(原创)By teaching your children healthy eating habits,a nd copying these behaviors in yourself,you can help your children keep a healthy weight and normal growth.Also,the eating habits your children pick up when they are young will help them keep a healthy lifestyle when they grow up.
Your child’s health care provider can evaluate(评估) your child’s weight and growth and let you know if your child needs to lose or gain weight or if any dietary changes need to be made.

In the tiny village o f Angelica,New York, the post office is more than a place to get mail or send packages.There you’ll find the heart of this lovely community.It’s where villagers meet and greet friends.
When Angelica’s post office was threatened with being closed in the 1980s,a villager,Pat,came up with a plan to save it.“At Christmas time I would hear on the news about towns named Snow or Bethlehem having celebrations,” says Pat,“Why could n’t we do the same thing with Angelica?”
Pat,who is an artist,created a postal cancellation (邮戳) design featuring an Angelica angel.
She drew her angels in a traditional fashion and submitted her suggestion to the U.S.Postal Service.Once approved,the drawing was carved into a cancellation stamp that could be used for one day only.The postmistress (女邮局局长) then had another idea to make the day even more special calling the post office Angel Station.
The large increase in mail amount saved Angelica’s post office from being closed and keeps the doors open today.
Now it’s tradition that on the first Friday in December,people come to Angelica to mail their Christmas cards.Each year the amount of mail going through the Angelica Post Office increases during late November and early December.Stamp collectors from around the world have accepted the Angel Station cancellation,some sending mail from as far away as France.
Because the stamp is destroyed each season,Pat draws a new angel that conveys season’s greetings from Angel Station every year.Post offices may close in other parts of the country,but this tiny one continues.

A girl became a volunteer in the activities of Deathbed Care,which meant visiting and taking care of a patient suffering from an incurable disease with days numbered.
The girl was assigned to look after an old man suffering from cancer whose children lived abroad.Their living conditio ns were not satisfactory while the old man had a lot of savings.She was expected to comfort him and keep up his spirits.Every Saturday the girl came on time to keep him company,telling him stories.When he was having an intravenous drip (静脉滴注),she would help massage his arms.The doctor found the patient much improved mentally.The old man began to involve himself actively in the medical treatment and he seldom shouted at others.
But something that happened made the doctor uneasy and puzzled.Each time the girl left,the old man would give her some money.The doctor did nothing to interfere(干涉),unwilling to offend the old man.
A month later the old man showed evident signs of decline after suffering coma(昏迷) a few times.When rescued from the latest coma,the old man told the doctor his last wish,“I have deep sympathy for the girl.Will you be kind enough to help her finish her studies?” But the doctor knew that her family was well-off and she had no difficulty pursuing her studies.Sometimes she even came to the hospital in her father’s car.
When the girl came at the weekend after the death of the old man,the doctor told her the bad news.She was very sad and burst into tears.Then she handed $500 to the doctor,saying,“The old man had all along thought I came to do the job because of poverty.He gave me money so that I could continue my schooling.”Now he got the answer to the puzzle.In the last period of his life,the old man found it a real pleasure to be able to help a girl badly in need.
