Your kids are so excited to get back to school! Okay, maybe not. But I bet you’re ready to send them off. How are you going to keep your kids healthy this year? I know it’s so tough to control the school environment with classmates passing around germs. Here are some great tips and products to keep your family healthy this school year!
Open up your home. The pollution inside our homes is worse than outside. Air fresheners only make it worse by covering up smells, not eliminating them, and add unsafe toxins to your home. Try using natural and non-toxic cleaning choices that are safe for you, your home and the planent, called Get Clean!
Here’s what other mom’s are saying about staying healthy this school year!
Chrystal, from Happy Mothering, says to try and eat a whole foods diet and cut back on sugar intake.
Ashely, author of The Reynolds Mom, suggests washing lunch boxes and backpacks frequently, get plenty of sleep and keep a routine. She also agrees with Chrystal, make healthy snacks for kids, nothing processed!
Alicia, from Green Lifestyle Consulting, recommends drinking lots of water and sending your kids to school with reusable water bottles. Also, try eating more organic foods. Start with the “Dirty Dozen.”
Nicole, who writes at Some Call It Natural, feels it’s important to pack a lunch everyday and not buy school lunch! She suggests packing it the night before so there is never an excuse and you don’t run out of time in the morning. And if recess has been taken away at your child’s school, make sure your kids get outside for at least 30 minutes a day.
Along with taking vitamins, Nicole, author of Mom Always Finds Out, gives her children probiotics to naturally support digestive health and the immune system.
