Helping Your Child Avoid Colds and Sniffles

Posted on 01-15-2016

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Wake Forest goes far beyond a typical daycare or childcare experience to keep your child safe and comfortable. We understand a caring parent’s desire to provide the best for their growing child including taking steps to avoid colds and sniffles. Like parents, our desire is for infants, toddlers, and preschool children to enjoy learning and growing instead of wrestling with the discomforts of not feeling well.

As you take steps to keep your child healthy at home, consider these simple ways to protect your child from sniffles and colds.

  • When you prepare your meals, include healthy choices like protein, plenty vegetables and fruit. Your child is growing and needs the nutrition for healthy development. Also avoid excessive sweets and fast food with low nutritional value.
  • Show your child how to adequately wash his hands. Discuss the key times to wash his hands including before meals, after bathroom breaks, after playing outside, and after playing with pets.
  • Carry hand sanitizer and wipes when you go out to keep your child’s hands clean when soap and water are not available.
  • Make sure your child gets enough sleep. Young children need adequate sleep for their developing and growing body to stay healthy. Adequate sleep also helps them stay alert when learning in preschool.
  • Make healthy habits fun with silly songs during hand washing and creative bedtime routines.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Wake Forest, we understand the importance of a safe and nurturing environment where children can learn, grow, and enjoy their day. That’s why our staff is trained in First Aid/CPR, Infectious Disease Control, Injury Prevention, and Child Abuse Awareness. Feel free to contact us for more information about our programs and the many steps we take to keep your child thriving with Kids ‘R’ Kids of Wake Forest.
