Get your Children to Eat Healthier... More Veggies, Please!

9 Simple Ways to Get Your Kids to Eat More Veggies

More Help Can Be Found At Dine Without Whine

It seems like a never-ending battle with the kids. Although you and I know veggies are delicious and they’re also good for you, they act like vegetables are a plague they want to avoid at all costs.

If you need creative ways to get your kids to eat more vegetables, here are 9 ideas to incorporate into your daily meals right away:

1. Make healthy choices readily available and put the sugary and greasy snacks away. This doesn’t mean totally deprive yourselves of these delightful treats, but making healthy eating a normal part of your day goes a long way to helping kids develop better eating habits.

2. Add veggies like carrots or even asparagus to smoothies. Kids love fruit smoothies and they’ll never know you put in a little of those dreaded vegetables in.

3. Sneak vegetables into other foods. For example: Add grated carrots into spaghetti sauce or make a zucchini chocolate cake.

4. Try dip. You know kids love to dip everything. Just make sure they know they have to eat the dip stick and not just lick it!

5. Take your kids shopping with you. Let your child pick out a new vegetable in the grocery store that they’ve never tried. Then prepare the vegetable together.

6. Be patient and consistent. Avoid having a tantrum yourself when your child has a tantrum about vegetables on their plate. Sometimes it will take several times of serving the same food before your child is even willing to try it.

7. Make it artistic and fun. Place veggies into a smiley face on your child’s plate or decorate a pizza with them.

8. Let them choose: raw or cooked. Some children may have a definite preference as to whether their veggies are cooked or raw.

9. Plan your meals. Sometimes it’s easy to forget the veggies when you don’t have a plan…allowing your kids to get into the habit of veggie-free meals. Plan your meals and grocery lists in advance, so you won’t come up short on the greenery.

The Birthing Process- Your choices and Infant Mortality? What can we do?

Discussion 4-1

The process of birth occurs in three stages. The first of these processes is the dilation of the cervix and transition of the contractions to reach their optimal level (Berk, 2008). This is followed by the birthing process which includes the pushing of the baby down the canal and the emergence of the body (Berk, 2008). Finally, the placenta is delivered, marking the end of the process (Berk, 2008). Although, in a normal delivery, all of these processes occur in the same sequence, cultures define the environment and methods used to assist in the process.
Prior to the 1800’s in the Western Cultures, most births took place in the home (Berk, 2008). However, as risks increased and the industrial revolution brought more medical and professional services to urban areas, hospitals with doctors became the choice setting for birth (Berk, 2008). It is important to remember, however, in the hospital settings; during those times sanitary conditions and standards were low, which possibly increased the potential for harm to the mother and newborn.
Between the 1950’s and 1960’s a Natural child birth Movement emerged in which mothers opted for a more relaxed setting within the hospital, so birth centers were created (Berk, 2008). These allowed for members of the family to participate in the process, the declined use of pain medications occurred, and the onset of practices which assisted the mother in the birthing processes such as relaxation techniques, position and Lamaze (Berk, 2008). This allowed for the mother to have a choice in how the birth of her child would be conducted. Proponents Natural Child birth claimed to reduce pain and reduce anxiety (Berk, 2008). The Natural birth Process included classes about the process to decrease fear, breathing and relaxation techniques, and a coach to assist with the labor by offering encouragement and assisting with the techniques learned throughout the training (Berk, 2008).
Free standing birthing centers also became an option for the mothers. Free standing birthing centers allowed for the mother to choose the position, the environment, and allow whom she chooses into the delivery process (Berk, 2008). Positions included sitting upright or using a special birthing stool which allegedly led to decreased labor and increased oxygen to the baby; Water births in which the water supports the weight of the mother and thus allowing her to move into comfortable positions during the process (Berk, 2008).
During the 1970’s and 1980’s, Home Deliveries became more common. Home Delivery has historically been the preference in countries like England, Netherlands, and Switzerland, but in the Western culture it began to emerge as a choice for women who were at decreased risk for complications (Berk, 2008).
It is important to note that in all cases, there is a risk of complication during the delivery. However, even in hospital setting with a physician standing by, some of these complications cannot be corrected. Once the birth is complete, the risks for the newborn do not end. In fact, depending upon culture, socioeconomic standards, and available support systems, the risk may increase.
Unfortunately the greatest risk for infant mortality occurs with poor ethnic minorities (Gross, 2008). African American and Native American infants are twice as likely to die in the first year, while Canada has the greatest survival rate (Gross, 2008). The infant mortality is linked to physical defects and low birth weight (Gross, 2008). The numbers are actually staggering for the first month of life, with 67% of infant deaths in the United States (Gross, 2008).
Many countries have significantly lower rates of infant mortality in comparison to the United States. Research indicates that this likely due to health care and support that is universal to all who need it in these countries (Gross, 2008). Furthermore, these countries take a proactive approach in offering nutrition, medical care, and social economic supports to the new mothers (Gross, 2008). Western European countries, for example, offer low cost or free prenatal care, home based health services, follow up to the new mother and infant after birth, counseling, and ongoing medical services to the infant (Gross, 2008).
Post Natal development is critical to the survival of the infant. Many countries with high mortality rates lack clean drinking water, immunizations, are in desperate poverty, and have inadequate medical supports (Gross, 2008). Besides these basic needs, the physical contact from the mother is critical. Research indicates that infants who are deprived of comforting physical touch experience higher rates of failure to thrive (Gross, 2008).
So, although history shows progress in the actual birthing process, the post natal care and treatment services available still pose a huge threat to the survival of the infant.

