Kids love smoothies and with managing a busy treatment schedule, they provide a fruit and vegetable packed quick meal on the  go with minimum preparation time and easy clean up.  The smoothie “shakes” are also a great way to get some antioxidant rich vegetables and additives into kids with finicky palates.  Flax seed extract and kale, for example, have strong flavors that many kids turn their nose up to.  But, by being a little creative with various frozen fruits and all natural fruit juices – such as apple and pomegranate – you can get past the “yuckies” and pack a balanced, high energy meal into one glass.
There are many smoothie makers on the market available to order from that come with fitted to go cups (Magic Bullet MBR-1701 17-Piece Express Mixing Set  - additional mugs can be ordered), but any high powered blender and washable tumblers available in most supermarkets and department stores are all you need.  For families in lodging, packing a smoothie maker ready to plug into a kitchen outlet, can save precious time for early morning starts as well as be economical.  Many smoothie retail outlets are expensive and actually may contain high fructose corn syrup and other additives that are not recommended for children in treatment.  Alternatively, there are some great bottled products that are both all natural and organic such as available at many supermarkets and convenience stores.  Still be sure to check the labels and be mindful that many mass produced products may serve well as a supplements but may not contain proteins and other essential nutrients to contribute to balanced eating.
Freezing your own fruit is also an economical way to preserve and make use of over-ripened fruits.  See ideas and tips on freezing fruit:

Think about pre-mixing family favorites in freezer storage bags or a vacuum pack sealer as a time saver – bananas, forest fruits and ripened mango make a great combination to freeze together.  Try using your blender unit as the portion measure – so all you have to do is grab a pack and flip a switch.   Many health food supermarkets have pre-packaged, organic frozen mixed fruits already portioned for smoothie making at pretty fair price points.  Trader Joe’s freezer section (check for your local retail outlet) has some great ready packed alternatives.  Also, take advantage of seasonal fruits and farmers markets.  We have a bumper crop of NJ blueberries and peaches this year - they are both very freezer friendly and going at greatly reduced market prices this summer!
Long shelf natural protein additives (both dairy and non-dairy) and avocado are a great way to balance out the meal and give your smoothies the “milk-shake” texture appealing to kids’ palates. Almond milk, soy milk, Greek yogurt and organic milk are all great sources. Greek yogurt and milk products actually can also be frozen for longer life (although you may find a consistency change, the blending process will bring them back to shape). See this guide  for tips on freezing dairy products.  There are many powdered additives on the market but some are not easily digestible and may have some products not recommended for kids.  Be sure to check labels for FDA approvals and consult your doctor or a nutritionist to be sure that you are making positive choices for your child’s diet.
Vegetarian Times is a great resource for recipe ideas. Check out this VT article for this tasty smoothie recipe idea with blueberries, avocado and beets (one of the “yuckies”):
Other websites via StumbleUpon under search Smoothie Recipes can also be sourced. Be sure to follow Give2Kids: (link StumbleUpon site) to continue to spread the word about the Donate Your Car Program. ( Ron- please edit to your standard to increase traffic etc.)
Raw honey, agave nectar (the ‘raw” form only) and other fruit sugars can sweeten up your vegetable packed smoothies as well. Also keep in mind that Stevia is a healthy alternative sweetener. And remember that brown (over-ripened) bananas add extra all natural sweetness!  Look out for the next posting for some other ideas on how to use them and other leftovers in the next posting “When Bananas go Brown: Alternative kid friendly (not so slow) cooking ideas for left overs!”.

Quick Snack Packs & Meals for Families Managing a Busy Treatment Schedule

There are many pre-packaged kids meals on the market that save time for pressured families on the go or in lodging during treatments with limited cooking facilities. But a closer look at the nutritional labels show that many of the mass market brands are very high in sodium, corn syrup, saturated fats and nitrites/ preservatives which are detrimental to children in treatment. Other obstacles are children with special dietary needs such a gluten sensitivity and food allergies. Having some long shelf and freezer staples can make all of the difference relieving some of the pressure from your schedule as well as provide healthful eating for the whole family.The following are some ready available products  in most supermarket health food and gluten free sections or can be ordered in bulk from some major online retailers such as
Annie’s Organics offers ready made on the go snack packs, organic kid friendly bagged snacks, long shelf and gluten free products a well as frozen meals that can easily be prepared in efficiency kitchenettes with a microwave or stove top or as a quick meal for busy days.  See for products available, recipes and ideas for meals on the go.
Many vendors at airports, train stations, bus stations, hospital cafeterias and children’s activity centers are carrying healthy alternative snack packs along side of the usual “junk food” offerings. Look for the Snack Smart line by Centerplate which packages balanced,  organic and gluten free alternatives.
Sabra Foods, available in all major supermarkets, makes hummus minis and other dips and spreads that can be paired with organic low sodium corn chips, whole grain breads, organic baby carrots, and other ready cut vegies.
See website for products available and recipe ideas.
Long shelf organic soups such as Imagine Soups can be enjoyed hot or cold (on hot days try the sweet potato soup over ice and others for a pleasant summer alternative!). Paired with whole grain organic bread with organic nut butters (barring nut allergies), Greek yogurt spreads, herbed fresh goat cheese or hummus makes a great lunch or light dinner.
As we all know, fresh fruit on hand is long shelf in its natural packaging but with a busy schedule and limited time for shopping stocking up can lead to over ripened fruits and waste. There are proper ways to store fruits and vegetables to prevent premature spoiling. Wrapping the stem of a bunch of half ripened bananas with plastic wrap for example can double the shelf life.  Check out this article at the Vegetarian Times for compatible fruits and vegetables and storage tips:
Smoothies are also a great alternative meal on the go…look for the next posting about smoothie makers, freezing fruit, organic fruit ready packaged and long shelf and freezing healthy additives to pack a punch!

