Eating healthy food is an important part of having a strong immune system.
Kids should eat vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
They also need to drink lots of water and stay away from sugary drinks and junk food. Pouring milk on cereal or eating cheese with crackers for snacks is a good way to start the day.
Get Your Kids Vaccinated!
Vaccinating your children is an easy way to protect them from serious diseases – some of which can be fatal if left untreated. Immunizations are available for many different types of infections, including polio, hepatitis, measles, mumps and rubella.
Most schools require kids to have certain immunizations before they can attend school and it’s important to keep up-to-date with any new vaccinations that are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
TV Time and Computer Time should be Limited
TV and computer time should be limited. Kids should still get enough sleep, eat healthy, exercise, and go outside.
