    I grew up chomping on Flintstones vitamins. Now my daughter does the same (only hers are gummies, and far yummier). Still, when I asked at her last checkup, "Does my child need a multivitamin?" I didn't get a straight answer -- and a ton of recent media coverage claims that vitamins aren't necessary and can actually do harm, and that many kids get too many vitamins and minerals, which is potentially harmful since certain nutrients are unhealthy taken in high amounts. So what's the deal: Do kids need a multivitamin, or are they a waste of money ... or even potentially harmful when combined with all the fortified cereals, milk, juices, and other fortified foods available today?

    I don't know how to eat a cupcake or a hamburger. I know it sounds crazy, but the truth is, after decades of consuming food, I'm apparently still not a pro.

    How do I know?

    YouTube. They have videos on how to eat (and prepare) everything -- from cupcakes to burgers. And it has shown me (and everyone else) the error of our ways. These amazing hacks on how to eat or cut up food is going to improve our quality of life. Trust me.

    A Fourth of July celebration ended tragically after 47-year-old Walter Eagle Tail died choking on a sausage while taking part in a hot dog eating contest in western South Dakota.

    In recent years, extreme eating contests -- especially those involving hot dogs -- have become iconic American sports. After all, they honor one of our most popular foods and pay tribute to our two favorite pastimes: gluttony and the attempt to eat as quickly as possible.

    This is a horrible tragedy and it's one I'm surprised doesn't happen more often.

    "Honey, I'll be right back. We're fresh out of bull penis and I've got to go to the local grocery store to buy us some," SAID NO ONE EVER. But don't tell that to one grocery store in Austin, Texas. They stand accused of repackaging "pizzle" (that's bull dong to you and me) and selling it as being totally fit for human consumption. The attorney general's office had some beef (AMAZING PUN) with this -- as one would imagine. They are fining the store and the employees responsible for the sale of the wiener $5,000.

    In America we naturally turn our noses up at the idea of eating the penis of any animal. Unless you're a dog -- in which case, pizzle sticks are among one of the more popular dried, chewy treats sold at pet stores. In other countries, like China, this part of the bull is thought to be an aphrodisiac. Just, you know, not here.

    Juice cleanses have been all the rage for the past several years, as women and men are starting to puree their fruits and vegetables into drinkable concoctions. But a new, and very disturbing, trend has surfaced lately: juice cleanses for kids. And they're bad. Like, really, really bad.

    Turns out, grade school-aged kids are now flocking to the spinach, kale, and beet mixtures. A California-based company has even been selling a Children's Cleanse of liquid extracts that's are meant for kids from 2 to 12. That means that your toddler, and even your growing preteen, can now rid their body of toxins and -- bonus! -- probably shed a few pounds.

    Is this crazy or what?

    I have a lunch problem. I'm so busy during the day, from working and taking care of my family's needs, that my midday meal is often an afterthought.

    Whether they're minor or severe, food allergies and aversions can be threatening to a child's safety or health. Any child with serious allergies, and their parents, know how important it is to keep them protected from anything that can trigger an allergic reaction. If that means changing the whole family's diet or shopping for exclusively allergen-free products, families will often make changes in their habits to make sure that kids are kept healthy and are able to avoid irritants.

    However, plenty of people are ignorant and insensitive to those who suffer incredibly serious, even life-threatening, allergies to certain foods. And unfortunately, when people lack understanding, they tend to make not-so-nice comments to parents of kids with food allergies. We can all do better to understand what these families deal with on a daily basis. Here is a list of 10 things you should never say to a mom of a child with allergies:
