The 8 Worst Foods For Kidsimage – Monkey Business – fotolia.com (under license)

What we feed our children plays an important role in their growth and development. Nutrition directly affects not only their physical health, but influences behavior, how they learn in school and form relationships with others. More often than not, kids today have working parents, leaving very little time for ample meal planning and grocery shopping – leading to an increase in childhood obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. Here’s a list of 8 notorious “worst offenders” to avoid:

#1: Chicken Nuggets
Processed chicken nuggets such as those found at fast food establishments and in frozen food aisles are typically loaded with corn products, sugar, preservatives and stabilizers (and not that much chicken!) Make your own chicken nuggets or chicken breast using organic chicken instead if possible.

#2: Soda
One 12-oz can of soda has an astonishing 10 teaspoons of sugar. These drinks are also full of additives and often caffeine. The sugar rush becomes addictive. After the sugar rush, soda causes children to “crash”, affecting their mood and sleep cycle as well. Try to pack fresh juice or milk for your child instead.

#3: Hot Dogs And Luncheon Meat
Like frozen chicken nuggets, hot dogs and canned luncheon meats are loaded with fillers and preservatives, having very little actual meat in them. Cured meats especially have a lot of salt and fat in them, which contribute to childhood obesity and high blood pressure. They have also been implicated in an increased risk of cancer.

#4: Boxed Mac And Cheese
Another child favorite is mac and cheese! While this dish can be quite nutritious delicious when prepared at home with fresh ingredients (and the hidden ingredient: veggies!), the boxed kind begs to differ. Dehydrated pasta and salty cheese won’t give your kid the nutrients he or she needs for a day at school. Boxed mac and cheese can typically also contain lot of food coloring and other additives.

#5: Sugary Cereals
Although marketed as healthy, these are often laden with sugar and artificial colorings which have been implicated as a health risk. Beware of clever marketing which disguises sugar as “cane juice” and may contain “blueberry bits” which (astonishingly) may not actually contain any blueberry at all, but may be made from sugar and blue food coloring. Try packing your child whole grain oatmeal with honey and fresh fruit instead!

#6: Candies And Other Sweet Snacks
Again, just like the sugary high and “crash” after drinking sugary drinks, the same happens when a child only eats a snack loaded with sugar. Many of these also are cleverly packaged as “made with real fruit” – but the fruit content may be minimal and highly processed.

#7: French Fries
French fries are one of the most compelling of junk foods. Who doesn’t love them? However the fast food varieties are highly artificial, being trans-fat and salt laden. Kids love them because they are crispy and salty – but the fat content from deep frying this snack contributes to hypertension and heart disease, even among kids. Make your own healthier French fries by cutting up potatoes, adding a little bit of salt and a healthier oil such as coconut, and baking them in the oven.

#8: Pop Tarts And Toaster Pastries
Toaster pastries are very popular in the US with the advent of the Pop Tart, but again, they are a little more than bread covered with sugar, artificial flavors, and dyes. Instead of these instant toaster pastries, a sandwich with organic fruit and peanut spreads is a healthier option.

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
