Raising Your Kids From the Inside Out

Nowadays it seems if many parents are very worried about what 
their children are watching on TV or what they are looking at on 
the computer. It seems as if many parents are so absorbed with 
what their kids are doing that they forget about a very important 
part of childhood -- the effects of good nutrition. Not only the 
daily effect, but the life-time effects as well.

Many households today either have both parents working outside 
the home or are a single parent family where the parent works 
full time. Full time jobs, sports, activities, homework and more 
are all daily chores that must be done and they create a very 
stressful, fast-paced life. There is hardly any time to sit down 
and eat a well-balanced, nutritious meal and this may be harming 
children more than it is helping them.

With many families eating on the run, there is no time to 
consider what your children are really eating. Parents will 
take the time to see what their kids are watching on TV or the 
internet, but they don't pay much attention to what their kids 
are eating. These quick prepared meals that your children are 
eating are mainly processed foods that are full of sweets, fats, 
and oils and according to the Food Guide Pyramid developed by 
the US Department of Agriculture, "...foods that include lots 
of fats, oils and sweets should be used sparingly". --- 
However, the process of eat and run often caters to a high intake 
of sweets, oils and fats.

Do you know that by providing your child good nutritious meals 
every day you can diminish his/her craving for junk food? 
Children crave junk food because it is quick, fast, and it taste 
good. Healthy, nutritious foods can also be quick, fast and taste 
good. You simply have to program your child to know which is 
better to grab from the refrigerator; a Snicker's Bar or a fresh 

The other day, I went to my son's school for a "mommy luncheon" 
and I was simply horrified at some of the things that I seen 
these children eating. Some of them had candy bars, potato chips 
and soda in their lunch boxes. I did not see one child with a 
piece of fresh fruit or a vegetable. I thought, "No wander there 
is so much obesity today". I almost wanted to toss all that out 
and go out and buy these children a healthy lunch. It really made 
my stomach turn.

Children should eat foods from the Food Pyramid everyday. It is 
not all bad to eat sweets, fats and oils. As the matter of fact, 
our bodies need those elements, but in small portions. Children 
who snack on fruits, vegetable and other healthy foods will not 
crave junk food. They will not get obese and they will live 
healthier lives.  If your child gets a full belly by eating an 
apple and some cheese and crackers with a glass of milk after 
school, he/she is not going to want that candy bar or that soda 

In addition to good, nutritious, healthy foods, parents should 
also give their children some vitamin supplements. According to 
Dr. Tanya Kurtz, MD, "Children who take vitamins between the ages 
of six months and 5 years old tend to be healthier. They do not 
get sick as often and their mental and physical development is 
at higher levels than children who do not take them." Vitamin 
supplements can curve a child's hunger or snacking craving 
between meals and eliminate the threat of obesity. Your child's 
good health depends on you, so you really should try to boost 
that good health with a vitamin supplement of some sort. Just 
think, wouldn't it be nice if your child was the one student in 
his/her class that did not get sick when the flu broke out? That 
would be because you took the time to consider his/her good 
health by providing them with good nutritious meals and daily 
vitamin supplements.

In conclusion, I would like to tell all parents about something 
that I have tried. It is called Essentialean(tm) and it is a 
vitamin supplement that alleviates obesity in children. It can 
be found at Amazon or at  It curves 
the hunger so that the child does not have the urge to snack.

It was formulated in large part by a leading doctor who is 
concerned with lowering childhood obesity by providing a high 
quality nutritional supplement. I actually gave this a try for 
a month or so, mixed with a variety of good, well-balanced, 
nutritious meals and I could not believe what happened.

1.) My child lost about 5 pounds (He was about 10-15 pounds 
overweight when I started giving him Essentialean(tm)),

2.) My son stopped asking for junk food and started asking for 
healthy snacks, especially grapes, and

3.) He seemed happier which will reflected in everything he did 
including school, sports, and other activities. I think that 
Essentialean(tm) ia a very powerful vitamin supplement and well 
worth my child's good health.

It is time that parents start worrying more about what and how 
their children eat. Their eating patterns today will determine 
how they eat as adults. Our eating habits can easily be linked 
to our good or bad health. So, start teaching your children 
good eating habits now, so that they will grow up and be 
responsible eaters for a life time.
