Mike Johnson, RPh Healthy Talk How To Get Kids to Eat Lunches That Are Good For Them… No matter what your definition of healthy food is, or which diet philosophy you follow, everyone has to agree that “healthy” food would be closest to it’s natural form, low in sugar and free of harmful chemicals. So, how do you get kiddos to switch over from the typical highly processed school lunch items and choose healthier options? Here are some tips on shopping for healthier than average school lunches. #1: Choose lunchmeat that is hormone and nitrate free. Why? Because some studies have shown nitrates can increase the risk of cancer. (www.cancer.org) And added hormones can mess with the balance of our delicate endocrine system. Even if you can’t spring for the organic meats, there are affordable minimally processed options that are free of nitrates, preservatives and hormones. Time-tested tips that will make it easy to sleep. • After 1:00 pm you should avoid drinking caffeinated products, taking over the counter medications, and eating chocolate candy and deserts. • Stay way from afternoon naps • Take along hot bath around your bedtime • Read a book or do a repetitive activity that will relax you • Develop a regular bedtime routine Count sheep! Yes a repetitive routine will make it easier for you to fall asleep From the Mouth of Babes Student A: I can spell my mom’s name. Teacher: Oh yeah, how do you spell it? Student A: M-O-M Student B: That’s how you spell my mom’s name too! by Jen Lewis www.buzzfeed.com #2: Choose natural yogurt that is free of dyes and low in sugar. There are plenty of unhealthy yogurts on the market masquerading as something healthy. But with so many natural and delicious options, you don’t have to resort to buying junky yogurt. You can find low sugar varieties sweetened with fruit and honey. You can also find an array of dairy free yogurt made from almond milk or coconut milk. And to keep it hormone free, go for organic or at least a product that labels itself free of hormones. #3: Sneak in a whole grain and a piece of fruit. There are tons of really great breads available today that would fall into the “healthy” category while still tasting delish. Look for minimally processed, sprouted grains for your biggest health boost. And when you sneak in a piece of organic fruit, you know your kids are getting a pesticide-free dose of fiber, vitamins, and enzymes. Cheap fabric/ air freshener 1/4 cup of favorite smelling liquid fabric softener 32 oz bottle filled with water Add softener and shake well before each use. Refreshes bed, couch, carpet, clothes, etc.....(AKAcheaper Febreeze) Use your favorite dryer fabric softener sheets to keep dust off your cold air returns. Just use a small piece of tape to secure them to the outside of the vent. Change them when they look dusty. Put a sheet in your vacuum cleaner over the filter to make your home smell great while vacuuming. Pack a sheet in your suitcase when traveling and your cloths stay fresh smelling. If the smell of cooked foods linger in the kitchen and surrounding rooms, place a bowl of white vinegar in the kitchen for 1-2 hours.......easy, low in cost, and good for our environment.

This is the perfect time to get a jumpstart on some home organization projects before the rush of the holiday season is upon you. Kitchen – Between camping trips and cookouts, it’s easy to let your pantry and cabinets get, shall we say, less than organized? This is a great time to clear out the clutter, toss the expired goods, get rid of cereal boxes with less that ½ cup of cereal in them, toss the bags of stale marshmallows, give the cabinets a wiping down, clean out the fridge and organize your spice rack. Closets – Sports season is starting up and you it’s time to make room in the closet for all that gear. This is the perfect time of the year to go through the closets and dressers and donate what you don’t want/need, box up school projects from the previous year, recycle old torn linens and towels into rags, take stock of holiday supplies, and get ready to swap out the summer wardrobe for the fall. Bathrooms – It really doesn’t take long for the once neatly organized cabinets of the bathroom to become a catchall of hair ties and Q-tips. Take a few minutes to organize the bathroom supplies, toss old toiletries, stock up on necessary first aid items and give the cabinets a good wiping down. Office – Who can keep up with paperwork when the sun is shining and the lake is calling your name every weekend? This is the perfect time to start whittling down that pile of papers that grew on your desk over the summer. Shred, file or store the important stuff. Restock the pencils, pens and paper, and make sure the printer has plenty of ink for all those homework projects. Get your desk all tidy and neat so you have plenty of room to start your new stack of papers you don’t feel like filing. Garage – Garages can turn into the biggest junk heaps in the course of a busy summer, packed with bikes, gardening tools and other toys, it’s a big project to keep up with. This is a great time to get all those summer toys cleaned up and put away, to organize tools, repair broken bikes, and restock necessary items. It’s also a chance to sweep out the summer dust just be sure to wear a proper ventilation. Broken Eggs If you drop an egg on the floor, generously sprinkle salt over it and let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Sweep the dried egg into a dustpan.
