Healthy and successful: how to prepare your child for the new school year
The new school year opens up a lot of opportunities for children. This is a great chance to meet old friends, make new friends and get good grades for your efforts. And while schoolchildren are busy with their studies, parents can actively contribute to ensuring the health and well-being of their children.
There are many health hazards in a large children's team - germs can quickly spread to the hands through sneezing, coughing or touching the eyes.
Here are some basic tips to keep your kids healthy.
1. Annual medical examination. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), school-age children should visit a doctor at least once a year. During the annual examination, your pediatrician can detect health problems before the child feels unwell and eliminate them, which will allow the child to remain healthy throughout the school year. Your pediatrician can also give you tips on how to keep your baby healthy.
2. Vaccinations. Вvaccines can prevent many diseases and are not dangerous for children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Follow your pediatrician's advice and get your child regularly vaccinated, including seasonal vaccines such as the flu shot.
3. Hand washing. According to the National Institute of Health, handwashing is one of the most important ways to reduce the spread of germs. Children should wash their hands thoroughly with running water before eating and playing water, after contact with animals, playing outside or in the sand, and after using the toilet.
4. Healthy lifestyle. A lifestyle that includes regular exercise, adequate sleep, and proper nutrition can strengthen your baby’s immune system. Make sure your children eat enough fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and avoid saturated fats. In addition, add physical activity to your children's daily routine and set a reasonable sleep time.
