Dewey Does tackles obesity with his kids health foundation

The Dewey Does Foundation was invited to participate at the PS36 Annual School Health Fair to share their
obesity program for children
. As usual the Dewey Does mascot made his grand entrance and had the kids excited. There was picture time throughout the entire event. Kids running up and even giving Dewey Does the 110% kid a hug. What made the event an even greater success was the Dewey Does 110% Fitness Dash. The kids lined up one after the other challenging each other to see who would get the most steps in 10 seconds. The challenge became so intense even the parents began joining in and challenging the kids. One father after the other, they kept coming back for more. As Dewey Does cheered them on, they were doing better and better and the scores got higher and higher. Ms. Lillian Deluca, Parent Coordinator of PS 36 and host for the health fair, was excited to have the Dewey Does 110% team back at the school’s annual event to represent
child health foundation
for the health fair.

Dewey Does is that state-of-mind that inspires kids to give 110%. One kid, out of many, touched our hearts at this health fair event. He came timid and shy, almost unsure of himself but after spending time with Dewey Does and the Dewey Does 110% Team, Ernie DeRosa posted the best score time and time again. Ernie is only 7 years old and he challenged all to beat his top score of 100 steps in 10 seconds. Everyone stepped up to the challenge but Ernie walked away as champion of the Dewey Does 110% Fitness Dash. He may still be a little shy but today timid was no longer part of his personality. Ernie is now a confident Dewey Does 110% kid.

See you at your next health fair PS 36. Checkout the exciting photos at www.deweydoes.org.

Creating a Luscious Candy Dessert Bar for Your Kid’s Party¬†¬† by Marc Wallace

Your kid’s birthday is coming up and you know that you should be able to prepare the best kind of party that your little one surely deserves. One thing that you are very concerned about is the candy dessert bar. Knowing kids, you know that this will be one of the focal points of the party so you have to nail this one right. In order for you to create a luscious candy dessert bar for your kid, here are some important things to remember.

Pick a color and theme

First, you have to pick a theme for your child’s candy dessert bar. It primarily depends on the overall theme of the party. For example, if you are going to have a luau party for your daughter, you can have a tropical candy bar theme. For your superhero son, you can have spider-man and superman candy theme. Choose colors that will complement the theme and the occasion. Usually for birthdays, it would be great to choose bright colors because kids love them. Just see to it that you pick carefully so that the colors won’t clash with each other but complement and blend well together.

Choose the table cover and serveware

It would be great to have a table cover that’s plain white to enable the candy desserts to stand out. As for the serveware, you should find platters that come in coordinating sets to give the bar a cohesive look. Furthermore, go for tiered displays that will add stunning visual interest on the table filled with candies.

Go healthy

If you think that having too many candies will take a toll on the children’s health, more so on their teeth, you can go for healthier alternatives. Instead of filling the tables with only candies, you can also add in healthier desserts such as fruit tarts, fruit slices to be dipped in chocolate fountain, and fruit dices with whipped cream on top. If you intend to do these desserts yourself, you should invest on baking and dessert tools such as cream chargers and cream whipper to save money on buying these items.

Buy candy in bulk

Speaking of saving, if you want to save money on candies, you can also opt to buy them in bulk. This will give you maximum savings especially if you buy candies unwrapped and you just do the wrapping and packaging yourself.

Place candies in candy jars

This will add another type of visual interest on the candy bar. Use candy jars that are transparent so that the bright and vibrant colors of the candies will show through.

Get all the help you can get

Organizing a party even the planning of the candy bar itself can be tiring and tedious. Don’t hog all the chores and tasks. Delegate tasks to your family and friends so they can all help out in creating the most wonderful candy bar that any party-goer has seen in a long time.

Kid S Health

[simpleaffiliate source=”chitika” results=”0″][/simpleaffiliate]
kid s health
I’m afraid for my friends kids health?

She has always been a little overweight,but now she’s bigger than I have ever seen. Her father has custody, so she has no idea what she’s being fed. What can she do to help her child lose weight? She’s 9.

That poor kid… with the parents not together and clearly not cooperatively parenting… the best thing the mom could do is take her daughter to a counselor so they can work on all of the issues, rather than just the weight.

