September is Childhood Obesity Month, and whether a child is overweight, underweight, or just right, the importance of a healthy diet and training the taste buds should not be underestimated.  Children that have good eating habits become adults that have good eating habits.  What you eat and how much you eat can be the best defense against obesity, so the earlier a child learns to eat right, the better.  Get low cost individual health plans here.

Bloomberg’s Ban on Soda: One lump or two?

Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

One lump or two?  That is what our Grandma’s said when they poured tea and coffee.  The days of one or two lumps of sugar are long gone.  Now it is 20 or 30 lumps, more like one CUP or two.  And we want it, we need it, we deserve it.  It is our constitutional right to drink a liter of soda.  It is not the government’s role to tell us what to put into our bodies, they should stay out of it.  Foot stomp.  Hold breath.  Turn blue.  Petulant child.  Petulant OBESE child whose foot stomp has caused the floor to quake.

Vitamins in a Delicious Sparkling Drink, Not a handful of pills

Why is a daily multivitamin supplement crucial to health?
Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are vital aspects of health and wellness because they help regulate all of the many processes that take place in our bodies. Even moderate deficiencies can lead to serious health consequences. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet is fundamental to ensuring proper nutrition, but the reality for most of us is that we do not meet all of our nutritional needs through diet alone. Supplementing with a daily multivitamin/mineral fills in the nutritional gaps that can be present in even the healthiest diets. The use of supplements continues to rise year after year, with the latest data showing that 49% of U.S. adults took a multivitamin/mineral in 2011, with 40% of people citing “overall health/wellness benefits” as the main reason they take supplements.
