Little Sprouts & Educators

Image of super heroKeeping children healthy can be an ongoing challenge with the prevalence of germs and illness in a variety of environments. An understanding of common childhood illnesses and how to prevent them can help manage children’s health. Vaccinations are one important defense against childhood illness. A healthy diet and regular exercise are also effective for keeping children healthy. Cleanliness and frequent hand-washing are important defense measures for stopping the spread of germs.
