"Make Good Choices!" Program

This program is designed to help young children understand the differences between poor diets and healthy diets and between unsuitable activities and great activities that make them strong and fit. One of the program's greatest goal is to eliminate children's confusion about their choices  and convey clear guidelines for their preferences. Children like sweets. Taking in too many sugar calories may result in weight gain. Being overweight or obese puts children at a higher risk for cancer, diabetes and other illnesses.

Most people are not aware that chronic exposure to commercially-derived fructose, which is added to the majority of food and drinks for palatability and taste enhancement, causes metabolic syndrome. About 240,000 tones of crystalline fructose are produced annually. Excess fructose consumption has been hypothesized to be a cause of insulin resistance, obesity, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, leading to metabolic syndrome.

This program may help parents deal with their children's demands for unhealthy foods (such as sweets made from refined sugar and lacking nutritional value). In addition, Make Good Choices! encourages parents to avoid incorporating sugary sweets and beverages as part of their child's reward system, which may lead to the future development of a food addiction and development of cancer and diabetes. Instead, the program provides advice on healthy reward options that fosters their child's self-pride.

What Makes Danny Sick?”

“What Makes Danny Sick?” has been written to help children understand the consequences of making unhealthy food and activity choices and to encourage them to develop preferences that promote health. Studies suggest that preschool children are already forming food preferences and are attentive to food choices made by their parents.With all developments and efforts geared toward healthier eating habits, the literature available for our children will also need to reflect positive messages.

"What Made Danny Sick?" is a great book that will quickly become a children’s favorite. This educational picture book is fun, interesting and easy to understand and remember. Meaningful statements in the book, affirmed with confidence, have the ability to influence our children to want to live healthier. Rhyming health guidelines in children’s picture books make the chosen affirmations even more memorable, because rhymes reinforce in our memory and make recall easier. The science of affirmations teaches us how to send powerful, positive thoughts to our conscious and subconscious minds. We can then deploy our own thoughts to break through limitations, transform bad habits and turn failure into success.

The pictures in the book What Made Danny Sick? are created with the purpose to evoke sensory impressions, feelings and emotions that assist in accepting affirmed statements as a perceived truth. The limbic system in the brain supports a variety of functions including emotion, behavior, motivation, long-term memory. It appears to be primarily responsible for our emotional life, and has a lot to do with the formation of memories. The meaning a child’s developing brain gives to child-parent reading experiences creates conclusions or model of how life is supposed to be.

The book What Made Danny Sick? will serve as an educational tool

    To motivate children to eat healthy and become more active
    To develop and modify good habits at an early age to “protect” against obesity and diabetes
    To help parents deal with their children’s demands for unhealthy foods, such as sweets made from refined sugar and lacking nutritional value
    To prevent children from developing unhealthy emotional eating habits that allow them to use sweets as a way to deal with their feelings and stress levels.
    To provide effective help to families, schools and communities in an effort to assist them in reaching the national goal of wellness.
