5 Healthy Tips for Back-to-School

It’s back to school time again and with it comes the common cold season. With so many kids indoors for extended periods of time, it’s an ideal setting for spreading germs. With sneezes, sniffles, runny noses and coughs, cold viruses fly through the air and can land anywhere. According to The Centers for Disease Control, 22 million absences are attributed to colds alone. So how do you reduce your child’s risk of getting the cold and improve their chances of staying healthy as school resumes? Here are few things to make sure they do:

  • Get sufficient sleep. At least 10 hours per day for Elementary school aged kids
  • Get lots of exercise to help boost their immune system
  • Drink lots of water to help stay hydrated
  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cough & sneeze into a tissue or sleeve, not into hands

These are just a few simple things we can do to help our kids stay healthy during school. Of course there are lots more ways to stay healthy like starting the day off with breakfast and eating nutritious meals throughout the day. And an After-School Martial Arts program is a great way for them to get their exercise in. Remember, if we set a good example, our kids will follow suit.
