How to Get Children Eating Healthy?

I recently met a new mom who was breastfeeding her 3 month old baby. I for sure support breastfeeding because it is the most powerful and natural thing for the health of both mom and baby. However, this mom got sick and went on medication and therefore needed to stop breastfeeding. When she switched to bottle feeding, the baby freaked out. The baby refused to take the bottle for a day or two, maybe even a week. I am not sure if the baby refused to eat for a week, but for a day or two she didn’t eat. It was about a week ordeal of major tantrums. Nevertheless, after some period of readjusting the baby took the bottle and is just fine now, growing beautifully.

The human body is designed to survive, especially when there is love. Children may test boundaries to see how much they can control, but they will not starve to death when it comes down to it. I mean maybe if a child has some sort of major mental illness or disfunction, but a regular child will not starve themselves. There may be a period of testing and tantrums, but in the end the child will eat what you give them. This is something a trained nutritionist told me when I was an intern at a high school co-facilitating educational programs for teen moms about healthy eating and safe sex.

A lot of parents struggle because their child only eats pasta and some other unhealthy things and refuses the eat vegetables when you offer it to them. There may be a few reasons why this happens. First of all, you may offer the vegetables next to a pizza. Of course most children are going to fill themselves up with pizza and not have room for the salad. Or you tell them to eat the healthy foods, but you are not firm and you just let the child walk all over you because you don’t want to deal with their screaming. Also, children do not like spicy things. So when you prepare things make sure you just use salt and turmeric. Although turmeric is considered a spice, it does not taste spicy. Children also like simple things and they want the food to look nice. So don’t give them some weird looking food with black pepper that looks like dirt. Secondly, it is very important to detoxify yourself and your husband before conception. If an unexpected blessing happens that is fine, but if you have time to prepare I recommend at least three months of no alcohol, no drugs, low sugar etc, and lots of organic fresh healthy foods and pure water. Moreover, when the mother is pregnant she needs to eat healthy, because this is when you are also introducing things to the baby. How can you expect the child to eat healthy when you ate cookies and processed food during pregnancy and continue to eat it in front of the baby? You are the babies greatest role model and you are an example for them. If you need to binge on pizza and cookies because you have an eating disorder and addictions to food, don’t do it in front of your child, and when you all sit down for dinner make sure you eat healthy with them. Just like the story of the baby whose mom could no longer breast feed due to medications, you can also get older children to eat differently. Children will put up a fight for a day or more and refuse to eat, and they will have tantrums for maybe a week or two, but in the end they will not starve themselves, they will end up eating that salad to make the pain in the belly go away. Also if the child is acting disrespectful, which is usually learned from their parents or teachers, or someone, you need to give them a time out. There is a science to time outs and here it is:

When a child is acting out rudely like yelling or throwing food, get down to their level, don’t hover over them, that is intimidating. Get on their level, look them in the eyes, and say in a firm and serious voice. “Please stop this behavior, use your indoor voice, hands are not for hitting, etc. This is your warning.” Giving them a warning is key. Do not punish a child before the warning. It is not fair, you need to give them an opportunity to make a decision. If the child continues the negative behavior, do not negotiate, do not yell, and for God’s sake never hit the child. Pick up the child, take them by the hand and walk them over to a time out spot. It can be a step or a special designated area, away from toys and other fun things. You again get down to their level, look them in the eyes, and say in a firm voice, “I am giving you a time out because you did this or that.” And then you walk away. Do not negotiate or argue, just walk away. Set a timer. If a child is 4 give them 4 minutes time out. If a child is 7, give them 7 minutes time out. If a child gets out of their time out before the time is up, reset the timer and put them back without saying anything. Quietly walk them back to the time out spot. Do not talk to them during this time, do not reward with communication. This may take a few tries and this may take a few hours. But it gets easier and then the child will stay in time out the first time and learn from the first time. Once the child did their time, you come back, again get down to their level and repeat, “I put you in time out because of so and so. I want an apology.” Then when the child says a genuine sorry you should hug and make up, no grudges. If a child does not want to hug right away, that is okay, give them space, but they need to say ‘I am sorry’ before you let them off the time out spot. With this technique you are teaching them positive discipline, self control, and respect that will help them greatly in their life. I learned this time out technique from an amazing woman named Jo Frost who had a popular show called the SupperNanny. You can find episodes on youtube and you can find her on social media and follow her and her work. I am thankful to my friend Sarah who suggested I watch the SupperNanny episodes. I have probably watched over 30 for sure.

Again, do not give your children any processed food. It is filled with chemicals that mess up their brain and body. If you want to give them a treat, make it organic and do the 90/10 or 90/5 rule. Where 90% of food is healthy and nutritious. A child is not going to die from not eating one day, but by teaching them the importance of proper diet you will be helping them for the rest of their lives. This was not as big of an issue in past generations because processed food was not as available. Now it is everywhere! Cereals, boxed meals, candy! Also beware, even if the box says organic does not mean it is healthy. Reading labels is key. Some products only require 70% to be organic ingredients and the rest junk. I always say, stay away from packaged food. Parents need to take charge and stop being lazy. If you don’t know how to cook, learn. It is not hard to cook. No one is asking you to roast a stuffed turkey. Making eggs, salad, and some sweet potatoes is super easy. Making a shake with kefir from grass fed cows and organic cacao powder with chia seeds is easy.  Just put it all in a cup and shake it. Making a trail mix with dried fruits is easy. Also stay away from bananas, they are not healthy. Way too many people are eating these sugar sticks because they think it is fresh, but it has been hybridized and messed with for a long time. Even if they say the banana is organic, it is not good. A real banana is tiny compared to what you see in a store.

