Prevent Sports Mouth Injuries For Fairport Kids

Prevent Sports Mouth Injuries For Fairport Kids

Active Fairport children are involved in a variety of different sports these days, and while this is great news for kid’s health, parents need to be aware of the risk of mouth injuries.

All Fairport children participating in contact sports can reduce the risk of mouth and tooth injuries by wearing a mouthguard. Properly fitted mouth protectors can prevent broken or lost teeth as well as lip, tongue, and jaw injuries.

Kids mouth protectors come in a variety of styles. ‘One size fits all,’ boil and bite, and custom. Not surprisingly, custom-fitted mouth protectors are the safest and can be made by your Rochester dentist to make sure your child has a perfect fit.

Mouth protectors are extremely important for Rochester children undergoing orthodontic treatment. Metal braces can cause serious oral injuries in instances of impact. (It can also cost Rochester parents a bundle to replace broken braces.)

3 Critical Toy Safety Rules For Fairport Parents

Rochester childrens vitamins

Between holidays and birthdays, there are plenty of opportunities for gift giving in the Rochester area, so parents are often on the lookout for toys to give at the next big event. Toys can promote children’s health by stimulating the mind, encouraging imagination, or by getting kids moving around and exercising. But whatever toy you choose, make sure it is safe.

Next time you are browsing the toy aisle of your favorite Pittsford, Penfield, or Canandaigua department store, here are a few safety tips to keep in mind.

1. Be sure that you purchase toys that suit the child’s age and abilities. Buying a toy that is meant for older children is a possible safety hazard and should always be avoided.

2. Once you’ve chosen an age-appropriate toy, read all of the enclosed instructions before allowing your kids to play with it.

3. This can be difficult when you have children of differing ages, but you should always make sure that older kids play with toys containing small parts away from younger children, and never allow them to leave the game pieces unattended.

And, speaking of gifts, remember that ribbons and strings should be taken away immediately after a gift or toy is unwrapped.

My name is Katrina Gaspar and I am passionate about kids health in Pittsford. I want to help parents in and around Rochester to raise healthy children and I do this by discussing important issues in my Children’s Health Blog, such as proper nutrition, immunization schedules, and safety.

I own a home based business here in Fairport that sells Power Squares. If you would like to learn more, call me at 585-469-1310 or visit me on the web at http://myantioxidantdiet.com.

Is Juicing Better For Rochester Kids?

Is Juicing Better For Rochester Kids?

Rochester health trends come and go and I have recently noticed that the practice of juicing fruits and vegetables has made its way back into the New York children’s nutrition spotlight.

In my experience, I have found that the only Rochester parents who have been successful at making their own super-healthy juices over the long term are Rochester vegetarians who dedicate a lot of daily time to preparing their food.

Most Rochester people who buy an expensive juicer use it for a few weeks before it is relegated to the back shelf of the pantry. Though juicing provides a way to improve your children’s nutrition, it can be time-consuming and expensive. After buying fresh fruits and vegetables, it can cost several dollars to make one glass. Of course, if you have ever tasted fruit and vegetable juices made fresh, you know how delicious they are. For many Rochester parents, this is worth every minute and every dollar spent.

Does juicing provide more nutrition than eating whole fruits and vegetables?

I haven’t come across any convincing evidence of this but I do see the value for Rochester parents whose kids enjoy drinking juice more than eating whole fruits and vegetable. Mixing vegetables with sweet fruits in a juice can disguise their taste and make them more palatable than the same vegetables raw or cooked.

Rochester parents who would like to start juicing should keep in mind the fact that juicing usually removes all the fiber from the fruits and veggies used. A glass of fresh juice also contains a lot of calories!

Critical Bike Safety Rules For Pittsford Parents

Pittsford Kids Vitamins

Parents in the Rochester, Penfield, and Canandaigua area who want to encourage their children to be active and healthy have probably considered bike riding. This is a great option for kids, so today in the Fairport Kid’s Health Blog we want to point out some basic principles of bicycle safety.

