Paediatricians recommend taking special care of kids younger than five to prevent them from getting severely ill.
Providing healthy snacks and meals can help kids to improve their immune system and it can fight off the flu.
Limiting junk food and provide plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean meat, and water is a good recommendation.
Enough sleep can also help children develop a more robust immune system and prevent them from getting sick.
Every meal must begin with a hand washing for children. They should routinely wash their hands, especially after touching their faces or getting home from school.
School is a typical location for the spread of viruses during the flu and cold season, teach your child how to avoid touching their faces or sharing food or beverages there.
You can also provide them with a small bottle of hand sanitiser to help them keep their hands clean.
