Master Meal Time — Parents: You’ve Got This

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Focus on your health TAGSFlorida Hospital – ApopkaFocus on your health Previous articleFAIRWINDS Credit Union launches the FAIRWINDS FoundationNext articleRep. Murphy: Changing How Feds Fund English-Language Programs Will Help Florida Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR From Florida Hospital ApopkaThe StruggleMorning, noon and night there is a silent struggle in most American homes: meal time.This struggle is one met with sighs, whines, cries and oh so many tears over the basic human function of eating.Parents, we get it.But we’re also here to remind you that anything worth doing is usually met with great fortitude. And enduring the valiant effort to ensure that your children get proper nutrition is, perhaps, one of the most important things you can do.Children’s nutrition not only influences their growth, development, school performance, emotional health and peer relationships — it also predicts their future health outcomes.The Reason“A child with optimal nutrition will have a greater likelihood of being a healthier kid and a healthier adult with dietary habits and skills across the lifespan that exponentially promote wellness, disease prevention and longevity,” says Christopher Schnell, RD, LD/N., a pediatric registered dietitian specialist at the Center for Child & Family Wellness, Florida Hospital for Children’s Healthy Weight and Wellness Program.Maintaining a healthy weight can prevent a host of problems during childhood and beyond, as childhood obesity has been shown to increase the risk of asthma, type 2 diabetes, bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and risk factors for heart disease. In addition, childhood obesity takes an emotional toll, with obese children at high risk for social isolation, depression and lower self-esteem.Even more, children with obesity have a greater chance of carrying the disease into adulthood, which is further linked to serious conditions and diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and several types of cancer (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).That said, we know you need help fighting the good fight.What You Can DoHere are Schnell’s tips to master meal time for your child’s health. You’ve got this.1. Eat a Variety of “Whole Foods”“The bulk of a child’s diet should include a wide variety of whole, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins (chicken, turkey or fish), low-fat or nonfat dairy (or dairy alternatives), whole grains and limited portions of healthy fats (such as olive oil),” explains Schnell.Encourage your kids to eat fresh foods or the healthiest packaged fruits and vegetables that offer the most essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Canned, frozen or packaged fruits and vegetables can also hold a lot of nutrients; however, it’s important to look for those packed in water and with no salt or sugar added.Schnell shares the USDA’s daily nutritional guidelines from Myplate.gov for children ages 2 to 18, but it’s recommended to always discuss your child’s specific nutritional needs with his or her pediatrician or dietitian if you have specific questions and concerns.Fruit: 1-2 cupsVegetables: 1-3 cupsLean Protein: 2-6 ouncesGrains: 3-8 ounces (at least half coming from whole grains)Dairy: 2-3 cups (low-fat or nonfat)Healthier Fats: 3-6 teaspoons (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat sources like olive oil, sunflower, canola, etc.)2. Read Food Labels“Check the main ingredients and read the nutrition labels of the foods that your children are eating, paying particular attention to sugar and sodium content,” advises Schnell.He recommends staying away from ingredients that indicate trans fats, which commonly pop up in processed foods as partially hydrogenated oils. He also suggests keeping the sugar content to less than 10 grams per serving for foods with added sugars, and watching that sodium content per day does not exceed 2,300 milligrams, as general rules of thumb.Unfortunately, the American Heart Association reports that the average child between the ages 2-19 eats more than 3,100 mg sodium per day, with grocery store and restaurant foods making up 83 percent of the sodium that children consume. This leads us to the next tip.3. Plan and Prepare More Meals at HomeSchnell explains, “Preparing meals at home helps you to control more of the ingredients in your kids’ meals, and encourages more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains.”He