10 Healthy Snacks for Kids to Enjoy





Kids are more active during their summer break than they are during the school year. To keep their energy levels up and prevent them from dehydration because of playing and other activities they need to eat more snacks that can help boost their immunity and good source of vitamins & minerals.

Here are 10 ideas for healthy snacking:
Watery Fruits such as melon and berries with string cheese
A carton of yogurt
Turkey jerky (a good source of protein and helps replace sodium losses that occur through sweating) plus fruit
Protein bars made with nuts, fruits, seeds, and little added sugar
Half a turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread
Hummus with baby carrots
Mixed nuts
Apple slices with peanut butter
Celery sticks
Air-popped popcorn

Don’t forget to keep your kids well hydrated too! Plain water is great, but a small amount of flavor may actually encourage your kids to drink more. Sports drinks may be appropriate for active kids, or you can add some pieces of fresh fruit to a water bottle to infuse it with flavor.
You can make popsicles with diluted fruit juice or sports drinks, too. And don’t forget watery fruits like melon: they’re more than 90% water and can really help to replace fluid losses as well as potassium which is lost in sweat.

Food Safety Considerations 
Exercising outdoors with your kids is fun and motivating, but how to make sure the food or healthy snacks you take with you are safe to eat?
To protect your family from foodborne illness during warm-weather months, safe food handling when eating outdoors is critical. Follow these simple food safety guidelines, recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Take a cooler with you
Cold food should be stored at 40 °F or below to prevent bacterial growth. Once outdoors, limit the number of times the cooler is opened as much as you can. This helps to keep the contents cold longer.
Don’t cross-contaminate
If you’re taking raw meat, poultry, or seafood with you, keep it securely wrapped. This keeps their juices from contaminating foods that will be eaten raw, such as fruits and vegetables.

Clean your produce
Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under running tap water before packing them in the cooler — including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten.
When it comes to leftovers, an easy way to remember food storage guidelines is simple: two hours, two inches, four days – the numbers make up the “2-2-4 rule:”
Two hours is how long foods can safely stay at room temperature after you’ve taken them out of the oven or off the grill – or, in the case of cold foods, how long they can safely stay out of the refrigerator or insulated cooler.
The two-inch rule means that you should store leftover foods in shallow containers no more than two inches thick, so they can cool evenly and quickly. If containers are too deep, it takes too long for the food in the middle to cool down.
The last rule says that you should use your refrigerated leftovers within four days; otherwise, you should toss them out. But many leftovers are pretty tasty, so chances are they’ll be long gone before then.

Tigdas/Measles: Mga Sintomas, Pagkain at Lunas

Pagkatapos ng Dengvaxia incident maraming magulang ang natakot na pabakunahan ang mga anak ng libreng bakuna na inaalok ng DOH Health Centers. Yung iba sa atin hindi na pinabakunahan ang mga anak laban sa measles, tetanus, rubella at cervical cancer
(HPV).

Nito lang week dinala namin uli si Chelsea sa Pedia nya dahil sa pabalik-balik na lagnat at ang napansin ko na rashes sa may bandang dibdib at tyan nya. Sinabi sa amin ng doctor na patuloy namin obserbahan si Chelsea dahil maaring mayroong Measles outbreak, sapagkat 3 na sa kanyang naging pasyente ng araw na iyon ay postive sa measles.

Nagdeclare ng measles outbreak ang DOH sa Zambonga City noong February 2018, 495 na kaso
sa Davao city starting from January-September 2108, at barangay sa taguig
noong March 2018.


Anu-ano nga ba ang sintomas ng tigdas (measles)? Mga kailangang gawin? Mga pagkain na 
pwede at bawal kainin.

Nutri 10 Plus, Vitamins Perfect For Child's Growing Needs

Summer is already here. The temperature last week was 34°c and its getting hotter everyday. We have to open our windows to make sure that we won't get suffocated because of the heat. Summer is also the season of flu, bacteria that can cause cough and build up of phlegm. Kids should always be geared with proper protection. Their body needs protection from harmful diseases.

That's why I was so thankful that I used Nutri 10 vitamins for my Chelsea. This is the kind of vitamins that she really need. For sure most of you know that Chelsea is a picky eater. She only eat if we have Sinigang or gravy that she put in her steamed rice.



After taking Nutri 10 for almost a month now. I noticed some changes in her appetite and daily routine.  Before, Chelsea stays up until 2 am and wakes up around 11 am. Thankfully that routine changed and she also started to eat vegetables.
As a mom I'm always worried because I know that she is not getting the right nutrients that her body needs.