Always Buy Organic.

Nine (or more) different cancers are linked to certain pesticides. Look for the USDA-certified organic seal when purchasing.

There are some fruits and vegetables that are especially heavily sprayed with pesticides, while others aren’t, and don’t needto be purchased as organic. See more info about both kinds, in this post.

Serve Children as Many Fruits and Vegetables as Possible

Kids love berries, carrots, and other sweet fruits and veggies. But if they re started eating them early on, they will adapt to the taste of all kinds of vegetables… even broccoli.

Add Fiber to Your Diet

A child’s diet that is full of whole fruits and vegetables will go a long way towards providing good fiber intake.
Here is more information on other ways to add fiber, and how much.

Eat More Fish

Most parents have a concern about mercury content, and radioactivity in fish (and rightfully so). However, there are still safe and healthy fish to feed your children. They include:

Haddock (Atlantic)
Mackerel (N. Atlantic, Chub)
Perch (Ocean)
Salmon (Canned)
Salmon (Fresh)
Please note: Buy salmon “wild caught”, if at all possible. “Farm raised” salmon is far less desirable (although it is getting better than it used to be — please see this article).
Sole (Pacific)
Squid (Calamari)
Trout (Freshwater)
For more safe fish, please see this website.

Drink Green Tea

Your kids might love this healthy beverage with a little raw honey added to it, either cold or hot).

Green tea contains antioxidants (polyphenols), which:

- helps strengthen the immune system,
- may protect cells from DNA damage,
- and activate enzymes that slow down or curb tumors

Get Sufficient Vitamin D

Higher blood levels of Vitamin D have been shown to be associated with lower rates of a number of cancers. Make sure your children receive plenty of healthy sunshine.
If you live in colder climate with less sunshine in winter,
supplement with Vitamin D.
Ask your naturopathic doctor about the best dosage for your child. Regular medical doctors may not be able to correctly advise you on this, as they tend not to be well informed in nutritional therapies.

Kids (or Adults) Should Never Eat Trans Fats

Trans fatty acids is a manufactured oil that is used in many commercially baked and fried foods.

They increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Look on the ingredient label, and don’t buy anything containing “partially hydrogenated oil”, which is another name for trans fats.

Help Your Child Keep Toxin-Free

1. Use cleaning products that only contain organic ingredients;
2. Filter tap water (Berkey Filters are among the best –and have an option to filter out fluoride)
3. Avoid BPA and BPS (in most plastic packaging AND inside of cans).Look for plastic containers with the recycling numbers 1, 2, or 4, and cans labeled BPA-free.

Be Wary of Ionizing Radiation and Electromagnetic Fields 

In an early draft of a report issued in the spring of 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States recommended that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) be classified as a class B carcinogen. The report concluded:

“In conclusion, several studies showing leukemia, lymphoma and cancer of the nervous system in children exposed to EMF’s, supported by similar findings in adults in several occupational studies also involving electrical power frequency exposures, show a consistent pattern of response that suggest a causal link.”

There is plenty of evidence in the scientific literature that electromagnetic fields (from cell towers, electroninc devices, etc.) can be a worrisome and possibly, major cause of cancer.

Avoid x-rays (ionizing radiation) for your children if at all possible. Here is why.

Cellphones and Kids May Not Mix

Mobile phones have been classified as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” At the time of this writing, the final word is not out yet on the safety of childhood cellphone use.
However, it would be prudent to minimize your child’s use of cellphones, based on preliminary findings. Also, as an alternative, regular (corded) land lines are absolutely safe (but NOT cordless phones, which are even worse than cellphones).

Should Your Child Be Eating Foods Containing GMOs?

If you, or someone has a vehicle to donate, in NY, NJ or any other state, and would like to help us help kids with cancer, please click here.


by Ron Streeter

Many people still believe that GMOs have not been proven to be harmful
to humans.

