New Crib Guidelines For Vancouver Parents

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

New Crib Guidelines For Vancouver Parents

First time Vancouver parents have many issues to deal with as they prepare for the arrival of their little one, but nothing is more important than crib safety. The federal government has issued new guidelines for crib manufacturers.

As of June 28, 2011, all cribs manufactured and sold in Vancouver and nationally must meet the new standards. The guidelines also apply to used cribs that are resold. Deadly drop-side rail cribs are now prohibited. The new rules also affect crib slat strength, mattress supports, hardware and the amount of testing required.

The new crib guidelines can be found at:

Turn Your Car Into A Mobile Delta Office If you are a busy Vancouver home based business owner, you may have noticed that your work-at-home job has turned into a work-in-car job. I have been operating a direct marketing business out of my Delta home since March 2008, but I spend a considerable amount of time on the road in the V4M 1Z9 zip code area.

One day, I realized that the back seat was covered with Peanut Butter Cups samples, the floor was covered with Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage brochures, and the dash was covered with sticky notes.

I have a beautiful office in my Delta home: it is organized, comfortable and well-supplied. Why couldn’t I create a mobile version of my home office in my car?

I got to work. I headed out to my closest Delta office supply store. I purchased a hanging file folder for paperwork and sturdy plastic boxes to organize samples in my trunk. (One of my Peanut Butter Cups team members uses heavy cardboard banker’s boxes to hold samples. She thinks they are easier to label.)

Next I had to tackle the little stuff: paper clips, sticky notes, and pens. I found that cup holders can be great organizers.

If you want to invest in gadgets for your car office, there are endless possibilities:

  • Car desks that are secured with a seat belt
  • Car printers
  • Wireless mouse you direct with your thumb
  • Device that turns your cigarette lighter into a USB port

To be a successful Peanut Butter Cups network marketer in Delta, I need to be ready when a sales or recruiting opportunity unexpectedly presents itself. Now that my car office is organized, I am much better at capitalizing on these opportunities.

To learn how to expand your Vancouver MLM network, call me today. The Peanut Butter Cups opportunity is providing residual income for Vancouver entrepreneurs just like you.

P.S. It may be a good idea to tell your Vancouver auto insurance provider that you use your car for more than commuting. Some carriers don’t cover claims for vehicles that are used as mobile offices. Discuss your situation with your agent to protect yourself and your Delta business.

Langley Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Langley Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

One of the best things you can do for your Langley 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 Langley families?

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 our Langley kids eat better than most of us Langley 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 high in antioxidants and taste like candy. To try Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage, contact me today.

AAP Immunization Information For Richmond Parents In the past century, the rates of many serious diseases in the United States have significantly declined, in some cases, they have been virtually eradicated.

Many Richmond people have never met a person with measles, polio, small pox, rubella, tetanus, or diphtheria; though these diseases killed thousands of BC children in past generations.

One of the main reasons many dangerous communicable childhood diseases have been minimized in our area is due to Vancouver children’s immunizations. The increase in immunization use has gone a long way to improve health in our BC communities.

Recently, I have noticed that many Richmond parents are questioning the children’s immunization schedule. I came across an informative American Academy of Pediatrics FAQ sheet that addresses most of the common concerns.

The AAP document entitled ‘The Vaccine Schedule, Why Is It Like That?,’ can be downloaded at http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/immunizations.cfm

I certainly learned a lot after reading the FAQ sheet and thought I would tell you about it here in my Richmond children’s health blog.

I think it is important for all Richmond parents like myself to be reminded of the scientific evidence that supports the use of the immunization schedule.

I am Richmond children’s health advocate Phil Hoskins. Call me at 604.943.8598 to learn about my favorite healthy snack for BC kids.

The Science of Xocai Health Claims In Delta BC

   Posted by: Phil    in Home Business

The Science of Xocai Health Claims In Delta BC

Many people in Delta BC have asked questions about the science of Xocai. “Does Xocai Have ANY Science Behind It’s Health Claims?” is a question that has been asked more than once in BC.

The answer is ‘Yes’, there is science behind the notion of ‘healthy chocolate’. Xocai is one of several companies selling healthy chocolate for the health benefits, and while there are many things you can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eating chocolate is certainly one of them.

Are we advocating that you run down to your nearest Delta BC grocery store and buy a few candy bars for lunch? Absolutely not. There are some specific ways to each chocolate that are deemed healthy. Chocolate, after all, is a natural substance, and when it is prepared in a natural way, it can be a healthy treat.

One of the unique ways that Xocai prepares healthy chocolate is by a method called ‘cold press’. This means we don’t heat our chocolate in the process of making it, which allows it to maintain most of it’s natural state. We also avoid adding lots of sugars and other unnecessary ingredients, helping to reduce the impact of your snack.

