An award-winning children’s picture book about coping with bullying

By Janet Ruth Heller

Because bullying is common in schools, children should read How the Moon Regained Her Shape before they attend school. This book is based on my own experiences with bullying when I began elementary school. I have a link to the e-book for reviewers in the next paragraph. Also, I can send you a hard copy of the book if you wish. Please let me know if you want a hard copy, and, if so, please send me the snail-mail address of your reviewer.

How the Moon Regained Her Shape by Janet Ruth Heller (Arbordale, 4th edition 2016) is a picture book about bullying influenced by Native American legends. This book is appropriate for children ages 2 to 10. This story explains why the moon changes shape and helps children deal with bullies. The link to the e-book for reviewers is The sun insults the moon, and the moon feels so badly hurt that she shrinks and leaves the sky. The moon turns to her comet friend and her many friends on earth to comfort her. Her friends include rabbits and Native Americans. Then she regains her full shape, happiness, and self-esteem, and she returns to her orbit. An educational appendix gives advice about bullying, scientific information about the moon, and ideas for related activities for children. Illustrator Ben Hodson won a Benjamin Franklin Award for this book?s artwork in 2007. How the Moon Regained Her Shape also won a Book Sense Pick (2006), a Children?s Choices award (2007), and a Gold Medal in the Moonbeam Children?s Book Awards (2007). The book was also a finalist for the Oregon Reading Association?s 2009 Patricia Gallagher Picture Book Award.

This book is available in hardcover, paperback, Spanish paperback, e-book, Spanish e-book, and iPad app. The hardback book is $15.95; the paperback is $9.95, the Spanish paperback is $9.95; the e-book is $6.95, and the Spanish e-book is $6.95.

1,2,3 Go – Colourful Lunchboxes

Lunchboxes, you need to pack them almost every day…but what should you put in them today? Will the kids eat them? Will they like them? What do I even have in the cupboard?
Lunchbox food is important, as it fuels kids throughout the afternoon in school and after school activities. Here is Foost’s 1,2,3 Go guide to make packing lunchboxes easy, nutritious and personalised!

Step 1: Choose a strength food (a protein for growth and strength)
roast meats, leftover pasta sauce, baked beans, hummus dip, boiled egg, tuna, salmon, cheese, yoghurt, tzatziki dip, nuts (if allowed)

Step 2: Add an energy food (wholegrains for energy and concentration)
brown or grainy bread, rolls, pita, wraps, crackers, rice, pasta, popcorn, quinoa

Step 3: add three colourful fruits and veggies (for excelling at anything and everything)
fresh fruit, frozen berries, fruit salad, carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, snow peas, fresh peas, baby carrots, red capsicum, celery sticks, spinach

Now every family is different and eats in a different way. You might like to make a sandwich with a strength food and salad and some fruit on the side. You might prefer to take last night’s leftover pasta and sauce. My kids like cheese crackers with their fruit and veggies on the side. How you put the lunch box together is up to you, but try to have one serve of strength, a couple of energy foods and three colours (i.e. green cucumber, red strawberries and some orange carrot).
Top tips:
– Involve your children in packing their lunch boxes. What orange/yellow would you like today? Banana, carrot sticks or grated carrot in your sandwich?
– Take your children shopping with you to buy lunch box supplies or cook with your child and make fruit based muffins or cookies
– Remember food safety and pack in an insulated bag with an ice pack
– Be organised – stock your cupboards, fruit bowl, fridge and freezer

“The Four Year Plan: Guaranteed to Get Your Kid Into The Best College”

This book has helped thousands of students in over 50 countries get into colleges like Harvard, Princeton, MIT, University of Texas, and more.

How? With our foolproof blueprint for high school success.

The ever-evolving high school expectations have confused students and parents, leaving them unclear on how to get college ready. Those that don’t adapt and know how to master high school find themselves defeated when it comes to approaching a top university. This feeling of defeat leaves little room for success, and very little college readiness.

Students that understand the new paradigm and who learn and study with confidence, have created an incredible academic career knowing exactly how to ultimately get into the college of their dreams.

Neha Gupta, founder of College Shortcuts and Elite Private Tutors has helped thousands of students excel in all areas of academic achievement, and her name has become synomymous with those looking to get accepted into the college of their dreams. With Neha, 95% of students have gotten into their top 3 schools.