Now, after reading that... I am curious, what do you think we should do? 67% of infants die during their first month in the Western Culture? how Can that be? With all the advances in medical technology that we have? yet, those advances are not freely accessible to the poor, uneducated, and those in certain outlying areas...
Is universal health care the solution? Or is this simply going to decrease the available services?

I would love to get a real conversation going on this one... hear your thoughts, see it from a different perspective... So, share here!

You should read the whole article.

Advances in Gene Therapy- Sickle Cell Anemia PKU

With the advances in technology, treatments have become available for some genetic diseases. New knowledge and understanding in the genetic link to specific disorders allows science to decrease the effects of the disease, assist in the treatment, decrease the mortality rate associated with the diseases, and the potential to actually cure or prevent the diseases.

Genetics are not the only character influencing the emergence of specific diseases and disorders. The developmental stage and the environment also play a role in the expression (Gauvin, 2009). Testing can indicate the likelihood of the emergence of certain diseases, such as PKU. One test, AFP assay, or Alpha fetoprotein assay, is a maternal blood tests that reveals if the PKU recessive allele is present (Gauvin, 2009). The detection of these recessive alleles can be conducted before and after birth (Gauvin, 2009).

Women who are found to carry the PKU recessive allele are recommended to take a special diet, typically for life, but at the very least, during pregnancy (Gauvin, 2009). Failure to follow this diet may lead to miscarriage or the the increased risk of the baby having significant mental retardation (Gauvin, 2009). After the baby has been born, the testing can also occur. Babies are tested to determine if the phenylalanine is decreased and preventing the build up of toxins that lead to mental retardation (Gauvin, 2009). If detected, a special PKU diet must immediately be implemented and continued until the nervous system of the infant matures (Gauvin, 2009).

Another disease, sickle cell anemia, is finding hope in the strides of gene therapy and testing measures resulting from the research in genetic disorders and genetically linked diseases. Sickle cell anemia is more prominent in African American populations and 8% of African Americans carry the recessive gene for Sickle Cell Anemia (Gauvin, 2009). Sickle Cell Anemia results when 2 recessive alleles are expressed in combination with each other (Gauvin, 2009). With this disease, the red blood cells decrease in oxygen, resulting in the disfiguration of the cell into an elongated shape which gets caught in blood vessels leading to pain, tissue damage, chronic anemia, and possibility of death (Gauvin, 2009).

Historically, the only treatments available were blood transfusions (Gauvin, 2009). Some pharmaceuticals have been found to help with the symptoms by increasing the activity of dormant hemoglobin genes (Gauvin, 2009). The progress in gene therapy has led to hope for more effective and life saving treatments. Gene therapy involves using normal alleles to compensate for the dysfunctional alleles that lead to the disorder or disease (Gauvin, 2009). In Utero treatments that have been tried utilized bone marrow cells from the father being injected into the fetus through the mother’s abdomen (Gauvin, 2009). Safety is always a concern, even though the use of ultrasound serves as a guide (Gauvin, 2009). Another measure used is the removal of the target cells and then fusing them with the new genes, and then re-inserting them into their target place within the body (Gauvin, 2009).
Obviously medical procedures and science is moving forward quickly. The benefits of these measures include preventing diseases, curing disease, and the possibility of eventually eliminating such diseases. Genetic counseling continues to play a significant role in determining the presence of these defective alleles and determining the risks they present to the infant.

It is important to slow down, though, and consider the negative impacts of such zealous measures. Do these defective alleles have a purpose within the human development realm? Sickle cells, for example, have been found to have a positive purpose for the survival of humans. Sickle cells have been determined to also fight malaria, as their unique formation is genetically resistant to the disease that kills thousands every year (Gauvin, 2009). So, science needs to explore all of the possible outcomes of genetically altering the human cells, even if the intent is to preserve life and prevent suffering.

