Motion sickness is a kind of nausea which happens while travelling in a vehicle or a plane. It is very common to be seen in your kids. It is very to similar to the feeling you experience in a roller coaster and in other similar amusement park rides. It arises when the brain receives visual messages that don’t match with the ones picked up by the body’s motion and balance sensors. Motion sickness progresses from a feeling of uneasiness to sweating and/or dizziness. This is usually quickly followed by nausea and/or vomiting.

Talking about breakfast, I wake up to a bowl of Nature’s Path hot cereals. It’s easy yet deliciously stomach filling heathy option and my whole family loves it. Nature’s Path only uses ingredients as allowed by the National Organic Standards. Sometimes I just wonder why we love this brand so much? I guess, maybe because they are among one of the best Canadian brand who are celebrating 30 years of successfully providing us with some of the finest organic healthy products. No artificial or chemical preservatives such as BHA or BHT have been added to the cereal. They take extra care to store the cereal in a cool dark place in order to preserve freshness. The water used in the cereal is filtered through a fine mesh filter to remove any impurities that might affect the flavour of the product.
Whenever we go to Costco we never forget to grab few boxes of Nature’s Path’s cereal. I have tried many other brands, but I found this one to be the finest. If you open a corn flakes box from this brand, you will get distinct pieces of flakes till the last . That’s the real beauty of these products.
