Toronto Parents: Think Twice Before Buying A Used Car Seat

Toronto Parents: Think Twice Before Buying A Used Car Seat

In these days of rising prices and shrinking paychecks, Toronto parents are trying to save money wherever they can. They shop sales for food, clothes, school supplies, and other necessities.

Many Toronto thrift stores have seen their business increase in the past few years as parents have discovered how much money they can save by buying used items. Perfectly good toys, clothes, books, sports gear, and children’s furniture can be purchased for a fraction of retail price at Toronto thrift stores.

One place Toronto parents should not scrimp, however, is on their child’s car seat. If you are considering buying a used child safety seat, make sure it comes with the user’s manual, the model number, and date of manufacture. You want to be certain that you know the complete history of the car seat. Check to see if it is on the list of recalled products. (Information at If it has ever been involved in anything more severe than a low-speed fender bender, don’t buy it.

‘Go Ahead, Trust Me . . .’

Go Ahead Trust Me

Hi, thanks for stopping by my Bowmanville Energy blog. Today I want to outline some ways to establish credibility with your online blog.

For the past couple of years, I have been following several blogs relevant to the Bowmanville Energy industry and have formed some definite opinions about the Ontario businesses they represent. Some have successfully established credibility in my eyes. When they recommend something, I go check it out. If they make a claim, I believe it.

Even though I have never met these Toronto business bloggers in person, I trust them. If I was going to do business with another Energy entrepreneur, I know exactly who it would be.

It is essential for any new Bowmanville home based business to establish credibility. In the online world, anything goes and often does. Online customers have become suspicious of marketing claims.

Bowmanville home business bloggers can use excerpts, quotes, and statistics to establish credibility. Here are some tips from ListPipe, the business blogging experts:

‘Some large Bowmanville companies have well established track records and can support their own claims. For the rest of us Bowmanville home business bloggers; we need to look to third-party testimony to assure our audience that we know what we’re talking about.’

Including an excerpt or quote is a great way to add credibility to your claim, but make sure the source is credible and watch for quackery. Excerpting an encyclopedia entry or research article is an excellent addition to your blog, as long as you maintain the original context and include enough to assure your readers that you are not cherry-picking.

Statistics can communicate efficacy or some other measurable metric to your Protein Meal Replacement blog readers. As with the others, the source of the material will ultimately come under scrutiny. Use studies conducted by respected Ontario universities and established research firms who have a reputation to protect.

With each of these methods, watch for the pitfall of adding someone else’s words to support your own; when we include excerpts, quotes, or statistics we open the door to logical fallacies, and these can work against you if they are not understood.’

Welcome To My Healthy Courtice Kids Blog!

Hello Courtice parents and kids. Welcome to my ‘Healthy Courtice Kids‘ blog. I am passionate about children’s health. I want my children and your children to develop healthy habits while they are young. I hope we can help the youth of today reverse negative health trends and grow up healthier than their parents’ generation.

In our lifetimes we have learned so much about how nutrition, environmental factors, and daily habits influence our health and well-being here in Ontario. Let’s help our Oshawa and Bowmanville children avoid the chronic conditions that plague the baby boomer generation. That is my goal and I hope this blog will play a part in improving health for Courtice children and their counterparts everywhere. My ‘Healthy Courtice Kids’ blog will post timely information about a broad range of children’s health-related topics.

  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Exercise and Recreation
  • Healthy Sleep Habits
  • Cancer Risks
  • Mental Health
  • Environmental Factors
  • Alternative and Holistic Healthcare

Healthy habits start at home. I encourage you to examine your own lifestyle and identify areas that you could improve. By setting good examples for our Toronto children we will enjoy better health ourselves and perhaps even add some extra years.

Thanks for reading! I hope you will check back often as I plan to post new articles regularly. Here’s to your Courtice family’s healthy future!

Direct Selling Has Evolved In Toronto

Direct Selling Has Evolved In Toronto

Network marketing in Toronto is nothing like it was twenty years ago. Toronto direct sellers had to host home parties and other events to show their products and explain the opportunity.

The internet has revolutionized Toronto home businesses in general and MLMs in particular.

