Healthy and active kids are better learners. To have a great school year, kids need to stay healthy. Here are some helpful tips:
Get Your Kids Vaccinated
Children should get vaccinated as early as possible in the school year. Consult your doctor for the recommended vaccinations and consider getting the flu vaccine.
To get your kids ready to wake up earlier for school, consider making their bedtimes a little earlier each night for a week or two before school starts. Kids should get a healthy amount of sleep (over 8 hours) each night to stay focused throughout the day.
Teach Good Hygiene Habits
To help your kids avoid getting sick, teach them to wash their hands after using the restroom and before going to lunch or eating a snack.
Add Fruits and Veggies to your kid’s Lunchbox
Add a piece of fruit and vegetable to your kid’s lunchbox for a healthy diet.
Back-to-school season is stressful for kids and parents alike, but too much stress can lead to a variety of health issues, like insomnia and sluggish immune systems. Help manage stress by talking to your children about anything that’s bothering them.
Take time to Rest
Schoolwork and after-school activities are important, but it’s also essential to take time to relax, play and spend time as a family.