Unhealthy diet is linked to hormone inbalance and much more. Plus we all want to be beautiful and feel good. When I go to the grocery store the only place I go to is the fresh produce isle, and based on what they have available, I brainstorm and see what to make from the selection in front of me. Sometimes it is zucchini, or brussel sprouts, or cauliflower. I like to cook those but I also love to eat a lot of fresh raw vegetables like arugula, radishes, cucumbers, lettuce, etc. I season it with olive oil and apple cider vinegar, but you can get pretty creative with healthy dressings if you would like. Make it yourself! Don’t be lazy. Avoid nitrates, preservatives, and GMOs!!!

It is important how you fuel your bodies and your children’s bodies. You are also voting with your dollars, so purchase things that are ethical, pure, humane, organic, and healthy. In the photo below I reused bottles to make camomile tea from fresh flowers! I got them at the farmers market from a very nice young lady and her husband. I also love making tea with peppermint and lavender. Yum!

Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy

Pregnant women should protect themselves from wifi. Use EMF absorbent crystals like tourmaline and sodalite. Limit your time on cell phone drastically or if you can completely get rid of it for 9 months. Have your husband take your calls, lol. Get an ethernet cable for your home computer. Throw away the microwave. Avoid places that have wifi. Spend more time outdoors- just make sure when you are hanging outside you are not near cell phone towers.

Bentonite Clay Body Awesomeness

I just did total body with Bentonite Clay. And I feel really good after! Looks like my skin is glowing, feels smooth and soft. I loved its effect especially on my legs! It did take off my tan a bit, so it looks like it is also an exfoliant. I mixed Bentonite Clay with apple cider vinegar. I highly recommend. I feel really cleansed and good. It is for sure a good detox from everyday illusions.
“Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. Healing clays like Bentonite have a high concentration of minerals including silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and potassium. It is said to heal skin issues such as inflammation and cellulite.”

Think Positive Release Illusion

It is really important to think positive. Thinking positive literally changes the world for the better. When you think positive your vibration increases. If enough people raise their vibration daily it will change the weather and the way the world is. Government, financial system, and some other organizations like Monsanto and Coca Cola are not doing a good job. Things that suck so much can be labeled as dark/evil. So it is important to not let those things affect our state of being. It is possible to be in joy at all times. It is important to re-focus your attention that gives you joy. You need to believe in yourself and in good magic and in God and the angels. Now is a really important time to focus on the positives. All of the illusions are leaving the planet. The more we create joyful energy in our heart and environment the faster this purification will take place. It’s really just hanging on by a string no matter how real or powerful it might seem. Stay informed, but do not become so obsessed with a topic that it turns you into a grouch. Do something  light about it. I believe social movements make a difference in bringing people together. Just make sure you are in charge of them and are not under the control of some agenda that tries to get masses out on the streets for whatever reason. Never use violence or aggression. If someone tries to do it around you, just walk away. For the most part, you should be doing things in the positives most of the time. Thinking positive, having positive behaviors like manners and respect, kindness is positive, being gentle with yourself is a huge positive. There are soo much that you can be doing that brings you to happiness. Cleaning your room is a good thing to do. Just make sure to turn off the tv! You should watch tv consciously. In some ways TV is being used as a weapon that is energetically manipulating people to feel bad. Be smart what and how you expose yourself to information and with who. I’ve heard of a story where a women completely cured the severe anxiety she was experiencing simply by turning off the TV while she sleeps. There are a lot of energy everywhere, you have the amazing free will to choose what you want to think about and do. Don’t let tv or radio just play in the background. Watch and listen with intension. Going out in nature is a great idea, it is very cleansing.

Dance~ I’m loving Barre Class

If you want to learn to dance or enhance your dancing abilities but you are not very coordinated or do not like memorizing choreography, you should take Barre classes. I was never good at memorizing choreography, because I guess I just prefer dancing to the beat of my own drum. I tried out to cheerleading in high school and  some dance group in college and didn’t make those squads. But I know how to dance with the flow nonetheless. However, learning and developing skills is always a good idea. Barre class helps me strengthen, activate,  and define the muscles that processional dancers use, while learning a few dance moves through repetition vs. Fast pace choreography routines. I tried taking a Classical Ballet class not long ago, and although I felt somewhat graceful during it, I won’t be going back any time soon. I’m just not into memorizing dance routines at the moment. Barre however has been a great fit for me. If you have an opportunity to take it with different teachers, you should, because each one has something special to offer.

I’ve been taking Barre class about twice a week for about a month, and I am really noticing some positive results in strength and dancing abilities! Barre is a mix between Ballet, Yoga, and Pilates with weights that focus on isometric strength training combined with high repetitions. It feels amazing and helps you move your body in awesome ways.

Time Out Technique for Children

Discipline is a very important component of successful parenting. Children need and crave boundaries and a loving parent(s) who is/are in charge. I learned this technique style from Supper Nanny Joe Frost. When talking to children for this technique, remember to always get down to their level and have them look you in the face.

  1. When you see a child doing something wrong, ask them to stop. And maybe refocus them on something else.
  2. If the child does not listen give them a WARNING. “Do you understand me?”
  3. If the child still does not listen put them into a time-out-bench, time-out-step, time- out-spot, etc or put older children into the reflection room. Always explain why you put them there.
  4. Walk away. Time out time = 1 minute per age. ex. 3 years get 3 minutes. 8 Years get 8 minutes.
  5. When you come back again repeat why you put them in time out. Ask them to apologize and say sorry. “I want you to look at me and say sorry.”
  6. Hugs and kisses. The situation is resolved for the time being, do not hold on to grudges.

recap

  1. Ask for the behavior to stop
  2. Give them warning
  3. Time out with explanation
  4. Walk away (mins)
  5. Come back, repeat explanation. Get an apology.
  6. Hugs and Kisses
