What to Pack in Modern Lunchboxes for Kids?

Lots of parents have a level of anxiety about packing their kids’ lunchbox that makes morning times less than ideal. The fact is that lunchtime should be a fun occasion for kids where they can let their hair down and eat something that gives them a boost.

Choosing the Best Lunchbox Snack

Putting together the right lunchboxes that kids will enjoy is not always an easy thing for parents to do. The problem is that so many parents have so little time to dedicate to the morning routine that they simply stick in a bunch of snacks without much thought. This often leads to lunch and break times that are not always so much fun for kids as they struggle to find something they really want to eat.

Fussiness is all part of growing up and the real challenge for many parents is to come up with a lunchbox food formula that works. The ideal lunchbox is different for every child, but kids usually want the following kinds of foods:

  • Easy to handle foods that are convenient for their small hands to grasp
  • Foods that look like they might be fun to eat
  • Foods that look familiar to them
  • Foods that taste good

As you can imagine, this situation is more like a puzzle for the average parent who might be stretched in a dozen different directions on a busy school morning.

A Snack for the Busy Parent and the Fussy Child

When kids become fussy, it can be a real headache for parents. How many times have you packed a lunchbox only to find that half of it hasn’t even been eaten?

It’s important to choose the right kinds of snacks for a lunchbox. They should certainly be small enough to fit inside the lunchbox and should be easy enough to handle for the child. They should also be appealing and taste good.

Strings & Things from Kerry Foods has ideal snacks for lunchboxes because they are small and easy enough to hold, even on a busy playground. It’s also easy to eat and has an appealing fun factor that most kids will like.

Making Lunchtime Fun Again

In this context, it’s important to make sure that lunchtimes at school are fun. Kids get distracted easily and packing a lunchbox full of appealing snacks is the key to grabbing their attention and making sure that they eat something during the day.

Lunchtimes are also a great time of the day for kids to let their hair down, play, and relax. They can connect with friends and make new friends. The ideal snack fits into this scenario and doesn’t demand too much of their time or get in the way of what they want to do.

Strings & Things from Kerry Foods make lunchtimes fun because it fits into what lunchtime should really be about: a fun social part of the day where kids can play and have something to eat that’s appealing and not overly demanding.

Bankruptcy Basics – Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13

I’m writing this article as an experienced Pennsylvania bankruptcy lawyer to provide you with an outline of the basics of bankruptcy and to answer some common questions.

What Kind of Bankruptcies Are There?

The two types of bankruptcy most commonly filed by consumer debtors are called “Chapter 7” Bankruptcy and “Chapter 13” Bankruptcy, after the Bankruptcy Code sections where the applicable law is found.  Whether to file under one Chapter or the other depends upon several factors, including your current income, the value of your assets, and your goals in filing a bankruptcy petition.

How Does Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Work?

If you file your bankruptcy petition under Chapter 7, you have passed the “means test” (an evaluation of your debt and your income and family size in relation to the median income for your state).  Your attorney will help you determine whether you qualify to file Chapter 7 – extraordinary medical, commuting or childcare expenses can also factor in and render you eligible to file even if your income is above the median for your family size. 

Procedurally, a bankruptcy case is commenced when one files a “petition.”  Once the petition is filed, the “automatic stay” goes into effect, which stops or “stays” collection actions against you, including lawsuits.  When you file your petition, you will also file “schedules” in which you set forth your personal information and your debts, your income, your expenses, and the nature and value of your possessions and assets. 

Your assets, less some “exemptions,” constitutes your Bankruptcy “estate.”   The estate is administered by a Trustee.  The Trustee will meet with you and your attorney at the “341(a) hearing” to establish your identity and verify facts set forth in your petition and schedules, and to make further inquiries if warranted.

If you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can expect to receive a “discharge” of unsecured debt within four to six months from filing, barring complications, and then your case will close, giving you your fresh start.

How Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Work?

If instead of filing a Chapter 7 petition you have filed your petition under Chapter 13, you will have experienced much the same procedure as if you had filed under Chapter 7, and also you will have filed a proposed repayment “plan” lasting three or five years.  You will commence making monthly plan payments to the trustee, who will, in turn, make distributions to your creditors in order of priority as set forth in that plan. 

