Create healthy, easy snacks

One of the things I really look forward to each summer is our grandchildren's vacation away from their parents. They spend this time with their grandparents in Hinesville and seem as equally excited to be here as we are to have them.

Don't fret odd; harmless behavior

Q: Our 12-year-old daughter seems driven to run in circles. For years now, every day, often many times a day, she suddenly will start jogging in a big circle around the family room or anywhere else in the house when the urge strikes. She stops when one of us tells her to stop, but a bit later she's off again. We've sent her outside to run many times, but that doesn't help either. While this may sound like a minor problem, it is so strange and it's most certainly driving us nuts. Help!

WIC provides healthy food, education

Childcare agencies and parents should encourage healthy lifestyles among children with extra emphasis on proper nutrition and physical fitness. And, as far as proper nutrition goes, pediatricians often advise expectant mothers to breastfeed their babies because this gives infants the right balance of nutrients and, with the assistance of vaccinations, helps their immune systems develop.

Boys will be boys, squash bugs

Q: I feel silly for asking, but what is your position on children killing bugs? I do not know if this is just 4-year-old boy behavior, but my son seems rather fascinated with bug-killing.
