All of parents do not want something bad to happen to their kids, so sometimes they do not consider buying health insurance
for the children. However, parents need to spend time on this issue and it is better to be prepared. Once something bad happen to your children, you can reduce some injury costs. The Children’s day is coming, I think the best gift for them is to buy some health insurance for your children. Here are some suggestions and help for you do that.
Have a clear idea of how much health insurance do you want to have for you children. You need to spend enough money to cover the unexpected costs. Particularly, if both of you are working outside of your home, it is essential for you to buy enough health insurance for your kids.
Search information online or other places to compare your options. You should investigate what kinds of health insurance is available online, alternatively, you can ask help from the insurance agent
, requiring the agent to tell you what he can provide for you, so that you will obtain many policy discounts.
The important step is to compare the different policies and price. You can consider buying a term of health insurance which will stop as your children is in the age of 18 or 21. In addition, it is vitally important to consider a term of health insurance which can pay you back the insurance premiums
when the policy is ended, but it is never used.
Now you can decide what kind of health insurance is suitable for your children, and then read the fine print. You need to ensure that you are satisfied and comfortable with all details of the policy.
The last step is to fill out the application format and take out your first premium for your kids.

DD tackles obesity with his kids health foundation. by Dewey Does
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.

Someone, please make my kid eat! by Medimanage.com
“It is a war of wills. He doesn’t budge nor do I. He is a good opponent I can say, he guesses my next move and then just disappears. I am talking about the daily tussle between me and my son to eat. He will eat only aloo and leave the rest. If I mask the carrots in the soup he will smell it and make a dirty face”.
If this common complaint with you too, and are at wits end to how to make your child eat, and then here are some tips to get you going!
Small starts, Small Portions: Don’t intimidate your kid with lots of vegetables and varieties in big quantities. Give him/her small quantities, generally you add one teaspoon, per year of your child. Now, make sure he tries at least one bite of each portions. You will find, with small quantities he takes the plunge and tastes everything and he may also realize that some of it even doesn’t taste that bad after all. The food isn’t wasted, you haven’t raised your voice and everyone is happy.
Don’t forget who is the boss: Several times, the food decisions are made by the kids depending on what they like. This is likely to rob them of what’s good for them. No matter what your child may feel about a particular food, you have to serve him a mixture of fruits, vegetables, cereals and pulses. He will protest and make a fuss but hold your ground and you will find him eating all of it.
Don’t nag and shout: Firstly don’t use food or meal time as a part of your discipline routine. Meal time should remain the same even if he is a saint or a devil that particular day. We may try to prevent them from misbehaving if we don’t give him the special treat but in the long run it doesn’t pay off.
Prepare them: Tell them half an hour before that meal will be served soon. This way, he is ready for it and puts away his toys and his books. He will also not be the cranky self when forewarned.
No distraction, please: If TV was your savior when you used to feed your child, with the cartoons providing the distraction needed to stuff the morsel in his mouth; Stop it. It is not a good idea. When food is eaten with a distracted mind or in a hurry, it is not properly chewed so that well digested. Switch off the TV and make food the activity.
Presentation, Presentation, Presentation: What makes Pasta rule over Poha and Sandwich over Dosa?- Presentation. Kids are convinced that these are cool foods and hence have no trouble eating them. So what do you do? Be creative and create new dishes like- fusion dosas with lots of vegetables, cheese, make Poha colorful, serve upma with sev and give them cool names, for example –Sevai is Grated Rice noodles and doodh is the coolest health drink that keeps superman on his toes etc. Replace superman with whichever is his or her favorite hero. more detail on this link…http://www.medimanage.com/my-kids-health/articles/someone-please-make-my-child-eat.aspx
I lost my job. How do I pay child suppot and health insurance for my kid/?
I have been paying child support for the past 6 years, never missed a payment. I do not have any income now that I lost my job. I also have a home mortgage and 2 car payments to make. I bought my house last year and with the market being so rough, I cannot sell the house without a huge loss.
Maybe you could sell one of the cars for extra money. Or apply for health insurance through your state.
ARLINGTON, Virginia–In our country today we have an obesity problem and it is getting to our kids. KidsHealth states, “One out of three kids now considered overweight or obese.” Let’s find a way to break the cycle. Golf is a sport that any child or adult can participate in and reap many health benefits. Doctor Jane Hart, clinical instructor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio, says that walking is one of the most beneficial exercises that we can do.
Golf combines that exercise, which children may find boring, with a competitive sport that just about anyone can play. It involves strategy that my nine year old picks up on and started to work on the first round. It involves using muscles that kids sometimes forget they have sitting in class then in front of a computer playing video games or doing homework. The professionals say that an average of 10,000 steps a day is equal to a healthy active lifestyle, a round of golf (18 holes) takes 11,948 ±1781 steps per 18-hole round of golf.
What is another benefit to golf? Golf is a family a game, kids love to play. Ever sit on the bleachers and cheer on your kids wishing you could play too. I tried doing Tae Kwan Do and tennis with my kids both worked out well for a while. Then I got tired of the bruises from the karate class, so we looked into Golf. With golf we can play together in a relaxed manner. Tournaments can be entered by any level of player and include adults, children and families. In most cases children play for free. You can find quality golf equipment for the beginner at www.rkfamilyent.com.

Diabetes can sometimes make you feel alone or singled out; however, it’s important to understand that all types of people have diabetes and many suffer through the same hardships you do, even celebrities. Reading about others’ hardships with diabetes and their efforts to give back to the diabetic community can be inspirational. Celebrities have a tremendous impact on societal views in many ways; which can be both positive and negative. However, in the case of diabetes education and exposure, we have found some celebrities who use their status to educate and promote healthy living.
Mary Tyler Moore is one celebrity that’s constantly in the spotlight who works hard to tightly control her diabetes and dedicates her personal time to the diabetes community. According to an article titled “Mary Tyler Moore tells how she took control of diabetes,” written in USA Today, “few viewers knew that around the time The Mary Tyler Moore Show launched, she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.” This was in the 1970s, and Moore was 33 years old. Since then, Mary has worked to live a healthy lifestyle in order to keep her career and life on track. Her management of healthy foods and insulin injections (http://www.i-port.com/) has kept her as healthy as possible. Today, Moore is the international chair woman of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the author of Growing Up Again, a powerful story that offers her personal account of living with diabetes. She has spent endless amounts of time advocating for diabetes and educating people on the subject. She is truly an inspiration for healthy living with diabetes.
Another celebrity who lives with diabetes is Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. Nick is notorious for his role in the pop-rock band that he formed with his brothers Joe and Kevin. He has touched even more lives through his positive influence and public speaking about life with diabetes. In 2007, the Jonas Brothers performed at a Diabetes Research Institute fundraiser in New York. According to Kidshealth.org, Nick asked everyone in the audience to raise their hand if they had diabetes and included himself to publicly announce for the first time that he too had diabetes. During the concert, Nick encouraged kids to be positive about their condition, and explained that his positive attitude is what helps him combat his personal struggles with diabetes. With a hectic touring schedule, Nick has to work extremely hard to maintain a healthy diet and effective diabetes management regimen, and he is a constant reminder that even superstars are not invincible. His personal story gives hope to those struggling with diabetes.
Mary Tyler Moore and Nick Jonas both prove that you can find a balance in your life and live a healthy life with diabetes. Having diabetes can often times make you feel like you are the only one living with the condition but it’s always important to remember that you are not alone, and that there are people in the public eye willing to give you the inspiration we all need to continue staying healthy and strong.
