Healthy school lunches
Healthy lunches and snacks are an important aspect for children that improves their concentration and learning. Switching to healthy eating isn't always an easy task, but there are simple ways to make your child's school lunch healthier.

Encourage your children to make healthy food choices for healthy eating

School-age children learn quickly and are influenced by their friends and the most popular trends. This is an important time to talk with them and instill healthy eating habits.

The following tips will help you encourage your children to make healthy food choices:

    Talk to your children about what they'd like to include in their snack. Suggest healthy foods and drinks and decide the content of the snack together.
    Write a shopping list together. Take your children to the grocery store and let them choose foods and drinks that you have included in the list.
    Try to get them to help prepare their snacks. Older children can prepare most of…

Superfoods You Should Eat Every Day

Image
Is it true that there are superfoods? Those that fight cancer or that increase fat loss? What are they? How to consume them? Here are some answers.

Dince the classic scene of Popeye the Seafarer eating a can of spinach in one bite and becoming a strong and almost invincible man, miraculous properties were already being attributed to certain foods. The problem is that today, with so much misinformation swarming around about what to eat, it only lends itself to confu- sions and misinterpretations. Do spinach really give strength? Do blueberries help protect against cancer? Does ginger promote fat loss? Does chia have more protein than animal meat? Hand in hand with specialists, at Bienestar Colsanitas we decided to solve these and other doubts. Take note.

Foods with super powers: truth or lie? "There is no superfood that is magically superior or that has a more beneficial effect than another," explains Dr. Astrid Meneses, a nutritionist-dietitian attached to Colsanitas. Each …

How to Encourage Babies to Walk

Image
When we have a baby, the consultation gives us normal patterns of psychomotor development. More or less, babies manage to do certain things with the same months of age. But it is only indicative. If a baby does something a little earlier or a little later than expected, it is normal. They are children, not programmed machines. Just in case they do not follow a normal development, that we see warning signs that worry us, we should consult the pediatrician.

All healthy babies achieve normal developmental milestones for their age. Some before and some after. If we leave them, under normal conditions everyone does. But in this society in which we live, it seems that the baby is better than before. The one who sits first, the one who walks first, the one who controls the pee first. And we force them to do things that they are going to achieve by themselves anyway.

And as on the subject of motherhood, everybody thinks, everybody knows....because they tell us how to do things.

A real example of organic farming

Image
With the harvest, I talked to some organic farmers about the yield and quality of their crops, as well as the price they are paid. As it happens, some of the beef producers also had something to say.
We were happy with our harvest. The rice were clean and, although they were harvested with 21% moisture, our dryer took them to 18%, at which point they were weighed when they went in the Arctic to Flahavans. It ran at 2.1 tons per acre, while we generally consider 2 to be approximately the average. Most of the loads weighed 58 bushel with a load of 58.5, so we were very happy with that.
He has been growing organically since the 1970s, also produces oilseed rape:
"Oilseed rape gave an average green yield of one tonne per acre, which is on par, but was dirtier than normal due to the cold snap in May, when the rape was stopped for a critical period of time. In addition, the combination was later than normal, for the same reason, resulting in a high humidity level.
Having cleaned and dried,…

Lunch in Japan's schools - The best in the world?

Image
In most public elementary schools in Japan, there is a lunch service Monday through Friday called Kyûshoku (給食)


Today I want to show you how lunches are in Japanese public elementary schools. The children not only eat rice but also bread, as you can see in the pictures.

The children in each class take turns handing out the food with an apron and hat that they take home on weekends to wash and bring home clean on Monday, and hand it to the next group that will hand out the food that week.

One of the things I find interesting, is the invitation to parents to eat lunch with children called Kyûshoku shishokukai shishokukai (給食試食会). I find it interesting and a good habit because parents can eat with their children and see what they eat and what they don't eat, talk to them and also see how a healthy and balanced lunch is.

School lunch in Japan, common costumes And as I always say, I don't know every public elementary school in my country, so I can't say that every school in Ja…

Care for newborn babies

Image
New parents get different and sometimes even contradictory advice. About feeding, about baby sleep habits and about all the other factors in their care. The following are some very simple tips for your baby to have the healthiest nutrition possible.
Food & Beverage 1. If you are going to choose to breastfeed, consider taking the time you are going to breastfeed, 10 minutes at each breast per feeding time is appropriate to start, so more of that time you would be damaging your breasts and run the risk of cracking or bleeding in the nipples. If you have already damaged your nipples due to the pH or acidity of your baby's saliva, choose to use HPA lanolin or Kamillosan cream, so that you will be able to heal them and will not cause harm to the baby at the time of having contact with these cicatrizers.
2. Feed your baby in each feeding with the breast in which you finished the previous feeding, meaning that if you started with the right and finished with the left then the next int…

Organic sleeping

Image
Human beings sleep an average of 23 years throughout our lives. Hence the importance of the bed, the quality of the mattress, and the type of pillow we use to sleep. Any hard or very soft surface is not worth it, as our joints or our spine may suffer from the unfortunate choice, and eventually take its toll. Wooden bedsA more respectful alternative with our body and with the environment, are the natural and ecological beds to sleep better. Wood is the most welcoming and healthy material, especially if you choose it with certification, coming from sustainable forests. Special attention must be paid to the varnishes or paints that have been applied to it. They must always be ecological, odorless and free of toxic products. And of course to discard conglomerates, which often contain adhesives and other irritants. For more sensitive people, there is the possibility of acquiring metal-free wooden beds, that is, they do not go with metal hardware. If you want to make a good purchase decisio…
