Tips to successful parenting

Tips to successful parenting
It is important that we bring up our children in a way that gives them a sense of responsibility, builds their self-esteem and makes them feel loved. With nuclear families becoming the norm, parenting is getting to be more trying. Here are some tips to bring up healthy happy children.
Tips to successful parenting
1.       Talk with and listen to your child: In today’s busy lives, we are often thinking about the next thing that we have to do, instead of giving 100 percent attention to what our child is saying to us. We often pretend to listen, or even ignore our child’s attempts to communicate with us. Your child’s self-esteem is greatly influenced by the quality of time you spend with him/her, not the quantity of time. It is important to make eye contact and use gentle touch when communicating with your child and be sure to share smiles and hugs
2.       Be your child’s first source of information: Encouraging your children by asking questions makes it easier for them to ask questions as well. By answering your child’s 1questions with honesty, you can create a relationship of mutual trust and respect that can prevent your child from developing unsafe habits.
3.       Understand your child’s needs: The real expert is yourself when in the case your child’s needs. You should know your child’s development – social, intellectual, physical, emotional and moral – and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Tuitions and counseling should not be considered as taboo.
4.       Cherish your child’s individuality: Encourage your kid’s talents and interests. Spend as much as time alone with your kid’s every day. Approve your kid’s differences and avoid comparing them or asking why you are not like someone else. Comparisons do not always encourage competitive spirit, as wrongly assumed by many.
5.       Appreciate the value of play: Play is crucial to all aspects of a kid’s development, but is often overlooked as a valuable tool. Play can obstruct discipline problems, offer a natural way for children to learn, and is extremely important in the formation of a positive relationship between parent and child. The best of learning and the best of bonding happen during play.
6.       Separate the deed from the doer: Never tell your children that they are bad. That lowers their self-esteem. Help your child understand that it isn’t that you don’t like him/her. But it is their behavior that you are unwilling to accept. In order for a child to have healthy self-esteem, he/she must know that they are loved unconditionally no matter what they do. Never try to motivate your child by withdrawing your love from him/her.
7.       Teach your child right from wrong: A child understands of right and wrong develops slowly, from within.  Teach your children the code of moral conduct and lay the groundwork for them to develop their own moral guide. This is best done by narrating exemplary stories, and not by sermonizing.
8.       Use logical consequences for discipline:  A consequence for the child must be logically related to the behavior in order for it to work. For example, if your child draws up a huge phone bill and you ground him/her for a week, that punishment will only create resentment within your children. However, if you deduct the amount from his/her pocket money, then your child can see the logic behind your discipline.
9.       Encourage all-round development: Provide healthy meals and snacks and model good habits. Give confidence exercise by being active with your child and limiting time in front of the television. Support your child’s efforts in school and provide opportunities to learn and explore by visiting the library, museums and other places of interest. Participate actively in your child’s holiday homework, encouraging all the practical activities.
10.   Set yourself as a role model: Model and teach good safety habits and establish routines. Discuss and enforce rules that work for your family – for example, putting away toys after play, keeping the books decently, etc.
11.   Make time for family activities: A sense of belonging is enhanced when families take to engage in common activities such as having meals together and sharing tasks and responsibilities. Use family time to discuss needs and feelings, and to solve problems. Going for regular family holidays goes a long way in promoting bonding.

Nutritional Aspects of Stored breast Milk

Nutritional Aspects of Stored breast Milk

Breast-feeding we know is the simplest and assured means of clean, warm and bacteria-free milk for a newborn or a growing infant, besides the emotional and psychological benefits it has for the mother and child. The composition of human breast milk is also ideally suited for the requirements of human life at the tender newborn age.

Mother’s milk is the best food for a baby and mothers should be encouraged to breastfeed completely and as long as possible. Working mothers, or mothers who are separated from the newborns or infants for varying hours or days, can express their milk and assure their babies of an unbroken supply or availability of breast milk. The point is for mothers to know the right and hygienic way of expressing and storing breast milk.

Many mothers are able to express 400 – 500 ml of milk even just after a round of breast-feeding. The cup of the expressed breast milk (EBM) must be covered and left in a cool place. EBM keeps well for up to 10 hours without refrigeration. EBM can be source of infection if it is not collected, stored and administered safely.

How to Handle, store and Use EBM?

  • 1 Freshly expressed breast milk should be used or refrigerated within 4 hours.
  • 2 Frozen EBM may be kept for not more than 3 to 4 months. Once thawed, EBM should be used within 24 hours.
  • 3 Milk should be stored/frozen in quantities appropriate for the infant’s age (30-60 ml for newborns and larger quantities for infants) to minimize waste and for easier thawing.
  • 4EBM can be kept in deep freeze, for up to 6 months.
  • 5Thaw frozen EBM by placing it in the refrigerator the previous night.
  • 6 If required immediately, frozen EBM may be thawed by placing the container in warm water until the required volume has thawed. The warmed milk is to be used within an hour.
  • 7Thawed EBM must never be frozen or reheated.
  • 8 Microwaves are not to be used to thaw or heat EBM, as it may heat the EBM unevenly.
  • 9 Milk that has separated into layers should be rotated gently to recombine it.
  • 1 Never thaw frozen EBM at room temperature.

