Video Game Exercising In Minden

Video Game Exercising In Minden

Welcome to the Healthy Minden Children blog. This site is for Minden parents who are concerned about the health of Nevada children. Today’s article looks at fitness video games.

If your child would rather exercise their thumb on a gaming console than shoot some hoops or kick a soccer ball, they might enjoy Wii, Playstation, and Xbox games that require them to move their body to play the game. If players enjoy the game, they will probably not mind (or notice) sweating a little bit.

Of course, you will need the necessary accessories to play these fitness games. Your nearest Minden Target, Wal-Mart or Best Buy probably has everything you need for your gaming system.

I perused the internet to see which games came up on game review sites. The following are bestsellers:

EA Sports Active
Punch-Out!
Dance Dance Revolution
Gold’s Gym Cardio and Dance Workout
Kinect Sports Review
Nickelodeon Fit
Wii Fit

By providing a variety of exercise choices for our Minden children, we can encourage them to get some exercise every day. (You may also enjoy playing them with your child, but be prepared to lose.)

Is My Nevada Baby Ready For Solids?

Is My Nevada Baby Ready For Solids?

Although Minden pediatricians generally recommend starting infants on solid foods when they are around six months of age, there are important developmental milestones that must be reached before your baby can take this step.

Even if an infant’s digestive system is ready for solid food, the baby must be able to safely swallow it. A baby should be able to sit with assistance but hold his or head up on their own. Without head and neck control, eating solids is difficult and dangerous. Many Minden pediatricians also advise parents to wait until an infant shows interest in what other family members are eating.

If you are unsure if your infant is ready for solid food, check with your Minden pediatrician. Remember that for the first year your baby’s nutrition will still come primarily from breast milk or formula.

My name is Norma Sommers. I am an advocate for children’s health and nutrition in Minden. I also sell Xocai, a nutritional powerhouse. For more information on Xocai, call me today at (775) 721-6565.

Reno Mega-Meals: Don’t Eat The Whole Thing!

Reno Mega-Meals: Don't Eat The Whole Thing!

It’s no wonder that many Carson City children and teens struggle with weight issues. What is considered a ‘normal’ food portion has been getting bigger and bigger. In some cases, as with gargantuan Carson City fast food soft drinks and Reno Costco muffins-on-steroids, it is absolutely ridiculous. And extremely unhealthy.

The findings from three large national surveys demonstrate:

‘Hamburgers have expanded by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger; soft drinks have increased in size by 52 percent, snacks, whether they be potato chips, pretzels or crackers, are 60 percent larger.’1

Carson City restaurants and Reno food and beverage manufacturers are not the only ones sabotaging our children. Portion sizes have increased in homes, also.

If Carson City parents are going to help their children maintain a healthy weight, learning proper portion sizes is critical. If we don’t know the size of a healthy portion, how can we teach our children?

The Mayo Clinic website has a great slide show that helps Reno parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/portion-control/NU00267

To order a terrific nutritional product for Reno kids, call me today!

A Sales Career In Carson City

A Sales Career In Carson City

If you are considering a sales career in Carson City, I strongly recommend network marketing or direct sales. After all, if you are going to sell something in Carson City or online, why not have your own business?

Today’s home businesses in Carson City are powerful yet manageable. You can have your own home based business with very little overhead. Most direct sellers in Carson City don’t even have to store any inventory. They can run their direct sales business with their laptop and internet-enabled phone.

If you already use these technological tools, you’re all ready to get started. If you are not as techno-savvy, I would be happy to show you how to use small business management tools.

I have been selling Xocai since May 2010. When I first started my Carson City direct sales business, I had no idea what a rush it was to build your own money-making enterprise. It is nothing like working for someone else. My Xocai business has now become a full-fledged career.

You can create your own sales career with Xocai in Carson City. Call (775) 721-6565 to get started!

Carson City Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Carson City Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Hello! Welcome to the Carson City children’s health blog. I am Chocolate Coach Norma Sommers. At this site, I publish information on nutrition and health issues that affect Carson City children and families. My goal is to improve the state of children’s health in the Reno area.

Despite decades of increased awareness in Reno about the dangers of a distorted body image and extreme dieting, eating disorders are still a serious problem.

A recent American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) study revealed disturbing facts about eating disorders among children.1 According to the report, 0.5 percent of teenage girls in the country are estimated to have anorexia. The bulimia rate among adolescent girls is estimated at more than double that at 1 to 2 percent. Though anorexia and bulimia are usually thought of as a problem for adolescents, Carson City parents should be aware that even young Reno children are at risk, as well as males, though the rates are lower.

Nevada pediatricians can help Carson City parents with children affected by an eating disorder. The AAP recommends a combination approach for the treatment of eating disorders in children. Treatment plans usually include nutritional guidance and psychiatric counseling along with the appropriate medical care.
