Cold and Flu Season Tips

School is in session and that means closer contact to other kids. If you follow the Powell Pediatrics Blog, you will recall that taking care during cold and flu season is extremely important, especially if you don’t want them to miss any classes.

Washing Hands

Everyone knows how important it is to wash hands. Make sure your kids clean up after school and before meals. Pack hand sanitizer and wipes in their backpacks as well.

Coughing and Sneezing

If you notice your son or daughter coughing or sneezing keep them at home. The last thing you want to do is exposure some one elses child to the nasty flu your kids have.

Eat a Well Balanced Diet

Diet plays a huge roll in the health and well-being of your family. Steer clear of junk food and keep lots of healthy snacks such as celery and carrot sticks in the fridge.

Regular Checkups

Regular checkups are vital during the cold and flu season. Call and schedule checkups for your children with Powell Pediatrics today.
