Deck the halls with…Tissues?

November 14, 2011

It’s that time of the year again. No, not Christmas time. It’s the holiday’s unwelcome cousin, the flu. That’s right, flu season is upon us. But before you deck the halls with cough medicine and boxes of tissues, check out’s tips on how to keep your child (and you!) healthy during the flu season.

They remind you to practice your own cold and flu hygiene, so your children can follow your lead. Make sure you wash your hands – throughout the day! Teach your children to cough into their elbow, and to always wash their hands after coughing or sneezing into them.

Kaboose also lets us know that, the healthier we are, the better we can fight off that pesky flu. So start off strong, eat healthy, and build up that immune system. Serve foods rich in Vitamin C such as oranges, tomatoes and red peppers – and make sure to get a full night’s sleep.

Check out their helpful cold and flu home-care checklist, do you have everything? This list include’s everything from chicken soup to vapor rub. Stock up!
