What’s on your mind this week? Spring Break? Easter? Passover? Baseball season? On our mind and in this edition of our Health & Wellness News & Info Recap, dietitians discuss clean eating, GNC announces new quality control protocols and an inspirational post tells us about reframing thoughts, actions and attitudes.
It’s finally spring. I love this time of year because I crave exercising and physical activity. Now that the days are longer and the weather is warming up, I’m back to walking with my neighbor, jogging the block with my 6-year old and playing family basketball in the driveway. Spring also means baseball season. If you’re a Yankees fan, you will be interested to hear more about the healthy changes in the clubhouse. Also in this week’s Health & Wellness News & Info Recap, a recent study releases information about the importance of moving around and an explanation of toxic chemicals in perfumes.
This week’s Health & Wellness News & Information recap highlights the ‘Kids Eat Right’ label, the safety of supplements, the soft-cover release of Thrive and an inspirational post in memory of a furry friend.

While last week’s stories in the Health & Wellness News & Info recap spoke about non-GMO candy, this roundup includes plant-based foods in the U.S. Dietary Guidelines proposal. In addition, there’s been talk about how cholesterol may not be such a big health issue, as well as how the rise of iPhone and individual devices may be causing hearing risks.
It’s pretty cute that my 6-year old thinks we celebrate Presidents Day to honor the birthdays of all Presidents, including both President Obama as well as the President from Daddy’s work. I love that he got excited and wanted to celebrate all of them this past week. His logic makes sense, though, more birthdays = more festivities = more cake. I’m the girl who acknowledges even the smallest milestones. So, I want my son to partake in the celebrations, but cringe at all the simple sugars and chemical ingredients in many of the party foods. That’s why, of all the wellness news stories I’ve highlighted in the News & Info recaps, this tops my list. Announced Wednesday, Nestle USA will be removing all artificial flavors and colors from their chocolates by the end of the year. This and other weekly wellness news and information around the web are highlighted below.
