Liquid Gold -- UCD's Olive Oil Center

Liquid Gold -- UCD's Olive Oil Center

Davis -- Stephen Lasko, student intern at UCD's Olive Center, eagerly tastes a sample of the exquisite olive oil produced by the university's unique program to perfect California's pure and authentic olive oil. Unknown to many people, Lasko says most commercial olive oil is grossly mixed with inferior oils -- even so extremely impure that the olive oil scent is faked. One goal at UCD, he points out, is to produce healthy olive oil that's affordable and readily available. And to top off this goal, Lasko says TV's Dr. Oz always promotes the numerous health benefits of olive oil and UCD's Olive Center strives to make theirs the very best. "Just try UCD's olive oil," Lasko urges with a smile. I did. It's fantastic! Get the scoop at www.olivecenter.ucdavis.edu and try the best California olive oil.

Green-Hair Principal Rewards Wire Elementary Students

Green-Hair Principal Rewards Wire Elementary Students

Sacramento -- Wire Elementary students in South Sacramento enjoy a "Healthy Breakfast" treat while celebrating a victory with Principal Bao Moua, who dyed her hair green because students read 51,717 book pages during the school's Read-A-Thon. Principal Bao promised to dye her hair green if students read 40,000 book pages by the end of March. Apparently, students eagerly read 25% more than required to see their principal with green hair. In this case, reading connects Wire's 460 students to fun and knowledge!

Smile Keepers Promotes Healthy Teeth Program For Pre-Schoolers

Smile Keepers Promotes Healthy Teeth Program For Pre-Schoolers

Sacramento -- Smile Keepers' volunteers greet dozens of families needing information about providing proper dental health care at SCUSD's recent School Readiness Fair at The Serna Center.

Specializing in pre-school age children, Smile Keepers says parents must be aware that "baby" teeth are very important for developing proper speech, maintaining spaces and gaps for adult teeth and, of course, chewing food. Baby teeth that decay and become infected can damage the growth of adult teeth, often resulting in crooked teeth needing braces. Smile Keepers is funded by tobacco taxes through the First 5 Sacramento Commission.

For more information, contact www.first5oralhealth.org or call 916-876-5875. Smile Keepers reminds parents that if their children have Medi-Cal, Healthy Families or Healthy Kids insurance, they likely have dental care coverage.
