3 Tips For Improving Hagersville Kids’ Attention Spans

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Brantford immunization schedule

Hello Ontario parents! Today in the Hagersville 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 Brantford.

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 Caledonia, Simcoe, and Brantford 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 Hamilton 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.

The Hamilton Children’s Health Blog: Your Source For Helpful Information

Nutrition for Hamilton children

Hi! My name is Lesli Rose of Hagersville. I own a home based business that sells Xobiotic. I am passionate about helping Brantford, Simcoe, and Caledonia parents raise happy and healthy kids. That is why I started the Children’s Health Blog. Today I would like to explain what the blog can do for you.

There truly is a wealth of children’s health and wellness information on the internet, but sometimes it can feel a bit like getting a drink from a fire hose. In my blog, I try to distill this information into helpful tips that busy Hamilton parents can really use.

Some of the topics that I am most concerned with are proper nutrition, childhood obesity, and immunization schedules.

Keeping our kids healthy can really be a challenge these days. They seem to be eating more junk food, watching more television, and playing outside less and less. But having healthy children is possible. Visit the blog often to find out how!

If you would like to discuss any children’s health issues, or if you would like to know more about my home business and the Xobiotic that I sell, please feel free to give me a call at 905-768-4446. You can also visit my website at http://www.XoShake.com or email me at Lesli@XoShake.com.

How Does Nature Make Brantford Kids Happier?

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Brantford kids shot schedule

Hello Hagersville parents! Welcome the the Hamilton Kid’s Health Blog. I’m sure most of you know how important it is for your kids health to spend time outdoors each and every day. But it may be even more important than you think.

Just like proper nutrition, immunizations, and vitamins, getting outside is essential for your child’s health.

One reason if for the natural light of the outdoors. This natural light keeps kids alert and healthy. Also, exposure to this light in the morning has a way of setting children’s internal clocks to promote better sleep and earlier bedtimes. (And what Caledonia parent doesn’t want earlier bedtimes?!) Another reason is that nature soothes and comforts children in safe, healthy ways. Studies have shown that children have better ability to focus with increased time outdoors. This will translate to more productive learning time as well as more tranquility in the home. Lastly, outdoor exercise is superior to indoor exercise because it promotes more physically vigorous play like jumping, running, and tumbling. These are all of the things that Simcoe area parents are always telling their kids to stop doing in the living room!

Arrange your family’s schedule so that your children have time to explore the Hagersville outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!

3 Easy Ways For Hagersville Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Brantford kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Brantford, Simcoe, and Caledonia area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even kids.

Antioxidants work their magic by protecting cells from free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines.

Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You might remember from chemistry class that this is the same process that causes an apple slice to turn brown. During oxidation in the cells, DNA can be damaged and changed, which can create the beginnings of disease. A chain reaction of damage can also occur with one damaged molecule becomes a free radical itself and then damages another, and so on.

Now that you know their importance, here are 3 great ways to get more antioxidants into your kids’ diets.

1. Get more veggies on their plates at dinner time and in their lunch boxes

2. Make fruit the snack of choice for your family

3. When buying processed snacks, choose those fortified with antioxidants.

Brantford Kids Vitamins

As Hamilton kids get older, they often are able to help out around the house. Giving kids more responsibility is essential to their health and development, but parents should be sure to know what responsibilities their children are ready for, especially when it comes to working in the yard.

Mowing the lawn is  a weekly chore for many Hamilton families, and most parents are happy to turn this job over to an older child. However, parents should be absolutely sure that their child is old enough (and mature enough) to safely operate the machinery. After all, we’re talking about sharp, motorized blades whirring within arm’s length of our child’s legs and feet. Because these machines are commonplace, many parents forget how dangerous they are. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be at least twelve years of age before using a walk-behind mower and sixteen for ride-on mowers. Of course, this doesn’t mean that every teen is capable of safely mowing the lawn, these are only general guidelines.

Anyone operating a mower should wear sturdy shoes instead of sandals. Remove objects from the lawn such as toys and small rocks before mowing, and insist that your child wear eye protection while they mow.

Regardless of who is cutting the grass at your Brantford, Simcoe, or Hagersville home, young children should not be outside playing while the mower is running.

Mosaic Magic For Hagersville Kids

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Brantford Kids Health

Parents in the Brantford area know how important it is for kids to express themselves artistically. This can be a great boon for a child’s cognitive development as well as their emotional health.

But sometimes the crayons and paper can get a little boring for kids. Luckily, there are lots of easy ways to encourage Simcoe and Caledonia children to create pictures and designs with unique materials and methods.

One of these methods is mosaics. Instead of drawing on paper, cut pieces of colored paper into small pieces. Then, allow your kids to organize the small pieces into a picture or design. Once they’ve completed their picture, give them some glue and have them adhere the mosaic to another complete piece of paper.

And you don’t have to stop at paper. There are plenty of materials that can be made into a mosaic.

A favorite material is dried beans. They are inexpensive, come in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes, and can be found in any Hamilton, Brantford, or Simcoe grocery store. However, remember that dried beans can be a choking hazard, so only use these and other small objects with older children.

My name is Lesli Rose and I am passionate about kids health in Brantford. I want to help Hamilton parents to raise happy, healthy kids.

I own my own Hagersville home based business that sells Xobiotic. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 905-768-4446. We can discuss one of the many children’s health issues that is important to me, such as children’s nutrition and immunizations.

