Why not do something that is not political and benefits our society, our kids.

We have major obesity epidemic with over 200 million American considered obese or fat of which 12 million are kids.

This would be considered an American cause.

You see, “we are feeding our kids to death” and “obesity is an equal opportunity menace” it does not matter if you are republican, democrat, man, woman, boy, girl, liberal, tea party, gay, black, white, or Hispanic etc…
 

Now that we had our election we have chosen our president. Regardless of your parties affiliation one thing is for sure, we all love our kids. We all talk about our future, as a nation our future are our kids. Here is letter I received from our First Lady, Mrs. Obama who started the fight to stamp out the obesity epidemic, a dreadful disease. Let’s Move to help her help our kids. See how Billy our protagonist in the book” The Chubby Conqueror” is inspired and motivated.

Teach our kids the life style change they deserve. Lets UN-TEACH them the bad eating habits and show them how to stay fit. Come and join me in TrimLand at www.trimland.net. You can also like us on www.facebook.com/mytrimland

6 ways to help kids have a healthy relationship with food

by Administrator26. October 2012 15:27

As a mom who knows too much about our food system and the potential hazards to my children, I struggle to maintain a smile when my kids are handed red food-dyed snacks at soccer practice or served Coke at a birthday party. I was worried I had forever damaged them by cringing around certain food products. So the fact that my son understands that healthful foods are better choices, but that all food is okay in small doses, makes me sigh with relief. Many children grow up with eating disorders and unhealthy associations to food. So how do we help our kids have a healthy relationship to food?

Here are a few simple suggestions:

1  Food, especially unhealthful food, shouldn’t be used as a reward. The common incentive used by parents “Eat your vegetables so you can have dessert” clearly communicates to children that vegetables are to be avoided and desserts are to be desired.

2 Food should not be used as a punishment either. Taking away dessert as discipline teaches kids that dessert is the prize.

3 Labeling a food as “bad” can cause children to feel guilty or bad themselves when they eat it. Instead label unhealthful foods “sometimes foods,” as they really are the foods we should eat only sometimes.

4 Unhealthful foods shouldn’t be labeled “treats” either. Wouldn’t it be great if our kids perceived a delicious ripe peach or a slice of summer watermelon as a treat?

5 A child forced to eat may not learn what it feels like to be hungry or full, or how to listen to his body. Sometimes kids are not hungry. That’s okay. Don’t then force them to eat five more bites.

6 Teaching children that a holiday or celebration is about spending time with friends, participating in a fun activity or being active together, instead of simply consuming a lot of food and drink, is an important message. When our kids are teenagers and win a sports championship, or when they are adults and receive a promotion, we hope they will understand that celebrating does not need to be focused on excessive consumption of food and drink.

So as much as I’d love to tell my children that they should never eat at McDonald’s and always refuse soda and fluorescent food products, that’s not a healthy message. And knowing most kids, it might make them more determined to get their paws on those forbidden fruits!

So what is the right message to our kids?

The right message is that certain foods nourish our bodies, make us strong and help us feel good. We should fill our bodies with those foods when we are hungry at a meal. Other foods don’t do those wonderful things for us, so we should eat them on occasion. All food should be enjoyed.

Then, if you are like me, hide your grimaced face and keep your mouth shut when they dive into those Spider-Man snacks because “sometimes foods” are absolutely okay sometimes.

The Chubby Conqueror

by Administrator26. October 2012 15:24

 

 

Based on the story of Billy, an overweight 12-year-old, “The Chubby Conqueror” teaches the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle in an accessible, motivating story. "Everyone who's read the book has been impressed with it," Knoll says. "It's about inspiration. It doesn't say you can't eat; it's basically just mind over matter." Knoll likens the concept to that of an Olympian. "What makes a champion is first wanting it and visualizing it. You've got to see yourself being there," he explains. "It's the same concept with “The Chubby Conqueror”—you've got to train your mind, and your body will follow." There are no quick fixes for weight loss, and Knoll knows it. "You didn't gain the weight overnight,” he said. “None of us did. The book is about inspiration."

A Healthier Ever After

by Administrator20. April 2012 10:00


 

Once upon a time, fairy tales and nursery rhymes painted vivid pictures of happily-ever-after, and the promise of a bright future. We were swept away, as children, by dreams of happily ever after, and enchanted by the magic of fairies and witches. But happily ever afters don’t come from a fairy’s magic wand–we have to make them ourselves. A magical life begins by taking personal responsibility for creating a healthy life, and making choices every day that lead us to feeling light and vibrant. A Healthier Ever After presents a path to a healthier, happier future.

Healthy living is a mindset. The choices we repeatedly make become our habits, and improving these habits takes a blend of motivation and education. A Healthier Ever After illustrates how each of us can create a mindset of health, learning new lessons from some old friends–a cast of characters borrowed from literary lore. Together, they demonstrate how our daily choices sculpt our health and the health of our families and our society. The time to set the right course is now–for yourself, for your loved ones, and for your children.
