Vancouver Mega-Meals: Don't Eat The Whole Thing!

It’s no wonder that many Delta children and teens struggle with weight issues. What is considered a ‘normal’ food portion has been getting bigger and bigger. In some cases, as with gargantuan Delta fast food soft drinks and Vancouver Costco muffins-on-steroids, it is absolutely ridiculous. And extremely unhealthy.

The findings from three large national surveys demonstrate:

‘Hamburgers have expanded by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger; soft drinks have increased in size by 52 percent, snacks, whether they be potato chips, pretzels or crackers, are 60 percent larger.’1

Delta restaurants and Vancouver food and beverage manufacturers are not the only ones sabotaging our children. Portion sizes have increased in homes, also.

If Delta parents are going to help their children maintain a healthy weight, learning proper portion sizes is critical. If we don’t know the size of a healthy portion, how can we teach our children?

The Mayo Clinic website has a great slide show that helps Vancouver parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/portion-control/NU00267

To order a terrific nutritional product for Vancouver kids, call me today!

Teaching Vancouver Kids How To Budget

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Richmond Kids Vitamins

There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no independence quite so important, as living within your means.
-Calvin Coolidge

The 30th President of the United States was right to hold living within ones means in such high estate, and parents in the Delta area should start teaching their children the value and responsibility of money early in life.

A good way to introduce the concept of the budget is to help your child to only spend 70% of what they earn or are given in allowance. Break up the other 30% this way: 20% for savings and 10% for charity. You can give your child different jars to keep the money in different “accounts”, or open up their own real savings account at any Richmond, Surrey, or Langley bank or credit union, provided they are old enough.

Surrey parents should take time to discuss savings with their child each time they divide their earnings. You can talk about reasons to save, such as waiting to buy an expensive toy or preparing for college.

Your child can be very creative with the 10% of the money meant for charity. Allow them to make the choice of where to give this amount and you will see them gaining a better sense of awareness of people who are in need (or, as the case often is for many Vancouver children, animals who are in need).

Even at a very young age, kids can begin to understand that money is a responsibility and better enjoyed when it is not all spent immediately.

My name is Phil Hoskins and I am passionate about kids health in Richmond. I want to help Vancouver area parents to raise happy, healthy kids who can go on to enjoy living within their means.

I own a successful Delta home based business that sells Peanut Butter Cups. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 604.943.8598. We can discuss one of the many children’s health issues that is important to me, such as children’s nutrition, childhood obesity, and immunizations.

Healhy Skin Cream In Delta BC

When others in Delta BC look at you, the first thing they notice that tells whether you’re old, young, or healthy, is your skin. The skin portrays beauty and youth or the signs of deterioration and age.

Richmond Kids Health

Parents in the Vancouver and Surrey areas are continually looking for ways to improve their children’s health and well-being. Today in the Delta Kid’s Health Blog, we want to give you four simple ways to do this with children’s nutrition suggestions.

1. Buying healthy snacks for your kids is pretty simple these days. Most Vancouver supermarkets are packed with fresh fruit and veggies year-round along with low-fat cheese, nuts, and whole grain crackers. But, as you put those groceries away, remember to consider location, location, location. If your kids can’t find the healthy stuff, they’re not going to eat it. Place fruits at children’s eye-level in the fridge and other healthy snacks at the same height in the pantry.

2. Keep treats treats. When something is given to a child every day (or even two or three times a day!), like candy, it stops being a treat. When it’s time to indulge, make it a special occasion where the family joins in. You could take a trip to one of the great ice cream parlors in Richmond after a family game night, or stop for milkshakes after an afternoon at the park. Just keep the frequency of these outings low enough that each time it happens, it’s still a treat.

3. Speak up to other Vancouver parents about what you want offered to your child. As the snack list for soccer games is passed around, suggest specifying what should be included and what shouldn’t (i.e. orange slices good! doughnuts bad!). Chances are, other parents have been hoping someone would clarify the issue and set some healthy standards.

4. Set a good example. If you’re complaining about the veggies in your meal (or if your spouse is) the kids will follow, and then some.

Sneaky Veggies For Vancouver Kids

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Sneaky Veggies For Vancouver Kids

Vancouver parents: when you put a serving of broccoli or zucchini on your son’s or daughter’s plate, does your kid gobble it down, or stare at it like it’s a pile of alien goo? Well, if the former is true, then you can skip this article. However, I think many families in the V4M 1Z9 zip code area could use some more veggies for better children’s nutrition in Vancouver.

Here are some ideas for Vancouver parents who want to sneak more veggies into kids’ diets:

Broccoli: cook the broccoli, blend it up, and put some of it into brownie batter. Sounds strange, I know, but even the pickiest eater won’t detect the added children’s vitamins and minerals.
Zucchini and yellow squash: shred it and add it to pasta sauces or casseroles. Theses veggies have a mild flavor, and won’t detract from the taste of the dish.
Spinach and other dark greens: if you have a high-end blender, you may be able to blend these super healthy greens raw. If not, you can boil them for a few minutes until tender, and then plunge them into ice water. Blend with some frozen fruit and yogurt or tofu for a nutrient-rich smoothie.
Cauliflower: dice it, cook it, and add it to white sauces or cheesy sauces over pasta.

There are many ways Vancouver parents and caregivers can add healthy veggies to foods kids already eat. It might take a little more preparation, but BC children are worth it!

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in BC and like to share children’s health and nutrition tips in my blog. If you are looking for low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate products, call me today. I sell Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage and Peanut Butter Cups, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy in Vancouver.

Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Vancouver Kids

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Vancouver Kids

Healthy, growing children need to snack between meals for proper nutrition. Most Delta parents have probably had the experience of forgetting an afternoon snack. What happens? Kids finally notice they’re hungry about an hour before dinner, and boy is it hard to wait!

A great snack ingredient is peanut butter. It is an inexpensive source of protein and calories and gives Delta children the nutrients they need to grow and to stay healthy.

Here are some great healthy snack ideas using peanut butter for Surrey and Richmond kids.

Peanut Butter Banana Pops

Bananas, cut in half width-wise
Popsicle sticks
Peanut butter
Chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other topping

Take the popsicle sticks and push them carefully into the cut bananas. Spread peanut butter over the bananas and roll in nuts or other topping. Freeze. Enjoy.

Peanut Butter Balls

This is the kind of recipe you can’t really mess up, and the portions are approximate.

about 1 cup of peanut butter
a few tablespoons of honey (2-3)
a few tablespoons of instant dry milk

Mix everything together until it forms a large ball. Pinch off small pieces of dough, and roll into ball shapes. Store in the refrigerator, and pull them out at snack time.
