Important reminders to help with virus prevention
(NC) With cold and flu season upon us, parents often worry about how to keep their kids from coming down with sore throats, runny noses, coughs and fevers. To minimize the spread of such viruses, and to protect your child from experiencing the symptoms, take a look at these simple but important tips:
1. Cover your mouth when you sneeze. Cold and flu viruses are often spread through sneezing. Make sure everyone in the family coughs or sneezes into their sleeve to help prevent the spread of germs.
2. Wash your hands. Teaching your children to wash their hands properly is essential for staving off viruses. There are even some innovative soap brands to make it lots of fun. Kandoo moisturizing hand soap, for example, contains Vitamin E and natural fruit extracts to moisturize while cleaning. It pumps out bright, colourful foam which makes hand washing fun by letting your child see when they are covered with soap which can lead to a better clean.
3. Eat and sleep well. Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep, drinks lots of fluids and eats nutritious foods. The right amount of nutritious food and sleep will help to keep a little one healthy and will guard against sickness during the cold winter months.
