This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I have kids, which means it's a constant struggle to balance the sometimes not-so-clean activities of young kids without becoming the anti-bacterial gel wielding mom. This year has been especially bad and while I'm tempted to sanitize every surface they *might* touch, I also want my kids to be able to just be kids, too. I want to make sure they can see and play with their friends and not miss out on crucial lessons, and I definitely don’t want them missing out on summer fun due to illness. To combat illness, we implement these basic rules for keeping healthy:
1) Wash hands frequently, and make sure kids know how to wash properly.
2) Staying home when we’re sick – no need to send the illness around the playground, library, or playdate.
3) Keep a healthy routine. With healthy amounts of activity, good diets, and plenty of sleep, we manage to avoid quite a few illnesses a year.
