Wayland Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Wayland Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Hello! Welcome to the Wayland children’s health blog. I am Healthy Chocolate Proponent Derrick Winkel. At this site, I publish information on nutrition and health issues that affect Wayland children and families. My goal is to improve the state of children’s health in the Middleville area.

Despite decades of increased awareness in Middleville about the dangers of a distorted body image and extreme dieting, eating disorders are still a serious problem.

A recent American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) study revealed disturbing facts about eating disorders among children.1 According to the report, 0.5 percent of teenage girls in the country are estimated to have anorexia. The bulimia rate among adolescent girls is estimated at more than double that at 1 to 2 percent. Though anorexia and bulimia are usually thought of as a problem for adolescents, Wayland parents should be aware that even young Middleville children are at risk, as well as males, though the rates are lower.

Michigan pediatricians can help Wayland parents with children affected by an eating disorder. The AAP recommends a combination approach for the treatment of eating disorders in children. Treatment plans usually include nutritional guidance and psychiatric counseling along with the appropriate medical care.

Vidoes Can Help Shelbyville E-Tailers

Vidoes Can Help Shelbyville E-Tailers

It seems like everyone in Shelbyville has their own video on YouTube. Whether it is a shaky phone-filmed clip of their daughter’s dance solo or the winning goal in a Shelbyville soccer game, videos have a huge impact.

The online marketplace is like the newspapers in Harry Potter’s world: the people in the photos actually move and talk! Why should your Shelbyville home business site be the electronic equivalent of an inert Muggle newspaper?

Savvy Shelbyville online retailers use the power of video to sell online.

Customer Testimonial Video
Record one of your satisfied Shelbyville home business customers enthusiastically extolling the virtues of your Shelbyville online business.

How-To Video
Find a YouTube clip of an expert explaining how to use your product or services. (Make sure you don’t drive potential customers to your competitor’s site.) This type of video works well for Shelbyville direct marketers. The parent company site usually has professional marketing videos ready to drop into your e-store.

Product Demonstration Video
This is similar to the previous two videos. This video should emphasize how your product or service is superior to your competitors. If you give product demos at Shelbyville trade shows, simply record one of them. Voila! A perfect video for your website!

Visual Stories
Easy-to-understand graphics and animation can explain complicated products and services. These are more difficult to produce yourself if you are not a professional. However, they can be extremely effective if your product or service is complex.

If you want more ideas for promoting your online store, contact me today.

Recession Proof Healthy Chocolate For Middleville

Middleville Hot Job In one of his always-insightful messages, Dan Martin, Xocai Vice President of distributor relations emphasized an important fact : Middleville Direct Marketing Businesses do well in economic downturns.

(I quote from his message with a few minor additions to personalize it for my readers):

The majority of today’s Middleville workforce is on the brink of economic collapse, living paycheck-to-paycheck, Michigan retirement funds dwindling or gone, and wishing they were self-employed. Bradley people can’t afford to tell their Shelbyville employer, “That’s it, I’m done.”

But our industry is booming in Michigan! Direct selling is one of the few business models that do well in Wayland in economic downturns. Your efforts are what allow you to break free from the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, set realistic retirement goals, and answer only to yourself.

I am sure you don’t need Dan Martin to remind you of the barren Wayland economic landscape. I was feeling uneasy about my Wayland professional future when I took a risk and started my own Middleville Xocai antioxidant chocolate business.

It wasn’t necessarily a financial risk, Xocai has low start-up costs for Shelbyville and Martin weight-loss chocolate entrepreneurs. It was more of a psychological risk. I had to believe that Bradley home-based antioxidant chocolate business success is possible.

Fortunately, my healthy chocolate business got off the ground quickly. (That’s not surprising; I sell healthy chocolate to Middleville antioxidant chocolate lovers.) Early success with short-term goals builds the confidence to reach long-term financial goals.

Let’s talk about your financial future. My number is 949 412-1001 and my email address is 526derrickwinkel@derrickwinkel.com.

Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Middleville Kids

Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Middleville Kids

Healthy, growing children need to snack between meals for proper nutrition. Most Wayland parents have probably had the experience of forgetting an afternoon snack. What happens? Kids finally notice they’re hungry about an hour before dinner, and boy is it hard to wait!

A great snack ingredient is peanut butter. It is an inexpensive source of protein and calories and gives Wayland children the nutrients they need to grow and to stay healthy.

Here are some great healthy snack ideas using peanut butter for Martin and Shelbyville kids.

Peanut Butter Banana Pops

Bananas, cut in half width-wise
Popsicle sticks
Peanut butter
Chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other topping

Take the popsicle sticks and push them carefully into the cut bananas. Spread peanut butter over the bananas and roll in nuts or other topping. Freeze. Enjoy.

Peanut Butter Balls

This is the kind of recipe you can’t really mess up, and the portions are approximate.

about 1 cup of peanut butter
a few tablespoons of honey (2-3)
a few tablespoons of instant dry milk

Mix everything together until it forms a large ball. Pinch off small pieces of dough, and roll into ball shapes. Store in the refrigerator, and pull them out at snack time.

My name is Derrick Winkel and I am concerned about issues such as vaccinations and childhood obesity in Bradley. I am the owner of a Wayland home business that sells a nutritional chocolate product. If you are interested in learning more, visit my website at http://derrickwinkel.com/about/ or give me a call at 949 412-1001.

