As we get nearer to the “back to school” frenzy, make sure you and your kids are practicing good hygiene. Take a look at these three tips to send your kids to school equipped to prevent illness. These tips translate easily to anyone, though! When you go to work, practice these steps and stay healthy.
- One of the best ways to stay healthy and avoid getting sick is to wash your hands. Teach your kids to wash their hands before eating, after playing outside, and after using the restroom. This is essential as they are going to be around many other kids, where germs spread like wild fire.
- Talk to your kids about covering their mouth when they cough or sneeze. I won’t remind you of the speed at which particles shoot out of the mouth when sneezing…
- Get your flu vaccine. No one wants the flu. You don’t want to see your kids get the flu. Send them to school prepared.
Once cold and flu season arrive, be sure to keep the surfaces in your home clean as well. Keep a little Red Juice and a cleaning cloth around for quick cleaning. You’ll be glad when you’ve avoided the back to school illnesses!
