3 Tips For Improving Sierra Vista Kids’ Attention Spans

Sierra Vista immunization schedule

Hello Arizona parents! Today in the Sierra Vista Children’s Health Blog, we are going to look at various ways to lengthen kids’ attention spans. An increased attention span can improve learning ability as well as behavior and is an important aspect of kids health in Sierra Vista.

1. Find an activity that will hold their attention. This might mean that you need to experiment with different types of toys and crafts. One child might enjoy building blocks while another may become engrossed in an art project. There are many craft and hobby stores in the Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, and Sierra Vista area where parents can get great ideas.

2. Recorded stories are a wonderful resource for increasing attention spans. Have your child lie on the floor and close their eyes, then play a recorded story. When it’s finished, have your child retell the story to you. Local Hereford libraries are perfect for finding recorded books and stories. Or you can download audio books for your iPad or other electronic reader.

3. Make sure that your child is using age-appropriate toys, crafts, and media. Age recommendations can be very helpful when deciding what activities will effectively engage your child.

Remember that it’s natural for different children to have varying attention spans, but the attention span of all kids should improve with age.

Video Game Exercising In Sierra Vista

Video Game Exercising In Sierra Vista

Welcome to the Healthy Sierra Vista Children blog. This site is for Sierra Vista parents who are concerned about the health of Arizona children. Today’s article looks at fitness video games.

If your child would rather exercise their thumb on a gaming console than shoot some hoops or kick a soccer ball, they might enjoy Wii, Playstation, and Xbox games that require them to move their body to play the game. If players enjoy the game, they will probably not mind (or notice) sweating a little bit.

Of course, you will need the necessary accessories to play these fitness games. Your nearest Sierra Vista Target, Wal-Mart or Best Buy probably has everything you need for your gaming system.

I perused the internet to see which games came up on game review sites. The following are bestsellers:

EA Sports Active
Punch-Out!
Dance Dance Revolution
Gold’s Gym Cardio and Dance Workout
Kinect Sports Review
Nickelodeon Fit
Wii Fit

By providing a variety of exercise choices for our Sierra Vista children, we can encourage them to get some exercise every day. (You may also enjoy playing them with your child, but be prepared to lose.)

4 Benefits Of Arizona Skate Parks

Sierra Vista kids shot schedule

Kids love to move, and if given opportunities to participate in activities they enjoy, most will get regular exercise. Hereford youth who exercise and eat a healthy diet are less likely to be overweight.

If your child likes to skateboard, in-line skate, or ride a scooter, then you should check out the skate parks in the area. While no activity involving wheels is completely risk-free, skate parks have several advantages.

1. Skate parks provide an area away from moving vehicles.
2. No one should ever skate or ride a scooter alone, so the communal nature of a skate park is a built-in safety feature.
3. Skating in business and public areas is usually prohibited because of safety hazards and the damage that results from skating on stairs, ledges, handrails, and other structures.
4. Skate park features are designed by professionals, unlike homemade jumps, half pipes, ramps, and rails.

Children using Hereford area skate parks should be familiar with and abide by all posted rules. In addition, participants should wear helmets and other protective gear.

My name is Derrick Winkel and I am passionate about kids health in Sierra Vista. I want to help Hereford area families discover outdoor activities that provide a fun way to exercise.

I sell Xobiotic Squares. If you would like to learn more about this residual income opportunity, please contact me at 801.437.5994.

4 Things Your Sierra Vista Pediatrician Wants You To Know

Sierra Vista Kids Vitamins

The health of their children is a top priority for parents in the Sierra Vista, Tombstone, and Fort Huachuca areas, and that’s why having a good relationship with your child’s pediatrician is important. From well-child check-ups to children’s immunizations to flu shots, these healthcare providers are there when parents need them.

Today in the Sierra Vista Children’s Health Blog, we want to give you a look into some of the issues facing pediatricians, especially those issues that they may have difficulty discussing with parents.

1. A cold is a cold is a cold, even if they call it something different. There are lots of names for the common cold, like “viral rhinosinusitis” or “purulent rhinitis”. They might sound fancy, but if your kids has it, it really just means they have a cold. Many pediatricians use these terms so parents don’t feel like their being sent away from the office with an overly-simple diagnosis.

