Snack Recipe - Fruit Kabobs

Here is a really healthy alternative to sweets such as cupcakes and cookies for kids snacks. These work especially well for School and Day Care events like Birthdays.

Fruit Kabobs

Wooden Skewer Sticks (I used the small ones @4inches)
Suggestions for filling the Kabob:
Marshmellows (Explore Fun shapes and flavors)

There are lots of different ways to make a great kid friendly kabob treat. First make sure all fruit has been prepped by washing and/or peeling if required. Use your firm fruits or items on the ends to hold everything together and get to putting your items on the stick. If you want to get really creative you can use cookie cutters to create fun shapes with some of your fruit and cheese. Refrigerate if not eating right away but eat and enjoy as soon as possible.
Fruit kabobs can even be dipped in a healthy flavored yogurt dip. Find your favorite flavor of yogurt and get to dipping.

Visit our Pinterest page for more kabob options on our Fun Food For Kids Board.

Tennis Elbow

· Have you experienced numbness or tingling in your hand or fingers?
· Have you experienced elbow or hand/wrist pain?
· Do you have difficulty opening jars?
· Does you arm or hand fatigue easily?
· If any of these sound familiar, ask your Doctor about Tennis Elbow!

TENNIS ELBOW - A.K.A Lateral Epicondylitis

This condition may be caused by any number of repetitive motions or excessive uses involving the  forearm, wrist, or hands.  People at risk include but are not limited to those active with computers, musicians, laborers, tennis players, and golfers. 

Signs or Symptoms:
Pain or tenderness when palpating the outside of the elbow.  Pain or weakness noted during resisted wrist extension or resisted rotation of the wrist to make the palm face upward.

If pain or muscular tightness is present, modalities (i.e. ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation) may be utilized to reduce inflammation or reduce muscle tightness or spasms.  Ice therapy may also be introduced at this stage.  Treatment may also include the Graston technique, myofascial release, and/or trigger point therapy to reduce muscle spasms or improve the range of motion.  These therapies are also effective for those with recurring problems that are associated with scar tissue from a previous episode.  The Doctors at Gateway Bay Colony Chiropractic may then begin an active care program including stretches and exercises that will be introduced as tolerated.  You will be instructed on how and why you are to    incorporate these in your daily routines.  You will also be advised on which activities to reduce or avoid in your daily routine that may be aggravating your condition.  Joint mobilization may also be used to restore normal biomechanical movement that has been restricted due to the repetitive microtrauma associated with "tennis elbow." 

After a discussion with your chiropractor, acupuncture may be a treatment to initiate or try if all else has failed.  Acupuncture points can be used to help with the pain, trigger points, or muscle spasms often    associated with “tennis elbow.”
