Plant Based Food Group Supports Lower Obesity Rates Among Children


Just a quick note to everybody who follows and watched what's going on with the childhood obesity epidemic in this country.

A new research was just published reporting that those kids whose diet was dominated by plant-based foods were on the lowest grid to become obese later in life.

The major points of this study are:

1. Specific plant-based foods play a significant role in preventing childhood and adulthood obesity
2. Consumption of Full fat dairy products may lead to higher rates of obesity in kids, and therefore, in adults later

What to do?

1. Add more vegetables and fruit into your kid's daily diet
2. Consume Low fat dairies as they are still necessary for the child's growth, but with less fat in them

One more thing for you, my dear women, to know about and remember.

Tasty Brand Organic Snacks: Cereal Bars and Gluten Free Gummy Snacks
 Do you ever think about how many people are stricken with all kinds of unknown ailments, conditions, diseases? It is difficult, at times almost impossible to accommodate their diet and physical body needs at the best of such needs.

A lot of physical conditions have become so common, that we label them as an epidemic within our nation. And here I do mean obesity and all the reciprocal chronic diseases that sprout out of the obesity epidemic.

Education for the roots and causes for such diseases like obesity is vital. And what we truly need is an overhaul of the whole Food Industry to start to follow principles of whole ingredients combining in the food offered to public.

Many companies get it. Many have started this painful process of change (which will take decades at the pace they’re moving.)

Word World for Your Child – Start Early! Review

WordWorld DVD: Get Up And Move
 My kiddo is growing up. Fast. And with each playing routine that I do with him, I do my best to vary and introduce different crafts, musical, and physical activities. And my child does love a good movie!

A very interesting thing happens when he watches any cartoon on his DVD player. He doesn’t sit still. He is active. He runs. He jumps. He follows almost the same trajectories of movement like the heroes in those DVDs. To watch my son watching a video is an amazing FUN for me!

A couple of months ago, I was sent a DVD for testing and reviewing by the WordWorld guys. The name of the DVD is Get Up And Move. What a great beginning right in the title!

My son just started watching this new video last week. And he keeps asking for it again and again. To say the least, I was impressed by the innovative way of introducing Words and Sounds to a newbie, my child who is 3 years-old. It’s not just the presentation through animation. It is a methodical, science-based system that is offered in a playful, fun way to be and to act.

And my boy loves it because it’s full of music, rhymes, physical activities that those characters perform with him!

The characters of this DVD are not many. And that allows to get acquainted with them well. And fall in love with each of them for their friendship and real-like-life characteristics! These characters are Duck, Dog, Pig, Frog, Sheep, Bear, and Ant.

Why I DO Recommend this Phenomenal DVD by WordWorld to any mom with children who cannot read yet. Because WordWord:
• Is based on research with preschool children, teachers and parents
• Draws from four (4) skill sets: Print Awareness, Phonetics and Letter Knowledge, Comprehension, and Socio-Emotional skills
• Organized in a musical and supportive way for a child
• Encourages to love the world of words

If you are on the lookout of an educational, yet very informative, social and reading-skill based tools – head to the web and find a DVD from WordWorld. You will enjoy it yourself. And your kiddo would love it. And who knows, may be she’ll say “thank you” for that later in life.

Celebrate WordWorld Fun Education Today!

Organic Every Step of Your Way – Chocolate Covered Fruit Giveaway (6/23), Closed – Winner #51 "Codi"

Kopali Organics Giveaway
NB: Per Sponsor request, the giveaway has been extended til June 23, 2011. Thank you!

If you really love chocolate. If you truly are all about taste and sophistication. Then Kopali Organics chocolate and yummy fruit and berries are for you.

Without any exaggeration or simplification, this company – Kopali Organics – changes lives on the daily basis – lives of small farmers worldwide, lives affected by its products here in the United States.


A Win-Win situation is created by connecting small farmers who grow their foods organically out of respect and value for their land, with the growing market in the U.S. of those who care about the quality of food we feed our bodies and souls.

For the past seven years, Kopali Organics has made a huge statement in the organic market for the small farmer. The entrepreneurs who started the company got together before they became a “company” with the desire to offer an alternative to foods produced using harmful chemicals which damage delicate ecosystems and people’s lives.

With this mission, Kopali Organics created its high-quality, delicious line of SUPERGOOD SUPERFOOD.

Kopali Organics is all about working with sustainable family farmers and their communities. Farmers are paid well. They’re equipped with knowledge and support of how to preserve what they’ve got from nature and make money off it, rather than selling off their land to the oil and gas companies that abandon their “drilling” mission after a few short years. Leaving the Land and its people with nothing to live off.

The Kopali Organics offers the sustainable farming communities an invaluable opportunity to develop their trade mastery with what they harvest from their land.

Because of that, what you and I buy at the store makes a huge difference in the lives of the small organic farmers, their communities, and our own bodies as well!

The products by Kopali Organics are naturally grown. The word “organics” in the name of the company suggests that all of its products are organically grown.

The Kopali SUPERGOOD SUPERFOOD Dark Chocolates and Fruit Treats can enliven anybody’s taste buds. Easily!

I loved Chocolate Covered Banana bits and dried Mango Superfood that were sent to me by Kopali Organics! They have all the power of antioxidants and LIFE within. No sprayed chemicals to preserve freshness of these dried fruit in a packet! Just pure fruit. Just pure chocolate!

You too can join me by Celebrating and Applauding the Kopali Organics’ Mission of sustainable agriculture in the precious rainforest of this Planet.

Check out what Organic yummies selection they've got to offer:
• Chocolate Covered Banana
• Chocolate Covered Goji Berries
• Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
• Chocolate Covered Mulberries
• Chocolate Covered Cacao Nibs
• Mango Superfood
• Pineapple Superfood
