Keeping Woodland Park Kids Regular

Nutrition for Denver children

It might be an awkward subject for Colorado Springs parents to bring up with an older child, but making sure your son or daughter is having regular bowel movements is essential for their health – at all ages. If your child is experiencing problems with this, try these natural fixes before you resort to a medication.

Increased water intake is often all it takes for Denver area kids to overcome this problem since dehydration is a common cause.

To encourage your child to drink more water, try getting them their own water bottle and keeping it full in the fridge. That way, even if your child is too small to reach the tap themselves, they always have easy access to cold water.

It’s important to evaluate the diet of your child and look for opportunities to introduce more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods contain the fiber that is necessary for bowel health. Plus, you’ll see lots of additional health benefits from these steps toward proper nutrition.

If natural remedies don’t alleviate the problem, consult with your Monument, Woodland Park , or Manitou Springs pediatrician.

Mosaic Magic For Colorado Springs Kids

Monument Kids Health

Parents in the Monument 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 Woodland Park and Manitou Springs 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 Denver, Monument, or Woodland Park 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 Elsa Shields and I am passionate about kids health in Monument. I want to help Denver parents to raise happy, healthy kids.

I own my own Colorado Springs home based business that sells Xocai Nuggets. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 719.439.0142. We can discuss one of the many children’s health issues that is important to me, such as children’s nutrition and immunizations.

Sneaky Veggies For Denver Kids

Sneaky Veggies For Denver Kids

Denver parents: when you put a serving of broccoli or zucchini on your son’s or daughter’s plate, does your kid gobble it down, or stare at it like it’s a pile of alien goo? Well, if the former is true, then you can skip this article. However, I think many families in the 80923 zip code area could use some more veggies for better children’s nutrition in Denver.

Here are some ideas for Denver parents who want to sneak more veggies into kids’ diets:

Broccoli: cook the broccoli, blend it up, and put some of it into brownie batter. Sounds strange, I know, but even the pickiest eater won’t detect the added children’s vitamins and minerals.
Zucchini and yellow squash: shred it and add it to pasta sauces or casseroles. Theses veggies have a mild flavor, and won’t detract from the taste of the dish.
Spinach and other dark greens: if you have a high-end blender, you may be able to blend these super healthy greens raw. If not, you can boil them for a few minutes until tender, and then plunge them into ice water. Blend with some frozen fruit and yogurt or tofu for a nutrient-rich smoothie.
Cauliflower: dice it, cook it, and add it to white sauces or cheesy sauces over pasta.

There are many ways Denver parents and caregivers can add healthy veggies to foods kids already eat. It might take a little more preparation, but Colorado children are worth it!

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Colorado and like to share children’s health and nutrition tips in my blog. If you are looking for low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate products, call me today. I sell XoBiotic Squares and Xocai Nuggets, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy in Denver.
