Is your child monsoon ready?

We all love the rains. Sitting by the window, enjoying the rain while sipping some tea and munching on pakoras. Don’t we? But when you hear your little one cough or sneeze and all the monsoon thrill goes down the drain.

Monsoon requires us as parents to be more vigilant with our kid’s health. Here are some tips and pointers which can help us protect our children during the rainy season.

  1. Keep the surrounding clean

    With rain comes mosquitoes and flies. To keep them off your house limits, make sure you remove any stagnant water that has been collected. Like in plant trays or at the windowpane. Keep windows drawn when its raining. Make sure the walls are dry and not moist with water.

  2. Food and nutrition

    The one thing that we can do the best is make sure our kids are consuming healthy food. Include lots of warm soup in their diet. Also add lots of fruits and veggies to build on their immunity. Avoid outside food as much as you can.

  3. Hand wash

    Make sure your kids are washing their hands regularly with an antiseptic hand wash. Make it a practice to wash their hands when they come home from outside or before their meal. Because anyone can carry disease causing germs and if hands not washed, these germs can make their way into the kids stomach and cause illness.

  4. Filter and boiled water

    Drinking water can be contaminated with mosquitoes and flies around them. The best is to first use filter water and boil it before giving it to kids to make it extra safe for them to consume.

  5. Rain Gear

    Kids need to step out for school and classes. Equip them with proper rain gear like umbrella or raincoats and boots to make sure they don’t get wet.