When all plan payments have been made, your Chapter 13 plan is completed and you will receive a discharge as to that portion of unsecured debt which was not be paid through your plan.

As you might imagine, there is much to consider in determining whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing is appropriate for you. You should meet with a qualified bankruptcy attorney before making the decision.

I’ve heard that the Trustee can seize my assets if I file Chapter 7 – is this true?

The short answer is yes, Trustees have the power to seize assets that are not “exempt” from the bankruptcy “estate” (all of your assets and possessions). Your attorney’s job is to make sure all of your assets are protected from seizure by fully utilizing all “exemptions” (statutory means of taking assets/possessions out of the estate) available under the law. 

Be aware that, to the extent your estate exceeds your allowable exemptions, the Chapter 7 trustee may liquidate (sell) and distribute that portion of your estate to your creditors.  This can be problematic if, for example, you have equity in your home or car; in other words, if your home or car are worth more than you owe on them. 

One of the purposes of your initial consultation with your attorney is to determine whether any of your assets are at risk of sale by the Trustee.  If so, and you want to retain possessions that are non-exempt and/or in which you have equity, Chapter 7 may not be right for you and your attorney will help you explore your other options, including Chapter 13.

Is Debt Settlement Better than Bankruptcy?

No, unless you have only one or two creditors and those are willing to negotiate with you.

You should know that no creditor is required to negotiate with you outside of bankruptcy. Each of your creditors is entitled to be paid in full per the terms of their contracts with you, and creditors have little incentive to negotiate with you unless the law intervenes somehow. Filing a bankruptcy petition is the only sure way to stop collection efforts and force creditors to the table.

Can Bankruptcy Help Me With Student Loan Debt?

Bankruptcy will probably not help you with student loan debt unless they are private loans.  Consult with your attorney about whether your student loans qualify for discharge.

There are programs available through your loan servicer that can help you temporarily postpone or reduce your student loan payments.  For example, a deferment is a period of time, usually a year, during which your payments are temporarily postponed.  However, interest continues to accrue on unsubsidized loans and maybe capitalized, i.e., added to your principal balance, therefore, while loan deferment may provide you with temporary relief, it may also increase your overall debt. 

Forbearance can also eliminate or reduce your monthly payment temporarily.  There are two types of forbearance:  mandatory and discretionary.  You may ask your lender for discretionary forbearance due to financial hardship or illness.  Mandatory forbearance is granted when certain conditions are met, among them whether your student loan payment is twenty percent or more of your gross monthly income.

It is important that you avoid defaulting on student loans in order to remain eligible for programs such as these.  If your unsecured or medical debt burden is compromising your ability to pay your student loans and your monthly expenses, perhaps debt consolidation or bankruptcy can help you.

What Does Filing Bankruptcy Do To My Credit?

While it is true that a bankruptcy filing can remain on your credit report up to ten years, many debtors find that after they receive their discharge their credit scores rise because their debt-to-income ratio has dramatically improved. 

After receiving a discharge of unsecured debt, you can and should go about repairing your credit by paying all bills, such as student loans, utilities, rent or mortgage, and car loan or lease, on time and in full.  This way, if you need to borrow money in the years following bankruptcy you can show the lender a positive payment history after bankruptcy helped you achieve a fresh start.

Where Does CBD Oil Come From?

CBD oil is made from marijuana or hemp plants. Both of these plants are among the earliest agricultural crops in history. Cultures have been using hemp fibres to make ropes and materials for millennia. The seeds are used for health purposes, and the flowers have medical-related applications.

People started cultivating hemp and cannabis as they came to understand that different types of cannabis served different purposes.

In ancient Egypt, pregnant women were given marijuana to ease the pain of childbirth. In the Old World, hemp was used to make clothes and construction materials. In the early 20th century, people started breeding cannabis plants to contain high THC concentrations to make them more potent.

