Join Southeast Green as we continue our month long series on GMOs and education. We will be interviewing Melinda Hicks, creator and momtrepreneur of Little Me Tea.
It all started with a search for a truly healthy kids’ drink for our baby girl, Julia. The 100% juices were loaded with sugar. Flavored waters lacked nutrition. Even so-called “healthy” organic brands added cane sugar. No thanks!
So Melinda and Michael Hicks set out to create a better drink for children based on something as pure and wholesome as nature itself — tea. Some call it nature’s wonder drug, and it’s no wonder. From this little green leaf comes a powerhouse of beneficial nutrients like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Little Me Tea is a delicious blend of caffeine-free tea kicked up with fruit and vegetable juices. It’s rich in nutrients, super-low in sugar, Non-GMO and organic to the core. In today’s polluted, nutrient-deficient world, our children need a true force of nature to keep them healthy and strong. That’s why we created Little Me Tea — the healthiest kids’ drink on the planet.
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.
So what can be done? Listen in and find out...

Liam Cawley of Ireland asks;
It is sad to hear of the passing of Bobbi Christina Brown yesterday. Was her death due to bad parenting or can we hold parents responsible for their children? Is that too much of a burden to lay at anyone's feet? That anyone can be responsible for another soul? I know my own relationship with my parents is good but it wasn't always so and I blamed my mom particularity as a teen for a lot. Looking back now I could have being more considerate of her and her attempts to do her best with a child(me) at times that was so hard to deal with. Also as children and parents alike what can we each do to make life more fulfilled/loving etc for all involved because I can only imagine being a parent has its challenges but perhaps being a child has too as was the case with Bobbi. Kindest regards Nadia.
Recently in the news, God fearing church members welcomed in a young man who would later deliberately kill them. We hear of children arming themselves with weapons, they shouldn't be able to obtain, in order to senselessly murder classmates, friends,family, and in some cases, themselves. We all want to know why; the reasons are never going to be enough. Our program is a movie based broadcast, so we'll be discussing a few films, that touch on similar random acts of violence, that continue to plague our society and weaken our humanity: 4 Little Girls, Elephant and if time permits, Heathers. The sad thing is...these films are all over ten years old. Please join film critics Larry Domkowski (Must See Movies), Karen D. (The Movie Maven) and me Greg Morgan (Reel Movie Guy) for this, our next episode of "A Reel Point Of View".
This is a difficult topic for some. Many don't focus on the step children or have a desire to discuss it. We will share and discuss on how to manage and maintain an effective home with children and Step parents within the home. Pastor Diane Winbush will bring this lecture on today.

According to Director James Comey, “The FBI remains vigilant in its efforts to eradicate predators from our communities and to keep our children safe.” In addition to working with our law enforcement partners to publicize the names and faces of missing children, the Bureau undertakes a variety of efforts to help rescue the most vulnerable of victims
On May 25, 1979, 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared while walking to his school bus stop in New York. Four years later, to honor Etan’s memory and the memories of other missing children, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25—the anniversary of Etan’s disappearance—as National Missing Children’s Day.
Tragically, however, children continue to disappear, and as we approach National Missing Children’s Day 2015, the FBI would like to ask the public for its continued help in locating any of the young victims pictured above from our Kidnapping and Missing Persons webpage.
We MUST step up to support, provide, protect, advocate and even battle on behalf of our children. Our children are OUR FUTURE, they are the leaders that we will follow tomorrow. Afican cultures throughout the continent and the planet see the family and OUR children's lives are our priority. We will be discussing real things that we can do to protect our children with practical and spiritual applications. We will have special guest Queen Taese, Homeschool Parent/Educator and Executive Committee Director for The Liberated Minds Expo as our guest speaker. She is a passionate educator who will share tips for keeping our youth alert, aware and conscious of safety and security in this time. As we aim to keep our subject matter relevant and current, we encourage you to join in chatroom discussions and call in with your questions.
