We could all use a pick-me-up during the winter months, and that includes kids. We’ve got four easy-to-remember, healthy tips for kids to help them feel good inside when it’s cold outside.
1. G-iving back
Even little kids can make a big impact when volunteering in their community. Whether it’s by planting flowers at a community garden or visiting residents in a retirement home, the benefits for children are invaluable. Volunteering teaches kids about compassion, empathy and tolerance, and to appreciate responsibility.1
2. O-utdoor Play
Yes, it’s cold out, so layer up! Outdoor play is an essential part of supporting kids’ immune health in winter. It helps them expend energy for more restful sleep, and exposes them to vitamin D from the sun, which is both harder to get in winter and an important part of building up a healthy immune system.2
“Kids thrive when they have routines,” says Pediatrician Dr. Jen Trachtenberg°, a paid spokesperson for Culturelle®. But routines are best established when parents are organized, and the shorter winter days always seem to leave less time to get it all done. Preparing school lunches the night before helps reduce chaos in the morning—and older kids can help prepare their lunch for the next day. They may need a little coaxing, but helping out around the house makes kids feel good inside!
4. D-aily Probiotic
Being Good Inside means supporting a healthy immune system in kids. A daily probiotic helps children maintain a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in their digestive system, where 70% of their immune system resides.* Culturelle® Kids Daily Probiotic Chewables are formulated to help safely populate the intestinal tract with good bacteria to support a healthy immune system in children.* Culturelle® Kids Chewables contain 100% Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®), the proven effective probiotic strain.⌘Each berry-flavored tablet contains five billion live active cultures (CFUs), is easy to chew and is gluten,≠ dairy≠≠ and sugar free.≠≠≠
