It’s widely known how important it is to start instilling good eating habits in kids at a young age. Once unhealthy foods are introduced, it can lead to an uphill battle to remove them from kids’ diets. Eventually, they may find their way into your child’s diet—that much is true.

Read on for the food and drink choices that your child should avoid or at least limit.

Football season is back, and it’s time to party! With a season that’s sure to be filled with challenges and epic plays, there’s nothing greater to look forward to for football fans. Kansas City’s season win has put the Chiefs at the top of the game, and with the help of quarterback Andy Dalton, the Cincinnati Bengals are top contenders. The San Francisco 49ers’ talent got them close last year, and the almost-reachable victory has likely given them the push they need to take it all the way. Tom Brady, along with plenty of young talent, will undoubtedly provide a superior New England Patriots’ performance. No matter who takes it, we’re in for an intense season.
Handwritten notes and cards sent via snail mail are great ways to thank people, celebrate milestones and holidays, or simply show someone you’re thinking of them. It’s not always easy, though, to find time to head to the store, pick out a card, and drop it in the mail. Now that so many folks keep their address books in an electronic format, e-cards are a happy alternative and a quick, easy solution. With all the great e-card sites on the web, you’ll have no trouble finding just the right card for every occasion and any personality. Here we provide some of the best free e-card sites. Check out one or two, and let friends and family know you’re thinking of them! (Most of these sites require you to register with your email address.)
There aren’t many basic necessities that everyone needs in life: water, food, clothing, shelter. For families with children who need medical care at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, comfortable and convenient shelter can be hard to find. Fortunately for them, David’s House has been offering a home away from home to families facing a health crisis since 1986. The home is named in honor of David Cyr, who lost his battle against leukemia at the young age of five. In founding the house, David’s family made a promise to other families that struggle to find shelter close to DHMC. To date, David’s House has sheltered 12,101 families and counting.
