What Do I Do When My Child Has A Tantrum In The Grocery Store
Calm and assertive: Get down on his level and let him know what you need and expect out of him BEFORE you enter the store. Then if behavior isn't as expected follow thru with a pre-determined action, i.e. taking him to the car for a couple minutes. Most important - be prepared to leave if behavior is bad - don't allow bad behavior or reward it just because you have errands or are embarrassed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Before you go, tell: your child what behavior you want, the reward for complying & the consequence for not, at his language level. Make short trips to " catch him being good." If he tantrums, pick him up from behind; don't talk or make eye contact ; put him in time out in the car, if cool. Stay outside the car with your back turned. When he's quiet, set timer for 1 min/yr of age. Go back in, repeat till he quits. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it bad not to wash organic carrots from the grocery store if they have dirt/soil on what are health risks?
Yes!!! All produce: should be thoroughly rinsed & cleaned with a vegetable scrubber. I prefer this to peeling since many nutrients are on the skin. Also remove the outer leaves of cabbage and other leaf veggies & cut the bottoms off. I usually wait until I'm about ready to prepare produce to rinse it; otherwise the moisture makes it soggy. Contaminated produce can cause food-borne illness & exposure to pesticides. ...Read more

Healthy food: The best way to see what foods are good, not so good, and bad can be found on the Internet as "NuVal". This will list 100 items with the dietary value ranging from zero (very bad) to 100 (very good).
