3 Tips For Improving Lueneburg Kids’ Attention Spans

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

USA immunization schedule

Hello Germany parents! Today in the Lueneburg 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 USA.

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 Germany, Europe, and USA 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 Hamburg 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.

4 Ways To Improve Your Child’s Nutrition In Germany

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

USA Kids Health

Parents in the Hamburg and Europe areas are continually looking for ways to improve their children’s health and well-being. Today in the Lueneburg Kid’s Health Blog, we want to give you four simple ways to do this with children’s nutrition suggestions.

1. Buying healthy snacks for your kids is pretty simple these days. Most Hamburg supermarkets are packed with fresh fruit and veggies year-round along with low-fat cheese, nuts, and whole grain crackers. But, as you put those groceries away, remember to consider location, location, location. If your kids can’t find the healthy stuff, they’re not going to eat it. Place fruits at children’s eye-level in the fridge and other healthy snacks at the same height in the pantry.

2. Keep treats treats. When something is given to a child every day (or even two or three times a day!), like candy, it stops being a treat. When it’s time to indulge, make it a special occasion where the family joins in. You could take a trip to one of the great ice cream parlors in USA after a family game night, or stop for milkshakes after an afternoon at the park. Just keep the frequency of these outings low enough that each time it happens, it’s still a treat.

3. Speak up to other Hamburg parents about what you want offered to your child. As the snack list for soccer games is passed around, suggest specifying what should be included and what shouldn’t (i.e. orange slices good! doughnuts bad!). Chances are, other parents have been hoping someone would clarify the issue and set some healthy standards.

4. Set a good example. If you’re complaining about the veggies in your meal (or if your spouse is) the kids will follow, and then some.

3 Easy Ways For Lueneburg Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

USA kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the USA, Europe, and Germany 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.

Old-School Snacks For Hamburg Kids

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier USA Kids

What does it take to make a healthy snack? The aisles at every USA, Europe, and Germany grocery store are lined with packages that claim to be healthy and to contain the newest, most exciting vitamin or mineral. But is that really what makes a snack healthy?

Chances are that the answer is no. A lot of the foods that make healthy snacks are not the ones that you find packaged in the middle of the supermarket. Rather, they are what we would consider plain old food.

Plain old food has the advantage of being unprocessed and free of chemicals and preservatives. So, let’s take a look at these seemingly boring snack ingredients.

Cheese is a real protein powerhouse for your kids, so a little goes a long way. For a fun twist, try using cookie cutters to make shapes that your kids will love to gobble up!

Peanut butter and childhood go together like, well, peanut butter and jelly. Ants on a log, peanut butter spread on celery with raisins is always a fun treat. If your child has peanut allergies, you can always substitute almond butter in most recipes.

Low-fat yogurt is probably a favorite of your child’s already, but this versatile source of calcium has plenty of tricks up its sleeves. Try adding berries, or something crunchy like granola or whole-grain cereal. And, in the hot summer months, a yogurt pop can really hit the spot.

The humble egg isn’t just for breakfast anymore. Hard-boiled eggs kept in the fridge might be one of the most convenient ways to enjoy this high-protein snack.

As you can see, the secret to children’s nutrition might just be that there is no secret at all. Find real food, make it into a snack, and ignore the claims made by processed, pre-packaged food.

Music is Magic for Lueneburg Kids

Friday, December 6th, 2013

USA immunization schedule

Parents in and around Lueneburg 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 Germany, Europe, and USA parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Hamburg 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 Lueneburg community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with Germany, Europe, and USA libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

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

3 Critical Toy Safety Rules For Lueneburg Parents

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Hamburg childrens vitamins

Between holidays and birthdays, there are plenty of opportunities for gift giving in the Hamburg 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 USA, Europe, or Germany 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 Ute Hagen and I am passionate about kids health in USA. I want to help parents in and around Hamburg 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.

