A few tidbits to get us through the week …

There’s alot of chatter these days about health care. Moreover, most folks are saying our current system needs an overhaul.

I agree.

All this talk about the future of health care makes me think of my kids. I hope that for the better part of their lives, they’ll not have to depend on someone else for their health and well being. I hope that with a healthy diet, good hygiene and ample exercise, they’ll be free of most ailments and will have little if no face time with doctors, excepting for the usual checkups.

I thought the video below, as told by a group of kids, reflects some of the biggest problems of the American health care system today. And we dropped some links in at the bottom, to help keep families on the track toward healthy independence.

  • Sesame Street has a whole page devoted to exactly what I’m talking about here! They have downloads and videos, including one with the First Lady, aimed helping kids establish easy and fun health regimens to keep them going strong.
  • Free Food and Nutrition Printables – Kids, parents, and teachers can enjoy free printables for kids from Nourish Interactive- The Fun Way to Learn About Nutrition!  Just ‘click to print’ educational and fun activity worksheets: matching, crossword puzzles, word searches, family nutrition tip sheets, kids coloring printables, and more.
  • KidsHealth is the #1 most-visited website for children’s health and development. They break it down, with info-packed tabs for “parents,” “kids” and “teens.”

Enjoy the jumps! Come back and see us when you can …
