On average, elementary school children get up to 12 colds or cases of the flu each school year. Many parents and teachers refer to it as the back-to-school plague. But there are ways to keep your little scholars healthy. Here's Holly Firfer with today's Health Minute. Back to school is always an exciting time. But sharing classrooms with lots of children can also lead to health problems. That's because when children are younger, they touch their faces, mouths and noses and then touch other kids, which is how they pick up all kinds of germs, like colds, pink eye and strep throat. What to do to protect your little ones? Avoid the water fountain. Have your child bring their own water bottles to school and ask them not to share with anyone. Use hand sanitizer, especially before eating their lunch. Cafeteria trays are a hot bed of nasty gerrms. Make sure your child gets enough rest to keep the immune system healthy. Sleep experts say 10 to 11 hours of sleep a night is the best. Keep your kids active and well fed. A good nutricious breakfast, including vitamin C, can build energy and resistance to germs. And, doctors say, bundle up their overcoats. Studies have shown people who protect themselves from "Old Man Winter's" wrath are less likely to catch colds later on in the year. All good tips to keep the germs away from your school kids, as well as your family.
