3 Tips For Improving Provo Kids’ Attention Spans

Orem immunization schedule

Hello Utah parents! Today in the Provo Children’s Health Blog, we are going to look at various ways to lengthen kids’ attention spans. An increased attention span can improve learning ability as well as behavior and is an important aspect of kids health in Orem.

1. Find an activity that will hold their attention. This might mean that you need to experiment with different types of toys and crafts. One child might enjoy building blocks while another may become engrossed in an art project. There are many craft and hobby stores in the Highland, American Fork, and Orem area where parents can get great ideas.

2. Recorded stories are a wonderful resource for increasing attention spans. Have your child lie on the floor and close their eyes, then play a recorded story. When it’s finished, have your child retell the story to you. Local Salt Lake City libraries are perfect for finding recorded books and stories. Or you can download audio books for your iPad or other electronic reader.

3. Make sure that your child is using age-appropriate toys, crafts, and media. Age recommendations can be very helpful when deciding what activities will effectively engage your child.

Remember that it’s natural for different children to have varying attention spans, but the attention span of all kids should improve with age.

Keep American Fork Kids Moving With An At-Home Dance Party!

Orem Kids Health

Healthy Salt Lake City area children don’t spend too much time sitting around. They keep busy with active play and Provo recreational sports. But sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate.

When it’s too hot, cold, or wet for your kids to go out, don’t just turn on the TV or share your iPad, get your kids moving with a dance party!

Many moms have discovered how fun it is to dance their way to health in exercise classes such as Zumba and Hip Hop. If you’ve attended these classes at your local Highland or Orem gym, try teaching your kids some of the simpler routines.

However, even if you prefer running to dancing, your kids will have fun. Just choose some music and start moving. You’ll be having fun and preventing childhood obesity at the same time.

Salt Lake City parents, don’t let the weather stop you from helping your kids find a way to move around and stay healthy!

Mosaic Magic For Provo Kids

Orem Kids Health

Parents in the Orem area know how important it is for kids to express themselves artistically. This can be a great boon for a child’s cognitive development as well as their emotional health.

But sometimes the crayons and paper can get a little boring for kids. Luckily, there are lots of easy ways to encourage American Fork and Highland children to create pictures and designs with unique materials and methods.

One of these methods is mosaics. Instead of drawing on paper, cut pieces of colored paper into small pieces. Then, allow your kids to organize the small pieces into a picture or design. Once they’ve completed their picture, give them some glue and have them adhere the mosaic to another complete piece of paper.

And you don’t have to stop at paper. There are plenty of materials that can be made into a mosaic.

A favorite material is dried beans. They are inexpensive, come in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes, and can be found in any Salt Lake City, Orem, or American Fork grocery store. However, remember that dried beans can be a choking hazard, so only use these and other small objects with older children.

My name is Paul Engemann and I am passionate about kids health in Orem. I want to help Salt Lake City parents to raise happy, healthy kids.

I own my own Provo home based business that sells Variety Pack. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 801-319-8687. We can discuss one of the many children’s health issues that is important to me, such as children’s nutrition and immunizations.

Planning For Hospital Emergencies In Salt Lake City

Planning For Hospital Emergencies In Salt Lake City

Provo parents hope to never have to take their children to the emergency room, but if the need arises, you will want to have done your homework.

First, make sure you know all of the hospitals in the Provo area. If the one nearest to you is a Children’s Hospital, then you’re in luck. If not, you should find out if the hospital near you has child-sized equipment and facilities (like a waiting room with toys and cartoons).

Secondly, having a brief summary of your child’s health history with you at all times is invaluable in an emergency. This is especially important if you child is on any medication or takes vitamins regularly.

Third, enlist the help of your Highland, American Fork, or Orem pediatrician in finding the right emergency room for you and your child.

Lastly, when you’ve made an informed decision about your hospital choices, drive the route from your Salt Lake City home to the hospital. Find out exactly where the emergency room is located and become familiar with traffic patterns on the route.