To my readers? What do you think? Are these advances, "Playing God"- are we altering human nature? Are we ridding society of unique and individual characteristics? Are we stigmatizing those that do present themself with a special characteristic such as mental retardation? Obviously no one wants their child to suffer or feel pain, but as with sickle cell, is there a higher purpose for these characteristics that we may not know?

I would love to hear your take on these advances, gene therapy, etc. I have not personally had to undergo or utilize such testing, so it has not touched me personally, but for some of you- maybe it has... Please share your thoughts and enlighten someone else to a different point of view...

Genetic testing? Gene therapy? Genetic counseling? Is it worth it?

The recent strides in genetic testing and gene therapy have opened up new possibilities and options in the prevention and detection of many genetic anomalies. The genetic exploration can occur prior to conception through genetic counseling, or after conception in the form of some high risk testing options.

Preventative genetic counseling is the least risky step in preventing genetic disorders for families attempting to have children. Through the genetic counselor, the parents are tested with the goal of determining any defective alleles present and the likelihood that a genetic disorder may be expressed due to their presence (Gauvin, 2009). Having this knowledge empowers the parents to make choices best for their family, whether to attempt conception or to utilize other means of creating a family such as donors, adoption, etc.

One such option is amniocentesis. This test allows the researcher to take amniotic fluid from the amniotic sac surrounding the fetus (Gauvin, 2009). The amniotic fluid contains the cells from the fetus and allows the analyzing of the chromosomes and genetic makeup (Gauvin, 2009). The optimal time to draw this sample is in the sixteenth week of pregnancy and carries the risk of miscarriage for the mother (Gauvin, 2009). The risk is considered to be around 1 miscarriage per 200-300 tests (Gauvin, 2009).

A second common genetic test is chorionic villi sampling. This test carries a higher risk of miscarriage than the amniocentesis, yet it is able to be performed earlier in the pregnancy at the ninth week (Gauvin, 2009). The test also allows for a risk of limb and physical deformities to arise (Gauvin, 2009). Chorionic villi sampling uses cells from the chorionic villi from the chorion to utilize as the testing sample (Gauvin, 2009). The chorion is the membrane that outermost surrounds the amniotic sac and contains identical chromosomes and genes to those of the embryos, although the chorion is not considered part of the embryo (Gauvin, 2009). This testing examines chromosome anomalies, attempts to predict chromosome disorders, and has the potential to look at the genetic markers that have been deemed indicators of many disorders (such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s Chorea, etc) (Gauvin, 2009).

Recently, strides have been made in the area of gene therapy in which normal alleles are inserted into the cells of the patient to attempt to compensate for the defective alleles (Gauvin, 2009). If successful, large scale, this would have obvious potential for curing and preventing many disorders and diseases that are genetically linked such as Crohn’s, Down’s syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, etc.

Controversy obviously surrounds these testing measures. One issue is that parents need to be fully informed that if an anomalies is detected, there is no guarantee that the result will be serious problems because the testing discussed does not explore or contribute to the environmental factors that are present (Gauvin, 2009). There is the fear that scientists are attempting to play God. There is also the risk of the testing procedures discussed versus the knowledge gained. Would knowing your child may be born with Down syndrome really change anything other than having the parent worry excessively? Unless the parent was considering abortion, the risks do not appear to outweigh the information obtained. This leads to another concern, would the knowledge increase the rates of abortion? As mentioned above, the environmental factors are not taken into account with these testing procedures, so it is unclear if the deformed allele will actually express. The question of what criteria warrants an abortion emerges? Could this knowledge lead to insurance companies requiring genetic testing and determining rates based on this knowledge? These are all concerns that have been expressed by society in regards to genetic testing.

A final point of concern with this testing is the stigma that then becomes attached to those with “special abilities” versus disabilities. The disabled movement has worked diligently to remove the stigmatism attached to their disabilities and to be accepted as functional members of society. Creating testing which has the potential to remove or eliminate any genetic disorder provides a negative cloud over the developmentally disabled, once again. Obviously, no parent wants their child to suffer or be treated differently; however, many people believe that everyone has a place in society regardless of their physical and mental attributes. Another concern is where the line will be drawn with the testing and gene therapy? Will science move towards allowing parents to create their own perfect child? Choosing the hair color, physical attributes, IQ? Although that may seem like Hollywood hype, history shows that some societies have already attempted this through other means.

Get Back on the Healthy Track

The Power of Antioxidants for Staying Young

Everyone wants to grow old gracefully. Some go under the knife to get that youthful look while others opt for a more natural way to maintain that healthful glow. The way to make peace with age can be found in the types of foods that we eat and the miracle ingredient they contain.

