Are stainless steel crowns safe for a 5 year old?

Are stainless steel crowns safe for a 5 year old?

Yes: A stainless steel crown is a way to protect a tooth and preserve a space. Baby teeth don't hold large fillings well, so think of a stainless steel crown as a large filling. When baby teeth are lost too early, then the permenant teeth dont have a natural guide into their proper position. The stainless steel crown can save thousands of dollars on orthodontics later. ...Read more

Was my lunch ok for weight loss or did i screw up?I'm 18 male 5'9 170. One piece whole grain bread, slice onion, slice tomato, 1 avacodo, handful almonds

OK: One meal isn't going to make or break your program- the best way to lose weight is permanent changes in how you eat. Slow ; steady is the way to go. Hard to evaluate your lunch without knowing the rest of your diet but it looks ok. Eat mostly fruits, veggies, nuts ; seeds ; you'll lose weight. I'd have much more tomato/onion that a slice. Whole grains ok in moderation. See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read more

Can a 17 yrs old (18 running) consume green coffee bean extract?

Insufficient reports: Green coffee beans are beans that have not been roasted. Roasting decreases chlorogenic acid, a chemical that is believed to increase metabolism and help with weight loss. Inadequate studies have been done to prove safety or to determine correct dosing. Green beans also contain caffeine, which is well known to cause upset stomach, jitteriness, insomnia and occasionally anxiety. ...Read more

Can I give my 1 year old flavored milk instead of plain?

Can I give my 1 year old flavored milk instead of plain?

Not Ideal!: Your one year old needs whole milk until age two, then 2%. The added sugar and artificial flavorings are unnecessary! Flavored milks are a significant contributor to obesity in childhood. Put the money in your baby's college fund instead and watch it grow! ...Read more

Big Breakfast: It is important to have a large breakfast so that you are fueled for the rest of the day. Try snacking very small amounts throughout the day. So you should have three small meals and two snacks in your day. Include exercise in this and you should begin loosing weight. ...Read more

My daughter has eczema, what are good soaps/shampoos to use? She's 4 yrs old. Is aveeno (oatmeal) great?

Frosted mini wheats has 90% rdi iron. Can my 4yr old eat a serving a day instead of taking supplements (hard to disguise taste)?  seems too easy. 

Frosted mini wheats has 90% rdi iron. Can my 4yr old eat a serving a day instead of taking supplements (hard to disguise taste)?  seems too easy. 

But so much sugar: Cereals are fortified with many nutrients that make them seem almost too good to be true...And perhaps they are. Sugary cereals like the frosted ones are packed with sugars, leading to short-term energy, but little lasting energy or nutritional value. If your doctor says your child needs extra iron for some reason, talk to them about how much is enough and see if a different supplement will work. ...Read more

Can a 13 month old toddler eat peanut butter?

Can a 13 month old toddler eat peanut butter?

Yes - and no: From an allergy standpoint, it's ok to give peanut containing things after a year of age. However, that being said, if you spread the peanut butter thick on bread and they take a big bite, the consistency of a big glop of peanut butter could be a choking hazard. If you are spreading it very thin on a cracker, etc, and are watching carefully as they eat small bites, you should be ok. ...Read more

Hello : Hello mother of a 17 year old. I find that it is sometimes hard for me to get my children to eat the foods that i prepare. I commend you that you make your son hot breakfasts in the morning- a lot of kids just get a box of cereal handed to them with milk. The one thing i didn't see listed was vegetables. The fiber, vitamins and enzymes from fresh vegetables is very important. The eggs and ham can contribute to cholesterol. I recommend that you look up the food pyramid on line (it has changed a lot in the last decade). Use this to help pla out balanced and nutritious food. Take care. ...Read more