2. Old wives’ tales and internet health sites are no substitutes for professional medical advice! There are many rumors that have no scientific basis, but some patients insist on bringing their child in because an older member of the family noticed something (think green snot or ear tugging). Also, while the internet is filled with great information, it is also teeming with sensationalized and nonscientific sites that can be downright dangerous. Pediatricians just want parents to be safe and well-informed when choosing how to treat their child.

3. Fevers are scary, but for children over 3 months old, there is no magic number where a fever becomes dangerous. However, accompanying symptoms like lethargy, rash, or inconsolable crying are cause for concern.

4. Scheduling is not an exact science.
No one likes to camp out in the waiting room, but, once in a while, a patient requires a little extra care, and this can throw the schedule off for the day. However, one day that patient may be your child, and you’ll want that schedule-ruining extra care as well.

My name is Derrick Winkel and I want to help Hereford families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity are often on my mind. I am the owner of a direct sales Hereford area home business that sells Xobiotic Squares.

Do You Know Your Sierra Vista Child’s BMI?

Sierra Vista Kids Vitamins

Because of widespread health issues such as childhood obesity in Fort Huachuca, there has been a lot of discussion about BMI or Body Mass Index. However, some parents in the Sierra Vista and Tombstone area aren’t quite sure what this number is, what it represents, and why it is important.

Each time you take your child to your Hereford pediatrician for a well child check-up, you are given statistics regarding your child’s growth. BMI is a growth statistic that uses height and weight to estimate a person’s body fat.

BMI can then help Sierra Vista parents and pediatricians know if a child’s weight is appropriate.

If your Sierra Vista area pediatrician does not measure BMI, there are many free calculators on the internet that are easy to use and can give you an accurate measure. Once you have a BMI calculated for your child, it’s a good idea to share this information with your child’s doctor and make any changes that your doctor recommends.

Children with a high BMI are usually instructed to:

Be active for at least 60 minutes each day
Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day for proper nutrition
Limit soda
Practice appropriate portion sizes

Healthy kids are happy kids, and I love helping Sierra Vista, Tombstone, and Fort Huachuca parents establish healthy habits. My name is Derrick Winkel and I am the owner of my own Sierra Vista home business that sells Xobiotic Squares.

As Hereford kids get older, they often are able to help out around the house. Giving kids more responsibility is essential to their health and development, but parents should be sure to know what responsibilities their children are ready for, especially when it comes to working in the yard.

Mowing the lawn is  a weekly chore for many Hereford families, and most parents are happy to turn this job over to an older child. However, parents should be absolutely sure that their child is old enough (and mature enough) to safely operate the machinery. After all, we’re talking about sharp, motorized blades whirring within arm’s length of our child’s legs and feet. Because these machines are commonplace, many parents forget how dangerous they are. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be at least twelve years of age before using a walk-behind mower and sixteen for ride-on mowers. Of course, this doesn’t mean that every teen is capable of safely mowing the lawn, these are only general guidelines.

Anyone operating a mower should wear sturdy shoes instead of sandals. Remove objects from the lawn such as toys and small rocks before mowing, and insist that your child wear eye protection while they mow.

Regardless of who is cutting the grass at your Sierra Vista, Tombstone, or Sierra Vista home, young children should not be outside playing while the mower is running.

3 Easy Ways For Sierra Vista Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Sierra Vista kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Sierra Vista, Tombstone, and Fort Huachuca area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even kids.

Antioxidants work their magic by protecting cells from free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines.

Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You might remember from chemistry class that this is the same process that causes an apple slice to turn brown. During oxidation in the cells, DNA can be damaged and changed, which can create the beginnings of disease. A chain reaction of damage can also occur with one damaged molecule becomes a free radical itself and then damages another, and so on.

Now that you know their importance, here are 3 great ways to get more antioxidants into your kids’ diets.

1. Get more veggies on their plates at dinner time and in their lunch boxes

2. Make fruit the snack of choice for your family

3. When buying processed snacks, choose those fortified with antioxidants.

Healthy Sierra Vista Pantries For Healthy Sierra Vista Kids

Healthy Sierra Vista Pantries For Healthy Sierra Vista Kids

Parents in the Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, and Sierra Vista area want healthy, happy kids, but it can sometimes feel like you’re fighting a losing battle trying to get your kids to eat right.

