Get Your Child Interested in Reading-Guide & Tips

Reading is one of the most important things in life. Without it you can’t read signs, menus, books, or instruction manuals. You won’t be able to do certain math problems, science tasks, and more, so it’s very important that everyone knows how to read. School is one of the best ways to learn to read. Your child’s teacher will help him learn to read and enjoy it. You have to continue that encouragement during the off time or they’ll lose it and not want to go back again. weblink

The best thing to do is find a series of books your child enjoys. This may be difficult at first, but it will be very helpful. If you are not sure what your child will enjoy, you’ll need to start somewhere. Ask him what he likes to read or what topics are of interest to him. Find a book for him to start reading and see if it works for him.

If you can’t find a series of books, consider books written by the same author. Most times an author keeps the same writing style and that may help them to enjoy reading books. If this doesn’t work consider a subject or type of book for them to try. When you’re in this mode, it’s important to go to the library to check these books out rather than purchasing them. If possible, stay at the library and encourage your child to read a chapter or two of the book before you leave.

Learning disabilities can cause problems when it comes to reading, but there are several different ways to handle them. One way I have found that works well is to use a Kindle. When children struggle with reading do to a learning disability a book can seem endless in size and can cause unneeded stress. When you use a Kindle the pages are hidden and the book doesn’t appear to be so large. Some children do better when technology is involved and that’s another reason why a Kindle makes a good tool. You can use the computer or purchase the actual device so either way will work for your child.

When you help your child do find something they’re interested in and you help them with a technique that will make reading easier for them, they’ll want to take the time to sit down and read. It’s important to choose books that are within their reading limits so they don’t get frustrated and discouraged. Reading is very important in a child’s life. Without it they won’t get very far no matter what it is they do or want to do. Everything evolves around reading and so it’s important you encourage your child to read

Naturopathic Travel Diet


Travelling is an exciting experience. But choosing the right diet and maintaining an ideal body weight while travelling becomes a challenge sometimes. Travelling, whether for business or vacation, introduces the traveler to a whole world of temptation which a dieting traveler may not have faced at home. It is hard when it comes to making holidays and vacations healthy without getting concerned about the weight, particularly so if somebody has been struggling to lose weight in the last few months.

How would we then make a balance between eating what we like and at the same time not worry about what we eat? How are we going to make our vacations and holidays fun and exciting without worrying about a healthy diet? But the fact is, if you learn how to make simple but smart choices, eating a healthy diet is not a difficult task even when you are travelling. A slight modification in your diet during vacations and travels is not a difficult thing to do. Here are a few tips that can help you make your vacations and holidays healthy without worrying about your weight: check over here


-Plan ahead the type of diet you are looking for during your vacations and holidays.

-Whenever possible, eat whole, fresh, and unprocessed foods. For example, whole meal bread contains complex carbohydrates rich in whole grain and fibers which will keep you feeling full longer; you eat less and don’t gain weight (or even lose weight).

-If you are flying, when you book your flight ticket, ask about your food options. If you prefer vegetarian dishes, go for it. Vegetarian dishes are sometimes more healthy and nutritional.

-If you want to avoid meal in the airplane, eat your meal before your flight. Eat a light meal which may include sandwiches, lean meat, fruits juice, veggies, and whole grain pasta. In-flight meals are generally rich in fat and carbohydrate.

-If you are driving, avoid the temptation to stop at every fast food restaurant. If you must, try to select healthier options like chicken breasts, diet soda and other healthy items.

-If you are travelling by car, bus or train, you can also take your own food. Loaf of whole-meal bread, lean chicken, pita wraps and low-fat cheese are some healthy foods ideal for travelling. Fruits like grapes, apples, bananas, pears and nuts like walnuts, peanuts and almonds are good for munching on the journey. Low fat biscuits, oat bars and green tea are other healthy items easy to carry.

-While staying in motels and hotels, try to chose a healthy diet; for example, for breakfast choose cereals like oat, muesli, toast, boiled or scrambled eggs and fruits; for lunch and dinner, choose sandwiches, soups, rice, steamed vegetables, fish, grilled chicken and yoghurt.

-Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. You get dehydrated fast when you are in pressurized cabins in airplanes or sightseeing in the sun. Always keep bottles of water and packets of fruit juices especially if you are travelling with children.

-Avoid excess snacking by keeping yourself busy. If you have long hours to wait for a connecting flight, walk in the aisle, or do some light stretching exercises. You can even read books to divert your attention from snacking.

-At the same time, make sure you eat enough and at regular intervals. Eat something every 4-5 hours. If you do not do this, it will disrupt your blood sugar and insulin levels both of which, promote fat storage and lower metabolism, leading to weight gain.

-Do not take extra vitamin or mineral supplements during vacations or travels but take only those recommended by your doctor or nutritionist.Taking extra supplements will not give any extra benefit.
