Top 2 Tips for a Healthy Back-to-School Season
As students regretfully begin to say goodbye to their summer freedom and return to classes, parents are hoping their children will start off the school year on a positive and healthy note. Getting kids ready to begin the school year involves more than finding the perfect backpack, buying school supplies, and shopping for new clothes. It means safeguarding their health, as well.
Here are a couple of essential tips to get your kid’s ready for a healthy start to their back-to-school transition.
1. Managing Digestive Issues
Many kids are picky eaters, especially when they are young. Even though you may pack a lunch and snacks, kids have minds of their own. Unfortunately, during daycare and school hours, parents cannot always control what their children are eating. The result is often sharing food, buying snacks, and coming home with a stomach ache.
Tummy aches affect lots of kids, so your family isn't alone. Give them something at the beginning of each day to support their digestive system.
Start your child’s day off with a yogurt-based smoothie. Yogurt is full of living, helpful “friendly bacteria” called probiotics. Probiotics have been linked to all sorts of health benefits. They can help digest food and get rid of bad germs. Supplement the smoothie with a dose of probiotic powder for extra support.
2. Immune Support
Students are going to be spending large amounts of time in classrooms with each other, so naturally, there will be a dramatic increase in germ exposure and potential for kids to get sick. Probiotics support the body’s natural defenses, starting in the digestive tract by naturally restoring the balance of “good” bacteria.
Studies show that probiotics are a safe and effective method to help boost the immune system of children and reduce the number of missed school days due to illness. They are a great preventative step to help ensure your student’s health and wellness throughout the year.
Probiotics are Great for Kids
Probiotics (beneficial live bacteria that live inside us) can support a healthy beginning to a new school year. The digestive system has a big impact on the overall wellness of our children. About 80 percent of your immune system lives in your digestive tract, so a healthy and balanced digestive system plays a very important role in strengthening your children’s overall health and well-being. Probiotics can help.
But not just any old probiotics will do. Do your research to pick the perfect probiotic for your child is key.