Music is Magic for Hagersville Kids

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Brantford immunization schedule

Parents in and around Hagersville know that healthy kids need proper nutrition, lots of exercise, and well-rounded lives. It’s also safe to say that for all children, a well-rounded life should include music in one form or another.

Studies have shown that music does so much more than simply entertain!

Did you know that children who are involved in some kind of musical training during school perform better in math and science? They also develop better coordination, do better in reading, concentrating, and goal setting. Studies show that students who are involved in a music education program also perform better on their SATs, and are more likely to attend college.

While it’s ideal for Caledonia, Simcoe, and Brantford parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Hamilton area will have great advice on age-appropriate music lessons and teachers for your curious child.

But lessons aren’t the only way! Keep an eye out in the Hagersville community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with Caledonia, Simcoe, and Brantford libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

Keep up the good work, Hagersville parents! Your children are lucky to have you to help them stay safe, healthy, and happy!

3 Critical Toy Safety Rules For Hagersville Parents

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Hamilton childrens vitamins

Between holidays and birthdays, there are plenty of opportunities for gift giving in the Hamilton area, so parents are often on the lookout for toys to give at the next big event. Toys can promote children’s health by stimulating the mind, encouraging imagination, or by getting kids moving around and exercising. But whatever toy you choose, make sure it is safe.

Next time you are browsing the toy aisle of your favorite Brantford, Simcoe, or Caledonia department store, here are a few safety tips to keep in mind.

1. Be sure that you purchase toys that suit the child’s age and abilities. Buying a toy that is meant for older children is a possible safety hazard and should always be avoided.

2. Once you’ve chosen an age-appropriate toy, read all of the enclosed instructions before allowing your kids to play with it.

3. This can be difficult when you have children of differing ages, but you should always make sure that older kids play with toys containing small parts away from younger children, and never allow them to leave the game pieces unattended.

And, speaking of gifts, remember that ribbons and strings should be taken away immediately after a gift or toy is unwrapped.

My name is Lesli Rose and I am passionate about kids health in Brantford. I want to help parents in and around Hamilton to raise healthy children and I do this by discussing important issues in my Children’s Health Blog, such as proper nutrition, immunization schedules, and safety.

I own a home based business here in Hagersville that sells Xobiotic. If you would like to learn more, call me at 905-768-4446 or visit me on the web at http://www.XoShake.com.

Old-School Snacks For Hamilton Kids

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Brantford Kids

What does it take to make a healthy snack? The aisles at every Brantford, Simcoe, and Caledonia grocery store are lined with packages that claim to be healthy and to contain the newest, most exciting vitamin or mineral. But is that really what makes a snack healthy?

Chances are that the answer is no. A lot of the foods that make healthy snacks are not the ones that you find packaged in the middle of the supermarket. Rather, they are what we would consider plain old food.

Plain old food has the advantage of being unprocessed and free of chemicals and preservatives. So, let’s take a look at these seemingly boring snack ingredients.

Cheese is a real protein powerhouse for your kids, so a little goes a long way. For a fun twist, try using cookie cutters to make shapes that your kids will love to gobble up!

Peanut butter and childhood go together like, well, peanut butter and jelly. Ants on a log, peanut butter spread on celery with raisins is always a fun treat. If your child has peanut allergies, you can always substitute almond butter in most recipes.

Low-fat yogurt is probably a favorite of your child’s already, but this versatile source of calcium has plenty of tricks up its sleeves. Try adding berries, or something crunchy like granola or whole-grain cereal. And, in the hot summer months, a yogurt pop can really hit the spot.

The humble egg isn’t just for breakfast anymore. Hard-boiled eggs kept in the fridge might be one of the most convenient ways to enjoy this high-protein snack.

As you can see, the secret to children’s nutrition might just be that there is no secret at all. Find real food, make it into a snack, and ignore the claims made by processed, pre-packaged food.

6 Fun Day-Off-School Activities For Brantford Kids

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Top Home Businesses In Caledonia

Most of the elementary schools in Hamilton seem to have more random days off than in years past. Sometimes these days can catch parents off guard. What to do when your kids are going to be home all day in the middle of the week?! Well, if you didn’t schedule appointments with your Hagersville pediatrician or dentist for a check-up, then try one of these fun ideas to keep your kids active and healthy on their days off.

1. Help them make a treasure hunt, indoors our out, depending on the weather. Once they’re done they can invite friends over to find the treasure (the treasure can be almost anything, since the real prize is following the clues!). When the hunt is over, serve a small picnic for the hungry hunters.

2. Hold an art exhibit. Get out the paints and modeling clay and then let your kids spend the morning creating works of art to display.

3. Healthy kids are active kids, so help them plan a kid Olympics! Give them the freedom to choose how to judge and award medals, then sit back and watch them wear themselves out!

4. Have a family history day. Encourage your kids to write in their journals and ask them to share some favorite family stories that you can record in their own words. If you have stories of your ancestors, this is a good time to share them with your kids.

5. Go visit a local Brantford, Simcoe, or Caledonia museum, historical site, petting zoo, or aquarium. Remember, this is a day to do something with your kids that you’ve always been putting off, so do it!

6. Visit a resident of a local Hamilton convalescent home. Some elderly men and women rarely get visitors. Your kids will feel good about brightening someone’s day. They could bring them flowers or an original piece of art. (See activity number 2.) My name is Lesli Rose and I want to help Hamilton families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Caledonia concern me. I am the owner of a Hamilton area home business that sells Xobiotic.
