In our busy world, eating out has become a favorite pastime and our kids’ health is suffering as a result. Restaurants are tricky, making it challenging for you to present your kids with healthy options because on the kids' menu - there usually aren’t any!
When dining out with little ones, parents are usually offered a separate “Kid's Menu.” This is why most kids grow up believing they are supposed to be eating different food from adults. The brainwashing begins at a very early age.
Inspiring your daughter to be a healthy, fit, and confident young lady takes more than just driving her to ballet class, emphasizing a longer hemline, and serving up smoothies on Saturdays.
In order to really connect with your daughter and discover how she sees herself and her body you have to ask the tough questions and be willing to listen with an open heart (and often a shut mouth) as she answers.
In today’s world, we all know the basics of how to get fit: eat right, make good choices, and maintain balance. And if you don’t know the basics, then the resources for learning them are endless - Internet, magazines, TV shows, and all the "helpful" advice of friends, loved ones, and complete strangers.
No matter how many times I write about it, I always find myself coming back to the subject of my kids and their pickiness when it comes to food. I guess it’s not such a shocker that the topic is always on my mind; I do have to feed them every single day, and coming up with ideas for what to make never gets any easier.
It's estimated that more than 11 million women use oral contraceptives (aka "the pill") in the U.S. alone. It's hard to believe but it wasn't always easily accessible. During the 60's, oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) were illegal in eight states, and it wasn't until years later that the benefits of birth control were recognized by the FDA.
In addition to preventing pregnancy, birth control pills are also commonly used to treat a whole host of problems including severe cramps, irregular periods, and acne.