Her is a quick review and some links to the science and studies behind Xocai’s healthy chocolate, and a few of the reasons why I like to seel this in my business. It may not be for everyone, but if you are looking for a healthy chocolate snack, Xocai is a leader and provides a great product.

NOTE that many of these studies regard Xocai chocolate, specifically, however that many are for natural chocolate including cacao or cocoa in its natural form.

First, here is a clinical study on the effects of Xocai chocolate on  Atherosclerosis: Atherosclerosis Risk by Dr. Eliot Brinton, MD (Chair, Cardiovascular Genetics, University of Utah) — April 2008 http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/bye/sQoPWw4lZX-HWB7Ju67PL/fVcGS6hzZiNGFB-HvB1nJPcHu61PeB-RvnGHuQ16zwUgeio5JdcBJH1PkQt “Effects of Xoçai Antioxidant Supplements on Atherosclerosis Risk Factors” Overview: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00666250

Here is an audio testimonial regarding a study on Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, Hyperglycemia, and HDL/LDL from Dr. Brinton: http://adampaulgreen.com/listen/interview-with-elliott-brinton/ http://mychocolatepod.com/interview-with-dr-elliott-brinton/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPiIRWGIVIY Results include:

  1. Increased vascular reactivity
  2. Improved arterial compliance
  3. Increased HDL-C levels,
  4. Decreased oxidation of LDL, and
  5. Reduced insulin resistance

…here is a link to the online paper: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/study/NCT00666250?show_desc=Y#desc

There have been a few studies regarding Xocai chocolate and Weight Loss. Dr. Mike Kennedy, MD and Dr. Steve Warren, MD did a study in June 2010 regarding weight loss and Xocai chocolate, specifically. You can read the overview here: http://www.mxicorp.com/weightlosssystem/ http://adampaulgreen.com/listen/interview-with-dr-steve-warren/ There is a video explaination, here: http://www.mxicorp.com/weightlosssystem/index.php?video=weightloss

The Results of the Xocai weight loss study are posted here: http://www.mxicorp.com/custom/library/weightloss/results.pdf The 12 Week Study included 50 Participants with a Total Pounds Lost equalling 1,569.9 pounds.

Here is a PDF document explaining the Xocai weight loss study: http://www.mxicorp.com/custom/library/weightloss/docstudy.pdf

There are other studies, too, including raw data about Xocai’s chocolate ORAC scores and the Brunswick Labs seal of superior quality. You can read abou those here: http://www.mxicorp.com/thewholestory/index.php?video=wholestory%20http://www.mxicorp.com/healthychocolate/

The bottom line is that chocolate can be healthy for you, and Xocai has an excellent product that will help you satisfy your cravings without adding lots of sugar or junk food to your diet. Xocai is a good company, working to deliver a good product. It may not be for you, but lots of people love Chocolate and want a good, high-quality and healthy alternative to what they might find on their convenience store shelves. Xocai chocolate is a good healthy alternative.

F-A-R For Surrey Kids With Asthma

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

F-A-R For Surrey Kids With Asthma Attention Surrey parents of children with asthma: Johns Hopkins Children’s Center recommends the FAR approach to prevent flare-ups. FAR stands for Flu shot, Avoid triggers, and Regular use of meds.1

Flu Shot: Respiratory infections are dangerous for Surrey children with asthma. The flu shot lowers the risk of catching a bug and also helps lessen complications for those who do get the flu.
Avoid triggers: Surrey parents of asthmatic kids should determine the triggers and protect their child at their home, Surrey school, and wherever their child spends time.
Regular Medication: The meds referred to are the controller or prevention medications, not the rescue meds designed for use after an attack is in progress.

The Johns Hopkins article also reminds parents to be extra careful when the seasons change–a common time for an increase in attacks.

Is My BC Baby Ready For Solids?

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Is My BC Baby Ready For Solids?

Although Richmond pediatricians generally recommend starting infants on solid foods when they are around six months of age, there are important developmental milestones that must be reached before your baby can take this step.

Even if an infant’s digestive system is ready for solid food, the baby must be able to safely swallow it. A baby should be able to sit with assistance but hold his or head up on their own. Without head and neck control, eating solids is difficult and dangerous. Many Richmond pediatricians also advise parents to wait until an infant shows interest in what other family members are eating.

If you are unsure if your infant is ready for solid food, check with your Richmond pediatrician. Remember that for the first year your baby’s nutrition will still come primarily from breast milk or formula.

My name is Phil Hoskins. I am an advocate for children’s health and nutrition in Richmond. I also sell Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage, a nutritional powerhouse. For more information on Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage, call me today at 604.943.8598.