My name is Paul Engemann and I am very interested in kids health in Orem. I am the owner of a Salt Lake City area home business that sells Variety Pack.

Is Your Provo Child Anxious About Exams?

Is Your Provo Child Anxious About Exams?

Though stress can be brought on by a variety of different events, school tests are a common cause of nerves and anxiety for kids in the Salt Lake City area. Since stress that isn’t reduced or dealt with properly can be bad for a child’s health, here are a few pointers for helping your child deal with test stress.

Your child may manifest their stress in different ways. Some kids lose sleep or their appetite, while others may be irritable or seem depressed. Kids with excess stress often complain of pains in the stomach or headaches.

Speak with your child about what they are feeling and stay in communication with the teachers and administrators at your child’s Highland, American Fork, or Orem school. Explain to your child that nervousness is normal in these circumstances. Help them catalogue all the ways they have prepared so they can feel more in control.

Make sure to eliminate as much stress in their home life by being well-organized and flexible so they will have a calm place to study.

Remember to support all your child’s efforts and never be critical.

Continue encouraging healthy habits for your child, like sufficient sleep, healthy, regular meals for proper nutrition, and active exercise.

Keeping Highland Kids Healthy In Daycare

Keeping Highland Kids Healthy In Daycare

keeping-kids-healthyIf you are like most Highland parents, you do your best to keep your kids healthy. You take them to your Utah pediatrician for immunizations and vaccinations, teach them good hygiene habits, and try to get them to eat their veggies.

But what about kids in Highland daycare centers? Who is making sure children wash hands after using the bathroom and cover sneezes and coughs?

When researching 84604 zip code area daycare providers, ask them about their health and safety policies. Do they require that sick children stay home? Do they clean and disinfect tables and play areas? Do they require frequent hand washing?

Parents of children in daycare can do much on their own. They need to keep up-to-date on kids immunizations in Highland and ensure that their children are eating a wide variety of healthy foods to keep their immune system ready for anything that comes their way.

Even with all Utah parents and daycare providers do to prevent it, children will get sick. However, some studies have shown that children in daycare actually get less colds when they’re older than children that stay home. When first attending daycare, children may get sick a lot, but after about one year they often build up immunity, and are sick about as often as their stay-at-home counterparts. I guess the old saying is true (at least in this case): what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

3 Easy Ways For Provo Kids to Get More Antioxidants

Orem kids shot schedule

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Orem, American Fork, and Highland area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even kids.

Antioxidants work their magic by protecting cells from free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines.

Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You might remember from chemistry class that this is the same process that causes an apple slice to turn brown. During oxidation in the cells, DNA can be damaged and changed, which can create the beginnings of disease. A chain reaction of damage can also occur with one damaged molecule becomes a free radical itself and then damages another, and so on.

Now that you know their importance, here are 3 great ways to get more antioxidants into your kids’ diets.

1. Get more veggies on their plates at dinner time and in their lunch boxes

2. Make fruit the snack of choice for your family

3. When buying processed snacks, choose those fortified with antioxidants.

Salt Lake City Mega-Meals: Don’t Eat The Whole Thing!

Salt Lake City Mega-Meals: Don't Eat The Whole Thing!

It’s no wonder that many Provo children and teens struggle with weight issues. What is considered a ‘normal’ food portion has been getting bigger and bigger. In some cases, as with gargantuan Provo fast food soft drinks and Salt Lake City Costco muffins-on-steroids, it is absolutely ridiculous. And extremely unhealthy.

The findings from three large national surveys demonstrate:

‘Hamburgers have expanded by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger; soft drinks have increased in size by 52 percent, snacks, whether they be potato chips, pretzels or crackers, are 60 percent larger.’1

Provo restaurants and Salt Lake City food and beverage manufacturers are not the only ones sabotaging our children. Portion sizes have increased in homes, also.

If Provo parents are going to help their children maintain a healthy weight, learning proper portion sizes is critical. If we don’t know the size of a healthy portion, how can we teach our children?

The Mayo Clinic website has a great slide show that helps Salt Lake City parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/portion-control/NU00267
