How to Stay Healthy this Winter
With winter just around the corner we need to up our game to help keep the bugs outside.
There are a few options when trying to boost your family’s immune system. Here are just a few ideas on how to get ready and to try and avoid getting sick during the next few cold months.
Let’s start with the basic stuff.
If your kids enjoy a balanced diet then they are already on the right path to staying healthy. Nutrients from a balanced diet is better absorbed by the body.
Make sure your children continue to drink water during the winter months. It may be a little bit more difficult, but it really does make a difference.
Kids enjoy playing outdoors. Take advantage of that and let them get as much exercise as possible. Enough oxygen and energy will do wonders for their bodies.
Be sure that the entire family wash their hands often and for at least 20. Check that the kids wash their hands after they played outside, before mealtime and after their visit to the bathroom. For extra protection, keep a hand sanitizer next to your basin just to be more sure.
Providing your kids with a daily supplement might be beneficial to some families. But like I mentioned before, enjoying a well-balanced diet is always best. Be sure to check with your GP before giving your kids any supplements.
Without starting a debate, I would recommend making sure your kids’ vaccinations are up to date.
Getting enough sleep allows the body to build your immune. A newborn may need up to 18 hours of crib time a day, toddlers require 12-13 hours. Preschoolers need about 10 hours. If your child can’t or won’t take naps during the day, try putting them to bed earlier at night. If your little one struggles to fall asleep or is very restless during the night, try out our range of Kiddy-Calm or Pure-Thaim products. It is known for their benefits and to improve sleep.
Breastfeeding has so many advantages for baby, especially when it comes to their healthy. When and if possible, breastfeed your baby for as long as you can to help protect and boost their immune system.
During this difficult time, try to stay indoors with your kids as much as possible to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, when you do have to go outside, be responsible by wearing your mask at all times and only shop for essentials.
So, with that said. Stay warm, stay healthy, stay safe!
