I arrived to the event early and was greeted with an adorable array of kid-inspired foods and treats.
On the menu were: Chicken Tinga Tacos, mini-grilled cheese, short rib chocolate stout pop-tarts, oatmeal cookies with Chocolate-Milk shots, homemade chicken noodle soup (I wanted to steal all of these mini cans), citrus cured salmon with Herb Mustard & Micro Greens, and Refueling Banana and PB Pizzas.
We then were taken to the classroom. where we were schooled in germs. According to Dr. Shapiro, half of students don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. Even worse - desks often have MORE BACTERIA than a toilet seat!!! GROSS!!
After a short Q&A we were handed goodie bags full of Children and Infants Advil, Children's Robitussin and Children's Dimetapp.
I enjoyed this event very much and appreciated the opportunity to learn a little bit more about these medicines, and how I can try to prevent sickness in my home and for my child(ren). Though of course, the take-away is that sickness is pretty much unavoidable in some cases, no matter how hard you try. But by teaching your kids good hygiene and proper hand washing, you can at least decrease your chances of illness and hopefully have a few less #sickjustgotreal moments in your life!
Have you, or your little one, managed to avoid getting sick so far this winter? If so, good for you....now share your tips!