‘Good Job, Bobby! Have Some Saturated Fat!’

'Good Job, Bobby! Have Some Saturated Fat!' Do your children’s Middleville school teachers reward good behavior with candy or cookies? Don’t you think it’s a little strange to reward Wayland children with something that is bad for them?

Using unhealthy food as a token of merit undermines Middleville nutrition education and encourages over-consumption of foods high in added sugar and fat. It can also set a precedent for emotional eating, prompting Michigan kids to eat when they’re not really hungry.

According to a recent study in The Journal of the American Medical Association, over the past three decades, the childhood obesity rate has more than doubled for preschool age children and tripled for children aged 6-11 years. In short, about 20 percent of children are obese. Our children here in Shelbyville, Martin, and Bradley are no exception.

As a child health advocate based in Wayland, I encourage all Michigan parents to use non-food alternatives when rewarding good behavior.

 

I reward my kids with a trip to the Shelbyville library or more outside play time. Food is used to fuel our bodies, not to reward us for doing things we should be doing anyway.

When my kids have had an active day at their favorite Shelbyville park we refuel with nuts and blueberries, which are loaded with antioxidants. Another favorite snack we like to eat to recharge is made from the cacao plant and is also packed with antioxidants.

For more information about this delicious Middleville kid-friendly snack and other children’s favorites, please contact me today. Thanks for visiting my Wayland children’s nutrition blog.

Low Risk Shelbyville Home Business

Low Risk Shelbyville Home Business

Hi, welcome to my Shelbyville home based business blog. This blog is for home business owners in Shelbyville and those that are currently weighing their options as they search for the perfect opportunity in Shelbyville.  One important factor in my decision to start an online Xocai Xe store is the low start-up cost.

Starting my Xocai Xe online store did not wipe out my entire savings account. Many Shelbyville home business owners start direct selling businesses on less than $250. For that low fee, you get are able to sell a quality product that has been tested extensively. You are also able to take advantage of thousands of dollars of market research and advertising campaigns.

There is a common perception that Shelbyville entrepreneurs are reckless risk-takers who will jeopardize everything they own to start their home business. I don’t think this is necessarily true in most cases. Savvy Shelbyville direct sellers take calculated risks while maintaining a strong back-up plan.

So far, I haven’t needed to use my back-up plan, but I have peace of mind knowing that it’s there. You can start a Xocai Xe business very reasonably. For the exact cost, give me a call today.

Rethinking Middleville Schools

Rethinking Middleville Schools Welcome to today’s Healthy Middleville Children blog. This site is dedicated to promoting children’s health in the Middleville area.

Unless you have been living in a cave for the last 20 years, you have heard about the obesity epidemic among U.S. children.

There are many worthwhile programs in the Middleville community that promote healthy eating habits and increased exercise for our youngest residents. I came across an interesting article last week that focused on how the design of schools can affect children’s health in general and obesity rates in particular.

‘Many schools were planned without thought given to how students can safely walk or ride their bikes to school. Playgrounds have been cut from budgets. An overemphasis on competitive sports has created a disproportionate amount of funding going to a select group of high profile sports, while minimizing the opportunities for the majority of students who desperately need exercise.’ Joel K. Sims, AIA, “Designing Schools To Fight Childhood Obesity,” School Designer, May 2007, http://www.schooldesigner.com/Articles/Designing-Schools-to-Fight-Childhood-Obesity-Part-1.asp, accessed on May 16, 2011

Here are some suggestions for making schools fitness-friendly:

  • Incorporate features of professional health clubs
  • Partner with community fitness centers to create multi-use facilities
  • Combine electronic entertainment and exercise
  • Incorporate movement into lesson plans

As we plan for new and renovated Middleville schools, let’s take our children’s fitness into consideration. As Middleville parents and educators, we can also promote lesson plans that incorporate movement. I also believe we need to look at how our tax dollars are spent. Do competitive sports programs in Michigan receive more than their fair share of available funds? Could we better use this money to provide exercise opportunities for all Middleville children?

I encourage you to raise awareness of these issues in your Michigan city. The only thing that will spur change is if parents, educators, and government leaders work together to lower the obesity rates in our Michigan communities.

New Ways To Sell Xocai Sipping Coco In Wayland

New Ways To Sell Xocai Sipping Coco In Wayland If you’re a veteran Wayland direct seller who hasn’t changed the way you operate your business in the past five years, this article is for you. I have been selling and recruiting with my iPhone using free or inexpensive small business apps for a couple of years now. It has allowed me to make better use of my time as I run my Wayland Xocai Sipping Coco business.

If you have not yet purchased an internet-enabled phone, I assure you that it is well worth the cost of a monthly data plan. If there are no 14 year-olds handy, I can show you how to use it.

The internet-based business apps now available are as sophisticated as those of Wayland companies ten times the size of a one-person operation. Instead of buying hardware and software, you can use those that are hosted on servers in the ‘cloud’.

If you are ready to jump into a business with the potential for unlimited income, I recommend using affordable cloud computing to make money with your own Xocai Sipping Coco internet store. Your store is open 24/7/365, even while you are working your day job, sleeping, or playing golf!

Email me at 526derrickwinkel@derrickwinkel.com (on your new smart phone, of course) to find out why my direct sales opportunity doesn’t require a big investment up front.
