Simplify the Season : Put Together a Sick Kit
If you have little ones, there’s a pretty good chance that at some point in the next few months someone’s going to get sick. And for whatever reason it seems to always comes at the busiest most inopportune time. Am I right? I always put together a little sick kit in the fall just in case. (For the record, I am ALL about prevention: vitamins, eating lots of fruits and veggies, hand washing, frequent cleaning….but we still get sick.)
Some things you might include (these are all items that are readily available at most stores – I didn’t include other natural items (like probiotics and essential oils) that we have in our medicine cabinet):
- ginger ale/ gatorade/
- cough syrup/cough drops/cold tablets
- charcoal tablets
- activity books
What would you add to the kit? Do you plan ahead for illness to strike or just wait and see?
