DAILY HEALTH

NUTRITION

Parents, please help your student to eat a healthy breakfast before coming to school or encourage them to eat breakfast in the cafeteria before school. Not eating breakfast is one of the main reason’s I see student in the clinic due to headaches, stomach aches and feeling dizzy.

Eating breakfast is one of the most important things to do to prepare for the school day. Some examples of quick and easy breakfast menus are: bagels, peanut butter, muffins, juices, yogurts, fruit, and granola bars. Proper nutrition, regular exercise and good hygiene habits help us all feel better, and help to reduce the frequency of unpleasant illnesses.

Hydrating all day with water is important in keeping healthy. Most of us don’t drink enough water.Many children come to the clinic due to headaches which is the main symptom of dehydration.  After PE the children are very dehydrated and need more water than a few sips from the water fountain. Please have your child bring to school each day a water bottle.

HYGIENE

Hand washing is one of the single most important ways to decrease the spread of infectious illnesses. Hands should be washed after using the restroom, after sneezing and coughing, and before preparing food. Hot soapy water should be used.

Personal hygiene such as showering, changing clothes daily and applying deodorant are all important during the adolescent years as children’s bodies are growing and maturing.

SLEEP/EXERCISE

Regular and adequate sleep are important in staying healthy and ready to learn. It is recommended that your student gets 10 hours of sleep each night in order to do their best in school.

Regular exercise is a necessary daily requirement. We must get moving in order to live healthy productive lives. Make exercise a fun family time.