Mother and daughter will both do better with a counselor/emotional coach.

Structured and Unstructured Play Both Important for Kids’ Health

Children should be getting an hour of physical activity every day, health organizations agree. That needed 60 minutes does not need to be all in one sitting, however. The exercise can come in small increments throughout the day, and consist of free play, physical education and structured activity breaks. In their annual “Shape of the Nation” report on state physical education standards, the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) pushes for more activity both in and out of PE class. Speaking of the benefits at recess time, they state, “Climbing a tree or navigating playground equipment such as monkey bars increases muscle strength by lifting and moving a child’s own body weight or working against resistance.”

The survey of physical education requirements and standards in all fifty states and the District of Columbia has been issued every year since 1987. Notably, this year’s results show that while 95% of parents support physical education all the way from Kindergarten through high school, only five states actually require that much. Recess time adds to the benefits of physical education class periods and is “an essential element of children’s physical and social development,” the study notes.

Playground equipment, however, can provide benefits for both physical education classes and unstructured play at recess. BCI Burke’s Intensity® fitness play complex can be used in PE with our FREE Intensity® Curriculum, which meets NASPE standards and is so fun that during free play time kids will keep on jumping, spinning and climbing on its exciting play events. We designed Intensity to help kids get the most out of their increasingly limited time for physical activity during the school day.

·         Make sure your child’s vaccines are up-to-date.

·         Stay on schedule with well child visits to your pediatrician.

·         Encourage your kids to wash their hands often, especially before they eat, after they use the bathroom, after handling animals and whenever they seem dirty.

·         Teach your kids not to share glasses, water bottles, hats, towels, or other items with friends.

·         Be sure your kids cover cuts and scratches.

·         Teach your kids to keep their fingers and other items, like pencils or pens, out of their mouths, so that they don’t help germs get into their body.

·         Teach kids to wash fruits and vegetables before they eat them and follow other food safety practices.

·         Encourage kids to eat healthy foods, including fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, and whole grains, etc., and to not skip any meals.

·         Consider giving your child a multivitamin if you think that your child doesn’t eat well and is missing out on important nutrients, such as iron, vitamin D, and calcium, etc.

·         Help your kids learn to manage stress.

How To Keep Your Kids Healthy

Getting sick is a part of being a child. Your immune system is not completely built up yet and you are often in situations where you are exposed to illness, especially once you start attending school and sharing space with other kids. While the occasional head cold, earache or chicken pox is all a part of growing up, there is no reason to spend most of your childhood sick. If your child was a generally healthy baby, they should be a generally healthy child, even if the occasional sickness comes their way. There are things you can do as a family to ensure your child will have the healthiest childhood possible. There is no reason why parents need Phoenix caregiver jobs or Phoenix CNA jobs to keep illnesses away from their children. Everyday actions can lead to a healthy, happy child with just a little bit of effort.

First, it is important to have a healthy home. Keep the environment clean, as free of allergens as possible and provide your child with everything they need in the home to be healthy. They should have a sleeping space free of distraction and they should have a schedule that allows them to get a good night’s sleep. Kids may need more sleep than adults, so if you child likes to sleep in and is grumpy if you wake them up with the sun, do not get frustrated. Their bodies are driving the need for extra sleep and it is not just them being lazy. Likewise, if your child prefers to stay up a little later, you can allow this occasionally because their inner clocks are changing. However, they should have a sleep schedule that provides them with eight to ten hours of rest on the regular basis.

Another important part of keeping kids healthy is setting a good example. If a child has healthy parents, they are more likely to grow up healthy. For one, they will mimic your behavior without questions. If healthy family meals are served each night, they will assume that is how it is supposed to be. If they see you getting exercise and staying active on the daily basis, it will become their reality too. They will also respond to any stress you are feeling, so be open about your life with them so they understand there are ups and downs, and to be healthy, the stress must be handled effectively.

What your child eats is going to make a big difference in their development and as a parent, you have a lot of control over their diet. Expose them to a lot of foods and make the experience fun for them. There is no reason to force your child to eat foods they do not like, but encourage them to at least try something before ruling it out. Do not attach emotions to foods. Just let them taste something and determine for themselves whether or not they like it.

