A Night of Inspiration: For Families Navigating High School

November Healthy News Blast

November 2017
·      To help prevent getting or spreading the flu at school, it is important to:
-   Get a flu shot every year (everyone over 6 months of age).
-   Teach children to wash their hands often, for 20 seconds.
-   Teach children to cough or sneeze into their arm or a tissue, not their hands.
-   Avoid touching hands to face.
-   Clean and disinfect common surfaces.
-   Keep children home when they are sick.
·      Get your kids excited about eating veggies & fruit by getting them involved in the kitchen. Cooking is educational and fun! Kids will learn about food, nutrition, math and science, and will develop important food and social skills. Research shows that children who prepare their own food are more likely to eat it. Cooking helps children build confidence and important life skills, for example:  
-       They develop motor skills like chopping, slicing, grating, and mixing.
-       Learn how to organize ingredients.
-       Follow instructions.
-       Learn the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon, and different measuring cups.
Cooking is also a great way to spend time with your child, share cultural traditions, and talk about your day.

·      Drinking water is good for you and your teeth! Other drinks (for example, juice) can leave sugars on your teeth, which may cause cavities. Drinks such as pop are high in acid, which can harm your teeth. Water can keep your mouth healthy by “cleaning” food away, and because it’s sugar-free, it won’t leave any sugar behind on your teeth. Drink up!
