Allergies. Obesity. And Asthma. Children are at risk for those health problems, and others, if they don’t eat properly. As a parent, you might feel you’re fighting a losing battle. TV commercials push fast food, sugary soft drinks, candy and junk food with empty calories–the same food your children’s friends are eating.
You CAN teach children healthy eating habits and make it fun. We’re here to help.
First, involve them. Ask for their input in menu planning. What kinds of fruits and vegetables do they like best? Incorporate those into meals and snack time. You can also let children help you cut food coupons from newspapers and magazines. Steer them away from packaged food with lots of additives and TOWARD low-fat, low-sugar items like a box of oatmeal or rice.
Another way to involve them is to search for recipes in cookbooks and on the Internet. Ask your children what foods they like best, and try to find recipes that include their favorites.
Shop together. Drive home the point, again and again, that the best food to make themstrong and healthy is usually located on the outer aisles. Let them help you set the table. And whenever possible, involve them in cleaning up.
Second, help kids identify healthy foods. Offer variety. If they’ve never tasted a mangoor guava, try it and see how they respond. Offer washed and “ready to pick” fruits andvegetables in the refrigerator–great for a quick snack. Provide whole-grain cookies,cereals, crackers and bread for fiber. Fix snacks such as turkey sandwiches, cheese and crackers, yogurt and fruit, and broccoli and dip. Keep reintroducing healthy foods.
Third, “Teach Them Show Them” nutrition books at the library and let them choose which ones to borrow. Read them together. Talk about nutrition and why it’s important. Then get crayons and paper, or colored pencils,and color together. Ask your child to draw a “vegetable person” like Bridget Banana, one of Quality Catering’s Healthy Heroes. Show your kids you’re excited to learn alongwith them. Take the kids to our website at QualityCateringforKids and let them meet our 11 other “Healthy Heroes” like Ben Broccoli , Carol Carrot and Owen Orange.
They’re all in the lesson plans that we’ve made available to teachers and parents, right at our website. Another fun way for your kids to learn.
And lots of people have been asking me about this…
So without further ado….
How to Get Rid of Blackheads
A blackhead is formed when the ducts produced by oil in the sebaceous gland gets clogged with dead skin cells. There are many ways of removing blackheads. However, not all are safe and effective but rather are harmful methods. The skin has to be removed of excessive oiliness thus it has to be cleansed regularly.
One method of getting rid of blackheads is to make the skin pores open up. The pores can be expanded by placing a hot towel over the face. Another option is to steam the face by taking a bowl of hot water and covering your head along with the bowl with a towel or sheet. The face will be held close to the bowl while bending over the bowl. The pores of the skin will expand effectively which will get rick of blackheads.
Getting rid of blackheads is easy if you just follow the steps in removing these blackheads.
Here is a great video on this subject:
Blackheads vs. Whiteheads
The topic of acne is closely related with blackheads and whiteheads. However, there is a great difference between blackheads and whiteheads.
Whiteheads and blackheads are together called as comedones. A comedone is a sebaceous follicle that is plugged and filled with dead cells and sebum. A blackhead is the open comedone that has a blackish appearance while a blocked comedone that has a small white colored bump on the skin is a whitehead.
It is not recommended that whiteheads and blackheads be squeezed as this will cause skin infection. Permanent scarring can even occur.
One’s skin can be removed by excess dead skin by washing the face by lukewarm water and mild soap. Whatever the dermatologist prescribes should be used on the face. The skin should be treated mildly and not harshly. One needs to be patient in acne treatment as being in a hurry can cause further harm and increase inflammation.
I spend alot of time on Youtube. Too much time actually if I am going to be honest. I just love randomly looking at videos of stupid people doing stupid stuff. It is actually quite addicting! But exercises are something which are not stupid for sure, and I have found lots of good ones by searching for how to get rid of face fat. Doing this search has allowed me to find lots of cool facial exercises that I have never tried before.
Most of the exercises only take a few minutes to do, and in total I only spend about fifteen minutes per day doing them. I do feel a little silly when I do them to tell you the truth, but so far they have been working. I even told my mother about them and she admitted to using them as well, but she said it was years ago and they were a bit different then.
When I was a kid, I wanted to lose weight. So what did I do? I joined a gym and lifted weights. I also did alot of swimming and jogging. (Check out this page for a cool program on swimming.) OK I was not necessarily a kid, I was twenty years old. But I can tell you that it worked. I worked very hard and the weight starting coming off. Since then I have been able to keep this weight off and it has not been a problem for me since then.
Here is a cool video on swimming for beginners, and is a great way to lose that extra weight in your face:
However recently things have been changing for me. My face seems to look droopy, the skin in my neck is falling and my cheeks are getting bigger. I guess it is because I’m getting older. When I asked around for ideas on how to get rid of face fats I just got alot of blank stares.
So I started doing face exercises and changed my diet plan and the changes seem to be working thus far. My friends think I am crazy, but when I tell them about the face exercises they are starting to understand why I am doing them.
If you want to take complete care of yourself, then do not ignore the face and only concentrate on the body. The face is the first thing people see when they meet you. Even if you have the best body in the world, if your face is subpar then you just are not looking your best! Everyone knows about body exercises. But do you know there are exercises for your face?
Face exercises are good for those wondering how to lose face fat and how to get rid of a double chin. These exercises work all of the muscles in your face, which actually add up to over 50 muscles altogether! Not many people realize that there are this many muscles in your face. But if you think about it, your face is able to make so many expressions it only makes sense that there are plenty of muscles that allow you to do so
