Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Leesburg immunization schedule

Hello Florida parents! Today in the Summerfield Children’s Health Blog, we are going to look at various ways to lengthen kids’ attention spans. An increased attention span can improve learning ability as well as behavior and is an important aspect of kids health in Leesburg.

1. Find an activity that will hold their attention. This might mean that you need to experiment with different types of toys and crafts. One child might enjoy building blocks while another may become engrossed in an art project. There are many craft and hobby stores in the throughout the US, Chiefland, and Leesburg area where parents can get great ideas.

2. Recorded stories are a wonderful resource for increasing attention spans. Have your child lie on the floor and close their eyes, then play a recorded story. When it’s finished, have your child retell the story to you. Local Ocala libraries are perfect for finding recorded books and stories. Or you can download audio books for your iPad or other electronic reader.

3. Make sure that your child is using age-appropriate toys, crafts, and media. Age recommendations can be very helpful when deciding what activities will effectively engage your child.

Remember that it’s natural for different children to have varying attention spans, but the attention span of all kids should improve with age.

Healthy Summerfield Kids Are Well Rested

Healthy Summerfield Kids Are Well Rested

Getting an adequate amount of sleep is essential to the health of Summerfield kids. During sleep, muscles, skin, and bones actually grow and repair themselves. The immune system is recharged during sleep, so this is especially important during the Ocala cold and flu season. Because the brain processes the stimulus and information it received during the previous day, sleep is crucial for healthy brain development.

Parents in the throughout the US, Chiefland, and Leesburg areas should do everything they can to make bedtime work for their family. One of the most important things is for Ocala parents to model healthy sleep behavior for their children.

If you want your child to follow a consistent bedtime schedule, you’ll need to follow one yourself.

It’s also important to check out your child’s sleep environment in your Ocala home. What is the temperature and noise level of the room? White noise might help your child sleep better. Fans or humidifiers that can be purchased at any Leesburg Wal-Mart, Chiefland drug store, or throughout the US Target store are inexpensive and do the job well.

Give your child a screen-free room in which to fall asleep. This means no TVs, computers, iPods, or cell phones. In fact, turning off all screens an hour or two before bedtime will help the whole family fall asleep on time.

Make sure you include the children in planning a bedtime routine and then stick to it. If they have trouble saying goodbye after you’ve tucked them in, try giving them a special security object like a blanket or stuffed animal to fall asleep with.

I’m Richard Bailey and children’s health is very important to me. I enjoy operating my own Summerfield home business that sells a nutritional chocolate product. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at flarichardhealthychocolate.com or call me today at 352-445-6651.

Mosaic Magic For Summerfield Kids

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

Leesburg Kids Health

Parents in the Leesburg area know how important it is for kids to express themselves artistically. This can be a great boon for a child’s cognitive development as well as their emotional health.

But sometimes the crayons and paper can get a little boring for kids. Luckily, there are lots of easy ways to encourage Chiefland and throughout the US children to create pictures and designs with unique materials and methods.

One of these methods is mosaics. Instead of drawing on paper, cut pieces of colored paper into small pieces. Then, allow your kids to organize the small pieces into a picture or design. Once they’ve completed their picture, give them some glue and have them adhere the mosaic to another complete piece of paper.

And you don’t have to stop at paper. There are plenty of materials that can be made into a mosaic.

A favorite material is dried beans. They are inexpensive, come in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes, and can be found in any Ocala, Leesburg, or Chiefland grocery store. However, remember that dried beans can be a choking hazard, so only use these and other small objects with older children.

My name is Richard Bailey and I am passionate about kids health in Leesburg. I want to help Ocala parents to raise happy, healthy kids.

I own my own Summerfield home based business that sells X Protein High Antioxidant Shake. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 352-445-6651. We can discuss one of the many children’s health issues that is important to me, such as children’s nutrition and immunizations.

3 Critical Toy Safety Rules For Summerfield Parents

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Ocala childrens vitamins

Between holidays and birthdays, there are plenty of opportunities for gift giving in the Ocala area, so parents are often on the lookout for toys to give at the next big event. Toys can promote children’s health by stimulating the mind, encouraging imagination, or by getting kids moving around and exercising. But whatever toy you choose, make sure it is safe.

Next time you are browsing the toy aisle of your favorite Leesburg, Chiefland, or throughout the US department store, here are a few safety tips to keep in mind.

1. Be sure that you purchase toys that suit the child’s age and abilities. Buying a toy that is meant for older children is a possible safety hazard and should always be avoided.

2. Once you’ve chosen an age-appropriate toy, read all of the enclosed instructions before allowing your kids to play with it.

3. This can be difficult when you have children of differing ages, but you should always make sure that older kids play with toys containing small parts away from younger children, and never allow them to leave the game pieces unattended.

And, speaking of gifts, remember that ribbons and strings should be taken away immediately after a gift or toy is unwrapped.

My name is Richard Bailey and I am passionate about kids health in Leesburg. I want to help parents in and around Ocala to raise healthy children and I do this by discussing important issues in my Children’s Health Blog, such as proper nutrition, immunization schedules, and safety.

