Essential care for back to school.

Back to school is an exciting time for children, but it can also be a challenge to keep their health in top condition. With exposure to new environments and new classmates, the need to boost the immune system and maintain healthy habits is critical. In addition, the transition to cooler climates can take its toll on children's skin. In this blog, we'll explain how you can prepare your children for a healthy and vibrant back to school.

Boosting the immune system

The immune system is our first line of defence against illness. At school time, when children are in close contact with others, it is crucial to keep it strong. Here are some effective ways to do this:

-A Balanced Diet: A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains provides the nutrients needed for a healthy immune system. In addition, extra support for the immune system can be provided with food supplements such as Orsadin Inmun and Orsadin Biotic. And to ensure balanced nutrition, PediaSure can be added to the diet.

-Vitamin C: This vitamin is known for its ability to strengthen the immune system. Include foods such as oranges, strawberries and kiwis in your diet.

-Sufficient rest: Adequate sleep is essential for the immune system. Make sure your children get enough sleep to maintain their energy and stamina.

-Regular Exercise: Physical activity helps release endorphins and improves immune system function.

Healthy habits in the daily routine

Incorporating healthy habits into your children's daily routine is critical to their long-term wellbeing. Here are some tips to keep them healthy during the school year:

-Hand hygiene: Teach your children the importance of washing their hands regularly, especially before eating and after using the bathroom. Our recommendation is to use products such as Bioderma ABCDerm, which is a mild, soap-free cleanser that is safe and highly tolerated for the sensitive and fragile skin of babies and children.

-Drinking water: Keep your children hydrated during the school day. Water is essential for a healthy body and mind.

-Outdoor time: Encourage outdoor play and contact with nature. This helps reduce stress and improves mood.

-Stress management: Teach them stress management techniques, such as deep breathing or meditation. These skills are useful for coping with school challenges.

Skin care in changing weather

Children's skin can be particularly sensitive to changes in climate. The transition from a warm summer to a cooler autumn can affect it. Here are some tips for caring for your children's skin:

-Moisturise: Make sure they use a moisturiser suitable for their skin type, especially if their skin tends to dry out in colder weather.

-Sunscreen: Even if the days are cloudy, sunscreen is essential to protect skin from sun damage.

-Gentle cleansing: Use mild, fragrance-free cleansers to avoid irritation.

-Appropriate clothing: On cold days, dress your children in clothing that protects them from the wind and cold, and make sure they wear hats and scarves.

Preparing your children for back-to-school with these essentials will not only contribute to their wellbeing, but will also help them stay focused and ready to learn.

Maintaining a strong immune system, adopting healthy habits and taking care of their skin are pillars for a successful school season.