Facts and Figures

CBD, the abbreviation for cannabidiol, is one of the hemp plant’s many cannabinoids. The amount of CBD in CBD oil is not excessive so as to spark concern regarding overdosing. Still, dosages above 100 mg a day are not recommended unless you have a doctor’s approval. It’s also a good idea to ask a doctor if you can safely consume CBD oil if you are taking any other medication. CBD is not known to interact with other medication in general, but it still helps to be aware of the risks.

Flavonoids and terpenes are just as important to the efficacy of the oil as the CBD content and quality. The best ones are fully preserved in golden CBD oil, the quality of which is superior to that of all other oils.

Hemp vs. Marijuana

There are some differences between the plants, with the appearance being the first and most obvious one. Marijuana plants are bulky and short, while hemp plants are tall and slender.

How is CBD Oil Made?

There are several ways to extract the oil from hemp, such as using hydrocarbon, ethanol, or CO2 as solvents. Full information on this is available at reactiveplus.com one of the UK’s leading CBD brands.  The oil is separated from the plants via specific extraction processes into four main types. The best one is filtered golden oil, which is 100% pure. There is also isolate, which contains no terpenes, no cannabinoids besides CBD, and no flavonoids. Terpenes can be added to the isolate after it’s made. CBD isolate is crystals in pure form, extracted from industrial hemp.

Raw CBD oil contains all the hemp elements including the impurities. Distillate is a form of processed and enhanced CBD with fewer cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes.

Europe’s Hemp Leaders

France is Europe’s hemp growth leader with 14,500 hectares followed by Estonia with 3,500 hectares. The biggest licensed hemp farms in Europe are Endoca and Aurora Cannabis.

Licensing for European Hemp

Industrial hemp is legal in most European countries. Authorities state that it is legal to cultivate and supply plants for hemp fibre in the European Union if their THC content is low. Hemp rarely contains more than 0.3% THC. In the EU, you can grow industrial hemp legally if it contains less than 0.2% THC. Each country has specific legislation. EU-based farmers can get subsidies to cultivate hemp. Hemp producers in the UK must undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

Curiosities That Will Amaze You About An Engagement Ring

Image by Terri Cnudde from Pixabay

Do you know the meaning of an engagement ring? We present to you oddities that will leave you surprised. It is impracticable to rebuff that we have all dreamed of having our hand requested. We get a silly smile just thinking about it. It’s a super romantic moment. All women believe that this moment must be special since it is another step in their lives.

And there is something that should close that deal or rather, that commitment. Therefore, it must be super special and trust a jewellery shop whose work is extraordinary such as https://savicki.co.uk/. Its extraordinary workshop, ahead of its time, with qualified masters and jewellery officers, offers you the best selection of jewellery, including necklaces.

Perhaps it is what makes us most excited, the ring is a symbol of the love you share, but why a ring? What does it mean? Where does this tradition originate? Here you have all the answers.

Origin

Already, during the time of the Egyptians, they gave rings to their women, but why? They showed their confidence in them to be good wives and housewives. In short, asking for marriage with a ring is a tradition that has been preserved to this day.

Situation

It is no concurrence that the commitment ring is placed on the ring finger. The fact of putting the ring there would cause the affections to unite and not escape through the fingertips.

The Stone

Some people prefer a smooth or straightforward ring, with nothing else, but most women like it to be made up of some precious stone. It is assumed that the stone is not broken or lost or destroyed by what this symbolizes, strength and purity, both in commitment and in the couple.

Type Of Stone

It is logical that depending on the stone; it may have one meaning or another. The gemstone that accompanies the engagement rings par excellence is the diamond. It represents perfection, will to triumph, firmness, and righteousness. It is one of the most robust stones and means that your partner promises you, eternal love.

Number

We refer to how many stones your engagement ring will consist of. A single stone means the union of two in one, and as the figure goes up, it means something different. For example, with three stones, each of them represents a stage of the couple’s relationship. Something like “I loved you, I love you, and I will always love you.”

Color Of The Stones

Just as there are differences according to the kind of stone, there are also distinctions when it comes to the colour of the stone chosen. The rampant colours in the choice of this jewel are pink, blue, and white. The rose represented with quartz means clarity in emotional issues; the white with the diamond, tranquillity; and blue with sapphire shows close ties. But there are also others like the ruby ​​that symbolizes trust and intelligence or the emerald: abundance provides balance and drives away negative forces.