Quality Facts Of EBM

Storing EBM for a long duration causes loss of Vitamin C. also, bactericidal properties of EMB reduce when stored form more than two days. Freezing destroys the substances in EMB that fight infection. Thawed EMB may have different color, odour and consistency as compared to fresh breast milk but it is still safe to be fed to the baby.

Breast milk has important health benefits. When handled property, expressed breast milk serves well the needs of an infant and the post-natal work-life balance of a woman.

Gynecological Aspects

Apart from the obvious nutritional benefits to the infant, breastfeeding provides a unique bonding opportunity breastfeed their children have lesser chances of contracting breast cancer than those who don’t. However, if the mother is undergoing treatment for some condition that requires potent medication, then breastfeeding should be avoided. Routine medication does not require cessation of breastfeeding. It is always best to heed your doctor’s advice regarding breastfeeding while on medication.

A common myth associated with breastfeeding is that lactating helps in losing pregnancy weight. This leads some women to indulge in high calorie food post-delivery. While lactation does require a certain amount of extra nutrition, it should not be an excuse to gorge on sweets, ghee or fatty foods a maximum of extra 600 calories in the form of nutritious healthy food is enough to supplement milk production. 

 Working mothers, who pump out breast milk, do miss out on the mother-child bonding factor. But, most of these women have no choice and breast milk in any form, bottled or directly from source, is more beneficial to the child in any case.

To point at the other side of the case, prolonged breastfeeding can lead to calcium depletion. Osteoporosis has been observed in women who have breastfed several children for long periods of time. Normally, babies should be weaned when they are at the end of the first year and completely weaned at one and a half year of age.

Diet to beat fatigue

Diet to beat fatigue
Fatigue is nothing but mental or physical exhaustion. Tiredness, lethargy, sleepiness and lack of energy are some typical terms to describe Fatigue. Fatigue may refer to either the body (Physical tiredness) or mind (Psychological tiredness).
Diet to beat fatigue

If you are responsible about your health, it won’t surprise you to know that when the body has/gets all the nutrition it needs, the likelihood of you experiencing fatigue or tiredness of mind and body is less. In other words, you stand a better chance when dealing with stress and illness when you have cared enough to act against things that cause fatigue. Don’t belong to this good category? Here is help to find your way.

Breakfast is Important
Morning Tiffin is important because it refills energy reserves and sets the tone for your day. A good breakfast refills our energy stores and keeps lethargy at bay. Choose a carbohydrate rich breakfast such as cereals or wholegrain bread as the brain relies on glucose for fuel.
A Combination of Proteins and Carbohydrates at Lunch
You eat carbohydrates and proteins in tandem at lunch time to fight the afternoon doldrums. Protein-rich foods also contain a precursor to neurotransmitters, which promote alertness and attention.

Drink Plenty of Water
A dehydrated body functions less efficiently. Dehydration can lessen blood flow to organs, thereby slowing down your brain. Drink about 8 glasses of water every day and don’t wait to drink water until you feel thirsty.
No Fasts No Feasts
Consume enough calories avoiding big meals. Nutrient needs vary depending on your age, gender, weight and activity. Do not skip meals, as it will dip your blood sugar levels. Crash diets too do not contain adequate carbohydrates to meet your energy needs. They also leave your body deprived of nutrients like vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
Iron rich foods to beat fatigue

Eat Iron Rich foods
Iron enables blood to carry oxygen to various organs of your body. Lack of iron also leads to fatigue. Even in the s absence of anemia, low iron levels can cause fatigue and depression.

Be Careful with Caffeine
One o r two rounds of caffeinated drinks (like coffee/tea/cola) each day will boost your energy levels and mental alertness. But if you are a heavy caffeine user (consuming more than six drinks per day), you will be prone to anxiety, irritability and reduces performance.
Vitamin C
The antioxidant reduces oxidative stress, which is the result of too many free radicals in the body. It is another contributor to chronic fatigue syndrome.
If you feel lethargic or fatigued after eating, then what you have consumed is the wrong food. The trick is to choose foods that release energy slowly and give you a gradual and long-lasting boost of energy.

 No Holiday for Indulgence
Chocolate boxes are out of fashion. It’s time for chocolate wraps. Talking about Spa therapy!! Holiday season means lack of sleep because of too much socializing. If you do not want to go out for a one-time experience, gift an exotic tea/ coffee hamper and beanbag chair.
Then you can spend memorable leisure times together.
If your man has never been able to justify spending his own money on a high-end shaving cream, this is the perfect time to get one for him.

