Nutrition Articles

Helpful Tips:

  • Never use a kitchen spoon to measure medication since all measure differently. Use a measuring cup specifically for medication to make sure you get the proper dose.
  • Remind your children to wash their hands frequently, for as long as it takes them to sing Happy Birthday two times, since the classroom, playground and library can all hold silent germs that make us all sick.
  • Drowning is known as the silent killer. Never leave your child unattended near water.
  • Catch your child doing something right, and praise them for it. A little positive attention goes a long way.
