5 Tips for Cough and Cold Season

Boost Your Defenses.  At the earliest sign of getting a cough or cold, start taking extra vitamin C. Whether it’s through an extra glass of orange juice or a chewable vitamin, every little bit helps.

Hygiene  Matters.  Wash your hands frequently, and especially after you’ve been to the pharmacy, doctor’s office, etc. Kids like to get their hands into everything, so this is especially important with little ones.

Get Plenty of Rest.  Most people don’t realize how much good a good long day of rest can do when you’re sick. Children especially need lots of sleep to recuperate.

Stay Hydrated. That’s a big one. Preferably by drinking orange juice and water.

Don’t Be a Germ Spreader!  Teach children to cough into their arm (at the elbow) and not their hands.
