Keeping your kids healthy this Summer
July 2017
                                 Fun in the Sun-Don't forget the Sunscreen!!

 

Teach your kids healthy eating habits:

1. Get your kids involved:  If you involve your kids in the planning of meals, shopping for the groceries, and preparing the food, they will become invested in the process and more likely to eat what is put in front of them.

2. Educate your kids & teach healthy eating habits early: Teach kids where their food comes from. Take them to a local farmer's market so they can meet the people who grow their food. Visit a dairy farm, take them out to pick fresh berries, or even have them help p lant tomatoes and melons in a garden, this may tempt a child to try the fruits of their labor.

3. Have healthy snacks available:  If you stock the kitchen exclusively with healthy treats, children will eat them.  Also make sure you have healthy snacks for when you are on the run with your kids.  Good choices include sliced apples, carrot sticks, whole grain crackers, light popcorn, raisins and water bottles.  Teach your kids that a snack is healthy, a treat is for a special occasion. Kids like choices at snack time too, so consider packing an insulated lunch bag full of good snacks so they can make their own smart choices (and you can avoid hearing "I don't want THAT!").

4. Drinking their servings:  Remember that your child doesn't have to just eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day they can also drink them. Smoothies and mixed fruit drinks  can be a fun way to introduce new fruits, just look for one with no added sugars!

5. Be a role model: Remember children learn by example and they typically want what is on your plate; l etting your child see you eat a fresh salad rather a burger and fries may encourage them to do the same.

6. Don't give up:  Studies show that most children need multiple exposures (between 5 and 10) to try new foods. This doesn't mean that showing your child the same broccoli or cantaloupe five nights in a row will win them over, but rather to suggest that you shouldn't give up the first time they reject something.
 


Keeping your kids active this summer:

1. Turn off the electronics:  Limit the amount of time your child is able to us electronics and when they are allowed to use them, chose educational options.

2. Instruct by showing, not telling: Focus on showing your child how to do what you want them to do and they will be mirroring your actions in no time!

3. Make a play date with friends: When your child has a buddy to play with, it makes being active easier and more fun!

4. Focus on physical:  Sign your child up for local recreational or sports programs. Churches, community centers and schools usually host events throughout the summer. Let your child choose what interests them.

5. Take a field trip every now and then: Visit a local playground, splash pad, beach, zoo, science museum, bounce adventure park, etc.  This will get them walking, running, learning, interacting and all in all, just having a great time!

6. Keep the focus on FUN: Go for a family bike ride, for a walk, play frisbee, mini-golf, fly a kite, go bowling, etc.  You can even make cleaning the house and running errands fun for kids, just figure out how to turn it into a game!




Fun in the Sun- Don't forget the sunscreen!!:

Who should use sunscreen?

Anyone over the age of six months should use a sunscreen. 
Children under the age of six months should not be exposed to the sun, since their skin is highly sensitive to the chemical ingredients in sunscreen as well as to the sun's rays. Shade and protective clothing are the best ways to protect infants from the sun.


Broad-spectrum sunscreens protect the skin from both UVA and UVB rays.  Ultraviolet A (UVA) is the longer wave UV ray that causes lasting skin damage, skin aging, and can cause skin cancer. Ultraviolet B (UVB) is the shorter wave UV ray that causes sunburns, skin damage, and can cause skin cancer.

What is SPF? 

S un Protection Factor  - is a measure of a sunscreen's ability to prevent UVB from damaging the skin.

Use this formula to figure out the appropriate SPF for you: "SPF Number x Time to Burn without Protection = Time to Burn with Protection". For example: SPF 15 x 10 minutes = 150 minutes of protection.

Another way to look at it is in terms of percentages: SPF 15 filters out approximately 93 percent of all incoming UVB rays. SPF 30 keeps out 97 percent and SPF 50 keeps out 98 percent. As you can see, no sunscreen can block all UV rays. 

But there are problems with the SPF model: First, no sunscreen, regardless of strength, should be expected to stay effective longer than two hours without reapplication. Second, "reddening" of the skin is a reaction to UVB rays alone and tells you little about what UVA damage you may be getting. Plenty of damage can be done without the red flag of sunburn being raised.

Summer Fun without the chemicals!

DIY Sunblock with Essential Oils:

2 Tablespoons V-6 oil
1 teaspoon beeswax
1 1/2 teaspoons zinc oxide powder 
1/4 teaspoon sulferzyme powder
20 drops Carrot seed oil
10 drops Lavender oil
8 drops Frankincense oil

Melt beeswax in a double burner (do not boil). Add in the V-6 and zinc and mix well. Mix in oils until fully incorporated and quickly pour into containers before it cools. Store it in an airtight jar and refrigerate to help it fully set.  You can take it out of the fridge 10-15 minutes before applying.  Apply 15-20 minutes before going out in the sun, rub into skin well.
