Parenting Workshop Series at Davis Branch Library

Yolo County’s Mary L. Stephens Branch Library, located at 315 East 14th Street in Davis, will host a four-part parenting workshop series for children, age 1-3, and their parents.  The series will be held 10:15-11:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, October 16 to November 6.

These workshops will provide preschoolers and their caregivers opportunity to play together with developmentally appropriate toys, learn together with children’s health and developmental resource guests, and get to know other parents in the community with like-aged children.  Dramatic play, music and art, gross and fine motor skills, as well as books and puppet play will be incorporated into the series. Presenters will include a nutritionist, pediatrician, pediatric occupational therapist and children’s yoga specialist. 

Due to the focus on young children, older siblings may not attend.

2013 Weekly Challenge #39: Go Sugar FREE

2013 Weekly Challenge #39:  Go Sugar FREE

I can hardly beleive it is already almost October. Its time for crisp fall apples, winter squash, veggie soup and...Halloween Candy. Ugg.

Even the healthiest eaters sometimes struggle at this time of year. Everywhere you turn, there's another bowl of candy, a baked treat, and a "reason to celebrate." But we all know that stuff just isn't good for you. And once you start eating it, it can be pretty hard to stop.

This week, give yourself a jumpstart on the holidays by eliminating the refined sugar from your diet. No soda, no cookies, no ice cream and don't even think about that candy corn. But you weren't eating that stuff anyway, right?)

Natural sugars, of course, are an important part of a healthy diet, so keep eating your fruits and veggies as usual.

One week, no refined sugar. You CAN do it, and your body will love you for it!

Weekly Challenge: Pick Your Day!

Tis the season for parties, celebrations, get togethers...food is everywhere all the time this time of year, and it isn't always the healthy stuff.

The bad news: the average person expects to gain weight during the holidays, and does so.
