Topical BioMedics, Inc., offers the following healthy-living tips for families:

Eat Well:

  •     Ensure that all lunch gear and lunch boxes are free of BPAs, phthalates, and other toxic chemicals.
  •     Children should sit up straight when eating, should have sufficient number of teeth, and the muscular and developmental ability needed to chew and swallow the foods chosen. Remember, not all children will be at the same developmental level. Children with special health care needs are especially vulnerable to choking risks.
  •     Dr. Gary Smith, the lead author of American Academy of Pediatrics’ policy statement on food hazards, says some foods should simply not be given to children under the age of four or five: raw carrots, marshmallows, peanuts, popcorn, hard candies and gumballs.

Play Well:

  •     Clothing and shoes should fit properly. Loose clothes can catch in playground equipment, and properly fitting footwear minimizes the risk of falling or tripping.
  •     Children should have a physical exam before participating in sports and always wear the proper protective equipment. Be sure your child stretches and warms up muscles prior to activity, which helps prevent injuries.
  •     Since bullying is a growing epidemic, an adult should accompany younger children to the bus stop and playground to avoid episodes of roughhousing.

Love Well:

  •     A Child’s backpack should weigh no more than 10% -15% of the child’s body weight. .
  •     Learn how to choose and install a carseat properly at
  •     Carefully choose proper pain relief options for your child that contains no grease, odor, parabens, petroleum, counter-irritants, or any other chemical ingredients.

About CozzyWoggle:
When Cherlyn Jenkins learned that young children shouldn't be placed in car seats while wearing their coats, she had a newborn and a toddler. She needed to find a way to keep her children warm, while also keeping them safe. She couldn't find any coats or jackets that were proven to be safe in car seats, so she created one herself.

The CozzyWoggle is the ONLY product that looks and acts as a coat, but is safe to be worn in a car seat. It is made from heavy-duty wind/water resistant polyester, and is lined with cozy fleece. The CozzyWoggle can be used with any 5-point harness car seat - either forward or rear-facing and comes in sizes 12 months, 18 months, 2T, 3T, 4, 5 and 6. The CozzyWoggle has been crash tested in a lab and proven to be safe in a car seat.

Cozywoggle has been selected as one of the finalists in the "Most Awesome Kids Travel Essentials" category in the 2013 Red Tricycle’s Totally Awesome Awards.

Available for sale in September, 2013 from and can now be purchased from their website. For more information visit:
