Back to School: Tips
Tuesday, August 06, 2019

Check out our top tips for making the Back to School transition as easy as possible.

1. Sleep

Set your kids’ sleep schedules back to “School Time” two weeks before the first day.

2. Lice check

Head lice will often do the rounds at schools at this time of year. If you need to treat your child, we will advise the best products and talk you through how to use them correctly so that they are effective.

3. Breakfast

Don’t forget about breakfast – it’s no myth that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It can be a long wait until small break, so opt for a breakfast that will fill and fuel.

4. Asthma care

This time of year with colder weather, colds and flus can lead to asthma flare-ups so please talk to us about how best to manage your children’s medicines.

5. Vitamins

It is beneficial to integrate vitamins into your child’s daily routine to help boost their immune systems and keep energy levels high.

6. Vaccinations

Stay up-to-date with your child’s vaccinations. Getting these vaccinations in younger years can help prevent harmful diseases as children grow.

7. Hand hygiene

Teaching children the basics of hand-washing with soap and water is the easiest way to prevent the spread of disease. Teach your child to lather for 20 seconds or say their ABC’s twice before washing off the soap.
