Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Fayetteville Kids

Healthy, growing children need to snack between meals for proper nutrition. Most Rogers 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 Rogers children the nutrients they need to grow and to stay healthy.

Here are some great healthy snack ideas using peanut butter for Springdale and Bentonville 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.

Fayetteville Injuries: Get The Ice, Fast!

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Fayetteville Injuries Get The Ice Fast!

If your Fayetteville kids are active on the field, the court, or in your own backyard, chances are you have dealt with many bumps, bruises, and sprains. Prompt medical care can make all the difference when it comes to how quickly an injury heals.

Despite medical advancements, when it comes to a sprain, strain, break, or bruise, the best way to reduce pain and swelling is the same as when you were a kid: apply ice.

For the best DIY ice bag, fill a zip-top bag with ice cubes or crushed ice and a little water. The liquid will help the bag conform to the body and distribute the cold evenly. You can also use the frozen peas trick, which does essentially the same thing.

Don’t apply the bag to bare skin, however. This could cause frostbite or even a burn. Wrap the pack in a thin towel or article of clothing.

Don’t take the ice off too soon. Removing it after just a few minutes, when the skin is cold to the touch, won’t have a lasting effect. Leave ice on the injury until the area goes numb, but not more than 20 minutes. Repeat this once an hour for up to four hours.

Remember to get the ice on as soon as possible. Preventing and reducing inflammation speeds up the healing process. The sooner you get ice on it, the sooner your Fayetteville child will be back in action.

Where Will Your Lowell Home Business Take You?

Where Will Your Lowell Home Business Take You?

Hello! Welcome to today’s Lowell home based business article. When you start a home based business or online store in Lowell, you never know where it may take you.

Do you think Amazon founder Jeff Bezos ever dreamed his small web-based bookstore would grow into the largest online retailer? Bezos started his enterprise in the garage of his home in Bellevue, Washington.

All types of businesses are started in Lowell homes: manufacturing, accounting, day spas, catering, music/dance instruction, personal training, and a whole bunch of online retailers and service providers.

Even during times of economic stagnation, ambitious Lowell entrepreneurs build lucrative businesses from scratch. All of the top earning Fayetteville businesses started somewhere. In many cases that ‘somewhere’ was a garage, spare room, or a laptop on the kitchen counter.

Dream big with the Activ and now Xe Healthy Energy Drink low start-up business opportunity in Lowell.

Rogers Sun Safety

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Rogers Sun Safety

Many Arkansas families enjoy spending time together outside. Whether it is in the mountains or at the beach, fresh air and sunshine make family time a fun time. Rogers parents should make sure that their children are adequately protected from UV rays when enjoying outside time. Young skin can burn easily and one severe sunburn in childhood increases the chance of developing melanoma later in life two-fold. Arkansas babies should not even be exposed to the sun. Cover them with clothing and keep them in the shade. When your Rogers child is six months old, limited exposure to UV rays is okay, but use a healthy dose of sunscreen and common sense. The sunscreen sold at your Rogers supermarket or drugstore should be applied thirty minutes before your kids go outside.

If you are enjoying time at the pool or beach make sure to regularly reapply often.  When my kids swim at the Fayetteville pool they take many breaks in the shade to reapply sunscreen and hydrate. My name is Patsy Hardin and I am a Rogers-based Activ and now Xe Healthy Energy Drink representative and an advocate for Arkansas children’s health. There are many things to worry about as a parent., but I never have to worry about the healthy snacks I give my kids. If you are interested in Bentonville children’s health and healthy snacking contact me today!

Safest Cars For Springdale Families

Safest Cars For Springdale Families

Hello Springdale parents! Welcome to my Fayetteville children’s health blog. I am an advocate for improved health and safety for Springdale kids. I also sell an exceptional nutritional product called Activ and now Xe Healthy Energy Drink. If you would like to learn more about one of the best snacks for kids, call me today at 479 616 1933.

I like lists, they are short and to-the-point. Every once in a while I run across a ‘Top Five’ or ‘Top Ten’ article such as: ‘The Ten Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Springdale,’ ‘The Top Five Nutritional Kids Foods,’ or ‘The Five Best Family Attractions in the Fayetteville Area.’

