Do you worry about your child coming down with the class illness? When it comes to our families, we want to keep our kids out of harm’s way. While these 5 easy steps won’t guarantee 100% that your child won’t catch a cold or flu, but they are ways to keep kids healthy and can help boost your child’s immune system.

5 ways to keep kids healthy


This post is in partnership with Halls. All opinions are my own.

#1) EAT A BALANCED DIET → we all know the saying “You are what you eat”. Making sure that kids eat a balanced diet will keep their immune system strong. Even if your child won’t eat meat find a protein alternative.

#2) EXERCISE → keeping our kids active is a great way to keep them healthy. While schools are doing more and more to keep the kids active during the school day, simple things like walking or biking to school can add some great physical activity during the day.

#3) HYGIENE → bathing and washing is an important part of staying healthy. Especially as kids get older the oils and odors that come from their body, need to be washed off on a daily basis.

#4) SLEEP → I always say that when you get enough sleep you can do anything! This is so true. Making sure kids get to bed at a decent hour and getting a good sleep will keep them alert so the can focus on their school work.

#5) TAKE VITAMINS DAILY → eating a balanced diet will help make sure your child is receiving the right amount of nutrients. However, taking daily supplements like a Halls vitamin C pop will help support the maintenance of good health.

Hall Pops for Kids

Even if we do all the above there are times when your child will develop a cold with sniffles and a sore throat. During these times when our children are sick, we want to give them relief from their symptoms.

Halls Pops for kids will soothe sore throats and relieve those pesky coughs. With delicious flavors like cherry and strawberry, your child will enjoy these pops while soothing their sore throat.

Look for HALLS KIDS Cough & Sore Throat Pops and HALLS KIDS Vitamin C Supplement Pops at your local pharmacy!

Keep in mind, Halls Pops should not be used for children under the age of 4 due to choking hazards.
