How much food for your toddler?
Posted: May 04, 2016

Toddlers have just made the leap from babyhood to the upright world of exploration. The 12 to 24-month old child is becoming independent in wanting to feed and help dress themselves, and uses pointing as a way of letting us know what they want. Transitioning from baby food to table food usually occurs soon after the first birthday. Many parents wonder how much food is enough for their toddler, and what kinds of foods they should be offering.

May is Mental Health Month
Posted: May 04, 2016

For over 65 years, Mental Health America has led the observance of May is Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings. This year's theme for Mental Health Month is - Life with a Mental Illness - and calls on individuals to share what life with a mental illness feels like for them in words, pictures and video by tagging their social media posts with #mentalillnessfeelslike. Posts will be collected and displayed on a special page on MHA's website. Posting with the hashtag will allow people to speak up about their own experiences, to share their point of view with individuals who may be struggling to explain what they are going through, and help others figure out if they too are showing signs of a mental illness. Sharing is the key to breaking down the discrimination and stigma surrounding mental illnesses, and to show others that they are not alone in their feelings and their symptoms.
