. Recent research reveals that m. vaccae triggers the release of seratonin, which can elevate mood and reduce stress.

In one study, two groups of mice were fed peanut butter sandwiches before finding their way through a difficult maze. One of the groups had m. vaccae spread on the sandwiches. The mice that ingested the bacteria ran the maze twice as fast and exhibited half as many stress behaviors as the mice that didn’t have the bacteria.

Think of Las Vegas kids in the ‘good ole’ days,’ running around on unpaved roads, playing in meadows, forests, and dirt piles, and half of the time probably bare-foot. It is quite a different childhood than the sanitized version that exists in our society today. Children not only need more time out-of-doors, but they need to get dirty! Let your Las Vegas neighbors hear you yell: ‘Kids, go outside and get dirty!’

Henderson, Portland, and Phoenix parents may do themselves and their children a favor by adding to their kids’ emotional, physical, and intellectual health by letting them play in the dirt!

My name is Karin Peterson and I want to help Las Vegas families raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Henderson concern me. I am the owner of a Henderson area home business that sells Power Squares.

World’s Record in Armenia!

Henderson MLM Scam The world record for the largest chocolate bar was broken on Sept 13, 2010. Guess where? Armenia! The chocolate bar weighed 9702 pounds (4410 kilograms). I don’t know why the location surprised me; chocolate is loved all over the world just as much as here in Las Vegas, but if I hadn’t seen the news story I would have guessed Belgium, Switzerland, Japan or Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The Armenians may have created a two-ton candy bar, but Xocai distributors are selling tons of gourmet healthy chocolate in Phoenix, Portland and Henderson. If you are new to this Las Vegas healthy chocolate blog, let me explain why Xocai is healthy. Xocai chocolate is packed with antioxidants which protect your system from free radicals. There is strong evidence that many chronic illnesses prevalent in Portland are caused by free radical damage. These include arthritis, diabetes, depression, high blood pressure and kidney disease. Free radicals also play a role in several types of cancer.

Xocai proudly displays the Brunswick Lab ORAC score on each Las Vegas healthy chocolate label. The ORAC score is the amount of each type of antioxidant contained in the particular dark chocolate product. Brunswick Laboratories is a non-affiliated commercial lab that measures antioxidants in Henderson health foods and Henderson nutritional supplements.

The Nevada Xocai chocolate collection includes chocolate cookies, solid chocolate, chocolate protein bars, the chocolate weight-loss shake, hot cocoa and a chocolate energy drink.

If you are a Las Vegas chocolate cookie muncher, a Phoenix energy drink pounder, a Portland chocolate protein bar eater, or a Henderson hot cocoa sipper, Xocai has an antioxidant chocolate product for you. If you are interested in selling Xocai antioxidant chocolate in Henderson, contact me today.
