It’s been a challenging winter with record-breaking low temperatures and plenty of snow. Right about now, most families are wishing for spring—and the last thing they need is a cold or the flu invading their home.

So, it’s really important for everyone in the family (not just the little ones!) to get a plenty of sleep each night, eat healthy foods, and practice good hygiene with lots of hand washing.

When kids are encouraged to follow healthy routines, they stand a better chance of staying healthy through the winter. But sometimes these efforts just aren’t enough. When a family member shows early signs of a cold or flu, parents can consider natural, homeopathic cold and flu remedies from our sponsor, Hyland’s. Its Hyland’s 4 Kids Complete Cold ’n Flu, for example, is safe enough for kids as young as two years old because it does not contain commonly used pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, or ibuprofen. Instead, the homeopathic formula uses natural ingredients to help relieve the symptoms of a cold or flu, including fever, chills, body aches and headaches, and congestion*.  Also, it is available in unique quick-dissolving tablets that melts instantly in a child’s mouth.

Hyland’s also has help for parents with DEFENDTM Severe Cold + Flu, another natural product that helps relieve cold and flu symptoms without causing drowsiness or other side effects*. It contains no artificial flavors or dyes and dissolves in warm water.  DEFENDTM Severe Cold + Flu also has a great lemon-honey flavor that helps reduce the discomfort of aches, congestion, and fever.

Hyland’s products can help families get back on their feet—so they can get ready for spring!

*The uses for Hyland’s products are based on traditional homeopathic practice.  They have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.