Ring Tone Itself

It is true that many men already want something different and more original than the classic yellow gold. That is why now, the jewellers offer white gold, rose gold or silver, in addition to other shades, always adapting to your desires. There are in fact, those who risk for a black ring that offers prosperity, health, fidelity, strength, and happiness. But, despite this, we all know that we love that moment when the man kneels on the floor and pronounces that phrase that most women want to hear: “Do you want to marry me?”

Is International Vegetarian Day a Worthy Holiday to Buy a Gift?

International Vegetarian Day

Founded in 1977, International Vegetarian Day is celebrated to encourage the joy, compassion and vitality of vegetarianism. October 1st is the official date that kick-starts Vegetarian Awareness Month.

History

The North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) established International Vegetarian Day in 1977. A year later, it was adopted by the International Vegetarian Union. It has slowly gained popularity over the past four decades as more and more people have begun to examine moral, economic and environmental questions relating to meat consumption.

Significance

International Vegetarian Day is a day for everybody to look at their eating habits and to reflect on the health, society and environmental impact of such eating habits. It is also an opportunity for people to try out the vegetarian lifestyle without having to commit to it. This day also aims to promote the benefits that a vegetarian diet provides. Such a diet not only removes animal fats and cholesterol from the human body, but it also adds nutrients like fibres, antioxidants and cancer-fighting enzymes! With a low-fat vegetarian diet, you can completely avoid any cardiovascular issues which are otherwise common.

Celebration

The celebrations and events planned for International Vegetarian Day are as varied as the people who plan them. For vegetarians, it’s the perfect chance to celebrate healthy, compassionate food choices and for those already moving to plant-specific diets, i.e. vegans. The most natural way to celebrate International Vegetarian Day is by making a commitment to go meat-free for the whole month. Give yourself or your friends a chance to explore the world of vegetarian cuisine.

Gifting

Both vegetarians and non-vegetarians celebrate World Vegetarian Day by embracing all things healthy, wholesome, and tasty. There are many ways to share vegetarianism with others. Read on to get inspired by our list of gifting options on this special day.

  • Foodie Books – Like every lifestyle, it is one of the best things to remain curious and educated. So, many books are available for foodies from topics ranging from the sociology of eating, food industry, and farming. Whether you’re a meat-loving foodie looking to transition to eating some veggie meals per week or just in search of a beautiful vegetarian cookbook, we have you covered!
  • Organic Fruits – Anyone who is not so keen on going green will still appreciate the gift of organic fruits and nuts. It is the perfect gift for those who want to eat healthy yet don’t want to sacrifice taste. Organic fruits and nuts taste better as organic growth preserves the flavour and packs in more nutrients. Take the example of dates; hailed as the new superfood on the block, a gift box filled with organic dates will make for a healthy and thoughtful gift idea for vegetarians.
  • Homemade Veggie Meal – An amazing way to introduce others to the wonderful potential of meatless dishes is by packing a hearty homemade veggie meal for your co-worker, friend or family. You can include anything from new ingredients to different substitution techniques for a hearty preparation. We found a contemporary take on Chinese Pancakes that 100% plant-based!

Do‌ ‌kids‌ ‌need‌ ‌to‌ ‌wear‌ ‌deodorant?‌

kids legs - do kids need to wear deodorant?

Deodorant is worn to get rid of the odour coming from body sweat. Due to the intense activities that kids usually participate in, most parents are left with the question, “Do kids need to wear deodorant?” Others even wonder whether deodorants are safe and the right age for kids to start using them. Below are answers to several questions regarding deodorant and if kids need to wear it or not.

Depending on the age

It’s not recommended for very young kids to wear deodorant. It is advised that girls from 8 to 13 years old and boys from 9 to 14 years old can start to wear deodorant. This is because they would normally start showing signs of puberty and may begin to perspire more than usual. These signs include the development of breasts in girls and vocal changes in boys. Any of these signs before the age of 8 in a girl or the age 9 in a boy isn’t normal. It might be a medical problem so speak to your physician if this happens.

