While you may be dreading the advent of winter, the chances are that your children don't feel the same way at all. With winter comes a chance of snow, and even if there are no snowmen or sledging trips to be had, there's a high likelihood your children will be keen to get out to play despite dropping temperatures. However, you may find yourself worried about the wellbeing of your children during the colder months. While winter bugs are likely to present themselves to your little ones, there are ways for you to keep bugs at bay and boost your child's immune system. One of the best ways to protect your children from germs is to teach them to regularly wash their hands (and for you to do it too, of course). Make sure they know to wash their hands properly every time they go to the toilet and after - as well as before eating food - rather than just dunking their hands under the tap,Burberry Cachemire écharpe soldes
, they wash both the backs and palms of their hands for between 15 and 20 seconds. You don't need to invest in an expensive handwash, as long as you provide old fashioned soap and water your children will have all they need to scrub up well. You should also make sure your little ones know that they should be keeping their hands clean the rest of the time too. For example, after they've been touching their mouth,Burberry Cachemire écharpe
, nose or eyes as well as any time they've been coughing or sneezing. This is to stop them spreading any germs they may have picked up already. It's also important to make sure they understand that they should use a tissue when sneezing too - that way you can catch the germs and dispose of them safely. If you want to cut the chances of your little one coming into contact with germs you should teach them not to share food and drink,Burberry Shawl Scarf
, especially with anyone who has a winter bug already, as this is one way for germs to be easily shared. However, if your child does become ill and wants nothing more than to sleep,2jWpBurberry foulard noir pendulum springs
, then encourage them to stay home and do so - this gives them the chance of a faster recovery and also has the benefit of reducing the chances their germs will be spread around. Making sure children follow a healthy and balanced diet is a great way to help them fight off infections. What's more, encouraging them to exercise can make a real difference too - as overweight children can be more prone to picking up bugs. By following this simple advice, you're protecting your children from winter bugs and making it more likely they'll be able to avoid a visit to a children's hospital during this cold season.
