Good health and healthy lifestyle choices can have a positive impact on your child’s life -- not just when they’re ill,

but every day. Make sure your child does these:

  • Get plenty of sleep.
    • Children should get 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.
  • Be physically active! Any physical activity will help develop your child's muscles and mind. Have the entire family get involved in exercising.
  • Add plenty of color to your diet when eating the five recommended fruits and vegetables every day -- the darker the color the more vitamins the whole family is eating.
  • Wash your hands often. Children should be taught at the earliest age to wash their hands before meals, after bathroom use, after play.
  • Keep clean. Washing hair and body on a daily basis will prevent skin and/or hair infections and infestations.
  • “Sneeze in Sleeve!” Any time a person has to sneeze or cough they should do it in their sleeve/arm.
  • Don't share. Keep your personal belongings (combs, sweaters, drinking bottles) to yourself and don't use others.
  • Stay home when you’re ill. Don't send children to school if they have a temperature.
