The average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day. That is 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year. In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.
We’re recommended to keep our kids on a maximum of 2 hours of screen time each day. Is it really equivalent, to watch TV and play video games?
A just released Swedish study shows that there is a big difference. They studied children and found that computer time or video games time had no effect on the children’s weight. TV time or even spending time in a room with the TV on had a very clear link with overweight in the studied children.
How can it be surprising that kids will behave better in school if they have a quiet lunch?
An environment were children eat as fast as they can so that they can run out for recess is just bad.
They need a quite moment to sit down and enjoy their food just like everyone else.
A couple of days ago we stopped at a cold, windy beach on Captiva Island, Florida.
It was freezing. Everyone was cold except my youngest son. He was running around playing in the strong winds. Full of energy as always.

The next minute I was running after him up and down the sandy beach. It was awesome.
Thanksgiving day is coming soon and it won’t be complete without the turkey. Why not? Turkey is a rich source of nutrients such as protein, selenium, niacin, zinc, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and the amino acid tryptophan. Its skinless white meat is also an excellent high-protein, low-fat food. So it should be present in your holiday table.
Equally important to the nutrients that we’ll be getting is food safety. Our foods should be handled properly from the time they are bought until they are served to avoid poisoning or upset stomach.
