We are officially in cold and flu season, which means that my Target shopping cart is filled with bleach cleaners, antibacterial  wipes, hand soap and children’s pain reliever. With both kids in school, they are constantly catching viruses and generously sharing it with the rest of the family. We try to stay proactive in protecting our health during this season with flu vaccines, good hand washing habits and taking daily multi-vitamins, but there is still an increase of school absences.

Over the years I have received advice from others about how to build the kid’s immune system, one being the controversy over the flu shot. I thought it would be helpful to share some myths and facts on the topic and to do that I’m sharing this infographic from Bankers Healthcare Group.

  • Besides a stronger diet plan during the winter and more vitamins, I also use a humidifier because the dry air hurts their little honkers by making them dry. Also, they sleep better and even have healthier skin. And, the best part, you don’t have to use it just during the winter, you can actually use it throughout the year, which this mommy meteorology expert explained really well https://www.humidifiergeek.com/when-to-use-humidifier/