Just for You
A little thought can take you a long way. Be it your partner or your friends, think about what they like and you could personalize it on jewellery, T-shirts, bags and more. Don’t just stop at their names. It could be their favorite quotes, some cartoons, characters or dialogues from movies or inspiring lines from a book.
Digital photo frames with your pictures in it, or a scrapbook with snaps and messages from the entire family and gang will rekindle the good memories from the past.

A Guy Thing
Men always appreciate gadgets and Gizmos. Whether it’s an upgrade in their existing technology in computer or car, new games for the younger ones, or classic motorcycle jacket, boots and leather knapsack for the adventure travelers. If you can swing it, surely the junkies won’t mind.
A Treat for Two
Festivals are the time to forget lovers’ its time for him/her. After all, love is all we need. overlooking the sea, be a part of barbeque dinner, live music, moonlit nights followed by New Year celebrations there.
This is a gift, which is also time spent together, and New Year party included a three in one for sure.

Get the Green Fix Chocaholic
Create pillows from the T-shirts you were about to throw. Use your creativity and give it a new touch. Source that erotic plant for your garden. (Sure think about its survival in your climate). You could even exchange organic products and garments.
Buying gifts that in some way contribute to the planet will truly bring you joy to the world.

A Good Story Book
Whether it is the complete Calvin and Hobbes collection for your children or The Last Lecture for the elders, books always make for classic gifts.
Just make sure they are hand curated picks and not one of those ‘How to’ series, because it means the person at the receiving end is depressed or needs to lose some weight.
For a cinema buff, DVDs are also an effective gift. If he/she missed it in the theaters and television and gets it as a gift, she will be your slave for a lifetime. Happy Giving!!!!

Fruits: Really a Nutritious Snack or Unhealthy Sugar Source?

Fruits: Really a Nutritious Snack or Unhealthy Sugar Source?
Myth 1`: Fruits make you gain weight because of the sugar content.
Avocadoes, tomatoes and berries are not fruits. Fruits have a low nutrient content and are not worth consuming Diabetics shouldn’t eat fruits. It’s important to get the fruits you like, no matter where they come from.
Fruits can easily replace breakfast, and even one of the other meals. Because of the high content of both soluble and insoluble fibre, which can be filling, it’s actually easy to consume less calories and get loads of essential nutrients that give you energy and strength. Furthermore, the sugar found in fruits is very different from white sugar and, in fact, most fruits have a low glycemic index, which means they’re even safe for diabetics (in moderation).

To sum up: Fruits are low in calories, have no unhealthy fats and are rich in nutrients.

Myth 2: Fruits make you lose weight and skinny people become even skinnier.

This is related to the third myth.
Myth 3: Fruits have no nutrient content and are not worth consuming
  • Eating different coloured seasonal fruits is actually a great way to get the maximum amount of nutrients. Think of ‘a rainbow of colours’ which applies to both fruits and berries. Those colours are not just pretty, but are actually an indication of the many phytonutrients found in them, which give them those colours.
  • Fruits and berries are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients that are not found in other foods. Therefore, fruits ensure the much needed nutrients and help in maintaining ideal body weight.
  • They also have high amount of water content and are loaded with both soluble and insoluble fibre, which is important in assisting the body in cleansing itself of the waste or toxins, on a daily basis. Fibre also helps to normalize cholesterol levels naturally.
  • Fruits and berries are excellent in preventing and even reversing heart disease, cancer, digestive tract problems, inflammation and other health challenges.
  • Fruits also taste great and are satisfying; hence, reason enough to eat them!
  • Fruits are alkali-forming foods, which is very good for health.
To sum up: Some reasons why fruits are great for our health - to increase longevity, to prevent diseases, to raise immunity, loaded with vital nutrients, Vitamins C and E, along with a large number of very important micro nutrients.
Myth 4: Avocadoes, tomatoes and berries are not fruits
There are many members of the fruit family that people never think of as fruits. Some examples are berries (which is a type of fruit), avocadoes, tomatoes and even cucumbers, which usually thought of as vegetables, are part of the fruit family. So are most nuts – they’re a type of fruit too, with the skin removed.

Myth 5: Fruits have no protein.
In actuality, fruits contain proteins; on an average about 6 per cent of their calories is protein.

 Myth 6: Diabetes shouldn’t eat fruits.

Most fruits actually have a low glycemic index, and are therefore safe to be consumed by diabetics, but in moderation. Diabetics who are on a low-fat and high-fiber diet can have even more fruits.

Myth 7: It’s important to get the fruits you like, no matter where they come from.
Try to maximize the amount of locally available fresh seasonal fruits. The calories will be the same as imported ones, but the nutrient value will be very different, because a lot of nutrients are lost during the transportation process. Furthermore, processed or canned fruits and fruit juices, even though convenient in many cases, offer very little nutrition and often have lots of sugar added to them
