Developing Good Eating Habits in Children
Well, it depends on the age of the child. Little kids who are, like, in the eighteen month to twenty-four month age range seem to go on almost no calories at all because they're so busy exploring the world. You think they're running on fumes sometimes. So that's a normal child development stage; all of my kids went through that, and I see kids go through it all the time, so that's not a time to be concerned.
There are some children, as they get older, though, who have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. Sometimes it's a disorder, sometimes it's just a sensitivity. Some kids are very sensitive to smell, some kids are very sensitive to taste, and some are very sensitive to the texture of the food in their mouths. So if you are noticing that kids can't take food that has a lot of texture to it, you might start to realize that that body is receiving the texture, the feel in the mouth of the food, like, a thousand times more than the average person perceives it. And that's a high sensory sensitivity. So don't get mad at these kids, because they're actually sometimes being tortured by what their senses are telling them. And occupational therapists can help kids with this, so this is a really good opportunity to have your child evaluated by an occupational therapist to see if there's something they can do to give little increments of different types of food to the child so that, in stages, they get a little bit more tolerance for the foods built up.
Some people just live with this with their children, and they just don't require them to sit at the table when the food smells are intense. I have one little girl whose parents I coached, she just takes her plate in the other room and she can eat where there aren't other plates around. She can eat her own plate, but she can't be in the smell of the other food. Isn't that interesting? And she can't be too close to the kitchen. So if they allow her to take her food someplace else, she can eat. So there's all kinds of ranges.
Sometimes kids are picky just because there's been a lot of pressure put on them to eat food. So try not to pressure. Sit down, enjoy your own food, put good food in front of the children, allow them time to eat, take the food away, and don't make a big deal about whether they eat or not. If they're hungry an hour later, provide a snack. Really, the natural way of eating for children is to graze, so they should have lots of different small meals during the day. A three meal a day model isn't really built for growing children. So kind of relax about this. Control your own sense of anxiety around what they eat; don't express it to your children, and just offer food when they're hungry. That's really the best way to prevent an eating disorder later on down the road.
PHOTONIC - ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE TRANSMISSION & CONVERSION PROPULSION (Method 15b)
“Antigravity” Method 15b of 15 – PHOTONIC - ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE TRANSMISSION & CONVERSION PROPULSION (Method 15B) Group VIA
ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE CONVERSION PROPULSION Methodology can be achieved mechanically or electrically, and can be broken down further into three subdivisions:-
a) Direct Mechanical Conversion, b) Electrical Conversion and c) Mechanical Pressure Electric Conversion.
Type a) Direct Mechanical Conversion example include Solar thermal rockets which could make use of solar power to directly heat reaction mass, and therefore does not require an electrical generator as most other forms of solar-powered propulsion do.
The engine thrust is directly related to the surface area of the solar collector and to the local intensity of the solar radiation. The device shown is a good example of a solar thermal rocket.
Type c) Mechanical Pressure Electric Conversion Propulsion has already been described in Method 15a but grouped here as well because the electrical energy required for laser propulsion can be converted from solar cells or other devices in space. Masers could be used to power a painted conventional solar sail, with a layer of chemicals designed to evaporate when struck by microwave radiation.
Type b) Electrical conversion examples include solar cells that receive electromagnetic radiation mainly in the visible spectrum and convert it into electrical energy that can then power a propulsive force.
Electromagnetic radiation including ‘light’ is a self propagating wave with both magnetic and electrical components. Radio waves are also Electromagnetic waves of much lower frequency than visible light.
Wireless power transfer by resonant inductive coupling with a continuous wave MF (Medium Frequency-short wave) oscillator. (Tesla Coil)
Continuing on from the right and towards the visible light spectrum, we now move from LF to MF, the Medium Frequency Band, which is slightly higher than the Medium Wave (MW) radio band, and within the shortwave region, a frequency of approximately 2.2 MHz.
This small Tesla coil a fairly typical air core design is of a type that was originally developed by Tesla to be used for wireless power transmission and reception.
This particular coil is powered by a primary high-voltage source of 5000VRMS at only 15 Watts, contains some high voltage capacitors, and a quenched spark gap which self oscillates the primary circuit at a rate that equals the operating frequency required to excite the LC (inductance-capacitance) tank circuit, with periodic bursts of high frequency current. The multiple-layer primary helical coil is tuned to resonate at the same frequency as the secondary LC circuit. Excited by resonant inductive coupling, creating a dual-tuned resonant air-core transformer. The secondary elevated helical coil is connected to the terminal capacitance or "top load" sphere. The terminal capacitance forms one 'plate' of a capacitor, the ground or earth becomes the other 'plate' and is capable of continuous wave oscillation of non-radiating electromagnetic field energy, which a Tesla coil receiver is designed to receive. I now put the secondary back, which is a grounded quarter wave tuned secondary coil, and have on the other side of the room a virtually identical receiver coil which is in resonance with the transmitter. In this system devised by Tesla, a connection to the earth is essential, and the receiver coil shown is illuminating a combination of common GLS 240V 15W mains voltage and low voltage light sources that includes a 14W Fluorescent lamp, the receiver is energized through the earth while an equivalent electrical displacement occurs in the air. It was an extension of the transmission through a single wire without return that convinced Tesla that distance was of no consequence and energy could be conveyed from one to any point of the globe, in any desired amount.
This ITP diet chart, if strictly followed can work wonders for an ITP patient. It is a balanced diet that is enough to fuel the human body for proper functioning. There are different foods under all the three categories. If you eat the foods in PLATE A, you won’t need the other plates. Even if you do, your tendency to eat the foods in PLATE B will go down by 75%. PLATE C has a list of foods which are not good for ITP.
