Simple Ways to Protect Your Child from Sniffles and Colds

Posted on 01-15-2016


Every loving parent seeks to protect their children from bothersome colds and sniffles. Infants, toddlers, and preschool children should be busy growing, learning and having fun, instead of dealing with the discomforts of a cold. When they are not feeling well it interrupts the normal activities of parents and children. Parents go out of their way dressing their children to stay warm during winter months and preparing healthy meals for good nutrition. With all of the efforts to avoid colds, there are a few additional steps to consider.

As you take precautions to keep your child healthy consider these simple ways to protect your child from sniffles and colds.

  • As you prepare meals, include protein options, and plenty of fruit and vegetables for your developing child to enjoy. Also avoid excessive fast food and sweets that have very low nutritional value.
  • Demonstrate proper hand washing. Talk about the importance of washing after bathroom breaks, before meals, after playing with pets, and after playing outside.
  • Carry hand wipes or sanitizer with you to clean your child’s hands when soap and water are not available.
  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep. Young children need adequate sleep for their growing body, to strengthen their immune system, and to stay alert when attending preschool.

If your child spends the day at home, in daycare, childcare, or preschool, it’s important to minimize the risks of sniffles and colds. Try to make healthy habits fun with creative bedtime routines and fun songs during hand washing.