“I wrote The Four Year Plan with over 20 valedictorians by my side. Every single chapter gives insight into what students need to do in each month of their high school career in order to succeed. This book speaks to teens directly, and helps them to navigate the noisy, stressful high school experience and have an action plan, strategy, and vision for their dreams.” – Neha Gupta

NIGHT is a beauty pillow company founded in 2015 that combines decades of experience in the bedding industry with innovative technology to engineer a true beauty sleep.

The NIGHT sleep system is comprised of two parts: (1) an oxygenated memory foam pillow and a (2) TriSilk™ pillowcase that uses a black hue to negate light, boosting melatonin production for deeper rest. The pillow + pillowcase work together to offer users a combination of sleep and beauty benefits.

The Sleep Benefits of a NIGHT Pillow:

Boost Your Melatonin production

The NIGHT pillow comes exclusively in a black hue to negate light and boost your body’s natural melatonin production so you sleep better.

Stay Supported

The open-cell memory foam pillow is made with more air inside of it to ditch the heaviness of traditional memory foam, yet still offer the same support and pressure-point alleviation for any sleep position.

Sleep Cooler

Oxygenated memory foam means that the NIGHT pillow was advanced engineered for optimal airflow to keep you cool all night long.

The Beauty Benefits of a NIGHT Pillow:

Fight breakouts

Did you know your pillow is bacterially indistinguishable from a toilet seat? And when you sleep on it, that bacteria gets rammed into your pores all night long? The fibers used in the NIGHT pillow sleep system aren’t food sources for bacteria, so all that gunk can’t live in there. Keep your pores clear, all night (and day) long.

Hydrate your skin and hair

Because they’re made from absorbent materials like cotton, other pillows suck moisture away from your skin and hair. The NIGHT pillow supports moisturized skin and hair by leaving natural moisture in its place, fighting split ends and wrinkles.

Increase the effectiveness of your skin products

Let your face creams rest on your skin, doing their job more effectively, when they aren’t getting sucked up by absorbent materials like cotton. Our mulberry silk pillowcase will leave your creams be.

Ditch the bedhead

95% mulberry silk means your hair won’t get caught up in friction while you sleep. Say goodnight to bedhead!

In addition to the NIGHT website, products are available to purchase at Bloomingdales,, and Bed Bath &Beyond. Learn more about NIGHT at

Molekule is the world’s only air purifier that doesn’t just capture harmful pollutants in the air–it actually destroys them.

Developed by Dr. Yogi Goswami over the past 20 years, Molekule uses PECO nanotechnology to combat allergens, mold, bacteria, and airborne chemicals on a molecular level. Most notably, PECO is not just capturing, but actually destroying these pollutants, including those up to 1000x smaller than particulates trapped by traditional HEPA filters. In a large room (600 square feet – a studio) Molekule can provide a full replacement of room air in under an hour, whereas in a smaller room (150 square feet – a bedroom), it can provide full air replacements in under 12 minutes.

A family-run company, Molekule grew out of a real personal need. Dr. Goswami’s son, Dilip, suffered from debilitating asthma and allergies, and the solutions on the market offered no relief. His son’s suffering inspired Dr. Goswami, a renowned solar energy scientist, to begin his journey into developing PECO, in an effort to create an air purification solution that could ease his symptoms. Today, Dilip and his sister Jaya have joined forces with their father to create Molekule and bring this life-changing technology to the public and alleviate suffering for the 700 million people worldwide who suffer from asthma and allergies.

Now a VC-backed startup, Molekule is available for sale in the U.S. Though Molekule currently ships within the U.S. only, it will expand into other countries in the future. Interested international buyers can sign up on this waitlist ( to be contacted when international shipping is available.

What you need to know if your child is injured at school

The obligatory photographs shared by proud parents on social media of their children in new school uniforms tells us it’s back to school time.

Understandably, parents need to know their children are safe at school, and if they are injured, remedies are available by way of compensation and rehabilitation when required.

The responsibility of teachers has been well established for over 120 years, with the relevant case law stating the duty of a schoolteacher is that of a “reasonably careful father.” (It took the courts 70 years to acknowledge the important role of mothers with the relevant case describing the duty as that of a “parent with many children.)

