Raising Healthy Kids in An Increasingly Unhealthy World With Moms : Angie Thomas Harper Guerra And Master Coordinator Barb Lagoni
Declining Health of American Children from Maternal and Child Health : A Business Imperative Past generations of children suffered from acute diseases like polio, most of which are now prevented by vaccines. In contrast, todays children face chronic diseases that develop slowly throughout childhood and impair adulthood. The onset of chronic conditions is beginning earlier and earlier, to the point where conditions once only seen in adults are now being diagnosed in children. PreMature Births –In 2004, 12.5% of births in the U S – 500,000 Infants total – were preterm… a 30 % increase since Low Birth Weight -- Many premature babies weigh too little at birth, which adds to the childs potential medical problems. Low birth weight is one of the leading causes of neonatal mortality. The percentage of newborns with low birth weights has increased in the past two decades – from 7% in1990 to 8.3% in 2006…putting them at risk for respiratory distress syndrome, bleeding in the brain, and other serious and complications barb
Declining Health of Kids continued Asthma The most common chronic disease in children is asthma, a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Asthma has been on the rise since the 1990s. Affects 1 in 10 children. and about a quarter of all children with asthma are younger than 5. Obesity America is slowly losing the fight against obesity. U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, MD, called obesity the greatest threat to public health today. The rate of overweight among children has increased from 6% in the period 1976–1980 to 30% today.. Sustained obesity puts adolescents and young adults at high risk for several chronic diseases, including hypertension, type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Diabetes – affects 26% of people under 20 … thats 1 in every 400, increasing risk for heart disease & stroke, hypertension, kidney disease, blindness, neuropathy and amputationbarb
More Health Statistics for US Kids Allergies – 10% of US children Learning Disabilities – 8% of US kids ( 5 million ) On Prescription medications ( at least 3 months ) – 10 million kids Mental Health – Depression, Behavioral /Emotional Issues In 2011, a little more than 5 percent of children ages 4–17 were reported by a parent to have serious difficulties with emotions, concentration, behavior, or being able to get along with other people. In 2011, about 8 percent of the population ages 12–17 had a Major Depressive Episode (MDE) during the past year Only 55% report excellent health Center for Disease Control barb
Healing the New Childhood Epidemics Autism, Asthma, ADHD and Allergies by Kenneth Bock & Cameron Stauth Causes – Toxins proliferated air ( saturated with mercury from coal-burning factories & IQ-damaging lead ) water (polluted with hydrocarbons, pathogens, waste and medications ) food ( fouled by chemicals, hormones, antibiotics ) Nutrition deteriorated – average intake of essential has steadily declined since replaced by unhealthy fast food and processed food Ability to detoxify dwindled -- barb
Why Toxins Are So Dangerous For Babies Dr. Anne-Lise Birch Monsen at the University of Bergen, Norway, has raised serious concerns about high levels of contaminants in farm-raised salmon. The contaminants in question originate in wild salmon, courtesy of environmental pollution. These toxic contaminants bind to the fat molecules in wild fish, and when these fish are ground up for use in fish meal together with added high- fat fish oils, these molecules can enter your body where they bind to your cells. While this can certainly cause health problems for you, it can also pose a very serious threat to the health of your unborn children. As explained by Morton, when you give birth, your body dumps up to 90 percent of the accumulated toxins in your body into the body of your first-born child. More toxins are later expelled through your breast milk. This is why its so critical to avoid toxic exposures throughout childhood and early adulthood, to prevent damage to future generations as well as your own life cycle... barb

Elizas Diet Protein from eggs, nuts/nut butters, protein shakes; Veggies..

Limited dairy and refined carbohydrates. No juice. Desserts are a treat and not an every day thing. She has very little processed food. She consumes no artificial sweeteners, flavors or dyes. angie
Angie Thomas Favorite Smoothee Recipes - 8 oz almond milk - 1/2 frozen banana - large handful of spinach - 1/2 c - 1 c of frozen peaches - 2 scoops of 180 Vanilla or Chocolate Shaklee 180 mix Whirr up in the blender until smooth! Spinach has no taste when blended and if you blend well, there is no texture. Add blackberries and you will have a pink smoothee - in case the green color is a turn off. Another good, kid friendly recipe - 8 oz almond milk - 1 frozen banana - 1 large handful spinach - 1 heaping spoonful of peanut butter (organic, natural, no added sugar!) -2 scoops of the 180 Chocolate Shaklee 180 mix Both recipes can yield 2 servings for kiddos (1 for mama )angie
What Ive Learned About Why To Feed My Kids Healthy Foods Harper Guerra Ive learned to make the association of how what my children eat affects their health. Ive learned that the foods they eat also can affect their behavior
What Ive Learned about HOW to Feed My Kids Healthy Start Early and Early Replace with alternatives Protein and Veggies first and in everything Harpers blog waronaverage.com Muffins
Harpers Healthy Recipes Morning Glory Muffins: 2 1/2 cups almond flour 1 tablespoon cinnamon 2 teaspoons baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cups carrots, peeled and grated 1 large apple, peeled, cored and grated 1 cup shredded coconut 1 cup raisins 3 large eggs 2 tablespoons honey 1/2 cup coconut oil 1 teaspoon vanilla Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease standard-muffin pan or line with papers Combine almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add carrot, apple, coconut and raisins and combine well. In a separate bowl, whisk. eggs, honey, oil and vanilla extract together. Pour wet mixture over dry ingredients and mix very well. The batter will be thick. Spoon batter into muffin pan and place on upper/middle rack of oven for minutes. When a toothpick inserted into the top of a muffin comes out clean, the muffins are done. Cool in pan 8-10 minutes, then remove to a rack to finish cooling.
Sunflower Muffins 1 cup any nut butter (I use sunflower butter) 2-3 ripe banana 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla ½ teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until well mixed: batter will be sticky. Pour batter into a greased mini muffin tins. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 minutes or so until cooked through I am sure you could use regular muffins too, but you will have to increase the cooking time to minutes.
