Did You Know?

Based on the number in our community of children failing due to negative influences, if the parents of the home gain understanding that an enriching and stimulating home environment fosters healthy growth in brain development within our children then this law will continue to change the future for success in school readiness!

In order for the state of Virginia law “No Child Left Behind” to become successful again the home must be impacted in a positive way.

If the Family unit of the home grow their mindset it will shift the dynamics and create healthier homes so the children within the family combined with their environment will have a chance to gain confidence, reset their minds to make better choices and open doors for successful opportunities that will allow mastering in new skills

Healthy Family Eating Tips:

Healthy eating is a great way to help decrease hunger, disease, and off balanced meals. 

  • Fruits and vegetables are good for you and also help to fill you up so you won’t feel hungry. If you fill up your plate with fruits and veggies, you probably won’t need vitamin pills, you’ll have fewer hunger pangs, and you will train your taste buds to crave fewer sweet and salty foods. 

  • Eat less “white” rice, pasta, and bread.  Choose whole grain products instead.  At least half of the grains your family eats each day should be whole grains-including whole wheat bread, whole grain pasta, and brown rice. 

  • Even if your family loves dessert, you can drastically reduce sugar consumption by switching to 100% juice, different flavored iced teas (it’s usually better for you to brew and sweeten them yourself), and water instead of sugary sodas, punch, or sports drinks.  Some coffee drinks that appeal to our sweet tooth have all the calories of a meal and none of the nutrients. 

  •  If overeating is a problem for your family, consider using smaller plates and bowls.  Family style eating-which  keeps extra food on the table for everyone to help themselves-is less work for parents but almost always results in everyone eating much more.  If you just serve everyone a single portion, they will eat less. Keep second helpings small and let kids know that if they want a second helping of meat or grains, they must have a second helping of the vegetables as well. 

  • If everyone in the family eats at regular times and snacks are available only when meals are far apart, you’ll be surprised by how that will affect everyone’s weight.  Regular mealtimes help people avoid overeating. Once you start eating, it’s hard to stop, so try to stick to only 3 meals and no more than one snack each day. And, it’s trite but true: starting the day with a nutritious breakfast is important for doing your best all day.
