Cold and flu season is here! Here’s our list of must-haves to have on hand to help your little ones through cough, cold, and flu season and fevers.
Written by: Jessica Diamond, MPH, RDN
Cold and flu season is here which also means fevers! If you haven’t listened to our podcast episode, Help! What do I feed my sick kid?, give it a listen! We share easy and practical tips for feeding and supporting our little ones during a cough, cold, or stomach virus, including what to feed them when they have no appetite, how to keep them hydrated, our favorite natural OTC remedies to reduce symptoms and the length of the illness, and how to boost their immunity along the way.
We can all relate to the helplessness and overwhelm we feel when our kid is sick, so we wanted to record an episode that would leave you feeling ready to tackle colds and flus when they inevitably hit your home!
Below is our list of must-haves from the episode. (But be sure to check with your pediatrician before introducing your child to a totally new remedy.)
