Probiotics For The Prevention Of Eczema In Chandler

Probiotics For The Prevention Of Eczema In Chandler

If your Chandler kiddos scratch and claw at their skin because they suffer from children’s eczema you might consider including more probiotics in their diet.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that promote the growth of friendly microflora in the intestines. Some probiotic powerhouses you can find in your favorite Chandler grocery store are yogurt, kefir, and kimchi.

Probiotics support digestive health in a number of ways. They have been shown to prevent diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and help reduce the symptoms of eczema.

Safe and natural probiotics can be an effective weapon in your eczema arsenal. Chandler dermatologists and Phoenix pediatricians also recommend washing your tot’s clothing with mild detergents, using humidifiers, and bathing them with mild soap and then letting their skin completely dry.

My name is Joann Price and I am a proud Distributor of Xocai healthy chocolate products. I also campaign for children’s health in Chandler, Phoenix, and the surrounding areas. If you would like more information on the Xocai healthy chocolate products or home based business opportunity, contact me today!

all over the world Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

all over the world Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

One of the best things you can do for your kids is to help them love plant foods. Kids who are exposed to a wide variety of live foods when they are young are more likely to continue eating them when they are grown.

Why are plant foods so important for families all over the world?

Plant-based foods have vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and protein. Live foods are generally low-fat, low-sodium, and, if unprocessed, have less toxins than processed foods.

Let’s help kids eat better than most of us adults have eaten for the past three generations.

There is more to a plant-based diet than broccoli and carrots. Here are some plant-based meal and snack ideas to inspire you:

  • Legumes: beans, peas, lentils (hummus, black bean burritos, vegetarian chile)
  • Nuts and seeds: pecans, almonds, walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, (sunflower seeds on salads, granola with almonds, trail mix with nuts instead of M&Ms)
  • Whole grains: barley, spelt, millet, rye, quinoa, brown rice (spelt bread, whole wheat pasta, stir-fry with brown rice)
  • Fresh and dried fruit: bananas, berries, citrus, melons (blueberry barley pancakes, fruit plate with yogurt-honey dip, dried apricots in brown bag lunches)
  • Veggies: (mashed sweet potatoes, spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette, pizza with green pepper, mushrooms and onion instead of pepperoni)

One of my favorite foods is made from the super-nutritious cacao plant. It is super-high in antioxidants and tastes like candy. To try Xocai healthy chocolate, contact me today.

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

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

It’s no wonder that many Chandler 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 Chandler fast food soft drinks and Phoenix 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

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

If Chandler 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 Phoenix parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here:
