Kids and Food: 10 Tips for Parents – KidsHealth kidshealth.org

“It’s no surprise that parents might need some help understanding what it means to eat healthy. From the MyPlate food guide to the latest food fad, it can be awfully confusing.

The good news is that you don’t need a degree in nutrition to raise healthy kids. Following some basic guidelines can help you encourage your kids to eat right and maintain a healthy weight.

Here are 10 key rules to live by:

Parents control the supply lines. You decide which foods to buy and when to serve them. Though kids will pester their parents for less nutritious foods, adults should be in charge when deciding which foods are regularly stocked in the house. Kids won’t go hungry. They’ll eat what’s available in the cupboard and fridge at home. If their favorite snack isn’t all that nutritious, you can still buy it once in a while so they don’t feel deprived.
From the foods you offer, kids get to choose what they will eat or whether to eat at all. Kids need to have some say in the matter. Schedule regular meal and s..”

The best time to eat fats is at 10 a.m because fat acts as a source of energy, so have your fats in the morning so you can burn them off all day. For carbs, 1 p.m is the best time to indulge since they increase your level of serotonin and will prevent snacking throughout the rest of the day — yay for pizza for lunch. Sugar intake is 2 p.m since this will give you instant energy during your midafternoon slump, and 5 p.m is the best time for an alcoholic beverage since in small doses it can act as a stimulant, but in high doses it’s a depressant, so at 5, this will give your body lots of time to metabolize it by bedtime.

Dietary Fats: What’s Good and What’s Bad familydoctor.org
“..“Bad” fats

Saturated and trans fats are bad for you. Less than 7% of your total daily calories should come from saturated fats. Less than 1% should come from trans fats. In a 2,000-calorie daily diet, that’s less than 15 grams of saturated fat and less than 2 grams of trans fat.

Saturated fats occur naturally in some animal products. This includes meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy items, such as cheese, cream and whole milk. Palm, coconut, and other tropical oils, as well as cocoa butter, contain saturated fat.

Trans fats are made when liquid oils get turned into solid fats. This process is called hydrogenation. Trans fats are found in a lot of processed foods. All food companies have to list trans fat on nutrition fact labels. However, foods can have up to .5 grams of trans fat per serving and still show 0 grams. Check the ingredients list and look for the words “hydrogenated oil.”

You should limit saturated fats and avoid trans fats. They often are found in fast food, fried foods, and snack foods. They also can be in desserts and commercial baked goods. These bad fats increase your LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. They decrease your HDL (good) cholesterol levels….

“Good” fats

Replace bad fats with good fats. Studies show that good fats can help lower your total cholesterol level. Omega-3 fatty acids have good health benefits. They can decrease your risk of heart attack and inflammation.

Monounsaturated fats are found in canola, olive, and peanut oils. They are in a variety of nut oils and butters. Avocados, legumes (beans and peas), and seeds also contain these fats.

Polyunsaturated fats are found in vegetable oils like corn, sunflower, and safflower oil. They are in soybeans, legumes, grains, and nuts. Several seeds, like sesame and sunflower, also contain these fats.

Omega-3 fatty acids are usually found in seafood. This includes salmon, herring, sardines, and mackerel. Flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, and walnuts also contain omega-3s…”

Marine animal-based omega-3 (fatty fish, fish oil and krill oil) primarily contain docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a long-chained PUFA consisting of 22 carbons and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which has 20 carbons.
Plant-based omega-3 (found in flaxseed, flaxseed oil, chia seeds, walnuts and leafy greens, for example) contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a shorter-chained PUFA consisting of 18 carbons. They are completely devoid of DHA and EPA.

Fat is another important source of calories. In small amounts, fat is a key fuel source. It serves other functions, such as supporting good skin and hair. Do not replace carbs in your diet with fats. This can slow you down, because your body has to work harder to burn fat for energy. Fats should make up no more than 30% of your daily calories. When you can, choose unsaturated fats, like olive oil and nuts. These are better for your health than saturated and trans fats. Too much fat or the wrong kinds can cause health problems.

Because the shoulder blade resembles the blade of a trowel (a small shovel), the word “scapula” is thought to have come from the Greek “skaptein” meaning “to dig.”

The term “subscapular” means under (sub) the scapula. The subscapularis muscle originates beneath the scapula. This muscle moves the arm by turning it inward (internal rotation). The subscapularis muscle tendon is part of the rotator cuff…’

The Wolff’s Law On Bone Transformation And Remodeling, Part I .naturalheightgrowth.com
“..Bone is anisotropic (it has different strength and stiffness depending on the direction of the load). Bone will grow, build, adapt, transform, and remodel due to enormous stress or force. The larger the forces the shin bone sustains, the greater the osteoblast response.

For example, by sitting with 30 lb ankle weight on each leg, the ankle weight and the earth’s gravitational pull will cause your shin bone to remodel. Thus, by eating nutritional foods and taking supplements daily, your shin bone mass density begins to thicken and lengthen due to the downward force exerted by the weights & gravity…’

  • Wolff’s Law – Definition in Physical Therapy
    This is How Your Bones Heal
    By Brett Sears, PT | Reviewed by a board-certified physician
    Updated June 27, 2017 .verywell.com
    “…Definition:

    Wolff’s Law states that bone grows and remodels in response to the forces that are placed upon it. After injury to bone, placing specific stress in specific directions to the bone can help it remodel and become normal healthy bone again. Your physical therapist should understand Wolff’s law to help guide your rehabilitation after a fracture or broken bone.
    How Does Wolff’s Law Apply to Physical Therapy

    Wolff’s Law applies to physical therapy in the treatment of osteoporosis and after a fracture.

    If you have osteoporosis, your bones may be brittle and weak. This can lead to pathologic fracture, most commonly in the spine or hip. Weight-bearing and strength exercises are usually recommended as a non-medicinal treatment for osteoporosis.

    If you have suffered a fracture, bone healing occurs while you have been immobilized with a cast or splint. After immobilization, gentle range of motion and stress can help improve the overall strength of your bone. This can help ensure that your bone is able to tolerate the loads and stresses that you may encounter during normal functional activities…

    Your PT can help guide you by prescribing the right exercises for you to do that will add a gradual and progressive stress to your injured bone.

    For example, after an ankle fracture, your doctor may order that you remain non-weight bearing for a few weeks immediately after the injury. During this time, there may be some benefit of early mobilization for your ankle. Your physical therapist can prescribe safe exercises that you can do that will place gentle stress through your bone while helping you maintain mobility….”

    Two Individual Conditions With Shared Characteristics
    “..Comparing Tendinitis and Bursitis

    Broadly speaking, tendinitis and bursitis are differentiated by the types of tissue affected:

    Tendinitis refers to inflammation of the tendon, the rope-like, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone. When a muscle flexes or relaxes, the tendon acts like a winch and causes the bone to move. Tendons can be small, like those found in the hands and feet, or large, like the Achilles tendon.

    Bursitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled sac, called the bursa, which acts as a cushion between bones and the tendons or muscles surrounding the bone. The bursa greatly reduces the friction as these structures regularly rub against each other. The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons of the large joints, such as those in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees…”

    Tibia — shinbone
    Fibula—smaller bone in the lower leg
    Talus—small foot bone that works as a hinge between the tibia and the fibula

    Together, the calcaneus and the talus form the subtalar joint. The subtalar joint allows side-to-side movement of the hindfoot and is especially important for balance on uneven surfaces…”

    Cartilage is a connective tissue found in many parts of the body. Although it is a tough and flexible material, it is relatively easy to damage.

    Different types of Fractures – A Simple Classification of Fractures

    “..For this discussion we would stick to the basic and general classification of the fractures of long bones. We have already discussed closed and open fractures. That is one type of classification according to absence or presence of wounds that communicate with fracture.

    Fractures are also classified according to the pattern in which bone breaks. Let us take them one by one..”

    “..Educational video describing fracture types and the mechanisms of injury. There are many types of fractures, however, the main types are described as either displaced, non-displaced, open and closed. Displaced and non-displaced fractures refer to the way the bone breaks. A very small crack in the bone is often referred to as a “hairline” fracture. This is an incomplete fracture usually resulting from a minor injury that does not go all the way through the bone. A greenstick fracture is an incomplete fracture in which the bone is bent. This fracture type is most often found in children. A transverse fracture is a simple fracture that is complete. It occurs due to the tension of the bone. Oblique fracture occurs due to a compression fracture. It is slight obliquity of the fracture. Bending fracture pattern It is part transverse and part oblique. It occurs due to bending force. Butterfly fracture pattern It occurs due to bending force and axial loading. Spiral fracture occurs due to torsion force. Comminuted fracture occurs due to high energy force. A fracture can be either closed or open. Fractures than penetrate the skin are open. Fractures that do not penetrate the skin are closed…”

Fracture, break, or crack all mean the same thing. One term does not imply a more or less severe injury. The integrity of the bone has been damaged, causing the bone structure to fail, which results in a fracture or broken bone.

    Broken bones are painful for a variety of reasons:..

    Fractures can occur because of direct blows, twisting injuries, or falls. The type of forces or trauma applied to the bone determine what type of injury that occurs. Some fractures occur without any obvious trauma due to osteoporosis, defined as the loss of bone mass or a congenital bone cyst that has been present since birth, which causes a weak area in the bone…”

    “..Physiology of fracture healing

    Fracture healing involves complex processes of cell and tissue proliferation and differentiation. Many players are involved, including growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, antioxidants, bone breakdown (osteoclast) and bone-building (osteoblast) cells, hormones, amino acids, and uncounted nutrients.

    Fracture healing can be divided into three phases.

    The inflammation phase is the first stage of healing. Immediately upon fracture, a blood clot forms, allowing the influx of inflammatory, clean-up cells to the wound area. ..

    The second, reparative stage begins about two weeks after the fracture occurs….

    The final step of fracture repair is known as the remodeling phase…..

    5 nutritional steps to accelerate fracture healing

    People who have had a fracture aren’t often told that they can do anything to make their bones heal faster — at most, they’re told to limit the use of the injured bone or limb (not easy to do if the fracture is in your spine!). But there are a number of methods you can employ to reduce your healing time:

    1. Provide the body with adequate energy

    Fracture healing requires more energy than you might expect. Thus, it’s appropriate to increase your caloric intake to promote healing…
    <p.
    2. Check your protein intake

    Bone can be imagined as being somewhat like a sponge made of living protein upon which mineral crystals are embedded…..In addition, protein supplementation increases growth factors like insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), a polypeptide that exerts a positive effect on skeletal integrity, muscle strength, immune response, and bone renewal…

    3. Increase anti-inflammatory nutrients

    Antioxidants repair oxidative damage. When a bone fracture occurs, a remarkable yield of free radicals is generated by the damaged tissues. In particular, this damage occurs as the tightly bound collagen strands running through the mineral phase of bone are forcefully broken. …. In such cases, antioxidants — including vitamins E and C, lycopene, and alpha-lipoic acid — have been suggested to be beneficial in suppressing the destructive effect of oxidant free radicals on whole body systems and improving fracture healing in animal models and cultured human cell lines.

    Inflammation is an essential component of the healing process in bone…Vitamin C, bioflavonoids and flavonols such as quercitin and proanthrocydins, and omega-3 fatty acids naturally soothe the inflammatory process and speed healing…

    4. Boost your mineral intake

    By weight, bone is roughly 70% minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, silicon, zinc, etc.) and fracture healing requires available minerals. Most of us under-consume minerals on an everyday basis, so drawing minerals to the healing site can often involve a process of “stealing from Peter to pay Paul.” (See our 20 key bone nutrients for details on average mineral intake.)

    Specific key minerals for fracture healing include the following:

    …. Early research suggested that fractures can heal normally independent of dietary calcium and indeed it has been found that during the first few weeks of healing, calcium is drawn from the skeleton for fracture healing. After that, the diet provides the calcium necessary for fracture repair. Calcium adequacy at the RDA level is important, but unusually high intakes do not appear to speed fracture healing. As calcium absorption is dependent on vitamin D, these nutrients work synergistically. Human studies, in fact, suggest that for best fracture healing both calcium and vitamin D should be obtained in optimum daily levels. Most of us consume plenty of phosphorus and often too much if the diet is high in processed foods and colas. However, the elderly, dieters, and those on low protein diets often do not consume enough phosphorus to meet the needs of new bone formation….

    *see Health: Nutrition-Micronutrients Pt. 4~Vitamins=Trace Minerals goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com

    5. Enhance vitamin intake

    …vitamins are the catalysts for many biochemical reactions and are equally important. In fracture healing, we can clearly identify the vital roles of several vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin K as well as the energy-producing B vitamins, which should all be taken in therapeutic doses:…

I then began to picture the faces of the individuals that God had brought me to after each doctor appointment these last few weeks… and I began to cry. I was so thankful that my silly wrists had created opportunities for me to spread the love of Jesus to people I wouldn’t have otherwise met!

    Besides, I knew the end result was healing so if enduring this silly wrist pain in the meantime was part of the journey God has taken me on as He leads me into His call and plan for my life it was SO worth it!

    As I approached the hospital I could feel the Holy Spirit stirring in me more and more. The closer I got the more I knew I was SUPPOSED to be at that office. Walking in I was smiling at everyone, making eye contact, saying “good morning” – I didn’t want to “miss” anyone in case God had sent me there to minister to them…”

While inside, he noticed a woman whose hand was shaking. As he was waiting to check out, she came up behind him in line with her hand still waving around. “Are you in pain?” he asked. She said she was in a lot of pain because of carpal tunnel. “I just came from a healing conference! Would you like me to pray for you?” he asked. She couldn’t get her hand out to him fast enough she was in so much pain. After a short prayer, the pain was completely gone! The lady was amazed! She was thankful for the chance encounter. The man explained he’d been sent into the store to meet her and pray for her – it was no chance encounter, it was a divine appointment. She walked away healed and feeling known by God!

    So your kids have been joining in anyways, why not make a workout that includes them? Fair warning: you have to show up willing to play.

    You may be familiar with the Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” program. She is on a mission to eradicate childhood obesity, and has invited the faith community to get involved. Of course Revelation Wellness is going to meet that call.

    It is important that we model healthy living to our kids. Even more important it is that we have continual dialogue about WHY God would want us to live healthy & whole lives. We challenge you to explain to them how God’s word is not only our health in being, but also our health in doing. That old adage is true “You are what you eat.”; when we participate in a well balanced diet and exercise plan, we are well fueled to get the task of giving and receiving love well.

    And if we may add one to your list of sayings “What you do, you become.” Making the harder choices is an exercise in obedience. Obedience rarely goes down the path of least resistance. Give your kids an opportunity to “workout” their love for God and others and who they are in Christ, as they feel their bodies heat up and push against that path of most resistance.

    Jesus is the remedy for all of our ailments. We, the church, are the vehicle to dispense his healing love. Start at home first and then let the ripple effect take over.

    Be His.

Affected people have increased muscle tone which leads to spasticity (stiff or tight muscles and exaggerated reflexes) in the legs. The arm muscles are generally less affected or not affected at all. Other signs and symptoms may include delayed motor or movement milestones (i.e. rolling over, sitting, standing); walking on toes; and a “scissored” gait (style of walking).[1][2] It occurs when the portion of the brain that controls movement is damaged or develops abnormally. The exact underlying cause is often unknown; however, the condition has been associated with genetic abnormalities; congenital brain malformations; maternal infections or fevers; and/or injury before, during or shortly after birth.[1][3] There is no cure, and treatment options vary depending on the signs and symptoms present in each person and the severity of the condition…”

    She believes in the power of Physical Therapy when it comes to children with Cerebral Palsy.

    “When we work with children with CP, our ultimate goal is for them to be as functional as they can possibly be and as independent. In order to be able to do those skills and be independent, you have to have the building blocks. What those building blocks are…are getting your range of motion through an acceptable amount, being flexible, being strong, having good balance…so that child can stand and walk and be independent on their own and as they grow older,” says Noreen.

    Woman misdiagnosed with cerebral palsy gets cure after 33 years By Paula Cohen CBS News April 22, 2015, 2:39 PM .cbsnews.com
    “..The 38-year-old Minnesota mother of three was diagnosed as a child with spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder that appears early in life and permanently disrupts the brain’s ability to control movement and balance.

    For more than three decades, Abbott says she suffered from debilitating symptoms. “I could barely move my arms or legs to due to the countless hours of spasms, stiffness and cramping through out my body,” she wrote on her blog. She underwent “countless doctors visits, medical procedures, unnecessary medications and surgeries.”

    Despite the physical challenges, she says she was able to “make friends, go away to college, marry and have children,” and she notes with pride that she managed “to maintain a positive attitude and be a joyful person throughout this whole ordeal.”

    But it turns out the diagnosis was wrong. She never had cerebral palsy.

    In 2010, a new doctor recognized that her symptoms, which never quite fit with the classic signs of cerebral palsy, were actually caused by something else: a rare but treatable condition called dopa-responsive dystonia…”
    Woman Healed of Cerebral Palsy Through Vision

    “…
    “I was His, and He was my Dad — and that was it forever,” she declares. “I just thought that if I was born with cerebral palsy, I must be born with it because God created me that way. I didn’t realize He wanted people healed. I didn’t realize He wanted good things for everyone, so, at first, I just thought, Well, there’s got to be a reason for it. He’s smarter than I am.”

    During her teenage years, Marlene suffered numerous spasms caused by muscular surgery. These attacks were sometimes so violent they left her attendants with broken bones. After one severe spasm, Marlene was left almost totally paralyzed. Her vision, along with the rest of her condition, grew progressively worse.

    In December 1980, as a last resort, Marlene was taken from her home in Missouri to the world’s finest hospital, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

    Her former nurse, Nancy White, remembers her condition. “Marlene was a spastic quadriplegic and pretty much depended on other people to provide for her needs. She needed someone to help her get in and out of bed, in and out of her wheelchair, and to help her go to the bathroom. She was pretty much dependent to the point where she really didn’t do a lot physically herself.”
    ….

    Emerson had never had a miracle take place in his church.

    “They gathered around me to pray,” Marlene remembers, “and the pastor said, ‘I don’t know how to pray.’ But he asked God to heal me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. And then they asked if I wanted to stand up on faith.”

    “Immediately upon lifting her out of the chair, we began to feel strength coming into her legs,” says Emerson. ..”

    “..It was in the hospital that we witnessed the spirit and fight she carries with her to this day. We had a few big scares while we were there, but that hospital was also the place where we first saw her smile, the place where we first held her. All the nurses called her a “fiery little one.” The miracles continued, and during that time, we learned about all of the terrible things that could have happened. Through the many challenges we faced, this knowledge left us with an overwhelming sense of gratitute—for our loving God, family and community that surround us.

    When Noa was 1 year old, we noticed that as time was passing, so were some of the important milestones she should have been reaching. At a year old, Noa wasn’t able to support her weight enough to sit up. Her legs were tight, and she wasn’t using her hands the way we would have hoped. It took one visit to a neurologist to receive a diagnosis of spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy that causes the legs to be riddled with spasticity. Because of this condition, she also has little muscle tone in her torso.

    Fitness: How to teach kids ice skating?

    Kids getting antsy during the long winter season? Instead of them playing video games indoors, get them outside to ice skate! How to teach them?

    When I took my 8 yr. old nephew to the John Oval in Roseville (Minnesota), one of the first tips I gave is how to dress. I asked him if he had the right pair of gloves. It’s better to have “water resistant” gloves instead of the material that might soak water. In fact, my nephew was wearing jeans. I told him it would’ve been better to wear wind pants over his jeans or snow pants as an alternative. This is because when you are skating for the first time, you’ll fall and get ice all over. Thus, it’ll melt and go through your “non-water resistant” pants. The child might get wet and start getting cold, which might get him/her sick.

    Health: Be more safe in Swimming Pools?

    Fancy a chemical bath? How chlorinated swimming pools can trigger asthma, ruin teeth and turn hair green
    “…‘I have been campaigning to change the way we keep our swimming pools clean for the past 25 years,’ says Dr Wright.

    ‘I regularly see people who suffer severe skin problems triggered by even the normal amounts of chlorine in swimming pools. Many of my patients can’t go swimming because the chlorinated pool water dries skin and irritates eczema so badly.’
    SPLASH! SWIMMING FACTS

    The world’s first swimming pool was at Mohenjo-Daro in Pakistan.

    Built in 2500 BC, it was lined with bricks covered in a tar-like sealant

    ‘There are other, gentler ways of disinfecting swimming pools – such as ozone filtration, which involves pumping oxygen, in the form of ozone gas, through the water and then filtering it.’

    The problem, in fact, is not chlorine itself, but the chemical by-products – chloramines – that occur when chlorine combines with nitrogen in the dirt and detritus found in swimming pools, such as skin particles, sweat, urine, bacteria and body oils.

    Dr Wright adds: ‘It’s these toxic by-products that give off that tell-tale “bleach” smell we associate with swimming pools and cause problems.’

    The stronger the smell, the more unhealthy the pool is likely to be. Have a shower before swimming to remove any make up, dry skin flakes, hair products and body lotion. These residues can also react with the chlorine to create chloramine irritants.

    An occasional swim is unlikely to do much harm, unless you are particularly sensitive to chlorine. But experts suggest anyone who swims once a week or more should be wary.

    The Secret Danger of Swimming Pools

    I try to swim outdoors more during the summer as I prefer “fresher” “natural” water; however, it doesn’t mean it’s “always” clean:

    Summer swimming comes with reminder of deadly lake ameoba
    Advances in treating the deadly but rare infection make it even more important for swimmers and doctors to understand the symptoms, health officials say.
    By Jeremy Olson Star Tribune July 14, 2017 — 12:22am startribune.com
    “..The last two confirmed cases of infections caused by Naegleria fowleri in Minnesota occurred in Lily Lake in Stillwater in 2010 and 2012 and resulted in the deaths of children ages 7 and 9, while a suspected case involving a teen swimming in Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood in 2015 turned out to be unrelated…

    “There’s always the risk of it being in warm freshwater,” she said, “but it increases as water temperatures increase and water levels decrease — kind of in the dog days of summer.”..

    A May 2017 study in the journal Pediatric Neurology noted that 13 children have now survived their amoebic infections after receiving the medications. However, two children died despite receiving the drug.

    Infections from Naegleria fowleri occur when water carrying the amoeba travels up the swimmer’s nose and olfactory nerves to the brain; prevention tips include using nose plugs or plugging your nose when jumping into a lake. The amoeba usually resides in the murky sediment of lake bottoms, so health officials also suggest that swimmers avoid churning up the ground beneath their feet.

    The amoeba also thrives in warmer waters, which is why it has been a more common problem in the South…”