I will do my best in this article to give you the latest studies, and
let you decide for yourself.

Here’s why children are at the highest risk from the potential toxicity of GMO foods:

Kids are more vulnerable to allergies
Kids are more vulnerable to digestive/allergy issues with milk
Kids are vulnerable to antibiotic resistant diseases
The fast-developing systems of kids are more susceptable

GMO Study

Because children’s bodies go through rapid growth development, scientists utilyzed young rats in an independent GMO study.

After just 10 days the rats displayed highly noticeable organ system damage, including:

- damaged digestive function and immune systems
- tinier brains, testicles and livers
- atrophing in the liver,
- and potential pre-cancerous intecell growth

Besides breakfast cereals, snacks, pizza, and much more, GMOs are hidden in many food products that you assumed were perfectly healthy for your children.

They include:


…and are hidden in many common ingredients,
in many, or most, commercially processed foods,
such as:
Amino Acids, Aspartame, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbate,
Vitamin C, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Flavorings (“natural” and “artificial”),
High Fructose Corn Syrup, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Lactic Acid,
Maltodextrins, Molasses, Monosodium Glutamate, Sucrose,
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP), Xanthan Gum, Vitamins, Yeast Products

Further sources of information:

10 Studies Demonstrating the Toxicity of GMOs

You may have heard that there are studies demonstrating GMOs are safe. You should know that two major ones have been retracted.

Very informative, 5 minute video on “The Alarming Truths About GMOs”

A graphic showing the so called “health” foods that either contain GMOs, or are owned by corporations that fund campaigns to resist GMO labeling.

Whatever your conclusions you’ve drawn from the above information: if there’s any doubt at all remaining about possible long-term toxicity in these foods, why would we feed them to our children? It’s one thing to gamble with our own health, but the developing bodies of children, who are more susceptible to food and other environmental toxins, is another matter.

How To Feed Your Child, Healthy Organic Food — On A Budget!

by Ron Streeter

To Donate Your Car NJ, truck or other vehicle, (in NJ, NY or any other state) please click here!


It IS Possible to Feed Your Children the BEST Foods, on a Budget!

Imagine how great it would be if you never ingested, inhaled or slathered anything toxic in or on your body? No pollution, fluoride, trans-fats, artificial dyes, gmo foods, etc. etc.? Never smoked, excessively drank, or did anything else that insulted your body? Consider for a moment how wonderful it would be if your body was clean and toxin-free?

Whether your children are currently healthy, or struggling with an illness, it’s never too late to begin making certain everything they consume, have applied or wear, are as pure and natural as possible… so they can enjoy much of the above toxin-free kind of life.

The earlier you start your child on a diet of natural, organic, non-processed, non-sugary foods, the sooner they will adapt to them. If they are already hooked on Fruit Loops and the like, you can gradually wean them off such artificial “foods”, and slowly introduce far superior, nutrient-rich foods.

This will not only keep them healthy (by strengthening their immune systems, etc.) it will also assist their bodies in the healing of any health challenges.

Great Sources of Information on Healthy Food for Your Kids

If you are not aware of all the great natural produce and other life-enhancing foods available to you, please see these websites for a great introduction:

In case you’re not aware: it is being increasingly understood that fluoridated water is NOT good for children — or you! Please see the following for more information:

“The World According To Monsanto” 
Monsanto is a multi-national corporation that is destroying our food supply with highly toxic pesticides, genetic modification of food plants, and their insidious patenting of seeds.

Affording Good Food

There are many among us today who are struggling with a corrupted economy, and may feel
that buying healthy, organic food too expensive.

Here are some tips:

Not all healthy food HAS to be organic. Some plants (such as broccoli) have a natural
plant covering on them, that protects its florets and stems from pesticides.

In addition to broccoli, here are some other great fruits and vegetables you don’t have to buy as organic:

sweet corn (non-gmo)
sweet peas
kiwi fruit
sweet potatoes
sweet onions

For more information on the above, PLUS the foods you MUST buy as organic, please click here.

To find the best prices for organic foods, please check around in your community for
regional markets, and ask the purveyors if there produce is organic (they will usually have signs that
already say “Organic”). There are also usually farm co-op buying groups, that you can buy
organic produce for less. For information on farms in your area that offer the above, please click here:

And finally, if you give your children milk: please consider whole pasteurized goat milk, as opposed to cow’s milk. It generaly is digested much better. There is also nut and other alternative “milks” (such as almond, rice and coconut) that your children may like. But please consider only buying the non- sweetened varieties, and if necessary for taste, adding Stevia as a natural, safe sweetener, to them.

Best of success with your pursuit of a safe, natural and very healthy lifestyle, from the American Children’s Cancer Association!