Finally, surround your children with happiness. In order for kids to be physically and emotionally healthy, they need to know they are loved and supported with being smothered. Provide a healthy environment for them both physically and emotionally.

i missed the news yesterday why did bush veto heath coverage for kids?

Bush vetoes child health insurance plan
Jennifer Love – Associated Press Writer
OneNewsNow.com
October 3, 2007

WASHINGTON – President Bush, in a confrontation with Congress, on Wednesday vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have dramatically expanded children’s health insurance.

It was only the fourth veto of Bush’s presidency, and one that some Republicans feared could carry steep risks for their party in next year’s elections. The Senate approved the bill with enough votes to override the veto, but the margin in the House fell short of the required number.

The White House sought as little attention as possible, with the president wielding his veto behind closed doors without any fanfare or news coverage.

The State Children’s Health Insurance Program is a joint state-federal effort that subsidizes health coverage for 6.6 million people, mostly children, from families that earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to afford their own private coverage.

The Democrats who control Congress, with significant support from Republicans, passed the legislation to add $35 billion over five years to allow an additional 4 million children into the program. It would be funded by raising the federal cigarette tax by 61 cents to $1 per pack.

The president had promised to veto it, saying the Democratic bill was too costly, took the program too far from its original intent of helping the poor, and would entice people now covered in the private sector to switch to government coverage. He wants only a $5 billion increase in funding.

Bush argued that the congressional plan would be a move toward socialized medicine by expanding the program to higher-income families.

Democrats deny that, saying their goal is to cover more of the millions of uninsured children and noting that the bill provides financial incentives for states to cover their lowest-income children first. Of the over 43 million people nationwide who lack health insurance, 9 percent, or over 6 million, are under 18 years old.

Eighteen Republicans joined Democrats in the Senate, enough to override Bush’s veto. But this was not the case in the House, where despite sizable Republican support, supporters of the bill are about two dozen votes short of a successful override.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Democrats were imploring 15 House Republicans to switch positions but had received no agreements so far.

House Minority Whip Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said he was “absolutely confident” that the House would be able to sustain Bush’s expected veto.

Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott, R-Miss., said Congress should be able to reach a compromise with Bush once he vetoes the bill. “We should not allow it to be expanded to higher and higher income levels, and to adults. This is about poor children,” he said. “But we can work it out.”

It took Bush six years to veto his first bill, when he blocked expanded federal research using embryonic stem cells last summer. In May, he vetoed a spending bill that would have required troop withdrawals from Iraq. In June, he vetoed another bill to ease restraints on federally funded stem cell research.

In the case of the health insurance program, the veto is a bit of a high-stakes gambit for Bush, pitting him against both the Democrats who have controlled both houses of Congress since January, but also many members of his own party and the public.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched radio ads Monday attacking eight GOP House members who voted against the bill and face potentially tough re-election campaigns next year.

And Gerald McEntee, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union, said a coalition of liberal groups planned more than 200 events throughout the nation to highlight the issue.

I have to come up with an activity for little kids in either health, safety, or nutrition?

In my college young kids course i have to come up with an easy game/activity to teach kids about health, safety, or nutrition. Any ideas are welcome, thanks

Safety:
Find a movie about the dangers of talking to strangers. You can make up scenarios the kids and act it out in class. You could also talk about safely crossing the street. Bring in a bright orange vest, a whistle, and stop sign and pretend to be a traffic director. Demonstrate how the director would direct traffic and allow them to safely cross the street.

Health/Nutrition:
Make up a matching game. Bring in cards that have different fruits and veggies on one side and mix them up and make the kids match them up correctly. Teach the kids what each fruit or vegetable is before playing the game and add a twist to it by making them say the fruit or vegetable once they find the match. You can also time the game to make it a competition.

Warning: Don’t bring in any food for the children to eat unless you get the OK from the parents first. Some students might be allergic. I’m deathly allergic to bananas. They make my throat swell up and I break out in hives. And my friend’s allergic to the peach fuzz on peaches. It breaks her out in hives if she touches/rub the peaches for too long.
