Дезодорант для детей, чем пользоваться?

Моей дочке исполнилось 8 лет и в один прекрасный день я заметила очень сильный запах пота. Половое созревание началось... На многих интернет форумах советуют учить детей пользоваться  дезодорантами. Но, в последнее время было столько научных исследований о вреде этих самых дезодорантов, что я сама уже перестала ими пользоваться уже несколько лет. Только в редких случаях типа важных встреч или вечеринок.

О вреде дезодорантов можете почитать Здесь

Я сама пользуюсь уже много лет кристал камнем и дала дочке попробовать. Вечером душ, по мокрой коже проводите камнем несколько раз и даете высохнуть самой, не вытирать полотенцем. И утром дочка проснулась без запаха, вечером пришла домой после дня в школе и тренировки Джиу Джитсу- мокрая насквозь, но без запаха! С тех пор и напоминать не надо, пользуется с большим ажиотажем. 
Буду пробовать разводить с водой и ступни обрабатывать, а то ноги даже в кожаной обуви потеют сильно и начинают вонять. 

Кристалл Свежести (алунит) – 100% натуральный продукт горно-вулканического происхождения. Это забытое вещество успешно применялось нашими бабушками, и было известно как «квасцы» алюмо-калиевые. Химическая формула продукта - Potassium Alum - KAl(SO4)2Ч 12H2O - 12-водный!!!
Кристалл берется из природной среды в натуральном виде, вмешательство человека лишь в отсечении лишнего, шлифовке и упаковке. Кристалл очень экономичен: одной упаковки весом 120 грамм одному человеку при ежедневном пользовании хватает на 2 – 2.5 года, средний расход – 2–3 грамма в месяц. «Кристалл» по мере пользования уменьшается в размерах, но сохраняет свою эффективность вплоть до полного своего исчезновения. Если Вы уронили Кристалл и он разбился –соберите осколки, растворите в воде и пользуйтесь жидким вариантом Кристалла.
Кристалл не имеет срока годности. Кристалл легок и компактен, незаменим в поездках и путешествиях.
Кристалл так же помогает бороться с проблемами кожи у подростков, мужчины могут пользоваться им после бритья, предупреждая раздражение, он обладает кровоостанавливающим эффектом и способствует заживлению порезов, помогает бороться с герпесом и молочницей, раствором «Кристалла» можно полоскать горло при ангине и рот при парадонтозе, он устраняет аллергический зуд, зуд и отечность после укусов комаров и мошек, уничтожает запахи лука, чеснока, рыбы, отбеливателя с Ваших рук.
• Абсолютно безвреден для организма, так как в отличие от многих современных дезодорантов не содержит хлоргидрат алюминия, и прочие вредные химические субстанции. • В нем отсутствуют эмульгаторы, закупоривающие поры и потовые протоки, нарушающие функцию потовых желез. • Не содержит спирта, не вызывает раздражения или аллергии. • Не имеет собственного запаха и не содержит отдушек, которые конкурировали бы с Вашим парфюмом. • В его состав не входят масла, оставляющие пятна на одежде. • Единственный безвредный дезодорант, разрешенный к применению беременным и кормящим женщинам


Камень купила года три назад и думаю еще на столько же  хватит. Отличное вложение!
Я покупала на Амазоне, по линку доставка по Британии бесплатно.

Proud Mummy Moment :)

My little V is using a communication devise to speak. Or rather is learning to use it ;)
Today was very very very proud mummy moment. She can not speak. The only word she is able to say is 'Mama'. She can't speak due to oropharyngeal dysphagia as one of the symptoms of her undiagnosed neuromuscular disorder. Not being able to speak is a missing link in language development. It so much harder to learn/understand the concept of letter-sound. Reading-writing etc. She will be 6 next month, she is in year1 in school. 
Today as she was fiddling with her communication devise, she spelled a short sentence and to be honest I did not expect her to be able to spell any single word except 'mom' and 'dad'. But OH MY did she surprise me, she actually spelled a sentence! And then she signed what she wrote. Love her to bits!
Here is the video of her doing it :)

Very tasty banana blueberry buckwheat bread/cake

Finally, I got together a recipe for a cake made with 100% buckwheat flour and no sugar. It is moist but soft and airy. Not a dense bric like most of its kind.
From my search on internet, all recipes I've found call for half amount (or less) of buckwheat flour and some sort of other gluten free variety. Or if it's all buckwheat, it is quite bitter, more savory or needs sugar added in quite a quantity.
This cake I fed to my fussy eaters as a main meal. You can easily pass it for one.
*EGGS.
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods money can buy - they are a natural source of many nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins and mindeals.
Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium and iodine. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, biotin, pantothenic acid and choline, and essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus.

*BLACK TREACLE
100gr of black treacle has 100% of your DVA of Iron. It is also high in calcium 50% of DVA, Magnesium and Potassium.

* BUCKWHEAT flour
1. Good source of high-quality, easily digestible proteins. This makes it an excellent meat substitute. High protein buckwheat flour is being studied for possible use in foods to reduce plasma cholesterol, body fat, and cholesterol gallstones.
2.  Fat alternative. Buckwheat starch can also act as a fat alternative in processed foods.
3. May help diabetes.
New evidence has found that buckwheat may be helpful in the management of diabetes according to Canadian researchers in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
With a glycemic index of 54, it lowers blood sugars more slowly than rice or wheat products.
4. Great for the digestion.
5.Buckwheat contains no gluten and is not a grain. It is therefore great for celiacs and those on grain free and gluten sensitive diets.
And many many more.
*FLAXSEED
Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.
*BANANA AND BLUEBERRY
If you don't know, just Google.
 
So here it comes:
5 over rippend bananas
2 eggs
1/2 cup of Apple butter click for the recipe or use apple sauce.
1/2 cup of milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tbsp of Stevia
1 tbsp of Lyle's Black Treacle (or molasses)
Juice of one lime
2 cups of Buckwheat flour
2 tbsp of ground Flaxseed
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1to 2 cups of blueberries
1 tbsp of cinnamon IF using applesauce instead of Apple butter.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350c or gas mark 6 (just a guide).
Mash bananas with a juice of one lime. Add bitten eggs, vanilla, apple butter, milk, treacle, stevia and beat all together for a couple of minutes. Then slowly add flour, flaxseed, salt, baking soda and powder, and cinnamon if using.
Once all beaten together, fold in blueberries.
Cake or loaf tin, grease with butter or put in baking paper to prevent sticking. Pour the mixture in and put in an oven for 45-50 minutes, check with a toothpick or knife if it's ready. You know when you stab it, the cake, nothing should be stuck to the toothpick.
I did sprinkle it with icing sugar this time for kids :)
Enjoy! And please come back to tell me if you liked it :)
