Tips to help ease the symptoms of colds & sniffles
Children commonly experience cold and sniffles, especially during the colder months exhibiting symptoms such as a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing coughing, and occasional low-grade fever. These symptoms can be bothersome for children causing discomfort and affecting their daily activities. Below are some general advice and tips to help your children feel better:
Rest and sleep: Ensure that your child gets plenty of rest and sleep to aid in their recovery. Resting allows their body to focus on fighting off the virus.
Hydration: Encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids such as water, clear broths, and warm herbal teas. Staying hydrated helps to loosen congestion and prevents dehydration.
A balanced diet: To prevent sniffles and boost immunity, give your child various fruits, veggies, grains, lean meats, and healthy fats. Vital for a strong immune system.
Encourage proper hand hygiene: Teach your child to wash their hands frequently with soap and water, especially after sneezing, coughing or blowing their nose. This helps prevent the spread of germs.
Maintain a clean environment: Regularly disinfect surfaces and toys that your child frequently touches to reduce the chance of reinfection.
If your child’s symptoms worsen or persist for an extended period, it’s advisable to consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation and guidance.
