The rainy season is probably the most frustrating time of the year for us mums. This is when our little ones get sick the most. May that be with flu or cough and colds, it really is heartbreaking for us to see our children suffer from different symptoms which also keeps them away from their favorite activities like going to school or playing outside.
It might be impossible for our children to be in the pink of health at all times, especially during the rainy season due to the weather changes but there are certain things we can do to ensure that we boost their immune system and over-all health so they will not easily catch cold and any sickness during this time.
Here are 3 ways on how you can ensure your children’s health even during the rainy season:
- Teach them to wash their hands regularly ~ a good personal hygiene is a basic building block to healthy living and this early teach your little ones to make it a habit to wash their hands regularly especially before eating, after going to the bathroom and coming home from the playground or from playschool.
- Serve them nutritious meals ~ a healthy eating habit is always key to achieving good health so make sure that you give your kiddos the right amount of vitamins and nutrients by giving them their regular serving of fruits, vegetables and other healthy food.
- Give them vitamins ~ to boost their immune system and ensure that they do not easily catch different weather-related ailments, it is best to give them a dose of Vitamin C, as well as other essential nutrients, found in children’s vitamins and other food supplements, to keep them protected and keep the illnesses at bay.
