Alcohol and Pregnancy: It’s Just Not Worth the Risk

Not Even a Sip!
Make a plan for a healthy baby—don’t drink any alcohol if you are pregnant or could become pregnant. FASDs are 100% preventable. Learn more here.

healthychildren.org ​There's no guarantee that a baby will be born healthy or grow up healthy. However, there is an absolute guarantee that a child will not have a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) if a mother does not drink alcohol while pregnant.​

healthychildren.org Children in the 2- to 5-year-old age group get their motivation and develop motor skills from self-play behaviors. Active games and backyard play are great sources of exercise for your child.

Cognitive Development: One-Year-Old

As you watch your toddler at play, have you noticed how hard she concentrates on everything she does? Each game or task is a learning proposition, and she’ll gather all sorts of information about the way things work. She’ll also now be able to draw on facts she’s already learned in order to make decisions and find solutions to play-related challenges.

healthychildren.org Imitation is a big part of your child's learning process at this age. Until your child develops their own common sense, they’ll need your vigilance to keep them safe. Here are some milestones for cognitive development in your one-year-old.

Binge-Eating Disorder (Compulsive Overeating)

Concerned about your child and possible overeating or binge eating? A diagnosis of possible binge-eating disorder is based on these seven criteria:
-Recurrent food-bingeing at least twice a week for six months or more.
-During binges, the teen feels unable to control her overeating.
-Eats despite not feeling hungry.
-Often eats until uncomfortably full.
-Tends to eat alone out of embarrassment over the amount of food in front of her.
-After bingeing, the teen feels guilty, depressed or upset with himself.
The teen is distressed by her behavior, but unable to stop it.

If you have concerns please make an appointment with your pediatrician.

healthychildren.org Binge eaters polish off enormous quantities of food in a short amount of time, then regret having done so but make no effort to rid themselves of the calories consumed. Roughly one in three obese adolescent girls who seek treatment for their weight are compulsive overeaters.

Healthy Children

Introduce variety to your baby's diet.

When your baby starts eating solid foods, be sure to introduce a variety of foods early - to avoid picky eating later on. American Academy of Pediatrics Pediatrician David Hill, MD, FAAP explains:

Healthy Mealtime Habits for Preschoolers - Tips for Parents:

1. Offer a range of healthy foods. When children eat a variety of foods, they get a balance of the vitamins they need to grow. Healthy options include fresh vegetables and fruits, low-fat dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheeses) or dairy substitutes, lean proteins (beans, chicken, turkey, fish, lean hamburger, tofu, eggs), and whole-grain cereals and bread.

2. Don't expect children to "clean their plates." Serve appropriate portion sizes, but do not expect your child to always eat everything served. Even better, let your children choose their own portion sizes. It is okay if children do not eat everything on their plates. At this age, they should learn to know when they are full. Some four-year-olds may still be picky eaters. Parents can encourage their children to try new foods, but they should not pressure eating.

3. Offer regular meal times and sit together. Serve foods at regular meal and snack times. Try to be careful to not offer foods between these eating times. Children who are eating or "grazing" throughout the day may not be hungry at mealtimes, when healthier foods tend to be available. When it is meal or snack time, turn off the TV, and eat together at the table. This helps create a calm environment for eating.

4. Limit processed food and sugary drinks. Another parent role is to limit how much processed food is in the house and to limit fast food. Most important is to limit sugary drinks. Sugary drinks include soda, juice drinks, lemonade, sweet tea, and sports drinks. Sugary drinks can lead to cavities and unhealthy weight gain.

5. The best drinks are water and milk. The best drinks for children are water and milk (including non-dairy milk). Milk provides calcium and vitamin D to build strong bones. Ice cream is okay once in a while, but it should not be offered every day. Whole fruit is preferable to fruit juice—even if it is 100% juice—as juice is a concentrated source of sugar and low in fiber. If you offer juice, make it 100% fruit juice and limit it to 4 oz. or less per day. It is best to serve juice with a meal, as juice is more likely to cause cavities when served between meals.

6. Small portions for small children. It is important to pay attention to portion sizes. Four- and five-year-olds need smaller servings than adults. Encourage your children to choose their own serving size, but use smaller plates, bowls, and cups. See Energy In: Recommended Food & Drink Amounts for Children.

7. Turn off the TV—especially at mealtimes. Television advertising can be a big challenge to your child's good nutrition. Four- and five-year-olds are easily influenced by ads for unhealthy foods like sugary cereals, fast food, and sweets. The best way to avoid this is put in place a "media curfew" at mealtime and bedtime, putting all devices away or plugging them into a charging station for the night.

8. Teach table manners. At this age, your child should be ready to learn basic table manners. By age four, he or she will no longer grip the fork or spoon in his or her fist and be able to hold them like an adult. With your help, he or she can begin learning the proper use of a table knife. You can also teach other table manners, such as not talking with a full mouth, using a napkin, and not reaching across another person's plate. While it's necessary to explain these rules, it's much more important to model them. Your child will watch to see how the rest of the family is behaving and follow their lead. It's easier to develop table manners if you have a family custom of eating together. Make at least one meal a day a special and pleasant family time. Have your child set the table or help in some other way in preparing the meal.