Start of Puberty

As your kids continue to grow and start puberty, a lot of physical changes occur in their bodies. Once you start noticing the signs linked to puberty, check if your kids have reached the age of puberty. The start of puberty comes with a lot of changes. In general, during puberty, most start developing body hair which brings a smell. This might prompt you to use a kid’s deodorant, especially if general hygiene practices like regular body wash doesn’t work.

Control body odour

There are different ways you can help your kid control odour. You can either use a deodorant or practice regular personal hygiene practices like bathing. While it might be normal for a kid at puberty to have a strong body odour, if he or she hasn’t started puberty, but has a strong body odour, this might not be normal. It might either be because your kid sweats a lot or releases more of the bacteria that lead to body odour.

Ensure that your kid showers regularly, especially after activities like sports. Routine body washes at least 2-3 times a day after activities like sports is always the best option. All the parts of the body like the genitals, armpits, and feet, need to be thoroughly cleaned.

If your regular bathing soap does not work, select a different one. This is because different soaps have different effects. Also, ensure that your kids wear clean clothes, socks and underwear and brush their teeth regularly. Find the best kids deodorant and maintain healthy personal care so that your kid can have a healthy body.

Reduce excessive sweating

At the onset of puberty, kids develop body odour as their underarm hair develops. This comes with some distinct odor which you might notice coming from your kid. Being in their teenage years, it’s not uncommon. But, some kids experience excessive sweating and deodorant might be the best option.

If none of the above work and you notice a persistent body odour coming from your kid, it’s best to pay a visit to the physician. They will be able to determine the actual cause, whether it’s a metabolic problem or puberty related. Most are also well positioned to recommend some ideas to help you out.

Weight Loss, Body Shaping And Coolsculpting

lose weight - coolsculpting

What would you not give to get that chiselled physique that is flaunted every so often online in many advertisements? There are often quite a few hiccups to achieving that. While image editing and photo retouching work their wonders, surgery is involved many times or those rigid and toned muscles are the result of years of training and a strict diet. The last two are kind of hard to attain in a short period of time. For those who aren’t looking at surgery or liposuction as options, there are a better non-invasive means to attain that kind of targeted fat loss. CoolSculpting (fat freezing) in London is a great option to consider if you have rather stubborn fat that doesn’t go away even after exercising.

Cryolipolysis is used to remove stubborn fat cells from targeted areas. Areas around the belly are the ones that get this treatment. Just as with liposuction, this procedure can be used to remove body fat, but without any kind of incision or cuts made to the area. The recovery time is way lesser, but the costs run a bit higher.

Does CoolSculpting help in weight loss? Yes and no. If you’re really overweight, the process can take multiple sessions and unless you follow a diet regime, it mostly wouldn’t help that much. However, if you have started exercising and controlling your diet, this helps a lot. The procedure partly depends on the equipment used and partly on the metabolism of your body. The actual procedure involves targeting the fat cells in specific areas and removing them through controlled freezing. Freezing the fat cells crystallises them and after a week or so, the body removes these dead cells through a completely natural process of absorption. This removes the fat deposit entirely, removing any chance of fat getting stored in these cells in the future. Close to around 30% of the deposited fat can be destroyed through multiple sessions of this procedure.

There are certain things to keep in mind before opting for this procedure. Based on your body type or physiology, your fat cells might vary according to their count, their fat content and how resilient they have become. Based on that, your doctor will prescribe the number of sessions that could be needed for you. A gel pad and an applicator will be used to provide controlled freezing to the targeted areas. Since no incisions are done and it is a completely non-invasive procedure, patients can get back to their normal routine almost immediately. There’s no pain associated with normal surgery, but since fat cells are frozen during the procedure, people might experience slight pinching and discomfort during and after the procedure. As the cold pinching feeling subsides, you would feel totally normal and as fit as a fiddle. There are no complications post-procedure.

It is a new and improved procedure that costs a bit extra but is a great option to go for if you’re looking to remove stubborn fat and don’t want to go under the knife. Plus, you get back to your normal life once the deed is done.