Children can be injured a result of boisterous play. The courts take a balanced approach with the view “rough and tumble” is an inevitable part of growing up and it would discourage independence if children were monitored too closely by teachers. That said, the key to successful compensation claims for injuries in school often centres upon lack of supervision.

Rob Dempsey, personal injury lawyer of Roythornes Solicitors discussed recent cases concerning accidents in schools:

“We recently secured compensation for a teenage boy who lost the tip of his finger during the school lunch break. He was amongst a group of boys trying to enter a classroom but was prevented from doing so by a group of girls. The girls slammed the door shut trapping the boys hand. The claim was successfully concluded on the basis that area of the school had no teachers supervising despite knowing children played there.

If children are purposefully injured by fellow pupils, and no element of supervision would have prevented this, it is still possible to pursue a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. We assist many clients in pursuit of these claims.”

As well as specific laws governing the safety of school premises, schools owe the same general duty of care to visitors in the same way as restaurants or supermarkets for example.

With regard to sports at school, it is generally felt all participants including children accept some level of risk, ruling out an injury claim. If however it is felt the injury arose as a result of actions one would not normally consent to then a claim can be brought.

In regards to sporting injuries, Dempsey added:

“We obtained compensation for a young footballer who was injured as a result of an obviously reckless tackle. The general need for adequate supervision extends to sporting activities. We are pursuing a case on behalf of a young gymnast who was injured whilst trampolining. We have obtained expert evidence which states there was inadequate supervision for that particular activity.

If a teacher knows or ought to know that pupils are carrying out dangerous activities, the school can be liable if they fail to prevent or supervise the activity. We secured compensation for a pupil who fractured his elbow in a wrestling match. Not only had the teacher failed to prevent the activity, he actively encouraged it as part of the lesson, asking the pupil to use his non dominant left hand against a left handed opponent.”

Once compensation is secured, money is paid into court and released to the child once he or she reaches 18. Not only will there be compensation for the injuries, the claim will include financial losses, usually incurred by the parents. It is possible to apply to the court for the money to be released early for the benefit of the child. This usually relates to educational improvement but we have successfully applied to the court for the release of funds to pay for a 17 year olds driving lessons and scooter.

If your child has been injured in school please contact us on 01775 764 150 for free advice. Alternatively, if you yourself were injured in school, and have not yet reached 21, it still may be possible for you to bring a claim.

Heading back to school after summer can be a challenge for kids. &

Sitting at a desk for several hours a day is especially difficult for students with extra energy. Bouncy Bands give students an outlet to release that energy in a quiet, non-distracting way. When students bounce their feet on the Bouncy Bands, the movement helps them calm down by releasing their extra energy, anxiety, or stress. In 2017, Clemson University researched the effects of Bouncy Bands on student’s time on task. Results found that students who use Bouncy Bands averaged 9% longer time on task than students who did not use Bouncy Bands.

Teachers and parents love Bouncy Bands because they help keep kids hands free and their minds focused. Not only are parents snatching these up for their students, but we’ve also had over 5,000 teacher’s get funding through Donor’s to purchase this essential back-to-school supply for their classrooms.

Bouncy Bands are available on Amazon, at, and at hundreds of retail stores around the world. Priced at $14.95, the heavy-duty bands come with 2 support pipes that keep the band in place so it won’t slide down to the floor with repeated use.

“Overcoming Back to School Blues”

Dr. Fran Walfish, Beverly Hills family and relationship psychotherapist, author, The Self-Aware Parent, and co-star on Sex Box, WE tv.

As summer winds down, back-to-school anxieties are in high gear. After months of playing, vacationing and spending time at home, it’s completely natural for a young child’s nerves to be on overdrive as the first day of class approaches.

Dr. Fran Walfish, the foremost Beverly Hills child and family psychotherapist, provides eight tips for parents on helping their children overcome the back-to-school blues while seamlessly easing into the school year. Dr. Walfish recommends the following:

· Implement a regular bed time and routine beginning 10 days before school starts. This will help your child’s body get into the groove of winding down and waking up at an earlier hour. When school begins, your child’s body, energy, and focus will be prepared for school’s physical and mental expectations and demands.

· Talk with your child about what to expect. Find out their grade level’s schedule. For example, “First, your class will gather on the yard and all of the children will say ‘I Pledge Allegiance”, then you will walk to your new classroom”, and so forth. Include talking about feelings. You might say something like, “You may feel excited or even a little nervous or scared. Those are natural feelings that everyone feels on their first day at school or in a new job.” You want to normalize the experience.

