As we are in the prime season of colds, sickness and flu bugs we are taking steps we can control to boost our immune systems here in our home! I like a healthy and happy home with healthy and happy kiddos and adults! Agree? It makes for a much more pleasant home. Here are ways we are boosting our immune systems and prepping, this doesn’t mean we won’t catch a bug but I’m prepping as though we won’t or if we do we can fight it off quickly!
1- Taking Pro Biotics
Having these for us all really helps strength our guts to prevent sickness! Adults to children- it’s a good daily supplement to take and incorporate into your routine. We found a toddler probiotic: SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete which is amazing with NO junk in them–> i.e. non GMO, no colorings, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives!! Those are HUGE and top on my priority list for our little one. They even taste yummy – like you want more than you need per day kind of taste yummy!!! On the plus side they really are more than just a probiotic they combine multi-strain probiotics and Wellmune® prebiotic immune support, all in one.

2- Cutting out refined sugar
We made Thanksgiving weekend our last weekend for refined sugar for awhile. This only weakens the immune system so out it goes! I will have to do some Christmas baking and I’m sure there will be some Christmas parties we’ll sneak a treat but over-all it’s out!
3- Staying active
Exercise helps strength the immune system and we are striving to get more of this into our daily routines. It’s hard when dad leaves the house before sunrise and now with the time change usually gets home after sunset. So even if we can incorporate this into our schedules 3 times a week, right now that would be a huge asset.
Yep proactively cleaning! Staying on top of all of the small things i.e. disinfecting door knobs/handles, countertops, washing our hands more often, washing blankets and clothing articles i.e. jackets/sweaters more.
