Precautions help children avoid toxics Eating habits, body size, respiration put them at greater risk The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Toxic materials are especially harmful to children. They eat, drink and breathe more than adults in relation to their body size, the state Department of Health said. That means they are at greater risk for health problems from toxic chemicals. Keeping indoor air healthy • Keep your home and car smoke-free and never smoke near children. Second-hand smoke increases the risk of heart disease, lung cancer and asthma, and is linked to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. • Keep wood smoke out. Replace older wood stoves with cleaner gas, pellet or certified wood stoves. • Keep it clean. Vacuum and dust regularly. Dust using a wet rag and use a vacuum with a HEPA filter if you can. Dust particles may

contain toxic chemicals. • Keep mold away. Mold can grow in wet places. Repair water leaks and dry wet areas right away. Prevent moisture by using kitchen and bathroom fans that vent to the outdoors. • Keep it aired out. Air out your whole house regularly. Fresh air reduces the concentration of contaminants. • Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Never use gasolinepowered equipment or burn charcoal inside. Never use a gas oven to heat your home. Install a carbon monoxide detector. • Test for radon. Radon gas is colorless and odorless, and occurs naturally. It can seep into your home from the ground. Test for radon with a home test kit. Reduce toxics in food and water • Wash fruits and vegetables. This removes dirt and chemical residues. Scrub produce that ha a skin with a brush or cloth. • Eat fish low in mercury. Some fish have less mercury than others. Good choices are salmon, cod, flounder, trout, tilapia and canned light tuna.

• Let tap water run. When water sits in pipes, it may pick up lead and other metals. Flush pipes by running cold water. • Use cold water. Use only cold water for drinking, cooking and making baby formula since hot water may contain higher levels of lead. (Municipalities issue yearly water quality reports.) • Test private well water. If you own a private well, test your drinking water every year for coliform bacteria and nitrate. Consider testing for arsenic. Use household products safely • Household products, such as cleaners and bug killers, can cause health problems. • Follow the instructions on the label. • Keep products out of the reach of children. • Avoid products labeled “danger” or “poison.” • Avoid using bug killer and “weed and feed” products. • Use safer options when you can. More information is at ecy.wa.gov/toxicfreetips. Use plastics wisely

Sweet Savings Sweet Pea

• Some plastic bottles, cups, containers, toys and pacifiers are made with the chemicals biphenol A (BPA) and phthalates. They may be toxic when released by heat or when the product is scratched. • Choose food and beverage containers that are BPA-free, such as glass or stainless steel. • Avoid putting hot liquids or foods into plastic food containers. • Avoid putting plastics in the microwave or dishwasher. • Avoid cooking or storing food and beverages in plastics marked with recycling codes 3, 6 and 7. Prevent lead poisoning • Lead and dust chips from paint in homes and buildings constructed before 1978 are the biggest sources of lead exposure. • Wash toys, pacifiers and bottles often with soap and water to reduce exposure to dust and chips. • Vacuum and damp dust regularly. • Keep children away

from peeling paint. • Remove shoes when going inside to avoid tracking in soil that may contain lead and other toxics. • Use lead-safe work practices when renovating or doing home repairs on paint that may contain lead. Wash hands well and often • Washing hands with soap and water gets rid of germs, lead, arsenic, pesticides and other toxics.

Tips for making sleep safer Reading helps child development The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Reading with your child can help the child develop in many different ways. Parents are the child’s first teacher and time spent with baby is important, the state Department of Health said. Some tips: • A child learns best in a loving, encouraging and helping environment, so hold the child in your lap while reading. • Let the child choose the book and decide when to turn the pages. • Choose books that help the child explore the world around him or her. • Keep the child’s body active by letting baby turn the pages. An older child can act out stories as they are read. • Play, talk, read and write with the child. That will help baby understand that the words on the page mean something.

Some recommended books for babies and toddlers, from Barnes and Noble and goodreads.com: • “Llama Llama Nighty-Night,” by Anna Dewdney • “Guess How Much I Love You,” by Sam McBratney • “Dr. Seuss’s ABC,” by Dr. Seuss • “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” by Eric Carle • “Quack! Quack!” by Roger Priddy

Home safety tips offered Safety brochure addresses The Chronicle

OLYMPIA — Parents can do a number of simple things to help their child stay safe in the home and car. According to the state Department of Health, parents can reduce the chance of injury by: • Always putting baby on his or her back to sleep. • Making sure the child is buckled up correctly in a car seat for every ride. • Keeping items small enough to fit in a toilet paper tube away from the baby, to reduce choking risk. • Staying with the baby every second while the baby is in the bathtub or near water.