· Include your child in shopping for school supplies. Encourage him to choose his own backpack and lunchbox. Make it personal and specific to your child.

· Visit the school campus with your child before school resumes. If possible, allow her to see her new classroom and play in the schoolyard. Familiarity breeds comfort.

· Arrange play dates with two or three of your child’s classmates. Ask the principal for a class roster with contact numbers. If your child can make one or two friends before school starts, he will be so much happier to go to school. This is a sure antidote to school loneliness and feelings of isolation.

· Establish a regular homework space. For instance, place a personal desk and chair in your child’s bedroom or in the kitchen. Have your child always do her homework in the same area for continuity, routine, and structure.
· Get a timer with a buzzer. Use it to time how long your child is required to sit concentrating and focusing on his homework. Your child must sit with his work until the buzzer sounds off. If he rushes and finishes early, he has time to proofread and check for mistakes. Instead of you being the target of his anger, resistance, and fighting – let the time be the Homework Cop.
· Arrange play dates with two or three of your child’s classmates. Ask the principal for a class roster with contact numbers. If your child can make one or two friends before school starts, he will be so much happier to go to school. This is a sure antidote to school loneliness and feelings of isolation.

Here’s How Much a Junior School Uniform Costs at Six Major UK Retailers

Back-to-school shopping can put a big dent in your household budget, especially if you have more than one child. ValuePenguin UK analysed the market to find how much your child’s junior school uniform will cost from various in-store & online retailers, to help you decide which store fits in your budget. You can read more in the full study results.
Cheapest and Best School Uniforms
Across age groups, three retailers stood out for offering the most economical school uniforms: Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco with prices averaging 30% less than the average cost of a school uniform. You’d pay roughly £75 more if you shop at M&S, John Lewis or Next. The cheapest all-in cost for our basket of school uniform items was £92 on average at Asda; Next cost nearly twice as much with an average price of £179.

You may be enticed to shop at the more expensive retailers, as many of their products sport added features. For instance, M&S sells non-iron shirts that can save time and angst when it comes to the laundry at a cost of £10 for a 2-pack with short sleeves – for the same price you can get 5 “easy to iron” shirts at Asda. John Lewis’s shirts cost £11, but for the added cost you get features like taped seams for strength, re-enforced collars, minimal ironing and Teflon EcoElite to repel stains.

Pricier M&S, John Lewis and Next also tend to offer a wider selection of shoes and clothing options (e.g., slim fit, plus fit, skinny leg, flat front, pleated, etc. trousers). If you’re after branded shoes, John Lewis offers school shoes by ever-popular Geox, Clarks and Start-Rite.

For children required to wear a blazer to school, parents should expect to add between £10 and £28 to their school clothing budget, if shopping at these retailers. If you want to do all your back-to-school shopping in one store, keep in mind that blazers are not available from Sainsbury’s or Tesco.

Finally, while budget is always a large factor in deciding where to shop, keep in mind convenience. When we spot checked, M&S, John Lewis and Next appeared to have slightly better supply, with fewer sizes out of stock. You might have less of a headache stocking up at these retailers, if they’re in your budget.

AirSelfie, the world’s first selfie-drone, makes UK debut
The first flying camera integrated in your smartphone now available to pre-order from at a discounted price


London, February 2017 – AirSelfie, the first pocket-sized flying camera that integrates with smartphones, is now available to pre-order in the UK following a successful Kickstarter campaign that drew backers from all over the world. The stylish drone allows users to capture the perfect selfie from angles never before possible and is set to raise the selfie game nationwide in 2017.
Selfie-lovers can pre-order AirSelfie on the official website: There are two available package: AirSelfie + phone cover (£220) or AirSelfie and powerbank (£229).
Comprised of four powerful propellers and a 5-megapixel video camera, AirSelfie is smaller than a smartphone and can fly vertically up to 66 feet, allowing users to take aerial selfies of themselves and their friends. The device connects to the most popular smartphones, including iPhone (6, 6s, 7 and 7 Plus), Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The device includes self-generated WiFi and comes equipped with a rechargeable battery through a cell phone case, as well as the option to purchase an external power bank. Additionally, a vibration-absorber system and in-flight stability systems guarantee stable, clear, flowing images.
With AirSelfie, users can:
● Take group selfies and family photos from up to 66 feet away, capturing both people and panoramas
● Take indoor and outdoor aerial photos of subjects and locations that would otherwise be unreachable (e.g. monuments and stadiums during sporting events)
● Take videos from perspectives that were formerly impossible
● Use the device as a monitoring camera (when the device is not flying and is connected to a power source)
● Use the video as a work tool (for example, time-lapse shots of company event setups)
Edoardo Stroppiana, co-founder of AirSelfie, commented, “We’ve worked very hard to create a product that everyone can use to live a totally new experience. To be unveiling the product to the public is a momentous occasion for us and we can’t wait to see the amazing selfies people can now capture.
“Our Kickstarter drew thousands of backers from 81 countries across the world, so we knew that the AirSelfie was going to be popular – it’s going to be a real game changer for selfie-lovers everywhere.”
AirSelfie debuted on Kickstarter and reached its fundraising goal in the first 72 hours. The project soon became viral with its videos and photos spreading all over the web.
AirSelfie has just started the AirSelfie Team Tour that will hit major cities across the world, from London to Berlin, from Tokyo to Jakarta, passing through Singapore, from Los Angeles to New York, up to Dubai and Milan, just in time to attend the Milan Design Week. The most important monuments and main landmarks of these nine cities will be shown through the “eyes” of AirSelfie, from brand new perspectives for photos, videos and breathtaking selfies that will spread through the web and social networks with the hashtags #airselfieteamtour and #getanewperspective.

How it works
One of the key features of AirSelfie is its ease of use. To activate AirSelfie, the user simply removes it from its case and turns it on. The device connects automatically to smartphones via WiFi — the flying camera creates the WiFi (2.4GHz) network itself and it is immediately ready for take-off.
AirSelfie users must simply download the free iOS and Android app in order to control the device’s movements through three different flight modes. AirSelfie can be returned to its departure point either manually or automatically. When users are finished using the device, it’s easy to return it to its landing spot — simply by pressing the button labelled “slide to land” and AirSelfie descends and turns off. Users can also directly reposition the device by hand with no risk whatsoever of damaging it or themselves.
Using the “selfie delay timer” function, users can take timed photos, giving them up to 10 seconds to get into position and hide their smartphone so that it doesn’t appear in photos. Users can also take up to eight consecutive shots. AirSelfie’s technology integrates directly with social media, making it easy to post photos and videos directly to users’ accounts.
AirSelfie comes equipped with 4 GB micro SD memory card and a 260mAh 7.4v battery that enables three minutes of flight time.
About AirSelfie
AirSelfie is the brainchild of Italian entrepreneur Edoardo Stroppiana, who helped form the British company AirSelfie Holdings Ltd. in 2016.

The OUTrageous Way to Remove Stains from Sports Uniforms

Why does it seem far easier to get stains on your sports team uniforms than it is to remove them? It doesn’t have to be that way! Here are some great tips from Rejuvenate® on how to use OUTrageous™ Stain Remover & Laundry Pre-Treater to keep your team jerseys, active wear and workout clothes looking like new.

Removing Red Clay Stains from Team Uniforms

The orangey-red color is a warning in itself – this stuff can stain in a really bad way! It’s a good thing you’re ready with your bottle of OUTrageous Stain Remover handy. This is a great time to put it to the test – oh, and by the way, you won’t be disappointed. Say goodbye to that nasty clay.

For best results treat the stain within 12 hours, but don’t be shy to experiment on older stains, you’ll be amazed at the results.

1. Gently remove whatever excess clay you can. Gentle is the key word – you don’t want to spread the stain or grind it into the fibers.
2. If you can’t wash the stain right away, soak the item overnight in a bowl of cool water.
3. Generously apply OUTrageous to both sides of the stained area – you want it to be fully saturated.
4. Gently work it in with an old toothbrush.
5. Let it stand for a few minutes, longer if it’s heavily soiled. Just make sure you don’t let the product dry on the clothes, so reapply if necessary.
6. Launder on a normal cold cycle and check before drying as heat can set stains making them seriously stubborn.
7. Admire the results!

5-Star Review from Janet R. on
“In a world of a zillion stain removers and late night commercials guaranteeing ‘the best stain remover ever’, this stain remover does exactly what it says. It seriously removes stains with very little work. My son had grass stains on his shorts, which can be stubborn. After application, the shorts came out of the laundry with ZERO signs of any stains. This stuff works.”