One way to ensure your family makes good food choices is to shop and stock your pantry with healthy food in mind. Before you head out to your local Hereford super market, sit down and make a healthy shopping list. Even if you are confident that you know what you need, taking the time to write it out will help you plan meals, make healthy choices, and avoid impulse buys.

Once you are in the store, stick to your list and pick up the healthy items first. Fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and dairy are usually located around the perimeter of Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, and Sierra Vista super markets, so circle the store first before you head to the processed and preserved foods in the center aisles.

Your pantry should be stocked with healthy staples for meals your kids will eat. Make sure that your kids can easily get to healthy, quick snacks like nuts, whole-grain crackers, and dried fruit.

And don’t forget the fridge! Healthy snacks should be at eye-level for your children. Sliced fruit, bite-sized veggies, yogurt, string cheese, berries, and other fresh foods are great snack options for healthy, active (and busy!) Sierra Vista kids.

Organic Best For Hereford Kids

Organic Best For Hereford Kids

Food labels can be confusing for Hereford parents wanting to buy the most nutritious food possible for their families. The word ‘natural’ can convey wholesomeness–but that’s not always the case.

Look for more specific food labels like ‘organic’ which means, in fruits and vegetables, that the food is grown without pesticides. Some evidence suggests that organic fruits and vegetables contain higher amounts of vitamin C and other nutrients than non-organic.

The organic label on poultry, meat, and dairy means that no antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides are given to the animals, and the livestock are given only organic feed. ‘Organic’ livestock also must have access to the outdoors, and disease is prevented through natural methods.

‘Natural’ isn’t a term regulated by the FDA, so products with this label may still contain additives. Instead, look for the USDA organic badge, a guarantee that there is no high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oil, genetically modified ingredients, or artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

Hereford children and infants are the most vulnerable to hormone and pesticide exposure due to their less-developed immune systems and their still-developing brains and bodies. Hereford parents who provide organic food support their child’s health now and in the future.

Relaxation Techniques For Hereford Kids

Relaxation Techniques For Hereford Kids

One of the hardest things for any Sierra Vista parent is to watch their kids struggle with life’s difficulties. It’s not always fun and games being a kid, and it is normal even for healthy children to struggle with stress and anxiety–whether from illness, pain, social situations, or academic pressures.

Here are some techniques that Hereford parents can teach their kids to help relieve anxiety and stress. Of course, if parents in the 85635 zip code area feel their child is abnormally stressed or anxious, they can talk about this with their child’s Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, or Sierra Vista pediatrician.

One technique for stress relief is meditative breathing. Sit comfortably and then concentrate on breathing slowly and deeply, making sure the abdomen is moving, and not only the chest. Count slowly to 3 or 4 as you inhale, and then the same for the exhale. Try to focus all thoughts on breathing–the feel and the sound of it. When other thoughts enter your mind, try to let them float out again like a balloon. This technique helps to relax, and relieves stress and anxiety from the body and mind.

Another useful technique is mindfulness.

With the practice of mindfulness, Hereford parents and children will be able to elicit a relaxed and open response even in the most stressful situations. Mindfulness involves becoming completely aware of every aspect of any experience. Practice in non-stressful situations first–you can even do it while eating dinner. Notice every detail of your food–the feel, the color, the sound, the taste.

Such healthy mindfulness practice can translate this way in a stressful situation: say your child is at his Hereford school and is experiencing anxiety during a test. Practicing mindfulness, your child will notice the anxious feelings (cold and sweaty palms, shallow breathing, etc.), the feel of the paper in his hands, the students around him, etc. As your child notices and acknowledges these things, rather than fearing and avoiding them, they won’t be as frightening. Your child will learn that these things are part of life in Hereford and that they are okay.

Life is a challenge for Hereford parents and kids alike. Sierra Vista parents can give valuable tools to their children to help them stay happy, safe, and healthy on this journey of life!

My name is Derrick Winkel and kids health in Sierra Vista is a passion of mine. I am concerned with issues such as vaccinations and childhood obesity in Fort Huachuca.
