Start Some Healthy Holiday Traditions
Nov. 24, 2014 - The month of December can produce extra stress, a breakdown in healthy eating habits, even depression. But you and your family can adopt some new traditions that may help relieve the season's stress and make your holidays healthy and happy.
A Thanksgiving Menu Tune-Up
Nov. 17, 2014 - Holidays bring joy ... and food anxiety. How to cook, how to serve, and, finally, how much? In an era when we all seem to be on a diet, do you give in and make everything Grandma did?
Today's goal is not to re-create a Norman Rockwell painting, but to produce a festive meal you will be happy to serve on Thanksgiving Day. The biggest change: If you don't need to present the whole turkey for carving at the table, cook a turkey breast instead.
Facts about the common cold
Nov. 10, 2014 - An upper respiratory infection (URI), also known as the common cold, is one of the most common illnesses, leading to more doctor visits and absences from school and work than any other illness every year.
It is estimated that during a one-year period, people in the U.S. will suffer one billion colds. Caused by a virus that inflames the membranes in the lining of the nose and throat, colds can be the result of more than 200 different viruses. However, among all of the cold viruses, the rhinoviruses cause the majority of colds.
5 Ways to Avoid Colds and the Flu
Nov. 3, 2014 - You don't want to spend this winter battling a runny nose, a nagging cough, or a fever. But colds and flu come with the season, right?
They don't have to. Try this advice from the CDC.
Influenza (Flu) in Children
Oct. 27, 2014 - Influenza (flu) is a highly contagious viral infection and is one of the most severe illnesses of the winter season.
Influenza is a viral infection of the upper respiratory system, which includes the nose, bronchial tubes, and lungs. Influenza has these common symptoms:
A Simple Way to Keep the Flu Away
Oct. 20, 2014 - You can avoid the flu this season by taking one simple step: Get a flu vaccination.
Unfortunately, some people think that getting a flu immunization is too much trouble or costs too much. Or, they swear that a flu immunization will make them sick or make them more likely to catch the flu - or even colds.
Have a Hazard-Free Halloween
Oct. 13, 2014 - When we think of Halloween, we picture children laughing in colorful costumes, jack-o'-lanterns glowing in house windows, and buckets brimming with candy and treats. Experts warn, however, that this fun-filled night can pose safety hazards.
An alternative is to throw a Halloween party and invite kids, rather than have them out on the street. If your kids will be going door-to-door trick or treating, however, some precautions can make the evening safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Guidelines for Raising Smoke-Free Kids
Oct. 6, 2014 - Every day more than 4,000 U.S. teenagers try smoking, and nearly a third of them will become regular smokers. Parents can take practical steps to keep their children smoke-free. Initially, young people begin smoking to look cool without understanding the addictive nature of tobacco. But a person who starts smoking when young is more likely to continue the habit into adulthood. And quitting smoking later in life is a difficult task to overcome.
Child Health Emergencies
Sept. 29, 2014 - Having a very sick or severely injured child is a parent's worst nightmare. If it happened to your child, would you know the best way to go about getting treatment? Knowing when to call an ambulance is important.
Avoid Soccer Injuries in Your Kids
Sept. 22, 2014 - The school team. The town team. The travel team. If your young soccer player is on the field for several games or practices a week, it may be too much. Most injuries occur in the 10- to 14-year-old age group. Younger players are more susceptible to injury because they're still growing. Many soccer-related injuries are treated by health care professionals.
Give Young Athletes Plenty of Fluids
Sept. 15, 2014 - Odds are you wouldn't let your daughter play catcher in a baseball game without a facemask. You wouldn't send your son onto a football field without a helmet, either. But here's a sports precaution you may overlook -- getting kids to drink water and other healthy fluids.
Our bodies are about 60 percent water. During hot weather, if young athletes don't get enough water to replace what is lost through perspiration, they face the risk of dehydration. Dehydration means not having enough fluids in the body to function normally and can lead to serious heat-related illness.