Read the rest of our blog post The Outrageous Way to Remove 11 Common Sports Stains for step-by-step instructions on how to remove grass, mud, red clay, blood, sweat and other stains from sports uniforms:


WOVEN Ink Stationery offers luxury hand-illustrated greeting cards and art prints inspired by the latest New York City runway and streetstyle trends. We are a two-woman start-up, founded by two friends who met in university and wanted to do something creative with their degrees. We hand-make all cards and prints from start to finish in NYC and, as committed environmentalists, we always print on 100% recycled cardstock.

We like our cards to stand out from the crowd – think bright colors, cheeky poses, chic figures. Statement cards for statement people. Because we’re aware of the environmental impact of paper products, we also design our cards to have a long (perhaps permanent) lifespan. Our notes live on office desks, framed on gallery walls and added to annual Christmas Card displays. In a digital world filled with lifeless texts and empty social media, the gift of a hand-printed card communicates more than just the message inside. Time is a non-renewable resource; giving a written note communicates that your loved one is worth the precious time of selection, writing and mailing. Printed notes build and grow relationships of greater meaning than any ‘like’ button can achieve. So, make sure to water your relationships, give them a little sun, a little love – send a card.

And if our in-stock collection isn’t quite what you need, we also offer custom cards and prints. Tell us what you’d like and we’ll make it happen, from birthdays to graduations to wedding thank you notes.

Puressentiel tackles problem naturally

EVERY parent knows the difficulty of having to deal with an infestation of head lice in their child. Itchy scalps, messy treatments and often inconsistent results are all too common.

Head lice are part and parcel of most children’s early life. Picked up from close contact in schools, clubs or from friends, lice are very easily passed from person to person but can prove tricky to treat properly. More than half of all 4 to 11 year-olds catch head lice every year and Britons are spending huge sums on head lice treatments, with £23m spent in 2013, according to research.

However, experts are warning that many conventional commercial products are failing to adequately treat the lice invasion. A study of head lice shampoos that contain the insecticide permethrin found that the chemical is only 15% effective, down from nearly 100% when it was first used widely 20 years ago.

Even when they do work, many treatments are messy, unpleasant to use and require frequent re-applications. However, there is another way – harnessing the power of natural ingredients to quickly, effectively and easily combat the head lice scourge. The Puressentiel range of head lice treatments – Lice Repellent Spray and Anti-Lice Treatment Lotion with Comb are clinically proven to treat lice within minutes without worry or side effects.

Anyone can get head lice, but they are especially common in primary school children and are spread by head-to-head contact.

Lice feed on the blood of their host, but their bite can trigger itchiness and inflammation of the scalp. Once a child has lice, they can easily spread to other members of the family or friends and relatives.

Whilst common treatments include lotions and sprays on the affected area, along with a special lice comb, more recently scientists have warned lice could be becoming harder to treat. A study in the US suggests the creatures are becoming resistant to some of the regular treatments. Researchers found that in at least 25 American states lice have developed resistance to over-the-counter treatments because of genetic mutations.2

Many head lice treatments contain a family of insecticides called pyrethroids – of which permethrin is one – and are used widely to control mosquitoes and other insects. But the researchers warned that in the US at least, widespread pyrethroid resistant lice had been a growing problem for years. They found that 104 out of 109 lice cases studied had high levels of gene mutations, which have been linked to resistance to pyrethroids.

Practicing medical herbalist and plant medicine expert Dr Chris Etheridge says: “Head lice can be a bit of a nightmare for families, especially those with young children. There’s really nothing you can do to prevent the lice coming into contact with your child’s head, and once there’s an outbreak it can be tricky to treat. Every person in a family needs to be treated at the same time to remove all lice and eggs, and many of the treatments commonly available are messy or difficult to apply.

“There is also now mounting evidence that a frequently used insecticide in many head lice products may not be as effective as we’d hope. Research indicates that the lice are mutating to such an extent that they are becoming less affected by the treatments. Obviously, every parent wants to know that when they use a

specific treatment, it will do what it claims to and be effective in getting rid of all of the lice.”