suggests involving your children in your meal planning and prep, and starting small. If you are finding yourself in drive-through lines for fast food meals every night of the week, make a commitment to cook at home just one night and then increase to more from there. It’s also helpful to begin with simple, easy to follow recipes that are built around a lean protein and fresh veggies, with breads and gains added as a side and fruit for dessert.Part of the planning process also involves grocery shopping. “I advise families to make only one weekly shopping trip, which motivates them to map out their meals in advance and stick to their game plan — This reduces the opportunity to splurge on the “extras” throughout the week,” adds Schnell.4. Be MindfulTeaching your kids to be mindful (or more present) while eating can go a long way. Sitting down at the dinner table as a family can eliminate distractions and put the focus back on the healthy foods on the table. It’s also important to turn off the TV, tablets and phones while eating. Research shows that when electronics are turned off, people tend to consumer smaller portions, have lower BMI’s and even have stronger family relationships.“If kids learn to be more mindful when they eat, they may develop a healthier relationship with and appreciation for food — with a better understanding of what they are eating, why they are eating it, and how much they are eating,” notes Schnell.This practice of eating together as a family also encourages conversation and bonding; it’s a more positive way to eat for mind, body and spirit.5. Don’t Skip Meals“Many kids, especially teens, tend to skip meals, which often causes them to binge eat unhealthier convenience foods when they feel extremely hungry,” says Schnell.It also may create an opportunity for nutritional deficiencies. One study demonstrated that kids that missed lunches had more deficiencies in vitamins A, D, E, and K, in addition to several essential minerals. This study, published in April 2016 in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition Dietetics, showed that seven to 20 percent of children and adolescents in the United States skip lunch on a given day, with adolescents skipping this meal the most.Encouraging your kids to pack enough nutritious foods to get them through their day and to eat all their meals along with healthy snacks can help them sustain adequate nutrition, blood sugar, energy levels, and a healthy weight over time.6. Ask for HelpSometimes, parents are at a loss. And, that’s OK. But the important thing to do is seek help if you are concerned about your child’s nutrition, weight, growth or development.“The Florida Hospital for Children’s Healthy Weight and Wellness Program at the Center for Child & Family Wellness provides a multidisciplinary approach with clinical, dietary, exercise and wellness services for children usually age five and older who have been diagnosed as obese or overweight and referred to us by their pediatricians,” Schnell explains.While he and his team passionately work to help children successfully regain and maintain a healthy weight, he comments that the greatest impact to reducing childhood overweight and obesity will come from parents who help their children prevent weight issues from the very beginning.Schnell advises, “Even if your child’s weight is healthy, it’s important to talk to your child’s health care providers about their nutrition and know his/her BMI [Body Mass Index] percentile— Monitoring this important number will gauge markers for overweight or obesity so you can identify life or health changes that could be influencing your child’s weight and address them early.”He further explains that for children, BMI is calculated as a percentile, which factors in where your child is on the growth chart for height and weight compared to other children of the same age and sex. Where in adults a BMI over 30 is considered clinically obese, for children, a BMI at or above the 85th percentile and below the 95th percentile indicates overweight, and a BMI at or above the 95th percentile, obese.And as the U.S. continues to battle this burden with one in three kids and teens qualifying as overweight or obese, it has never been more important to take the reins by fighting for your child’s nutrition with healthy meal and lifestyle choices.So, parents, keep forging on.The meal time battle will be courageously won as you use these tips (and a lot of patience) to arm your little ones with the food and fuel to build strong, healthy bodies for lifelong health.

Skyline House / Jesus Aparicio Architecture Studio

first_img “COPY” CopySave this picture!SectionOnly after deciding where to build a house, you can be aware of the importance of it.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe house is located in a quiet place with enough distance to the city. The distance makes this home fulfills the conditions of villa on the city of Salamanca and Madrid.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe place where the house is located is the top of a hill, from the northern slope that falls on the south side to the Castilian plateau, in a flat and infinity landscape.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe topography and orientation construct a very important part of the architecture space, hence the importance of the choice of the place. Its access from the nearest road leads through a rocky road of slow and difficult traffic, which winds through a forest of oaks. Also, when you get to the top of the hill there is a rocky area on the north side.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe project aims to highlight these spaces in order to make them habitable in a house overlooking the distant horizon.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe house, therefore, has two scales: a small and fragmented in its north, east and west where the oak forest surrounds it. The other scale is absolute great in the presence of its southern front, open to the infinite horizon of the plateau.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe access to the house is via a platform that connects the private areas of the home and the surrounding countryside. In addition, it connects the nearby forest of oaks with the distant plateau. Therefore, the platform tries to establish a second level, which has the function of a threshold. Consistently with the ambivalent position of the platform, the natural and artificial elements are overlapped: trees, water and rocks interspersed with the concrete podium. Another feature of this house is the connection of the areas by controlling the ineffable nature, the predictable artifice and abstract architecture.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe house has a double construction: some perennial parts are built to last in a building which has a primitive implementation and structure (concrete and stone) of a more ephemeral and technical character (where the materials are glass, tile, steel and wood) built to change in times, that responds specifically to the function and facilities.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe house has a longitudinal development and its perpendicular to the horizon, its vertical structure is of bearing walls of cyclopean concrete, except for the south prow. Furthermore, this structure supports a slab of 10.50 x 43 m. of reinforced concrete. We have also tried the slab belongs to the place and has a lasting nature. To this end we have used the rock of the excavation in order to prepare the cyclopean concrete.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe result of the construction is of a solid lower part, close to the ground. The rough texture of the vertical walls, which nature does recognize as their own, by making it easier for lichens, mosses and plants nest in the place. These vertical walls are containers of land: the places full of gravel extracted from a quarry, construct a new terrain and makes the house has a connection with nature and with the distant southern horizon. This new ground supports the roof slab, which is a covering of snow and rain which builds the necessary shade for the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jesús Aparicio Estudio de ArquitecturaA limit is not what borders something, but rather is where things start to have a presence. In the architectural space of the house it can be established a relation between the boundary and the continuity of space and edge, and discontinuity of the same. The house still remains as a place where nature is controlled; especially is the place where the horizon begins its presence: the house of the horizon / skyline house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jesús Aparicio Estudio de ArquitecturaProject gallerySee allShow less”Ruins of Modernity: The Failure of Revolutionary Architecture in the 20th Century”ArticlesW12 – Real Time Control Building #3 Proposal / gh3Articles Share Houses Spain Projects Skyline House / Jesus Aparicio Architecture StudioSave this projectSaveSkyline House / Jesus Aparicio Architecture StudioSave this picture!© Roland HalbeHouses•Salamanca, Spain “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/309607/skyline-house-jesus-aparicio-architecture-studio Clipboard Architects: Jesus Aparicio Architecture Studio Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs :  Roland Halbe, Cortesia de Jesús Aparicio Estudio de ArquitecturaPhotographs:  Roland Halbe+ 21 Share Year:  Photographs 2006 Skyline House / Jesus Aparicio Architecture Studio Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/309607/skyline-house-jesus-aparicio-architecture-studio Clipboard ArchDaily 2006 CopyAbout this officeJesús Aparicio Estudio de ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSalamancaSpainPublished on December 25, 2012Cite: “Skyline House / Jesus Aparicio Architecture Studio” [Casa Del Horizonte / Jesús Aparicio Estudio de Arquitectura] 25 Dec 2012.

