The cold months are upon us, and although the season brings much cheer, it also makes kids more susceptible to illnesses. It is up to moms everywhere to be more vigilant in boosting their children's immunity and warding off sickness.
Preventing your child from falling ill doesn't mean she can't have any fun during this sweater weather. Let your child go about his usual activities while you follow these four easy ways to keep him strong and healthy.
1. Complete your child's cold-weather gear.
However cold it may get, be sure your child has everything he needs to stay warm. Wrap her up in comfortable and lightweight jackets, sweaters, or scarves especially when she's going out to play. Pick out pieces in her favorite colors and designs, so she'll be more enticed to properly dress for the weather.
2. Keep your child's room warm and cozy.
Make sure your little one can retreat to a warm and cozy environment after a full day of activities out in the cold. Nothing can be more welcoming and comforting than a warm home. In your child's room, you can turn off the air conditioning and shut the windows to prevent cold draft from entering.
3. Prepare hot meals and drinks.
Keep your child fueled by cooking up hot meals and preparing warm drinks. Soup, porridge, and hot chocolate are perfect nutrition buddies for the cold weather. If she's heading out, hand him a tumbler filled with his favorite warm drink, so she can stay snug.
4. Give your child his daily dose of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is vital in boosting a child’s immunity. Aside from Vitamin C-rich food, you can give your kid Scott’s Pastilles, which comes in kid-approved flavors (Orange and Mixed Berries).
