Keep Momming

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 6:57 AM
Disclosure: “I participated in a campaign on behalf of  Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”



Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

That’s why I’m pleased to be joining Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.


Check out Holly’s message about how she keeps momming http://goo.gl/MR8HL2, and don’t forget to visit KeepMomming.com.

FutureFood 2050- #sponsored #futurefood2050

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 10:01 AM 0 comments
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post and contains hyperlinks. However, all opinions are my own.

As a parent, I'm concerned about what my family eats. With so many different food products available on the market, sometimes mom's are clueless when it comes to what in the heck are our families really eating!

The folks at the  Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) have been dedicated to advancing the science of food since 1939. Their non-profit scientific society—with more than 18,000 members from more than 100 countries—brings together food scientists, technologists and related professionals from academia, government and industry. 

Last Spring IFT launched FutureFood 2050 —a multi-year program highlighting the people and stories leading the efforts for a healthier, safer and better nourished planet that’s needed to feed 9 billion+ people by 2050.  IFT continues to roll out interviews with the world’s most impactful leaders in food and science, and next year watch for FutureFood 2050, the documentary film.

I had a chance to stop by the new website and check out some very interesting articles. As a concerned parent, I want to know what my family is eating and what changes are being made to ensure my family's safety.


One of my biggest concerns is food safety. With so many different food-borne illnesses, it's scary to think my family could get sick from eating a hamburger or a piece of fried chicken. Consumer activist Caroline Smith DeWaal has devoted her life for nearly twenty years to insure the safety of consumers. She has dedicated her career to fighting food-borne illnesses by documenting them and advocating for faster and stricter reporting standards.  DeWaal is changing the horizon regarding how food is processed. Although, it is an ongoing process and much work needs to be done before no food-borne illnesses exist, DeWall is making a difference one small step at a time. To read her story click here.

Be sure to check FutureFood2050 out and sign up at www.futurefood2050.com to follow the stories and connect science to the conversation on how to feed the planet. As a parent, it's one of the best decisions you can make for your family.