Toronto direct marketers still have the option to sell Energy in person, but most of them use their website as their main marketing vehicle. You can make money online with Energy direct sales.

If you ruled out network marketing in the past because you don’t like to make presentations in person, I invite you to reconsider. Internet storefronts have taken direct selling to a whole new level.

You can find new Energy customers online, collect contact information, and build a database without leaving your Toronto home! You can also explain your home business opportunity to people all over the world.

I am Sue Jukes. I launched my Energy online business in November 2010. My phone number is 905-436-0917. If you would like to learn more about online direct sales, contact me today at 905-436-0917.

Plastic Alert For Whitby Parents

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Plastic Alert For Whitby Parents Hello new Whitby parents. Today’s Healthy Whitby Children’s blog focuses on BPA. Bisphenol A (BPA), the dangerous compound used in plastics manufacturing can now be detected everywhere in our environment: in our food, clothing, homes, offices, soil, water: you name it.

‘Since at least 1936 it has been known that BPA mimics estrogens, binding to the same receptors throughout the human body as natural female hormones.’1

What does this mean for Whitby kids? Numerous scientific studies suggest an increased risk of cancer and neurological problems.

Whitby infants are the most susceptible to even minute amounts of BPAs. Unfortunately, most infant formula containers and plastic bottles contain BPAs and other toxins.

What can Whitby parents do to reduce the risk of these chemicals finding their way into their child’s formula or baby food?


1) Do not heat plastic containers in the microwave.
2) Do not wash plastic containers in hot water.
3) Consider using glass bottles and containers.

These are simple steps that any Whitby parent or day-care provider can take. Toss your plastic bottles today! For more information about children’s health issues, call me at 905-436-0917.

‘Oshawa CSRs: Hang Up Your Headsets And Call Me!’

Hang Up Your Headsets And Call Me

Some Oshawa people without sales experience wonder if they have what it takes to run their own direct sales business. I think customer service experience is more important than sales experience in Oshawa because customer service specialists know how to focus on the customer.

Why do some home business owners in Oshawa struggle? A common reason is because they focus more on selling than serving their customers. Top selling Oshawa home business owners put the customer before anything else. When they do that, everything else falls into place.

The business owner’s passion for the product is important, but not more important than providing attentive customer service. If you don’t satisfy your Oshawa customer, it doesn’t matter if you have the most amazing product in the world.

Oshawa customer service specialists make great Energy direct sellers. If customer service is your forte, hang up your headset and call me today at 905-436-0917!

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Bowmanville Kids

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Bowmanville Kids

Hello Bowmanville! Welcome to my children’s health blog. I am a concerned parent and advocate for improved children’s health in the Bowmanville area.

Today’s topic is energy drinks. Many Bowmanville teens are under the false impression that energy drinks like Rock Star and Red Bull are similar to sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade.

Energy drinks are completely different from electrolyte replacement drinks and we need to help our children understand the health risks they pose. Energy drinks contain dangerous chemicals that can harm kid’s growing bodies, especially their teeth.

Energy drinks contain citric acid, fruit juices and extracts, sugar, and a dangerous chemical that gives them their bright color. They can damage tooth enamel with prolonged use.

It is important for us Bowmanville parents to model healthy behavior for our children. If your kids see you guzzle energy drinks, you may want to think about the example you are setting.

I sell child-friendly nutritional products that are enjoyed by healthy Bowmanville families. To order healthy energy-boosters, visit

Food Allergies In Bowmanville Children

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Food Allergies In Bowmanville Children The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that around eight percent of U.S. kids are affected by food allergies.

Eight foods account for most children’s food allergies in Toronto: eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, nuts, and wheat. Strawberries and tomatoes can also cause food allergies in young Bowmanville kids, though generally not in adults.

Type and severity of allergy symptoms in Toronto kids vary, but may show up as itchy eyes, nose or throat, trouble breathing, gastrointestinal upset, or hives.

If you suspect your child may have a food allergy, keep a food journal of everything he or she eats (including beverages) for a week to show your Oshawa pediatrician. To confirm the diagnosis, your doctor may scratch the skin with a small amount of an allergen to observe the reaction.

Toronto or to inquire about the nutritional superstar Energy, contact my office today.
