Kindergarten is a big step. Off to school, for the first time, can be stressful (and emotional) for both parents and kids! Some helpful tips:
*Parents, are you nervous? Try not to let it show.
*Build up your kids’ self-esteem before they head to the classroom.
*Don’t forget the first day is a big deal for you (as your child).

Weight Loss Myth: Eating late at night is bad.
Not necessarily. Eating at night is like eating at any other time of the day.

Several studies showing that exercise is a relatively small part in weight loss.
In reality, it’s more like 80% nutrition and 20% exercise…