“Fortunately, there is an answer. The Puressentiel range of head lice treatments uses entirely natural and safe ingredients to effectively tackle the problem and clear an infestation and prevent more occurrences. The products have been demonstrated to work, not only with great efficacy, but are also extremely safe and easy to use. Modern parents have a lot to worry about, but thanks to Puressentiel, head lice shouldn’t be one of them.”

The Puressentiel Anti-Lice Treatment Lotion has been proven to eliminate lice, larvae and nits in just 10 minutes. It does this thanks to a combination of six vegetable oils and four essential oils. It is simply applied on dry hair and scalp and massaged from roots to hair ends. After being left on for just 10 minutes it is washed off with normal shampoo and rinsed. A comb through with the supplied comb removes nits, larvae and dead lice and a second application is recommended three days later.

The Puressentiel Lice Repellent Spray has been clinically proven to effectively repel lice and prevent infestation of the scalp for 24 hours. An essential oil based product, the main active ingredient of the Puressentiel Lice Repellent Spray is Citriodiol® (derived from lemon eucalyptus essential oil). The repellent action of this key ingredient has proved itself to be as effective as synthetic chemicals. The formula also contains Lavender and Lavandin essential oils, organic Lavender floral water and apple vinegar. As a result, the ingredients naturally repel the lice. Puressentiel Lice Repellent Spray is also easy to apply – with just five to seven sprays – dries quickly and has a pleasant smell. The Repellent Spray is ideal for using once a day to prevent an infestation, especially when other family members or a child’s friends are known to have lice.

Clinical lab tests prove effectiveness
Both the Puressentiel head lice products have been proven in their efficacy and safety. In one laboratory test at the Parasitology-Mycology Laboratory in Avicenne University Hospital, France, the Anti-Lice Lotion was evaluated to gauge its effectiveness in killing lice in Petri dishes. The Anti-Lice Lotion was shown to be minutes. It killed nearly 80% of lice – 77.7% after five minutes and 78.3% after 15 minutes. These figures were higher than some other oil-based products.

In another lab test held at the Pharmaceutical Sciences Faculty of the François Rabelais University, Tours, France, the Lice Repellent Spray was gauged for its efficacy in repelling lice from a lock of hair – the so-called flight effect. Tests on 495 lice showed that the Lice Repellent Spray was effective at forcing the lice to move at least 6cm or more and had a repelling action for 24 hours. Forcing lice to move at least 6cm is considered important as this is the distance between two heads that above which it’s extremely unlikely to contract lice.

new ergonomic backpack for back-to-school features

With the summer holidays in full swing parents are thinking about kitting out their child ready for the new school year.

Leading children’s backpack brand YUU are launching their new ergonomically-designed school backpack, YUUschool.

The new YUUschool backpack is packed full of scientific ergonomic features, including vertical compartmentalisation of the pockets so weight is kept higher up and closer to the spine. The s-shaped padded straps are sewn close together not just for additional comfort but also to centralise weight to the body. The deep pockets combined with the secure straps have been thoughtfully designed and positioned to avoid weight falling down into the middle of the bag which causes weight to be unevenly distributed and concentrated in one area causing unnecessary pressure and pain. The full extent of the YUUschool’s ergonomic design and the benefits this brings can be found at

Kellie Forbes, co-founder of YUU adds “For most parents this time of year is usually a race against the clock to get all the usual supplies of uniform, stationary and books fully stocked. However, this is also the perfect time to re-assess your child’s backpack and make sure it offers suitable protection for the busy year ahead. Our 10-step Backing Better Backs checklist offers a simple risk-assessment that parents can follow to help prevent painful back problems in the future.”

The YUUschool is available to buy from for £40. There is currently a promotion for a “back to school bundle” which includes the YUUschool backpack, a gym bag, a waterbottle, stationary set and notebook for £49.50 (a saving of 25%). The website also offers advice

Naturelly Partners with Entertainment Ones Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom to make Magic Jelly

Naturelly is partnering with Entertainment One (eOne) to create a new line of jelly featuring its popular preschool cartoon Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.

The partnership will mark the brands entrance into the food aisles when it launches to retail in August 2017. Naturelly have created a special Magic Jelly for kids aged 12 months + in two new flavours; Strawberry and Blackberry. The flavours are inspired by The Fruit Harvest episode in the animated series when Mr Gnome cant resist eating all the strawberries and blackberries that he is helping to pick on harvest day.

