3 cool gifts that can keep kids healthy

EAT

Wim Froyo Maker

Most kids love a sweet treat every now and again, which sends their parents on the hunt for healthy options that will satisfy a sweet tooth while not rotting out any teeth in the process.

If that’s the boat you find yourself in, the Wim is destined to become your new favorite home appliance.

Described by some users as a “Keurig for froyo,” the Wim system could not be any easier to use. Simply combine your milk or dairy alternative of choice with a Wim-Bowl, pop it into the Wim, close the lid and press start. Within about 10 minutes you’ll have creamy, delicious frozen yogurt that kids won’t want to stop eating.

Depending on your choice of milk, each 4.2 oz Wim-Bowl serving (available in flavors such as banana bread, passion fruit, raspberry, brownie batter and chocolate peanut butter cup) averages out to 90-180 calories.

Talk about a snack you won’t feel guilty about serving.

PLAY/LEARN

Puro BT2200 Bluetooth Wireless Kids Headphones

Headphones are one of those items you don’t think you need for your kids, until you end up in a situation where they would really come in handy, like the five-hour car ride to Grandma and Grandpa’s house over Thanksgiving break.

But not all headphones for kids are made equal. Some play too loudly, potentially causing irreversible damage, and other popular earbud styles don’t always fit tiny ears comfortably.

Enter Puro Kids Headphones. These sleek, attractive on-ear headphones play no louder than 85 dBA (the maximum safe listening level recommended by the World Health Organization), so you can have peace of mind knowing your kids’ ears are protected. They also reduce 82 percent of ambient noise, making them on par with some of the top noise-canceling headphones on the market. Finally, the sound quality is top-notch, so you can say goodbye to annoying static.

SLEEP

BST-100 Bluetooth Sleep Sound Therapy System

Sleep is so important to your kids’ overall health, but every parent knows just how difficult it can be to settle kids down at night. And getting them to stay asleep is another battle in and of itself. One that often ends either with you falling asleep on the floor next to the crib or doing your best ninja moves to get out of the room silently. 

White noise has been proven to lull trouble sleepers into a deeper, more restful slumber so finding a reliable sound machine can be heaven sent.

With 10 pre-loaded sounds (including white noise and baby’s heartbeat), the ability to stream music, superior sound quality and eight hours of battery life, the BST-100 Bluetooth Sleep Sound Therapy System is a small machine that packs a mighty punch. 

Sweet dreams are right around the corner.
