Weekly Health Update: Studies show that children who eat breakfast tend to be healthier and perform better in school than those who skip what's considered to be the most important meal of the day. The U.S. FDA offers these suggestions for choosing a good breakfast for your child: offer healthy foods that your child enjoys; include peanut butter or almond butter for an excellent source of protein; if your child prefers sugary cereals, mix the sugary offering with a more nutritious option; if your child is especially active or is going through a growth spurt, they may require more calories, notably at breakfast; offer healthy choices, even when everyone's on the run, such as fresh fruit or a bag of trail mix; always read nutritional labels; and opt for unprocessed foods as much as possible.
How healthy is your child eating?

Weekly Health Update: Mac & Cheese Products Contain High Levels of Harmful Chemicals. Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl, which can get into food from packaging and equipment used in manufacturing. Past research has linked these chemicals to birth defects in boys and learning and behavior problems in older children. According to a new report, investigators tested cheese products and found that all ten varieties of macaroni and cheese they examined had high levels of phthalates, even those marketed as organic.
Processed foods (those from a box, bag, or a can) contain ingredients that can be very harmful to your health. Always Eat Clean and Fresh Foods!

Weekly Health Update: Drinking Coffee and Tea May Prevent Liver Disease.
Chronic liver disease is a leading cause of death in the United States, with nearly 32,000 people dying from it each year. Now, a new study suggests that a cup of coffee or tea a day may help prevent this disease. In the study, 2,424 participants underwent a full physical checkup, which included measurements such as body mass index, height, blood tests, and abdominal scans. The data revealed that frequent coffee and herbal tea consumption consistently correlated with a significantly lower risk of liver stiffness, which suggests regular coffee or tea intake may prevent liver fibrosis before the signs of liver disease start to appear.

Weekly Health Update: The Mediterranean diet may preserve brain health among older adults. Investigators collected dietary information and performed brain scans on almost 1,000 people around the age of 70. They found that those who followed the dietary habits common in Mediterranean countries—such as eating a lot of fruits, vegetables, olive oil, and beans—retained more brain volume into old age than those who did not. The researchers suspect that the combination of foods may protect against factors such as inflammation and vascular disease, which can cause brain shrinkage.

Weekly Health Update: Too Much Salt in US Kids' Diet. A majority of kids in the United States consume more than the recommended amount of salt for their age. Research on more than 2,100 children aged 6 to 18 and found their average salt intake was 3,256 milligrams (mg) a day. Currently, the recommended salt intake for children varies from 1,900 mg to 2,300 mg a day, depending on age. The researchers add that nearly half of kids' salt intake came from the following ten foods: pizza, Mexican mixed dishes, sandwiches (including burgers), breads, cold cuts, soups, savory snacks, cheese, plain milk, and poultry. They note the best way to reduce salt intake is to feed your Kids a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables without added sodium or sauces and to choose no-salt-added or lower-sodium versions of packaged foods.
How is your salt intake? If you are a chronic salt adder at the dinner table, try swapping out your table salt for potassium flakes (a salt substitute). Similar taste without the actual salt.

Weekly Health Update: Exercising While Pregnant Beneficial for Offspring.
Exercise during pregnancy appears to protect offspring from age-related health risks. Researchers examined markers of oxidative stress, inflammation, and insulin sensitivity in mice that were born to mothers that either exercised or didn’t exercise during pregnancy. They found that the offspring of mothers that exercised had better stress resistance and improved insulin sensitivity, even into adulthood, than the mice born to sedentary mothers. The researchers write, "Our findings highlight pregnancy as a sensitive period when positive lifestyle interventions could have significant and long-lasting beneficial effects on offspring metabolism and disease risk."
Pregnant or not, Have you exercised today?
