See how one Ohio community gives foster children healthy lifestyle choices.

As basic cooking skills are often left to chance, fast foods and other quick fixes become the favored, but less healthy, choice. Here leaders team up to get kids involved in learning basic skills of cooking and how to prepare healthy food. The benefit is two-fold: exposing teens in foster care to positive women while they are learning a valuable life skill.

Safe Practices in the Kitchen

PinExt Safe Practices in the Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most dangerous places in the home, especially when children are involved.  Working with children in the kitchen requires extra care.

Some of the most common accidents in the kitchen include burns, fires, cuts, falls, electric shock, and poisoning.

You can help prevent accidents while working in the kitchen with children in many ways. Some of these include:

Remember that stove tops are hot and may stay hot long after they are turned off. Adults should cook foods on the stove top and place or remove food from the oven.

Keep handles on pots and pans turned inward, so there is no danger of someone knocking them off the stove.

Don’t wear loose-fitting clothes or long floppy sleeves when cooking or allow children to have long floppy sleeves. They can easily catch fire. Keep long hair tied back.

Use pot holders when handling hot pans. Do not use a towel.

Lift pot lids away from you so the steam flows away from you and does not burn you.

Wash knives separately from rest of dishes and silverware.

Wipe up spills immediately.

Never touch electrical appliances if your hands are wet.

All household cleaners are poisonous. Never pour a little soap or other potentially dangerous liquid into a container that once held food. When small children are around, the cleaners need to be in a locked cabinet.

All cleaners, dish washing detergents, and plastic bags need to be kept out of small child’s reach.

Don’t call vitamins or medicine “candy.”

Stay safe and keep children safe by following safe practices in the kitchen.

To your good health and that of your family,

Tips on Fighting Off the Flu Bug

PinExt Tips on Fighting Off the Flu Bug

In addition to washing your hands, getting enough rest, and optimizing your vitamin D levels, here is an important consideration on helping you return to good health quicker if you do get sick with the flu.

This comes from Mercola.com:

“Avoid Sugar and Processed Foods. Sugar impairs the quality of your immune response almost immediately, and as you likely know, a healthy immune system is one of the most important keys to fighting off viruses and other illness. It also can decimate your beneficial bacteria and feed the pathogenic yeast and viruses. Be aware that sugar (typically in the form of high fructose corn syrup) is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice. If you are healthy then sugar can be consumed but the LAST thing you should be eating when you are sick is sugar. Avoid it like poison while you are sick.”

To read the entire article, see  http://goo.gl/jqx5u     

So, “no” to ice cream and gelatins and “yes” to soups.

To your good health,

Easy Tips for Quality Family Time on Valentine’s Day

PinExt Easy Tips for Quality Family Time on Valentines Day

I hope you are planning to spend time on Valentine’s Day with your family. Here are some easy tips for quality family time to help you express your love to others in a fun way.

  • Set out paper place mats and decorate them with a Valentines Day theme.
  • Write an “I love you” note with soap on your bathroom mirror.
  • Listen to your children with your eyes and heart as well as your ears.
  • Plan a treasure hunt by leaving little notes around the house expressing your appreciation for something others did. End with a riddle or clue to the next hiding place where they will find a candy or special memento. Have something special at the last hiding place such as a toy or treat.
  • Show your love and appreciation to others. Affirming statements such as “I love you just the way you are; I’m so glad you’re my (son, daughter, mother, father, friend)” need to be given often, not only on Valentines Day.

There are lots more suggestions for this and other special days  in Cooking Around the Calendar With Kids — Holiday and Seasonal Food and Fun. This is a fun book you can read and use all year long.