Don’t compromise on the helmet, parents!
No matter how short the excursion is, insist that your child wear a helmet each time they ride their bike. Helmets can be purchased at any bike store and at most big box stores in the 14450 area. And remember the power of example when it comes to children’s health (this means you need to wear your helmets too, mom and dad!).

Patience is important as your child develops biking skills. Don’t take off the training wheels until the child is ready and hold off on hand brakes until your child is an experienced rider. Remember that kids grow fast. Last year’s bike may now be too small.

Oversized bikes pose a safety risk. Take your child with you to your Rochester or Penfield store when you purchase a bike so that you can make sure it is the proper size.

Active kids are healthy kids, and I want to do all I can to promote kids health in Pittsford. My name is Katrina Gaspar and I work from my Fairport home business selling Power Squares. If you would like to learn more, please give me a call at 585-469-1310 or visit me on the web at http://myantioxidantdiet.com.

Food Allergies In Penfield Children

Food Allergies In Penfield Children The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that around eight percent of U.S. kids are affected by food allergies.

Eight foods account for most children’s food allergies in Rochester: eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, nuts, and wheat. Strawberries and tomatoes can also cause food allergies in young Penfield kids, though generally not in adults.

Type and severity of allergy symptoms in Rochester kids vary, but may show up as itchy eyes, nose or throat, trouble breathing, gastrointestinal upset, or hives.

If you suspect your child may have a food allergy, keep a food journal of everything he or she eats (including beverages) for a week to show your Pittsford pediatrician. To confirm the diagnosis, your doctor may scratch the skin with a small amount of an allergen to observe the reaction.

Rochester or to inquire about the nutritional superstar Power Squares, contact my office today.

Music is Magic for Fairport Kids

Pittsford immunization schedule

Parents in and around Fairport know that healthy kids need proper nutrition, lots of exercise, and well-rounded lives. It’s also safe to say that for all children, a well-rounded life should include music in one form or another.

Studies have shown that music does so much more than simply entertain!

Did you know that children who are involved in some kind of musical training during school perform better in math and science? They also develop better coordination, do better in reading, concentrating, and goal setting. Studies show that students who are involved in a music education program also perform better on their SATs, and are more likely to attend college.

While it’s ideal for Canandaigua, Penfield, and Pittsford parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Rochester area will have great advice on age-appropriate music lessons and teachers for your curious child.

But lessons aren’t the only way! Keep an eye out in the Fairport community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with Canandaigua, Penfield, and Pittsford libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

Keep up the good work, Fairport parents! Your children are lucky to have you to help them stay safe, healthy, and happy!

3 Tips For Improving Fairport Kids’ Attention Spans

Pittsford immunization schedule

Hello New York parents! Today in the Fairport Children’s Health Blog, we are going to look at various ways to lengthen kids’ attention spans. An increased attention span can improve learning ability as well as behavior and is an important aspect of kids health in Pittsford.

1. Find an activity that will hold their attention. This might mean that you need to experiment with different types of toys and crafts. One child might enjoy building blocks while another may become engrossed in an art project. There are many craft and hobby stores in the Canandaigua, Penfield, and Pittsford area where parents can get great ideas.

2. Recorded stories are a wonderful resource for increasing attention spans. Have your child lie on the floor and close their eyes, then play a recorded story. When it’s finished, have your child retell the story to you. Local Rochester libraries are perfect for finding recorded books and stories. Or you can download audio books for your iPad or other electronic reader.

3. Make sure that your child is using age-appropriate toys, crafts, and media. Age recommendations can be very helpful when deciding what activities will effectively engage your child.

Remember that it’s natural for different children to have varying attention spans, but the attention span of all kids should improve with age.

Old-School Snacks For Rochester Kids

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Pittsford Kids

What does it take to make a healthy snack? The aisles at every Pittsford, Penfield, and Canandaigua grocery store are lined with packages that claim to be healthy and to contain the newest, most exciting vitamin or mineral. But is that really what makes a snack healthy?

Chances are that the answer is no. A lot of the foods that make healthy snacks are not the ones that you find packaged in the middle of the supermarket. Rather, they are what we would consider plain old food.