I own a home based business here in Summerfield that sells X Protein High Antioxidant Shake. If you would like to learn more, call me at 352-445-6651 or visit me on the web at http://flarichardhealthychocolate.com.

Music is Magic for Summerfield Kids

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Leesburg immunization schedule

Parents in and around Summerfield know that healthy kids need proper nutrition, lots of exercise, and well-rounded lives. It’s also safe to say that for all children, a well-rounded life should include music in one form or another.

Studies have shown that music does so much more than simply entertain!

Did you know that children who are involved in some kind of musical training during school perform better in math and science? They also develop better coordination, do better in reading, concentrating, and goal setting. Studies show that students who are involved in a music education program also perform better on their SATs, and are more likely to attend college.

While it’s ideal for throughout the US, Chiefland, and Leesburg parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Ocala area will have great advice on age-appropriate music lessons and teachers for your curious child.

But lessons aren’t the only way! Keep an eye out in the Summerfield community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with throughout the US, Chiefland, and Leesburg libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

Keep up the good work, Summerfield parents! Your children are lucky to have you to help them stay safe, healthy, and happy!

How Does Nature Make Leesburg Kids Happier?

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Leesburg kids shot schedule

Hello Summerfield parents! Welcome the the Ocala Kid’s Health Blog. I’m sure most of you know how important it is for your kids health to spend time outdoors each and every day. But it may be even more important than you think.

Just like proper nutrition, immunizations, and vitamins, getting outside is essential for your child’s health.

One reason if for the natural light of the outdoors. This natural light keeps kids alert and healthy. Also, exposure to this light in the morning has a way of setting children’s internal clocks to promote better sleep and earlier bedtimes. (And what throughout the US parent doesn’t want earlier bedtimes?!) Another reason is that nature soothes and comforts children in safe, healthy ways. Studies have shown that children have better ability to focus with increased time outdoors. This will translate to more productive learning time as well as more tranquility in the home. Lastly, outdoor exercise is superior to indoor exercise because it promotes more physically vigorous play like jumping, running, and tumbling. These are all of the things that Chiefland area parents are always telling their kids to stop doing in the living room!

Arrange your family’s schedule so that your children have time to explore the Summerfield outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!

3 Easy Ways For Summerfield Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

Leesburg kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Leesburg, Chiefland, and throughout the US area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even kids.

Antioxidants work their magic by protecting cells from free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines.

Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You might remember from chemistry class that this is the same process that causes an apple slice to turn brown. During oxidation in the cells, DNA can be damaged and changed, which can create the beginnings of disease. A chain reaction of damage can also occur with one damaged molecule becomes a free radical itself and then damages another, and so on.

Now that you know their importance, here are 3 great ways to get more antioxidants into your kids’ diets.

1. Get more veggies on their plates at dinner time and in their lunch boxes

2. Make fruit the snack of choice for your family

3. When buying processed snacks, choose those fortified with antioxidants.

My name is Richard Bailey and I sell Power Squares in the Summerfield and Ocala areas. If you are interested in learning more about how Power Squares can be a part of your child’s healthy lifestyle, call me today at 352-445-6651.

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In throughout the US

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In throughout the US

Hello, welcome to my throughout the US children’s health and nutrition blog. Today’s topic is teen prescription drug abuse.

Most throughout the US teens will be offered an illegal prescription medication at one time or another. They are sold at Florida high schools and passed out at teen ‘pharm’ parties. Florida parents should realize that no child is immune. Here are some tips for throughout the US parents from Better Medicine: 1

Start talking about the dangers when they’re preteens. Speak early, often, and clearly.
Stay involved in your child’s life.
Emphasize how misusing medication can destroy relationships and keep him or her from achieving goals, such as getting into a certain college or landing a future job.
Teach your child to say ‘no’ firmly but kindly, give a reason, then change the subject or leave the situation.
Monitor your child’s internet usage for signs of prescription drug involvement.1

throughout the US parents should keep their medications locked away. It is also important to realize that children watch how their mother and father use prescription medications. I encourage all Ocala parents to use prescription meds safely and legally.

Do You Know Your Summerfield Child’s BMI?

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Leesburg Kids Vitamins

Because of issues such as childhood obesity in throughout the US, there has been a lot of discussion about BMI or Body Mass Index. However, some parents in the Leesburg and Chiefland area aren’t quite sure what this number is, what it represents, and why it is important.

Each time you take your child to your Ocala pediatrician for a well child check-up, you are given statistics regarding your child’s growth. BMI is a growth statistic that uses height and weight to estimate a person’s body fat.

BMI can then help Leesburg parents and pediatricians know if a child’s weight is appropriate.

If your Summerfield area pediatrician does not measure BMI, there are many free calculators on the internet that are easy to use and can give you an accurate measure. Once you have a BMI calculated for your child, it’s a good idea to share this information with your child’s doctor and make any changes that your doctor recommends.

Children with a high BMI are usually instructed to:

Be active for at least 60 minutes each day
Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day for proper nutrition
Limit soda
Practice appropriate portion sizes

Healthy kids are happy kids, and I love helping Leesburg, Chiefland, and throughout the US parents establish healthy habits. My name is Richard Bailey and I am the owner of my own Summerfield home business that sells X Protein High Antioxidant Shake.
