October Is Children's Health Month

October is Children’s Health Month,
and one of my favorite sites, target="_blank">Healthy Child, Healthy World, has created a
calendar of tips for the month. It’s full of
easy-to-implement suggestions like, “Have your kids try a new
dip like hummus or guacamole”, or “Turn down your
thermostat”. Just the sort of small things that don’t
seem like too much effort to tackle, but which, at the end of the
month, will make you realize you can really effect a change in your
lives with baby steps.

So check out their href="http://www.healthychild.org/uploads/file/calendar.pdf"
- print it off and get started.
And if you’re really interested in learning more, buy their
book, href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHealthy-Child-World-Creating-Cleaner%2Fdp%2F0525950478%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1222917367%26sr%3D8-1&tag=1mother2anoth-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325"

Greener, Safer Home
, and delve deeper.

Think we can’t make start our kids our right from the
beginning? Every time I hand Maddie something to throw away, she
asks, “Trash can or recycling, Mama?” And every time I
clean our showers with baking soda and vinegar instead of the
strong chemical sprays for soap scum or mildew or whatever (you
know the kinds – you’ve got to wear a mask and keep a
window open) and notice that our house doesn’t smell like a
chemical lab when I’m finished, I know I’m making a
difference in my kids’ lives. For the better.

Just try the calendar – baby steps.
