With summer half way through already, I’m sure there’s still lots planned from trips to the beach, nature treks, museum outings, summer camps, swimming dates and theme park stops.
The kids will be around a bunch of other kids and the last thing you would want is your child coming home with something viral. While you can’t avoid the cold bug and icky germs, you can do your best to prevent the same by equipping your child with these 5 suggested must dos.
5 ways to keep your kids healthy this summer.
1. Build up their immunity with a daily intake of citrus, be it in the form of fresh juice or as fruit.
2. Ensure they drink lots of water even if they don’t feel thirst. Dehydration is a silent body basher!
Here are a few suggestions on travel snacks you can pack for your kids (My kids love every snack mentioned on the list, so it extends beyond the toddler palette)
4. Remind them to wash their hands with soap as often as possible especially when they come home after going out and before meals. Kids should also be reminded to cough and sneeze into their arms, not bite their nails or put their fingers into their mouths, carry an anti-bacterial travel sanitizer when going out and try to avoid holding hands with other kids.
5. Encourage your kids to stay active. True it may be too hot to play outdoors but there are several sports you can play indoors. My kids play soccer through the year but this summer they switched to playing volleyball and basketball.
Ugh! I think my child caught something. Sick just got real!