Located in front of the Pacific Coast and immersed in the landscape of La Barra de Colotepec, in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, and designed by the Mexican architect Alberto Kalach, Sforza House develops from the idea of being aware of the environment, the contemplation and respect for the environment that is described as a “(…) place on the Oaxacan coast –where the delta of the Colotepec river converges with the sea– the sabines, the mangroves, the tulles and the oaks embrace this exuberant refuge to privilege a reunion with the essential and natural beauty without artifice. “Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovSave this picture!© Alex KrotkovThe building consists of three volumes that connect with a corridor where a thin concave line passes. It guides the visitor towards a moon of turquoise water that descends four steps. These volumes are made up of ten vaults that face the Pacific Ocean, granting spectacular sunsets in reddish tones and facilitating double or triple heights as well as correct air circulation, the coast of Oaxaca being a site with a tropical climate where the annual average oscillates 20ºC.Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovBoth interior and exterior spaces are designed integrally following the general concept and earthy tones where the partitions and coatings made in the region seem to be created from the coastal sand. On the other hand, concrete and wooden beams intersect the volumes to play with the different heights that allow interesting moments of contemplation at different levels, in different atmospheres generated by the temperature of the site, the solar path, and the visual and acoustic experience of the movement of the waves.Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovSave this picture!© Alex KrotkovSave this picture!© Alex KrotkovA custom-made wooden gate is applied to each archway with small blinds that provide privacy without completely obscuring the view of the landscape, and that also allows air circulation to create a more pleasant climate inside each of the eleven rooms, divided into junior, senior, and master. Fixed furniture such as sinks and bathtubs give the impression of having been carved on-site, as if the building, in general, was a stone found in situ and sculpted to be inhabited.Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovSave this picture!© Alex KrotkovOn the other hand, as entrepreneur Ezequiel Ayarza Sforza, owner of Sforza Hose, points out: “The interior environments are made up of pieces from regions recognized for their artisan crafts, such as rugs from Teotitlán del Valle, textiles from the Oaxaca Valley, hammocks, chairs and curtains from Yucatán and palm lamps from Veracruz, which are combined with decorative elements and amenities from the Oaxacan mountains, where they are made by potters, cabinetmakers, farmers, and beekeepers, in the Pueblo del Sol workshops – a project of sustainable production, where the continuity is possible thanks to the contributions and support of Casona Sforza.”Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovSave this picture!© Alex KrotkovBeing this a project designed in an integral way, an emphasis is placed on the gastronomy of the site which acquires an important role reflecting an ecological and social responsibility. This is why Sforza House is committed to a culinary proposal based on the farm-to-table principle, guaranteeing the freshness of the ingredients of each dish, which come from the orchards of local producers that respect the seasonal and non-intensive harvest cycles.Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovSave this picture!© Alex KrotkovFor more information visit Casa Sforza.Save this picture!© Alex KrotkovProject gallerySee allShow lessNomadland: Journey of a Modern-Day Nomad across the Landscape of the American WestArticlesThe Belgian Pavilion at the 2021 Venice Biennale, Curated by Dirk Somers, Explores t…Architecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960772/sforza-house-taller-de-arquitectura-x-alberto-kalach Clipboard “COPY” Photographs Projects CopyAbout this officeTaller de Arquitectura X / Alberto KalachOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsHospitality ArchitectureHotelsResidential ArchitectureHousesOaxacaAlberto KalachPuerto EscondidoOn FacebookMexicoPublished on April 28, 2021Cite: “Sforza House / Taller de Arquitectura X / Alberto Kalach” [Casona Sforza / Taller de Arquitectura X / Alberto Kalach] 28 Apr 2021.

Macy’s workers vote to strike

first_imgWorkers in service jobs continue to rise up as 5,000 union members at New York-area Macy’s department stores voted unanimously to go on strike on June 15 when their contract extension expires. The main issues are health care, pay and work schedules. The workers are represented by Local 1-S of the Department Store Union.Local 1-S held a spirited rally here on June 2 at the company’s historic Herald Square store. That’s the site of the perennial Christmas fantasy, “Miracle on 34th Street.”But these workers weren’t asking for a miracle. Instead, the local’s informal band blared out Aretha Franklin’s anthem, demanding: “R-E-S-P-E-C-T!” They handed out fliers explaining: “Macy’s has been making demands that would limit workers’ pay and weaken benefits. It’s time to stand up to corporate greed. … They shouldn’t take from the workers who make this company run.” (1srwdsu.org)Workers at the rally revealed that pay starts at $9 an hour, while the bosses are now trying to block new city and state laws raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. The company offers new workers fewer benefits, such as sick time, and tries to keep most workers part time. One worker told this reporter that the company has made working on holidays ­mandatory.Supporters at the rally included members of the Laundry Workers Center and Make the Road, as well as members of the Communications Workers and International Electrical Workers unions, recently victorious in their struggle against corporate giant Verizon.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
