Say Boo to the Flu

I feel like Flu season just ended and now its almost back! Yuck! Check out Say Boo to the Flu - a program created by Families Fighting Flu, the Visiting Nurses Association & The Clorox Company. The website has lots of great information for protecting your family from the flu this these tips for "Scaring Away" the flu.

· Wash Hands Frequently: Wash hands with warm water and soap at least 20 seconds.

· Disinfect Germ Hot Spots: Kids can touch up to 300 surfaces in 30 minutes, so disinfect the surfaces kids touch most frequently - like doorknobs, light switches, faucets or plastic toys.

· Do the Elbow Cough: Cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands to help prevent the spread of germs from touch.

· Follow Good Health Guidelines: Eat right, exercise, and get plenty of sleep to help boost your body's ability to fight the effects of colds and the flu.
