Review~Cheddar Cheese Bear Paw Crackers

Recently my family was given the opportunity by Mom Central Canada to receive a box of Bear Paw Cheddar Cheese Crackers by Dare Foods and the kiddies loved them and as a mom I was more then happy to serve this nutritious snack to them especially knowing that they are peanut free and are made in a peanut/nut free facility.With so many restrictions nowadays with what your children can and cannot take to school for snacks and in their lunches it's great when companies such as Dare Foods take that extra step to ensure your children have a snack that will be welcomed at your child's school.

Good For You Facts: • Peanut Free
• Low in Saturated Fat
• No Trans Fat
• Source of Calcium
• Source of Thiamine
• Source of Niacin
• Good Source of Folate
• No Artificial Flavors
• Made with Real Old Cheddar Cheese

These have been added to our shopping list and my family would like to thank Mom Central for the opportunity to test this product and to Dare Foods for taking the extra time to care about what our children put in their mouths.

Recently I was given the opportunity to try a pair of STRIDE EVERYDAY panties and all I can say is WOW for me a mother of 5 kids my bladder has been through it's wear and tear of being used as a trampoline while pregnant.Now for about 5 years I have lived with having a little leakage problem and went to the doctor many times to see how to solve this problem and got nowhere.So like many women past and present in my family I had to result in wearing a pantyliner all the time especially when it came to cold and flu season oh and yes can't forget about good old allergy season when the coughing and sneezing are the worse.So you could say for about the last 5 years I have been a prisoner to pantyliners and when it gets real bad full out sanitary napkins which I dreaded as they always make me feel like Im wearing a diaper.

Well now I can happily say that I am not a prisoner anymore now that I have had the chance to try STRIDE and Am thrilled to say that I will definately be buying some of these.You can get either bikini or brief style and they come in a variety of colors/designs and they even come in a wide variety of sizes including Curves for the 14+.Best of all they are washable good for up to 100 wears now that will be a HUGE money saver for me from buying pantyliners and pads all the time.

So if you are like me and have a leaky bladder and have always been embarrassed by having to wear a pantyliner or pad all the time and always checking to see if your pantyliner or pad was visible through your clothes it's time for you to give STRIDE a try as no more visible bulges will appear.Heck I kept checking out my bottom in the mirror when I was wearing the STRIDE just for the fact that I couldn't believe that it was absolutely undetectable to the naked eye.You will be pleasantly surprised how comfy and freeing wearing STRIDE will make you free.No more being embarrassed by having a leaky bladder and noone will be the wiser.No I can go about my everyday busy life of 5 kids with the confidence that I am well protected from leaks.

Before I get to the giveaway aspect of this post I would like to introduce you to the brains and beauty behind STRIDE EVERYDAY panties. This lovely woman pictured above is Wendy Spencer founder and president of STRIDE EVERYDAY.Wendy had a passion for fashion at an early age and about the same time she started experiencing her first bladder leakage moment.As many women do Wendy used to wrap sweaters around her waist. As a mother,business woman and with being very active in life Wendy decided to create a product for women that were like herself and had light leaks and were tired of using disposable products.

Does Milk Really Do The Body Good?

We Have always been told since we were little and for many many generations we have all been told that milk does the body good,but is this infact true?

For years and generations now milk has been pushed on our families as to be a very important part of a health strong growing body,yet they do not disclose to their consumers that too much milk doesn't do the body good and how much is too much?

In September 2009 my now 6 year old daughter was experiencing growing like pains so I took her to the doctor and after the doctor hear the symptoms and doing an examination our family doctor concluded that it looked like it was growing pains.So we left and continued on our everyday lives as we usually did.Then within the coming weeks the symptoms were still there and her hair was getting brittle and falling out so I rushed her back to the doctor as this is something I had never experienced before and it freaked me out.The doctor examined her and asked how she was as in her everyday life,I told him not much had changed she was still eating just as well as she had always ate and was still quite active,but was complaining of pain in her legs.He reported to me that she didn't look much different a little pale and he couldn't figure out why the hair loss and said it could still be growing pains but with the hair loss he said we better get her to the lab for blood work.

I was sitting on pins and needles all kinds of horrible thoughts kept coming to mind and thought I would die by Monday for the doctor to call with the test results,so at 9:00pm that night I tucked her into bed with her My Little Pony movie playing and went back downstairs to tidy up,when the phone rang and it was the doctor urging me to get her to the hospital right away as she was going to need emergency blood transfusions.I broke down crying not knowing what to expect but ran up the stairs grabbed her out of bed and went right to the hospital.

At the hospital they rushed her right in and started to do more blood work and the doctor there examined her and asked a load of questions.My poor baby girl was crying and I was crying with her not knowing what to expect and praying for the best.When the doctor told me that he thought she would have to be rushed to Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital because he was thinking the worst that she might have leukemia .That just killed me hearing those words as that was the words that I was dreading to hear the most.

A little while later which felt like a lifetime the doctor came back in with the test results and said that she didn't have leukemia and did not need to go to Toronto but would have to stay in the hospital to get blood transfusions.I was relieved that she didn't have leukemia and that the hospital could do what she needed there,but was still shaken and scared for her with the blood transfusions.

The doctor explained to me that she was anemic which is something that happens when you drink too much milk or dairy products.That milk has no Iron in it and for that fact the milk would suck out the Iron from my daughters blood and that would lower her hemoglobin levels.I was shocked with this new found knowledge and questioned the doctor how is this possible when they always advertise that milk does the body good.He told me yes milk can do the body good but that it can also do harm if overly digesting it.He then asked me how much milk and milk products did she eat/drink daily.I told him no more then usual she loves her milk and cheese,always having milk with her meals and with snacks and that she ate cheese as a snack alot as she loves her milk and cheese,but that she ate a regular diet like the rest of the family.So then obviously he questioned if anyone else in the family had any of her symptoms and I told him no it was just her.

She was admitted and stayed in the hospital for 4 nights 3days and was put on an Iron enriched diet and was told that she could no longer have dairy at all.She had 3 blood transfusions which helped raise her hemoglobin levels and was released,but I had to closely monitor her to make sure she didn't over do herself as too much activity would wear her out so she was home from school for a week and had regular doctors appointments and many visits to the lab for blood testing to make sure that her hemoglobin levels didn't drop.

She quickly recovered and almost 2 years later she is going strong and living a happy healthy life and our family has gone completely from dairy milk to Almond and Soy milk and although she is allowed to have dairy again she gets very little dairy as does the whole family because once bitten twice shy on something like that to every happen to my family again.

That is why I pose the question Does Milk Really Do The Body Good? Me myself am a little milk/dairy shy now from that tragedy that happened to my family,and makes me wonder why or where do we as parents draw the line with milk/dairy for our children.

Sometimes what is good for us and our children can also be harmful.

Giveaway~NERVE~ By Taylor Clark CLOSED

About the book:
Nerves make us bomb job interviews, first dates, and SATs. With a presentation looming at work, fear robs us of sleep for days. It paralyzes seasoned concert musicians and freezes rookie cops in tight situations. And yet not everyone cracks. Soldiers keep their heads in combat; firemen rush into burning buildings; unflappable trauma doctors juggle patient after patient. It's not that these people feel no fear; often, in fact, they're riddled with it.

In Nerve, Taylor Clark draws upon cutting-edge science and painstaking reporting to explore the very heart of panic and poise. Using a wide range of case studies, Clark overturns the popular myths about anxiety and fear to explain why some people thrive under pressure, while others falter-and how we can go forward with steadier nerves and increased confidence.
