The kids are back in school, and with that comes- GERMS. I’ve shared over on Instagram a few things we do, to *try* to keep the sickness away, and even though it’s not always inevitable, I do believe something is better than nothing. So today, let’s go over Back to School health tips along with a few products I think will help with those pesky germs!
1. Stock up on the right medicine.
It’s going to be inevitable; sometimes it doesn’t matter what we do or don’t do, sometimes we get sick. And when that does happen, we make sure we stock up and have the right medicine. There is NOTHING worse than getting sick, and not having the medicine you need in the medicine cabinet. When it comes to eye care, we love using The Relief products. The homeopathic PinkEye Relief is a lifesaver (I actually had to use the PinkEye Drops a few weeks before my girls trip to Austin too).
Pink eye is SO easily spreadable with kids, and again, it’s one of those things that is nearly impossible to prevent. The PinkEye Relief eye drops are made with 100% natural active ingredients too! P.S. We also love their ear tablets, it’s been a lifesaver several times here at the house.
2. Up the vitamins and water intake.
We have the kids take vitamin c, elderberry, and daily vitamins. If we lived in a perfect world, we would eat nothing but healthy food, and get all the nutrients from our food. But we know that ain’t true!
3. Speaking of food, proper nutrition is critical.
Of course, as I said, eating perfectly every day is not going to happen. BUT we should be making healthier choices when we can. For example, the kids don’t drink soda, and we limit their juice intake as well as when it comes to snacks, I give them fruit first before actual snacks!
4. Keep a consistent schedule.
And get good sleep! Did you know most kids in the age range of 3-12 years old should be getting around 10 hours of sleep? Lights are always out by 8 P.M. here, and we try to keep the same schedule during the weekends too.
5. Teach them healthy habits.
How to wash their hands, how to take care of their bodies, etc. Colin is so extreme on this one that he even washes his hands after taking a shower. If he learns that you’re sick, he won’t come closer than 5 feet to you! He is SERIOUS about germs. Jadyn, on the other hand, cares less.
