In autumn, the weather becomes more dryness, and the temperature difference between day and night is changing quietly. In this season changing season, children are more likely to have a cold and fever, and parents need to have more exercise.
Why do children tend to get sick during the season?
From autumn to winter, although the temperature will not suddenly drop, but the temperature difference between morning and evening in a little distance. This is the most horrible change you can’t detect, like boiling frogs in warm water, which gradually makes you lose your awareness of temperature changes. This is very easy to be attacked by viruses without being aware of themselves, thus getting sick.
Two, the child’s resistance is weak.
In addition to changes in temperature, children are also less resistant than adults and are more vulnerable to epidemic diseases, especially from more than a week to the start of the school season, increasing the chance for groups to infect each other and transmit various epidemic viruses. Mothers must take precautions against epidemic infectious diseases and vaccinate their children in time.
So, what should we do to make children less sick during the season?
1. eat less frozen foods.
In this season, we should prevent the disease from entering the mouth. Although it is autumn, the heat and heat of the day will make the child sweat.
At this time, their favorite is to open the refrigerator, eat ice cream and drink cold drinks, so that it is easy to catch cold, diarrhea, colds and other symptoms. Parents should check the children’s frozen foods and try to make them eat less.
2. pay attention to personal hygiene.
Children skipping around, playing with toys on their stomachs, coming back from school without washing their hands and so on will be infected with a large number of bacteria and viruses, if not washed in time, it is easy to enter the body to cause disease.
As parents, we should let children wash their hands for the first time. It is not only beneficial to children’s health, but also can play a positive role in the cultivation of children’s good hygiene habits.

Children often play with a sweat, and then hold a glass of ice water to grunt into the stomach, which is more susceptible to cold, parents can not take it lightly.
It is best to prepare a thermos cup for the child and remind him to drink warm water in the thermos cup.
5. ensure adequate sleep.