• Putting safety gates at the top and bottoms of stairs and in doorways to rooms that aren’t child-proofed. • Keeping cleaners, poisons, vitamins and medications locked up or on a high shelf. • Putting plastic covers on electrical outlets and latches on cupboards, drawers and toilets. • Keeping furniture away from windows so baby can’t climb up and fall out. • Attaching tall or heavy furniture to the wall or keeping baby away from it. • Keeping baby away from the stove, oven and microwave, and away from hot foods and drinks. • Having at least one working smoke detector on each level of the home, and making sure the battery works.

emergencies and illnesses Hospital offers help The Chronicle SEATTLE — A safety brochure, “Treating Childhood Emergencies and Illnesses,” is available on the state Department of Health website. The Seattle Children’s Hospital

publication can be found at www.doh.wa.gov. Topics covered include what to do for animal bites, asthma attacks, bleeding, burns, dental emergencies, eye wounds, falls, head injuries, insect bites and stings, poisoning, seizures, various illnesses and medicines.

Early start thwarts tooth decay The Chronicle OLYMPIA — Germs cause cavities and can be spread from parents to infants and toddlers. Foods and drinks fee germs, which make acids and cause cavities, the Washington Dental Service Foundation said. Tooth decay can be stopped if it is caught early. To prevent tooth decay • Set a good example. Brush, floss and

have regular checkups. • Use fluoride to prevent and heal early tooth decay. • Consult with your doctor or dentist about fluoride drops or tablets if your water system doesn’t contain fluoride. Fluoride varnish and sealants also are available. • Choose tooth-healthy snacks such as cheese, fruits and vegetables. Avoid snacking or sipping on sweet liquids throughout the day. • Drink lots of water after meals and snacks to help clean teeth.

In a rush? Try an apple or a pear The Chronicle OMAK — If you’re in a rush, trying to tend to baby while still putting a good meal on the table, check out the Washington Apple Commission’s website, www.bestapples.com. The site features a variety of information about Washington apples, including recipes for every occasion. The recipe section can be reached by clicking the “Recipes” tab at the top. In addition, the searchable site offers a special section for children, with children’s apple art, fun facts, games and activities, recipes and more. It can be reached via the “Kids” tab. A medium apple contains 80 calories, no fat, no sodium, 170 mg of potassium, 22 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of dietary fiber, 8 percent of the daily allowance of vitamin C and 2 percent of the daily allowance of iron. Another website that features locally grown, good-fo-your-baby fruit is www.usapears.com, offered by USA Pears and the Pear Bureau Northwest. The searchable site also features recipes, children’s information, nutrition facts and tips on ripening pears.

Need something to do? Make a mess Kitchen staples can become fun for play The Chronicle OMAK — Need something to keep your little one occupied? Whip up a batch of finger paint or play dough. Finger paint No. 1 Mix 2 cups flour and 2 teaspoons salt. Add 2 1/2 cups cold water and stir until smooth. Gradually add 2 cups boiling water. Boil until smooth and thick, stirring constantly. Add food coloring and stir until smooth. Cool. Play dough Mix together in a medium, nonstick pot: 1 cup white flour 1/4 cup salt 2 Tbs. cream of tartar Combine and add: 1 cup cold water

2 tsp. food coloring (may omit) 1 Tbs. cooking oil Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes. It will look globby. When it forms a ball in the pot, remove from heat and turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead briefly. Cool and store in an airtight container (a cottage cheese or margarine tub will hold it) or a zippered plastic bag. It is edible, but

not tasty. It keeps, unrefrigerated, for several weeks. Be sure to provide plenty of cookie cutters, a rolling pin, plastic knives, bottle caps and other items for cutting and shaping. This dough cleans up well. If a bit of it does dry on a surface, pick or chip off as much as possible, then remove the rest with a damp rag or non-abrasive scrubber. If it’s left uncolored, it won’t stain.
