We will have the tooth fairy come to our center on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 9:00am. She will explain all about taking care of our teeth and how important it is to brush them regularly. She will bring us toothbrushes! Pediatric Dentistry provides her to make sure we use proper care with our teeth.
Presidents Day originated in 1885 in the United States when it was first celebrated as a federal holiday to honor the birthday of George Washington, commander of the Continental Army during the American Revolution and the first president of the United States.
Today it is widely viewed as a day to celebrate all United States presidents, past and present.
PRESIDENTS DAY 2020 IS ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17.
The Children's Spot will be closed on this holiday.

FEBRUARY 14 ValentinesDay Parties at 10:00am
Each year on February 14, people exchange cards, candy or flowers with their special "valentine". St. Valentine's Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. This was the official start of their springtime. It's thought that as part of the celebrations, boys drew names of girls from a box.
This is an annual festival to celebrate romantic love, friendship and admiration. Every year on February 14, people celebrate this day by sending messages of love and affection to partners, family and firends.

Choosing Healthy Snacks for Kids
While meals make up the majority of a child's nutritional intake, most children eat at least one snack per day. While many of the most commonly offered kids' snacks tend to be of lower nutritional value than meals, snacks still can support—or even enhance—your child's overall healthy eating plan. Here's how:
Use snack times as a way to increase fruits and vegetable intake. Most kids do not eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables. Snack times offer a great opportunity to increase access and exposure to these nutrient-dense foods. Consider pairing them up with dairy products or dairy substitutes (such as grapes and cheese) lean proteins (such as celery and peanut butter), or whole-grain cereals and bread (such as banana sandwich on whole grain bread).
Keep a range of healthy foods handy at home. It is much easier to make easy, healthy snacks when you keep a few key items stocked at home. Ideas include different types of raw vegetables and fruit, yogurt dip, hummus, and cheese sticks.
Avoid processed foods and added sugars. Processed foods (made in a factory and sold in bags and boxes) do not have many nutrients and often have a lot of added sugar and salt. In addition, children may become hungry faster after eating processed foods. See Snacks & Sugary Foods in School: AAP Policy Explained for more information.
Teach your children to eat a rainbow of colors. Arrange your children's foods to show the beauty of fresh, brightly colored foods. Talk about the farms where food comes from and the farmers who help grow it.