As with all Naturelly juicy jelly snacks they have no added sugar or sweeteners, only 36 kcal per 100g pouch, 100% RDI of Vitamin C and are Vegetarian society and school approved.

The Magic Jelly will be available from August 2017, just in time for summer picnics during the school holidays and Back to School lunchboxes. The new range also includes an exclusiveon-pack promotion; fans of the show will have the chance to win a Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom bicycle or 1 of 100s of Ben & Holly Goodies including toys, back-packs and DVDs.

Dean Dempsey Naturelly Founder comments: We are totally thrilled to be partnering with eOne to bring the Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom brand to our lunchbox snacks. We share the same brand values; playfulness, adventure and exploration and we believe that the Magic Jelly will be a fun treat on days out or after activities.Katie Rollings, Head of UK Licensing at Entertainment One comments: Were delighted that Naturelly has selected Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom as the license for its new line of jelly. Magic Jelly is a frequent source of humour in the series and the synergy between our two brands makes this the perfect fit for the propertys first food partnership.

“Supplement” Your College Students’ Alarm Clocks

Sparta, NJ – August 10, 2017 – With graduation now a memory, college preparation experts are working around the clock to prepare high school students for their new adventures. College Prep – 101 has helped to organize thousands of high school students for more than two decades, and recommends packing not just one, but two alarm clocks. For many morning-impaired students who struggle to get out of bed, this suggestion is a “must-have” to keep on track and make the transition into the real world of being on time.
Rise-N-Shine, an all-natural supplement company based in New Jersey, is taking the alarm clock one step further with a patented pill that enhances the body’s internal alarm clock and guarantees a naturally energetic, revived and refreshed morning. The first and only supplement of its kind, Wake Up On Time’s unique energy-blend formula was created to provide a natural solution for morning grogginess.
The all-natural tablet of vitamins, herbs and amino acids is taken before bedtime, but won’t affect the ability to fall asleep or sleep soundly. With the special delayed release coating, as the pill dissolves slowly overnight, it delivers maximum energy and vitality benefits when needed most – when the alarm clock rings.

“It’s so much more than a vitamin, it’s time in a bottle because instead of hitting the snooze button over and over again, our product allows you to bounce out of bed ready to go,” said Cathy Beggan, founder of Rise-N-Shine and creator of Wake Up On Time. “This product helps you effortlessly wake up in the morning feeling vital, alert and ready to face the day. It’s like an alarm clock inside of a pill. It’s a perfect gift idea to send to school with students and later in their care packages.”
And for the graduates stepping into a new phase of challenges and changes, deadlines and timetables, Wake Up On Time is the extra edge needed to help keep young adults on the college track or new job track.
Rise-N-Shine, LLC is a New Jersey Based all-natural supplement company engaged in developing and selling proprietary, targeted supplements on the basis of meeting everyday needs naturally. Founded in 2006 by Cathy Beggan, Rise-N-Shine, LLC has over twenty products designed to help people look and feel their best.

Food, Family, and Chaos!

My kids take a homemade lunch to school every single day. Yes, every day! As a mom, that can be a daunting task at times. Over the years I have tried several items that promised to make packing lunches easier. This is what helps us the most and makes packing lunches a little easier.

We love PlanetBox lunch containers. They are made from stainless steel, dishwasher safe, and clean easily. They are made out of safe, non-toxic, and recycled materials – safe from lead, PVC, phthalates, or BPA. They have 5 compartments that keep food separate which is great for my kids. I definitely would not put something liquid like yogurt or applesauce though because I think that would leak into the other compartments.

Having the separate compartments definitely makes lunch more appealing to my kids. They are great if you have kids that have issues with foods touching each other. I find that crunchy foods like pretzels stay crunchy too which is great. I also like to use food safe markers to draw cute little faces on their sandwiches. They love this and are always so excited to see what face I drew that day!

PlanetBox is definitely an investment but they will hold up for more than 1 school year. These containers will cost you around $75 each + free shipping and they come with the stainless steel container and a cute lunchbox. If this is too expensive for you, they also have a 2 compartment and a 3 compartment option. If your kids are not big eaters, these might work out great for you.

They make packing lunches fun and easy. Add a cute little printed lunchbox note or a handwritten note and you are good to go. Hopefully, this tip will make your day a little easier. You’ve got this! Happy Back-To-School!!
