Individual vs. Team Sports For Phoenix Kids

Individual vs. Team Sports For Phoenix Kids

There are growing numbers of kids in the Mesa area involved in team sports. Participating in these activities can be a very positive experience for Phoenix kids. They can enhance health and fitness, social maturity, and even cognitive development.

What if your child doesn’t want to participate in organized team sports in your ARIZONA community? Perhaps they have yet to develop the skills necessary or find team sports too competitive or intimidating.

Fortunately, Mesa children who participate in individual sports or even simple playful activities can receive the same benefits. With a team, the child has a coach to guide and encourage them in the chosen sport. Absent the team and coach, the guidance can come from the active role parents play in their child’s chosen sport.

ARIZONA parents who playfully nurture their child by playing catch, shooting baskets, or tossing pitches, encourage skill and personal development without the possible downsides of competition.

Many parents in Phoenix are organizing non-competitive sports groups. These allow kids to experience sports, meet new friends, and enjoy the improved health and fitness that comes from being active.

6 Fun Day-Off-School Activities For Gilbert Kids

Top Home Businesses In Glendale

Most of the elementary schools in Phoenix seem to have more random days off than in years past. Sometimes these days can catch parents off guard. What to do when your kids are going to be home all day in the middle of the week?! Well, if you didn’t schedule appointments with your Mesa pediatrician or dentist for a check-up, then try one of these fun ideas to keep your kids active and healthy on their days off.

1. Help them make a treasure hunt, indoors our out, depending on the weather. Once they’re done they can invite friends over to find the treasure (the treasure can be almost anything, since the real prize is following the clues!). When the hunt is over, serve a small picnic for the hungry hunters.

2. Hold an art exhibit. Get out the paints and modeling clay and then let your kids spend the morning creating works of art to display.

3. Healthy kids are active kids, so help them plan a kid Olympics! Give them the freedom to choose how to judge and award medals, then sit back and watch them wear themselves out!

4. Have a family history day. Encourage your kids to write in their journals and ask them to share some favorite family stories that you can record in their own words. If you have stories of your ancestors, this is a good time to share them with your kids.

5. Go visit a local Gilbert, Chandler, or Glendale museum, historical site, petting zoo, or aquarium. Remember, this is a day to do something with your kids that you’ve always been putting off, so do it!

6. Visit a resident of a local Phoenix convalescent home. Some elderly men and women rarely get visitors. Your kids will feel good about brightening someone’s day. They could bring them flowers or an original piece of art. (See activity number 2.) My name is Amanda Moore and I want to help Phoenix families to raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Glendale concern me. I am the owner of a Phoenix area home business that sells Protein Meal.

Old-School Snacks For Phoenix Kids

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Gilbert Kids

What does it take to make a healthy snack? The aisles at every Gilbert, Chandler, and Glendale 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.

Planning For Hospital Emergencies In Phoenix

Planning For Hospital Emergencies In Phoenix

Mesa parents hope to never have to take their children to the emergency room, but if the need arises, you will want to have done your homework.

First, make sure you know all of the hospitals in the Mesa area. If the one nearest to you is a Children’s Hospital, then you’re in luck. If not, you should find out if the hospital near you has child-sized equipment and facilities (like a waiting room with toys and cartoons).

Secondly, having a brief summary of your child’s health history with you at all times is invaluable in an emergency. This is especially important if you child is on any medication or takes vitamins regularly.

Third, enlist the help of your Glendale, Chandler, or Gilbert pediatrician in finding the right emergency room for you and your child.

Lastly, when you’ve made an informed decision about your hospital choices, drive the route from your Phoenix home to the hospital. Find out exactly where the emergency room is located and become familiar with traffic patterns on the route.

My name is Amanda Moore and I am very interested in kids health in Gilbert. I am the owner of a Phoenix area home business that sells Protein Meal.

How Does Nature Make Gilbert Kids Happier?

Gilbert kids shot schedule

Hello Mesa parents! Welcome the the Phoenix Kid’s Health Blog. I’m sure most of you know how important it is for your kids health to spend time outdoors each and every day. But it may be even more important than you think.

