#1 - Wash Those Hands! We hear it every year and yet how well do you wash your hands? It’s crucial to remind everyone in your family of the importance of washing their hands, especially kids. Teach your kids to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while they are washing their hands with soap to make sure they get well washed on both sides and in between fingers.

#2 - Get the Shot. If not for yourself get the flu shot for those who can’t, like babies and people with compromised immune systems. It will help keep to them healthy too. If you haven’t already, be sure to make an appointment for the whole family. The earlier the better, as it takes 2 weeks once you’ve received the shot for it to provide protection against the flu.  

#3 - Use a Good Quality Vitamin.  If your family doesn’t already take a daily vitamin, winter is a good time to start making it part of your daily routine. Vitafusion Multivites for adults and L’il Critters GummyVites for kids are a tasty way to make sure every family member takes their vitamins, no water needed! Consider also adding vitamin D and C in the winter months, L’il Critters Immune C combines vitamin C, zinc, echinacea and vitamin D to support the immune system and overall good health.  Vitafusion Power C contains more vitamin C than 10 tangerines in each daily serving and the Vitafusion Vitamin D gummies help in the absorption of calcium and the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.

#4 - Have a Sick Day Plan. It’s going to happen, kids get sick. If they got their flu shot, then hopefully it’s mild and they mend quickly. Regardless, before you get that dreaded call from your child’s school that they are sick, have a sick-day plan in place where you ask a friend or family member if they would be comfortable looking after a sick child for you in advance. Be sure to bring them a great bottle of wine or chocolates to thank them!

#5 - Keep Surfaces Clean. Germs are everywhere, but some places are worse than others- surfaces you touch every day, multiple times a day without even thinking about it. Door knobs, your phone and your TV remote - what’s the first thing you do when you are home sick?  Watch TV. Think about the last time you wiped off your remote. Use a non-toxic plant-based cleaner on door knobs, taps and surfaces in your home to keep them clean and germ free.
