Make It A Safe and Healthy Christmas with Natural Toys

Make it a Safe and Healthy Christmas
The EPA tells us that there are 87,000 chemicals which we (and our children) are exposed to. Many of us involved in the health care professions believe that the startling rise in the number of children being diagnosed with Asthma (doubled since 1980), Autism (CDC says 1 per 100 kids, as opposed to 2 per 10,000 20 years ago), Allergies , Childhood Cancers etc is directly related to these toxic chemicals. I know what you are saying….this is a Christmas message?….Where’s the joy and the Christmas spirit?
Well, here it is. I have been a pediatric registered nurse for 32 years and I believe there are many things we can do to improve the health of our children which starts with minimizing their exposure to these chemicals. As the founder of green children’s health expos (Saving Our Kids, Healing Our Planet), I recommend we feed our kids more organic foods, decrease their intake of processed foods, use green cleaning products in our homes and schools and buy toys made from natural and organic materials.
From the first teething ring in infancy to the scrunchy toys toddlers play with, to the fun games enjoyed by preschoolers, we need toys that not only spark the imagination but ones that are free of toxic substances.
Rosie Hippo is the premier source for natural and organic toys and children’s gifts.