4 Benefits Of Germany Skate Parks

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

USA kids shot schedule

Kids love to move, and if given opportunities to participate in activities they enjoy, most will get regular exercise. Hamburg youth who exercise and eat a healthy diet are less likely to be overweight.

If your child likes to skateboard, in-line skate, or ride a scooter, then you should check out the skate parks in the area. While no activity involving wheels is completely risk-free, skate parks have several advantages.

1. Skate parks provide an area away from moving vehicles.
2. No one should ever skate or ride a scooter alone, so the communal nature of a skate park is a built-in safety feature.
3. Skating in business and public areas is usually prohibited because of safety hazards and the damage that results from skating on stairs, ledges, handrails, and other structures.
4. Skate park features are designed by professionals, unlike homemade jumps, half pipes, ramps, and rails.

Children using Hamburg area skate parks should be familiar with and abide by all posted rules. In addition, participants should wear helmets and other protective gear.

My name is Ute Hagen and I am passionate about kids health in USA. I want to help Hamburg area families discover outdoor activities that provide a fun way to exercise.

I sell nuggets. If you would like to learn more about this residual income opportunity, please contact me at 0114941323936787.

How Does Nature Make USA Kids Happier?

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

USA kids shot schedule

Hello Lueneburg parents! Welcome the the Hamburg 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 Germany 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 Europe 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 Lueneburg outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!

F-A-R For Europe Kids With Asthma

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

F-A-R For Europe Kids With Asthma Attention Europe parents of children with asthma: Johns Hopkins Children’s Center recommends the FAR approach to prevent flare-ups. FAR stands for Flu shot, Avoid triggers, and Regular use of meds.1

Flu Shot: Respiratory infections are dangerous for Europe children with asthma. The flu shot lowers the risk of catching a bug and also helps lessen complications for those who do get the flu.
Avoid triggers: Europe parents of asthmatic kids should determine the triggers and protect their child at their home, Europe school, and wherever their child spends time.
Regular Medication: The meds referred to are the controller or prevention medications, not the rescue meds designed for use after an attack is in progress.

The Johns Hopkins article also reminds parents to be extra careful when the seasons change–a common time for an increase in attacks.

Germany Kid’s Health: Guard Against Chapped Skin

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Germany Kids Health Guard Against Chapped Skin

When it comes to your Germany child’s health, you might first think of their diet. While putting vitamins and minerals inside your child’s body is important, you also need to pay attention to what is going on on the outside. I’m talking about your child’s skin.

The skin is our body’s largest organ and when skin’s smoothness is disrupted, small cracks and openings can create an entryway for bacteria and germs.

Active Germany kids don’t often think of the condition of their skin until it starts hurting. Playing outside in hot, cold, or dry weather can lead to small cracks around knuckles or nails. This painful condition is called dermatitis, or extreme dryness. Temperature extremes in Germany make it harder to keep skin moist and healthy – dry, chapped and cracked skin is common in summer and winter.

Many kids lick their lips until they turn red or bleed. Reminding your child to drink plenty of water can prevent over-dryness.  Using a humidifier during the night in your child’s bedroom can also help.

Make sure you leave moisturizing lip balm in handy locations: by their bed, the front door and in the car so reapplying it becomes habit. Remind them to slick some over their cuticles as well, to prevent cracking.

Europe dermatologists suggest a using a daily skin moisturizer that contains shea butter and aloe to draw moisture into the skin and keep it in place.

Encourage Europe kids to use waterproof gloves when playing outside in the cold. Lightweight gloves with grips added to the palms are great for playing ball and riding bikes. In addition to protecting skin from dryness, they keep small hands from slipping. You can pick these up at Germany sporting good stores or Europe big box stores.

Using a non-drying sanitizer is another way to prevent bacteria from entering through the skin. Look for brands that are alcohol-free to prevent excessive dryness.

For additional tips for Europe children’s health and to learn about a nutritional supplement kids love, contact me today at 0114941323936787!
