    Curtis Harwell Discusses Childhood Obesity and Stopping it.

    in Fitness

    Tip #1 -
    Allow your child to play with her food. 


    Yes, you heard me right.  Trying something new can be a challenge to small children.  Allow them to use all their senses to explore new and sometimes strange fruits and vegetables.  Let him hold the kiwi and treat it as a ball before you cut it and let him eat the green inside.  Let her pretend to color with the celery stick before she tries it.


    Tip #2 -  
    Encourage your child to be creative with their food. 


    Make fruit salad into a smiley face.  Use two grape halves as the eyes, a strawberry half as the nose and an orange slice as the mouth.  Try ants on a log.  If the child is over two, place peanut butter on a banana that has been sliced lengthwise.  Sprinkle raisins over the sticky peanut butter to represent the ants.  You can also replace the banana with a celery stick.


    Tip #3 -
    Read stories to your children about food. 


    This age group loves to spend time listening to their parents read to them.  Take advantage of this.  Not only will this help their cognitive abilities but can also help them to try healthy foods.



    Trying to introduce a protein rich egg, read Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.
    Oliver's Vegetables, Rabbit Food or any Veggie Tales book is great while introducing new vegetables.
    Alligator Arrived with Apples or Oliver's Fruit Salad helps to get new fruit down.  You may even want to play the game Hi, Ho Cherrio, too.
    Wanting your little one to like whole grains, try If You Give A Pig A Pancake, If You Give A Moose A Muffin or The Little Red Hen.

    Curtis Harwell & Richard Neal Discuss Childhood Obesity and Prevention

    in Fitness

    Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. It occurs when a child is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height.


    Childhood obesity is particularly troubling because the extra pounds often start children on the path to health problems that were once confined to adults, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Childhood obesity can also lead to poor self-esteem and depression.


    One of the best strategies to reduce childhood obesity is to improve the diet and exercise habits of your entire family. Treating and preventing childhood obesity helps protect the health of your child now and in the future.


    Symptoms


    Not all children carrying extra pounds are overweight or obese. Some children have larger than average body frames. And children normally carry different amounts of body fat at the various stages of development. So you might not know just by looking at your child if his or her weight is a health concern.


    Your child's doctor can help you figure out if your child's weight could pose health problems using growth charts and, if necessary, other tests.


    When to see a doctor


    If you're worried that your child is putting on too much weight, talk to his or her doctor. Your child's doctor will consider your child's individual history of growth and development, your family's weight-for-height history, and where your child lands on the growth charts. This can help determine if your child's weight is in an unhealthy range.

    Obesity - An Epidemic Affecting Children and Adults

    in Health

    Quoting the American Psychological Association; Excess weight and obesity in childhood and adolescence has become a serious public health concern in the United States. The “obesity epidemic” has particularly exploded in the last 25 years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of obesity has more than doubled among children ages two to five (5 percent to 12.4 percent) and ages six to 11 (6.5 percent to 17 percent). In teens ages 12 to 19, prevalence rates have tripled (5 percent to 17.6 percent). 


    This has significant implications for the life expectancy of obese youth who are likely to experience higher rates of hypertension, elevated cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes than their parents. This may be the first generation to have a shorter life expectancy than the one immediately before them. There is some encouraging news that growth in childhood obesity prevalence has slowed in recent years, however serious efforts are still required to fully reverse the trend.


    From a study in West Virginia - According to the National Institutes of Health, obesity and overweight together are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, close behind tobacco use. An estimated 300,000 deaths per year are due to the obesity epidemic.

    Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

    in Family


    An individual who was sexually abused as a child is an adult survivor of child sexual abuse. This abuse may have had long-term effects on the survivor’s life. In most instances, the victim of the abuse never discussed the abuse with others while it was occurring. This individual is learning now, as an adult, to deal with the effects of the abuse. 


    Possible Long-Term Effects:



    Each individual’s experiences and reactions are unique to that individual. However, with so many survivors breaking the silence and talking about their experiences, it has become apparent that there are some responses to child sexual abuse that are common to many survivors.
    Feelings of extremely low self-esteem or self-hatred are common in survivors. Extreme depression is something with which survivors also battle.
    Survivors often experience frequent sleep disturbances and nightmares. Links have been made between this and the fact that children are often sexually abused in their rooms, in their own beds.
    Trust is a crucial issue for many survivors throughout their lives. They were betrayed by the very people who cared for them, who insisted they loved them even while abusing them.
    Re-victimization describes the process whereby women who were sexually abused as children frequently find themselves in abusive, dangerous situations, or relationships as adults.
    Survivors with disabilities who experienced sexual abuse in childhood might never have reached a level of independence to escape this abuse and it has become a way of life.
