With Calgary students returning to the classroom in a few short weeks, back-to-school shopping is a top priority for parents. While students may have strong ideas about what backpack they want to be sporting for the new year, to prevent long-term injuries, Dr. Angela Pucci urges parents to consider features, other than aesthetics, when selecting backpacks.
“Kids are super resilient, let’s keep them that way by treating their little bodies properly,” Dr. Pucci explains. Research, including a 2010 study from the University of California, San Diego, indicates that too heavy backpacks significantly increases back pain in children. With the body out of proper alignment when carrying a heavy backpack, shoulders, hips and knees also are strained.
The kids cookbook for kids who can't yet read! The Cook By Colours cookbook (by a western Canadian author) comes with a complete set of measuring cups and measuring spoons which are colour-coded to the illustrated recipes found in the book.
Spend some quality family time away from those always-on screens and monitors and help your little chef learn some necessary life skills while you make some lasting memories! Cook by Colours includes 25 kid-favourite recipes and a set of measuring cups and measuring spoons. Each size of measuring cup or spoon is a different bright colour that allows them to provide recipes which are based on pictures rather than words.
