For mum and children

It is important for mums to sit down with children and talk about the flu, colds, and Covid-19. The basics to staying safe and healthy during the cold and flu seasons are the same for mums and children. Maintain those healthy habits and encourage your kids to maintain them as well:

-Washing hands frequently with soap and water

-Using hand sanitizer all time especially when your out 

-Use tissues for coughs and sneezes and dispose them immediately

-Limit your outing as much as possible, especially if you feel sick 

-Eat healthy and exercise regularly

Children can find it hard to stick to those healthy habits, that is why you should set an example to your little ones.