I recently read an article on Forbes.com that lists the safest cars of the year1. Here are three that caught my eye with my comments thrown in:

1) The Tesla Model S four-door electric sedan. (I’ve never heard of this car but the makers claim it will go ‘300 zero-emission miles on one charge.’1 That’s a lot of trips to your closest Springdale grocery store with no adverse environmental impact!)
2) BMW Five Series. (This isn’t your ordinary Springdale kid hauler but it sure is pretty.)
3) Chevrolet Cruze. (This small sedan has the most budget-friendly MSRP of $16,275.)

As Fayetteville parents, our children’s’ health and safety should be our top priority. When it comes time to buy a new family car in Springdale, remember to check the safety ratings.

Helping Fayetteville Kids Cope With Seasonal Allergies

Helping Fayetteville Kids Cope With Seasonal Allergies

Hello Fayetteville! Welcome to today’s children’s health and nutrition blog. Today, we are discussing seasonal allergies. Many Fayetteville parents wonder if their child’s sneezing and runny nose are temporary symptoms of a cold or seasonal allergies. Generally, colds also come with aches and a low fever and last only a week, while allergies can persist for an entire season. Fayetteville doctors are seeing new cases of seasonal allergies among people of all ages, especially adults. Is this an unintended result of more aggressive germ-fighting in childhood?

‘Researchers speculate that thanks to antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizers and other powerful germ-killing products, kids today are less likely to be exposed to the bacteria and viruses that help the immune system shift into gear and prevent them from developing allergies and asthma as they grow up.’1

Regardless of the possibility that allergies may persist into adulthood, there are several steps Fayetteville parents can take to help their child get through the allergy prone months with minimal discomfort:

Replace your filters (AC and furnace) at least every two or three months, and look for MERV ratings of 11 or 12 for maximum efficiency filters. Though it may be difficult during the hot Fayetteville months, remember to keep your windows closed at home and in the car. Check pollen levels online and try to have your child wait until evening to go outdoors when pollen counts are lower.

Have your child shower before going to bed to wash allergen out of his or her hair and skin so it won’t transfer to bedding and increase irritation during the night. You can also use plastic or allergen-proof covers for your child’s mattress, box springs, and pillows for extra protection.

Your Fayetteville doctor can test your child to determine the specific allergens and prescribe safe and effective medications.

Healthy Rogers Pantries For Healthy Rogers Kids

Healthy Rogers Pantries For Healthy Rogers Kids

Parents in the Lowell, Springdale, and Bentonville 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 Fayetteville 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 Lowell, Springdale, and Bentonville 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!) Rogers kids.

How to Choose a Fayetteville Pediatrician

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

How to Choose a Fayetteville Pediatrician

Keeping children healthy is among the highest priorities for Rogers, Arkansas parents.

There are hundreds of qualified pediatricians to help with your health goals in the Lowell, Springdale, and Bentonville area, but how do you choose one?

Since these medical professionals are the people you will rely on to give your child immunizations and advise you on proper nutrition for your family, you’ll want someone you’re comfortable with.

One of the best things you can do is to ask other Fayetteville parents which pediatricians they recommend. As soon as you have a few names, you can begin calling the offices and perusing the websites for each practice.

Here are a few questions to keep in mind when talking to the receptionist or nurse on the phone:

Where did the doctor go to medical school?
Is the staff friendly?
Are the office hours convenient for your schedule?
Does the doctor belong to a group practice where they can cover for each other during vacations, etc.?
What hospital does the doctor or practice use?

When you have narrowed down your list to a pediatrician that fits these criteria, you can visit the office and ask the staff or pediatrician any additional questions you may have. This is one of the best ways to understand children’s healthcare in Springdale.

I’m Patsy Hardin and children’s health is very important to me. I am the owner of a great Rogers home business that sells a nutritional chocolate product. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://www.mxi.myvoffice.com/patz/ or give me a call at 479 616 1933.
