Health foods – Should I Be Feeding them to my children?

More and more parents know what the inside of a health food store looks like. They know that Soya, wheat, seeds and other health foods are good for you. But can you give these so called “health foods” to your children as well? Furthermore, can you raise a vegetarian child? Yes you can with certain exceptions and precautions. A child that doesn’t get the proper amount of vitamins and minerals, along with a good amount of protein for healthy growth, is considered malnourished which is extremely unhealthy to a child’s development and possibly deadly. So if you plan to raise a child vegetarian, do your research first!!

The Food You Eat and How it Affects Your Sleep

The most common sleep disorders that people experience range from occasional sleepless nights to situations of ongoing insomnia. Changing your diet is one method that healthcare professionals recommend as a way of dealing with sleeping disorders, because the foods that people eat directly reflects on how well they sleep.

It is hence imperative that some foods should be eliminated from the regular diet while adding certain diets that aid in peaceful sleep.