Easy Lifestyle Changes to Help You Sleep

We all struggle to sleep from time to time. Sometimes, the reasons for our sleepless nights are clear. You might have had too many late nights or early mornings, only to find that you can’t get back into your routine. You might be drinking too much caffeine late at night or overeating sugar. Sometimes we can’t sleep because we are stressed out and worried, and so we spend our nights tossing and turning as we struggle to turn our minds off for the night. 

But, the causes aren’t always as clear. You might find that you can’t sleep, but that there’s no apparent reason for it, which makes it much harder to deal with. Fortunately, it doesn’t always have to be difficult, and you might not have to make any drastic changes. There are often just a few simple lifestyle changes that can improve your quality of sleep, as well as its length.

Stop Smoking

Smoking might not directly impact your sleep. But, it can hurt the quality of the air in your home, increase your adrenaline levels, and have a negative effect on your mental health. Of course, quitting isn’t an easy change, but you could always go for a classic shisha pen in this kit for a swap.

Switch Off for an Hour Before Bed

A common cause of sleepless nights in the modern world is our growing use of technology. We sit in bed on our mobile phones or tablets, or minds kept alert by both the light and the content that we view. Try to switch devices off, or at least put them down for an hour before bed. 

Leave Your Phone in Another Room

You might also be guilty of sleeping with your phone charging up next to your bed. This won’t hurt you as such, but you might be tempted to check more than the time if you wake in the night. You might also turn to your phone as soon as you wake up, instead of trying to get a little more rest or waking gradually. Leave your phone in another room overnight, and you might sleep much better. 

Exercise More

Getting even ten minutes more exercise a day can help you to sleep better. It tires your body out, eases your stress and improves your mood. Try cardio exercise, or at least going for a short walk after dinner.

Get Organised for the Morning

Sometimes, we can’t sleep because we are worried about how much we need to do in the morning. You might be subconsciously planning what you need to do. So, start doing some of it before you go to bed. Pack lunches, get uniforms out, prepare what you are going to wear, and even begin showering before bed. You might sleep better if you know your morning will be easier. It can also mean that you can get up a little later. 

If these changes don’t help, there’s still no clear reason for your sleepless nights and no sign of improvement, you may want to look for any other symptoms, and see your doctor. Just in case it’s a symptom of an underlying condition.

Changes To Help You Feel Healthier Every Day

Everyone wants to feel as healthy as possible. That much is clear, but what is often less clear is how you are actually supposed to go about making it a reality. If you find that you are not as healthy as you would like to be, or at any rate that you don’t feel all that healthy, then there are many things you might like to do in order to change that. Often, it is merely a matter of changing one or two habits, or just introducing some healthy new thing into your daily life. But what kind of changes might be best for this purpose, and which are the kind of things that are bound to make the most of a difference? Let’s take a look at a few of the best and most important changes you can hope to make to feel healthier day after day.

Less Processed Food

The trouble with processed food is that it is so ubiquitous that it is challenging to make sure that you are actually going to do away with it. That’s for the simple reason that you might not always be aware that you are eating it, either because manufacturers don’t always make it clear or because you have just snacked on it without really thinking about it. So changing this is going to require that you are a little more mindful of what you are eating at all times. As long as you can be sure of that, you should find that you are going to be eating a lot healthier, and once you are eating better it means you will feel better in yourself in no time at all. Avoid processed food and go instead for natural, whole foods – that is the way to a healthier life.

Fewer Toxins

You’ll find that there are toxins in many things and that you need to make sure you avoid them as best as you can if you want to be healthier. When you have a lot of toxins in your body, it can lead to your body not functioning properly, and ultimately you will feel a lot worse off for it too. So make sure that you are not putting excess poisons into your body if you can help it. You might find this difficult at first, especially if you are particularly prone to something like smoking or drinking alcohol. But by switching to the best vape juice or trying to avoid alcohol you will find that you are helping your body become much healthier indeed.

More Rigorous Training

If you don’t already train your body every day, you should consider starting to do that. Only by keeping on top of your physical training can you hope to keep yourself feeling healthy, so it’s important that you do this every day. You’ll also need to think about being much more rigorous with yourself than you may have been previously, as that is going to really make a difference to how you feel.