This hidden “miracle” is called antioxidants. They have graced the pages of magazines, medical journals and every product from hand cream to supplement pills. But what are antioxidants and what can they do to keep you looking your best?

Antioxidants are substances that fight the aging process that goes on in your body. They are not produced by the body so to get the benefit of these power-packed substances you must ingest them. A variety of foods contain antioxidants.

Let’s go back to the beginning. The body continually replenishes its cells. Through a process called cellular metabolism, the body produces energy, more cells and repairs any damage. One by-product of cellular metabolism is unstable molecules called free radicals.

Free radicals are molecules that damage your body. They are unstable because they are missing an electron. To get another one and become stable, free radicals will steal electrons from cells. That theft damages the cells in a variety of ways.

The results are visible and invisible changes to our bodies. The development of diseases like cancer, diabetes, arthritis and neurological deficiencies may begin to affect you as you age. Also, thinner skin wrinkles and brittle bones are a problem. Free radicals enter our body from outside sources as well: cigarette smoke, radiation and the sun’s UV rays. The more free radicals we encounter, the greater the damage that can be done.

Antioxidants have been shown to be of great help in the free radical problem. Antioxidant substances combine with free radicals and neutralize them. Once they are neutralized, they can no longer do any damage. Scientists don’t have any idea of a recommended daily dose of antioxidants to correct free radical damage and the diseases that come with age, but they do know that eating foods rich in antioxidants makes a huge difference in how we live.

Where do you find antioxidants? They are all around us. Look no further than your local farmer’s market or produce aisle in the grocery store. Fruits and vegetables contain the principle sources of antioxidants.

Examples of antioxidants include:
* Vitamin C
* Vitamin A
* Vitamin E
* Lutein
* Lycopene
* Beta-carotene

Certain minerals like zinc and selenium also function in the body. They are not antioxidants but they boost the immune system to fight against free radical damage.

Antioxidants are also found in nuts, legumes, cold water fish, seafood and red meat. So, eating a varied diet of fruits, vegetables and the foods just named will increase the amount of antioxidants in your system and help reduce the incidence of disease. Eating fruits and vegetables in their natural form instead of juices brings the benefit of other nutrients found in the foods. Juices also contain a lot of sugar that is not needed by your body.

Food does more than stave off hunger. Natural substances found there can cause us to live longer and stay free of disease as we age.

I know it's not Valentines Day, but sometimes we get so busy we forget about "us"

; | Prepare a Romantic Dinner At Home For Valentine's Day

Prepare a Romantic Dinner At Home For Valentine's Day

By: Christine Steendahl

Remember those pre-child days when you would go out to a fancy restaurant or spend the weekend at a romantic get-away to celebrate Valentine’s Day? That may not be an option this year, but you can still enjoy a romantic dinner with your spouse. Here are a few ideas on how you can easily create a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at home.

Creating The Menu
This is the perfect time for some “Grown-up” food. Cook a separate dinner for the kids or order in some pizza. Let the kids eat an early dinner and then send them off to play, or watch a movie while the two of you enjoy your meal. If your children are really young, you may want to put them to bed before you sit down for your Valentine’s Day dinner.

Cooking a restaurant inspired meal doesn’t have to be complicated. Pick up some mini-quiches in your grocers frozen food section and bake them up as an appetizer. For a first course pick up a can of gourmet style soup that you just need to heat up. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and some fresh herbs for visual appeal.

Choose a main dish that you can prepare ahead of time, so you can enjoy the evening. Good choices are baked salmon or chicken. Just place either one in a baking dish, add whichever marinade you prefer and refrigerate. When you are ready just bake it until it’s done. Serve with mixed greens and fancy store-bought vinaigrette. Grab French bread, or fix some wild rice.

Dessert could be anything from cheesecake with fresh fruit, to chocolate dipped strawberries to chocolate mouse that you can make ahead and refrigerate. Or serve assorted cheeses with a nice glass of red wine.

Setting The Scene
Set the table with a tablecloth, cloth napkins and candles. Take out your good china and crystal. Since dinner will be just for the two of you, you don’t have to worry about damaging any of your special tableware. Now is the perfect time to enjoy all these fancy goodies you received as wedding gifts.

Take the time to dress up, and do your hair and makeup. I feel sure you spouse will appreciate it and you will feel like you are actually going out. For even more fun get ready in separate rooms and ask your date to come pick you up.

Turn down the lights and light the candles. Play some soft, romantic music, or some songs that have special meaning for the two of you. You never know, with the right music, your romantic Valentine’s Day dinner may end with some slow dancing in your dinning room.

Staying in doesn’t mean you can’t have a wonderful romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. You never know, this may turn out to be the most romantic Valentine’s date yet.