Plain old food has the advantage of being unprocessed and free of chemicals and preservatives. So, let’s take a look at these seemingly boring snack ingredients.

Cheese is a real protein powerhouse for your kids, so a little goes a long way. For a fun twist, try using cookie cutters to make shapes that your kids will love to gobble up!

Peanut butter and childhood go together like, well, peanut butter and jelly. Ants on a log, peanut butter spread on celery with raisins is always a fun treat. If your child has peanut allergies, you can always substitute almond butter in most recipes.

Low-fat yogurt is probably a favorite of your child’s already, but this versatile source of calcium has plenty of tricks up its sleeves. Try adding berries, or something crunchy like granola or whole-grain cereal. And, in the hot summer months, a yogurt pop can really hit the spot.

The humble egg isn’t just for breakfast anymore. Hard-boiled eggs kept in the fridge might be one of the most convenient ways to enjoy this high-protein snack.

As you can see, the secret to children’s nutrition might just be that there is no secret at all. Find real food, make it into a snack, and ignore the claims made by processed, pre-packaged food.

Hi. My name is Katrina Gaspar and I am passionate about kids health in Pittsford. I want to help parents in and around Rochester to raise healthy, happy children. One way I do this by discussing important issues in my Children’s Health Blog, such as childhood obesity in Canandaigua, immunization schedules, and safety.

Keeping Penfield Kids Regular

Nutrition for Rochester children

It might be an awkward subject for Fairport parents to bring up with an older child, but making sure your son or daughter is having regular bowel movements is essential for their health – at all ages. If your child is experiencing problems with this, try these natural fixes before you resort to a medication.

Increased water intake is often all it takes for Rochester area kids to overcome this problem since dehydration is a common cause.

To encourage your child to drink more water, try getting them their own water bottle and keeping it full in the fridge. That way, even if your child is too small to reach the tap themselves, they always have easy access to cold water.

It’s important to evaluate the diet of your child and look for opportunities to introduce more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods contain the fiber that is necessary for bowel health. Plus, you’ll see lots of additional health benefits from these steps toward proper nutrition.

If natural remedies don’t alleviate the problem, consult with your Pittsford, Penfield, or Canandaigua pediatrician.

My name is Katrina Gaspar and I want to help Fairport families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Canandaigua concern me. I also own a fantastic Rochester area home business that sells Power Squares and X-Protein Meal Shake.

Please contact me today at 585-469-1310 if you would like to know more about Power Squares. I hope to talk to you soon!

4 Things Your Fairport Pediatrician Wants You To Know

Pittsford Kids Vitamins

The health of their children is a top priority for parents in the Pittsford, Penfield, and Canandaigua areas, and that’s why having a good relationship with your child’s pediatrician is important. From well-child check-ups to children’s immunizations to flu shots, these healthcare providers are there when parents need them.

Today in the Fairport Children’s Health Blog, we want to give you a look into some of the issues facing pediatricians, especially those issues that they may have difficulty discussing with parents.

1. A cold is a cold is a cold, even if they call it something different. There are lots of names for the common cold, like “viral rhinosinusitis” or “purulent rhinitis”. They might sound fancy, but if your kids has it, it really just means they have a cold. Many pediatricians use these terms so parents don’t feel like their being sent away from the office with an overly-simple diagnosis.

2. Old wives’ tales and internet health sites are no substitutes for professional medical advice! There are many rumors that have no scientific basis, but some patients insist on bringing their child in because an older member of the family noticed something (think green snot or ear tugging). Also, while the internet is filled with great information, it is also teeming with sensationalized and nonscientific sites that can be downright dangerous. Pediatricians just want parents to be safe and well-informed when choosing how to treat their child.

3. Fevers are scary, but for children over 3 months old, there is no magic number where a fever becomes dangerous. However, accompanying symptoms like lethargy, rash, or inconsolable crying are cause for concern.

4. Scheduling is not an exact science.
No one likes to camp out in the waiting room, but, once in a while, a patient requires a little extra care, and this can throw the schedule off for the day. However, one day that patient may be your child, and you’ll want that schedule-ruining extra care as well.
