The natural supplements in the shapes of popular Treehouse TV characters Franklin and Friends and Max and Ruby are loved by kids not only because of its shape, but because of the taste. Studies show that it is difficult to meet 100% daily requirements of essential nutrients, so taking vitamin supplements helps with energy metabolism and prevents dietary deficiencies.

Lipikar For Sensitive Skin

I have been using Lipikar Baume AP for my son for a while now, ever since his doctor recommended us to use it. This cream has prevented him from getting rashes due to dryness in the air both in winter and summer.

Talking About Body Changes and Being There For Our Daughters

Puberty is a time period that is full of emotions for both girls and boys. This is the time when the body changes drastically and coping with it is different for everyone, but being aware about the changes and learning to cope with it is important. Having healthy conversations with our children and keeping resources that we agree with, are important so our children don't feel lost or embarrassed. This is also the time when a child's self-esteem can get hurt, as a parent we need to have the proper resources and be there for them.

“My Healthy™” Shifts the Conversation about Weight Loss from Just Pounds Lost to Health Gained

My Healthy™ is an interactive and motivational campaign that shifts the focus of the obesity conversation away from just pounds lost to health gained. Almost 70 percent of Americans are affected by obesity or overweight. The cornerstone of the campaign is the My Healthy™ Promise, a commitment to set realistic goals and recognize that for those who are affected by obesity, every positive step counts. Making small, positive steps, like making the My Healthy™ Promise, eating a healthy meal, making healthy food choices, taking a walk, being more active or having a productive conversation with their doctor about weight and health will help.
