You and little ones are all ready to hit the ground running on their first day of school. This is going to be the best year yet! And with your support, there is nothing that they can’t accomplish.
Heading back to school can also mean being exposed to germs and fighting illness. It is important for kids to eat a healthy diet and get plenty of rest so their bodies stay healthy. But can you do more?
It may be a challenge to keep them well, but there are a few habits that can help your kids fight the germs that cause illness and give them a fighting chance to stay healthy!
Back to School Stay Healthy Tips
- “Always cover coughs and sneezes. Fail to do so can spread diseases.” Teach kids to “cover” their coughs and sneezes by coughing into the crook of their arm if they don’t have a tissue. This way the germs aren’t “caught” in their hands and spread to surfaces and other children by their hands.
- Keep hands away from eyes and mouth. Hands are often covered in germs. Eyes, nose, and mouth are the entry points for germs to get into our body and make us sick.
- Don’t share water bottles or food. Anything that goes in your mouth should not be shared with your friends.
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer. This is probably the expert’s number 1 rule to cut down on colds and flu. Teach kids to sing “Happy Birthday” while washing their hands to ensure that they get good and clean. Wash hands or use hand sanitizer especially before eating.
- Play! Getting plenty of exercise helps your body and mind stay healthy.
- Eat healthy foods. Eating a balanced diet is the best thing for growing bodies.
- Sleep. Nothing prepares a child more to succeed in school than getting a good nights rest.
