Are children breaking laws by playing in the street?

Jennifer: I have a safety and law concern. We have so many children playing on the streets of our neighborhood and also playing basketball with baskets on the streets. I see parents placing slow down signs on the streets, but I’m always worried that someone driving will disregard these signs or will not see the kids playing on the streets. Are the children or the parents of the children breaking any laws?

A diet full of fiber rich plant foods helps keep diseases away

While many shy away from the topic, as a dietitian and nutrition professor, I have no problem talking about constipation, especially when it is a matter of life and death! It is so common that many people mistakenly think it is “normal”, has a long shadow that extends far beyond inconvenience and physical pain/discomfort.

It is important to get the correct of calcium each day

Most of us know we need to get enough calcium throughout our life span for bone health, but we’ve also read in the past couple of years that too much calcium isn’t good. In 2010, the National Academy of Sciences updated the recommended daily allowance for calcium recommendations for all age groups.

Will Galt subdivision homeowners have to pay for water meters twice?

Jennifer: Regarding Galt’s water meter installation, that you wrote about recently, I must say that about 100 homes here on the west side were built by Guttridge builders. Instead of all of the homes, I will just talk about mine. When it was built in 1987, the builder installed a water well at the edge of the driveway. The connections are not hooked up yet, but they are there. So if a Galt employee comes to my home to install a water meter for $300 then if I pay, I will have paid for water meters twice. What about the other Guttridge homeowners?

Plan ahead and involve the family for school lunch preparation

With school back in session, families are trying to re-establish their routines, one of which is packing lunches. As parents, we want to provide a lunch that is enticing enough to actually get eaten, but also provides our kids with the nutrients they need to thrive.

Six Hands Winery has just released a 2013 Six Hands Cresci Vineyard Lodi Chenin Blanc ($16) that is as dry as a desert, yet gushy in varietal perfumes of wild honey, green melon, white flowers and underlying minerality.

Focus on nutrition and active lifestyle to help children establish healthy habits

My professional organization, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, has just announced its first-ever Kids Eat Right month. The goal is to focus on the importance of healthy nutrition and active lifestyle for children and families. Establishing these habits early in life increases the chances of turning around the staggering epidemic of early onset obesity and the diseases that follow.

Jazz up brown rice with a lime cilantro taste

If you think brown rice is boring, I would bet that you haven’t tried my recipe for lime cilantro brown rice. You may have enjoyed something similar at a local or chain restaurant and assumed that it would be too complicated to make at home.

Who owns Lodi Memorial Hospital?

Jennifer: Who owns Lodi Memorial Hospital? It’s clear it’s not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente or funded by taxpayers as many county hospitals are.

Why is the Galt Police Department not issuing tickets for left turns in the right turn only lane?

Dear Jennifer: With the recent opening of the new Walmart in Galt, I have noticed more traffic along Twin Cities Road. I don’t understand why the Galt police are not out issuing violations to drivers who turn left when the signs clearly depict right turns only.

Proper food choices are important during times of stress

Everyone experiences stress. It’s part of life for many, but if it becomes excessive, stress can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, cancer and many gastrointestinal disorders. Stress also affects nutrition. When the body is under stress, digestion and absorption of nutrients are impaired.

Is it legal to paint address numbers on the curb?

Dear Jennifer: A young man recently knocked on my door and, armed with paint, offered to touch up address numbers on the curb in front of my house. He said they are used by emergency vehicles. Does he need a permit to do this? More importantly, is it even legal? I thought the sidewalks were owned by the city.

Provide sweetness as well as nutrients to meals with nectarines

Although these hot days may leave you wishing for the weather to turn cooler, our bounty of delicious summer fruits and veggies are a pretty amazing trade off! Our kids especially look forward to the white nectarines they sample and we buy at Thursday night Farmers’ Market and Curry Farms on Turner Road. This week, I set a few aside for nectarine and berry compote, a recipe that Mia was so excited to be able to prepare with me on a recent episode of California Bountiful TV!
