How To Help Your Obese Child?

6:17 PM

(0) Comments

If your child is obese, I can understand your worry. Obesity has been linked to many health problems and deadly diseases. If your child is obese, he or she runs an increased risk of developing:
  • Type II diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Heart disease or stroke
  • Cancer
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Gout
  • High blood pressure

Everyone is different, and that includes children. With 2 identical looking kids, one may be obese and the other may be healthy. There are many genetic and body frame factors to consider. But basically, obesity is defined as a condition where someone is "grossly fat or overweight" depending on their Body Mass Index (BMI).

This book is worth your investment. It has valuable information that will help you to combat childhood obesity. It has methods and guidelines that are effective if implemented.


What is BMI?


To understand whether your child is obese, you need to determine her BMI score. BMI calculation does not measure body fat directly, but rather uses global averages to see where your child ranks against her peers that are the same age, height and weight.

Body mass index is defined as a measurement of normal weight, overweight and obesity using comparative height and weight charts.

How Can I Measure My Child's BMI to Determine If He Is Obese?


Search for the term "Childhood BMI Calculator" on the Internet. There are literally thousands of free online body mass index calculators which produce an instant score. Simply input the birth date and year, gender, height and weight of your child. Some of these calculators may also ask for the height of your child's genetic parents.

Without parental height considered, a 10 year old girl that measures 4 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 70 pounds is considered in the 48th BMI percentile. That means that she is heavier than 48% of girls her age and height, a healthy measurement.

What BMI Percentile is Healthy, Overweight and Obese?


A child that scores between 0 and 5 or 10 on the BMI percentile chart for kids is considered underweight. Between 5 or 10 and 80 or 85 is considered a healthy weight. A score of 80 to 90 or 95 is considered overweight, and any score over 90 is a sign of a marginally or definitely obese child. Do not forget, these are just averages. If you are concerned your child is obese or overweight, schedule an appointment with your doctor or health professional.

What Do You Do If Your Child Is Obese?


Obesity can be hereditary, to some extent. If you and your spouse are obese, your kids have a higher tendency to be so as well. However, health professionals, fitness experts and doctors agree that your diet and level of physical activity are what ultimately decide how much you weigh and how fit you are.

So get your child eating lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Keep them active, exercising at least 2.5 hours per week. Make sure they drink lots of water and get plenty of rest. These simple steps can reverse obesity, delivering the self-esteem and health that every child deserves.

If you have concerns about your child's health, this book will open your eyes to how diet can change things for the better. Written in a way that is not only easy to understand but enjoyable. Many parents have found it to be a wonderful resource. It is not just about food and nutrition. It will help to improve health and also heal the mind and body of your child.

Digital Scrapbook Time

5:40 PM

(0) Comments

A few months back I purchased a coupon for a photobook. Well, it is expiring sooooon.
Oh no! I hardly started my scrapbook pages.
Anyway, I got some done last week. I have 40 pages to fill. I'm only like on page 8. Yikes!

Anyway, here's what I've accomplished so far with MyMemories Suite... which is the scrapbook program I'm using. You'll see some blank spaces and that's where my journaling is suppose to be. My coupon is with Photobook and so I import the pages I did on MyMemories Suite onto the Photobook program.










This photobook is for the year 2011. Yeah, I know, I'm 4 years late. That's why I'm glad I kept a family journal because there is no way I can remember what happened back then. I'm also glad for Facebook updates. I just go back to see what I wrote that year.

Our kids grow up quickly. This is one way to keep those precious memories. Record down those funny conversations, quirky behaviors, everyday moments and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

DISCOUNT CODE

Use this special code of mine to get $10 when you buy MyMemories Suite scrapbook software PLUS $10 store credit: STMMMS86598

-The MyMemories Version 6 requires a 64 bit computer.
-You can still purchase the MyMemories Version 5 is still available for 32 bit computers.

Exclusive NoQ Book Discount for My Readers

1:24 PM

(0) Comments

I was quite excited when I received an email from a representative of NoQ store.
NoQ Store is the e-commerce arm of Times Publishing, one of the most reputable names in printing, publishing, distribution and retail in the Asia Pacific.

They generously offered me a S$30 (approximately RM 75) coupon to shop at their store. In return, I'm writing this review for them.

They were also generous enough to offer a 15% discount exclusively for you, my blog readers. 

EXCLUSIVE 15% DISCOUNT:

Code: MAMASBAG
Valid from 11 August - 31 December 2014


My kids (especially my eldest daughter) were very excited. My daughter is always moaning "I have no more books to read". She is a true bookworm and tears through a book in a day, if not within hours. She knew exactly what book she wanted: To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. My second son was clamoring for Beast Quest books. Unfortunately, there were not that many Beast Quest books but he did find 2 that he hadn't read yet. For the younger kids, I was happy to see a good choice of Berenstain Bears books. All my kids loved that series. I settled on the one titled "Computer Trouble". How appropriate and just what I need for my kids.

Well, I was happy to learn that shipping is free. However, this perk is only for those residing in West Malaysia.For East Malaysian customers, shipping is free with minimum spend of RM 120.

Ordering the books was no hassle. The difficult part was trying to limit the number of books to fit my budget. Hahahah.


The books took 13 days to arrive. It was a little longer than we wished for but I believe some of the books had to be sourced, hence the delay. No matter, the kids were thrilled. My daughter is almost finished with her book and gives it a thumbs up. I'm sure she'll ask me to read it.

Well, thanks NoQ for the chance to try out your store. It looks like they offer good deals quite often. Just today I received a notification that there's a special discount for Malaysians in honor of Merdeka Day. Malaysian customers get 20% off on their orders but this treat is for ONE DAY ONLY - 30 August 2014. Use code MALND2014 at checkout.
