Community Events, Fundraisers and Family Activities in Milton and Halton Region for November 2017

So many wonderful events coming up in November to help you begin the holiday festivities. From charity events to help you with your Christmas shopping or to help welcome the big man in red, there is a number of things for the whole family to enjoy. We also remember those who have died fighting for our freedom this month.

Nutrition Facts 101

Nutrition facts tables are very daunting to many. Long lists of confusing ingredients and conflicting serving sizes lead tons of us to avoid reading these important tables. Nutrition fact tables should never be overlooked especially if we are looking out for allergens. Thankfully for us, Health Canada is changing the laws on how manufacturers have to display nutrition facts! Starting in 2017 and over the next few years, you will start to notice differences that will make our lives much easier!

Signs Your Child May Have a Concussion

Extra curricular activities keep our kids busy all year round. Hockey, soccer, karate, just to name a few are a lot fun and great for our kids to participate in. However, sometimes they can get a little scary. Once in awhile a sports related injury can lead to a concussion. Do you know what to look for if your child gets hurt and bangs their head.

Cough and Cold Management

The colder weather is around the corner and the inevitable cold and flu season is not far behind.

Spooktacular Activities to Celebrate Halloween

Check out these spooky but fun activities to do with your little ones this Halloween.

Naturopathic Cold and Flu Treatment and Prevention!

Every year many of us spend at least 3 or 4 days (and most likely more) a month feeling a bit “under the weather” or “fighting off” something, making these dreary months even more difficult to enjoy. This year it’s time to make a GOAL to stay healthy and bacteria free!

Loss of a Twin

You get the news that you are pregnant with twins and then all of a sudden the joy you are feeling is taken away when the doctor tells you, you have lost one of them. "How could we go from such excitement and joy to a feeling complete of despair?"

The passage of time after a loss

Losing a child is not something you ever really "get over". It stays with you every day and you learn to live with the loss. Special thank you to Angie Stenback from The WOMB who has experienced this grief and has openly shared her story and feelings with us.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Spooktacular Cookies

Pumpkin is the flavour of fall, and what better way to celebrate fall than to celebrate Halloween too! These cookies are gluten free, and can also be made dairy free by using dairy free chocolate chips. My favourite brand of dairy free chocolate chips is Enjoy Life.
You can turn any baking recipe into a Halloween themed mummy with a few melted white chocolate chips!