Just like proper nutrition, immunizations, and vitamins, getting outside is essential for your child’s health.

One reason if for the natural light of the outdoors. This natural light keeps kids alert and healthy. Also, exposure to this light in the morning has a way of setting children’s internal clocks to promote better sleep and earlier bedtimes. (And what Glendale parent doesn’t want earlier bedtimes?!) Another reason is that nature soothes and comforts children in safe, healthy ways. Studies have shown that children have better ability to focus with increased time outdoors. This will translate to more productive learning time as well as more tranquility in the home. Lastly, outdoor exercise is superior to indoor exercise because it promotes more physically vigorous play like jumping, running, and tumbling. These are all of the things that Chandler area parents are always telling their kids to stop doing in the living room!

Arrange your family’s schedule so that your children have time to explore the Mesa outdoors, and everyone will be better for it!

3 Tips For Improving Mesa Kids’ Attention Spans

Gilbert immunization schedule

Hello ARIZONA parents! Today in the Mesa 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 Gilbert.

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 Glendale, Chandler, and Gilbert 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 Phoenix 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.

I am the owner of my own Mesa home business that promotes Protein Meal.

Chandler Children And Vitamins

Chandler Children And Vitamins

Many parents in the Phoenix area are interested in proper nutrition for their children and they want to make sure their kids are getting all the vitamins and minerals they need. Before parents assume that their children need supplemental vitamins, here are a few things to consider.

By far, the best way to meet your child’s nutritional needs is with real, whole foods. Even picky eaters are likely getting what they need since many common foods are fortified with necessary vitamins and minerals.

Next time you’re shopping at your Glendale, Chandler, or Gilbert grocery store, try to buy a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Also, look for whole grains when buying bread and pasta.

Make sure you’re providing regular balanced meals and healthy snacks for your children.

Since vitamins and supplements do carry some risks, you should consult with your Mesa pediatrician about their use. If one is recommended for your child, be sure it is an age-appropriate product.

Keep Chandler Kids Moving With An At-Home Dance Party!

Gilbert Kids Health

Healthy Phoenix area children don’t spend too much time sitting around. They keep busy with active play and Mesa recreational sports. But sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate.

When it’s too hot, cold, or wet for your kids to go out, don’t just turn on the TV or share your iPad, get your kids moving with a dance party!

Many moms have discovered how fun it is to dance their way to health in exercise classes such as Zumba and Hip Hop. If you’ve attended these classes at your local Glendale or Gilbert gym, try teaching your kids some of the simpler routines.

However, even if you prefer running to dancing, your kids will have fun. Just choose some music and start moving. You’ll be having fun and preventing childhood obesity at the same time.

Phoenix parents, don’t let the weather stop you from helping your kids find a way to move around and stay healthy!

Keep Your Phoenix Kids Fit

Keep Your Phoenix Kids Fit An important element in any ARIZONA child’s health is physical activity. Most young Mesa children are busy exploring their world and don’t need any encouragement to run, skip, or jump. But spontaneous activities like these may decline during the tween years when most Gilbert children begin spending more time on indoor activities like TV watching, video game playing, and texting.

As Phoenix parents we need to be more proactive during these years to make sure our kids are physically fit. Helping them choose a popular Phoenix sport such as soccer, baseball, or skiing is an excellent way to encourage activity.

Provide active toys such as jump ropes, hula hoops, bikes, and roller blades and limit sedentary activities like movie watching.

Model the physically active behavior you want your Mesa child to have. Take walks with your kids. Take advantage of Phoenix recreational options. Go snow boarding, swimming, or hiking with them to show them that being active and fit is important to you.

Active Gilbert kids need healthy between-meal snacks such as dried fruit, nuts, string cheese, and protein bars. As a child’s health advocate in ARIZONA, I would love to share one of my favorite super-nutritious snacks with you. Please contact me today!

Music is Magic for Mesa Kids

Gilbert immunization schedule

Parents in and around Mesa 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 Glendale, Chandler, and Gilbert parents to start their kids young, it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. Music stores in the Phoenix 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 Mesa community for musical events such as church, school, and community performance programs. Check with Glendale, Chandler, and Gilbert libraries, websites, and community centers for more information.

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