  • Welcome 2018! My New Year's Resolution

    by Paula Gallagher | January 2, 2018

    family-mealBy the time you read this, many Americans will have already defaulted on their New Year's resolutions and we are only into day 2! In our household, we don't typically make resolutions (well, not on New Year's anyway). We try not to wait until New Year's Eve to try something new. Each day that we wake up is a new day, a day to start over, make changes, and to be happy. You don't need to wait for tomorrow, a new year, Monday or Friday.

    However, this year I am making one. It is a simple idea but I know it will be challenging. Read more

  • Event: Free Seminar on Vitamins, Minerals and Your Child’s Health - May 16

    by Paula Gallagher | May 8, 2017

    Vitamins, Minerals and Your Child’s HealthEvery day I send my kids to school with strawberries, carrots, blueberries, cukes and carrots... and many days they come right back. Even trying my best, my kids won’t always eat what I wish they would, so this is when I turn to supplements. I realize that nothing can replace the quality, variety and even the availability of nutrients found in food, and in no way are supplements a replacement for a proper meal. But I also don’t want to my children to be deficient in important nutrients.

    If you are like me and have children who turn their noses up at all things green, and you need to make a decision about what to do to ensure your kids aren't missing out on vitamins and minerals, here is a free seminar in the Washington DC Metro area. Read more

  • 5 Tips to Get Your Kids to Eat Their Vegetables

    by Paula Gallagher | March 28, 2017

    kids-vegetablesThis is a daily struggle in my household. My kids love fruits but getting them to branch out and try different vegetables is hard and I know I'm not alone. In the past I have hidden vegetables in sauces and soups so I could ensure my kids had a more balanced meal, however, research shows that hiding veggies is not the best way to promote lifelong healthy eating. In order to do that, we have to build a child’s taste for veggies that will last them into adulthood, choosing healthy choices for life. I still hide them when I can just to get them into their bodies, but I also try and follow these tips to get my kids to eat their vegetables.

    1. Stick an apron on them. Studies show that kids who are involved in meal preparation will try different foods and generally prefer fruits and vegetables and overall healthy food choices. Plus, measuring ingredients can help with math skills too! Get the kids in the kitchen to help out as much as possible, and choose age-appropriate tasks. Good tasks for little ones include tearing lettuce, mixing ingredients, and helping to set the table. Read more

  • Free Seminar: How to Help Your Kids Thrive in Our Toxic (and Nutrient Deficient) World

    by Paula Gallagher | February 14, 2017

    kids-outsideAs parents, we know that our children are facing a different world than we did, and the research is accumulating on how this impacts our kids both with short- and long-term health effects. Environmental toxins are bad for everyone – adults and children, and even our pets. But children lack the detoxification mechanisms that adults have developed, and when children are exposed to chemicals, their smaller body size means they’re exposed to chemicals at a much higher rate than adults.

    Babies, toddlers and young children play on the floor indoors and on grass outdoors. They frequently put toys that may contain toxic chemicals into their mouths. Read more
