It’s almost back to school time in my house and staying healthy during back to school is on my mind! I know it’s the middle of July, but my kids are ready. They get so bored during the summer and miss all their friends. I’m already getting notifications about meet the teacher days and laptop deployment.
They go back to school at the beginning of August and I can get a lot of supplies they need without getting in the crowds by using Walmart Online Grocery.
I’m not sure about you, but I’m definitely looking for ways to save myself a little time and I have been using Walmart Online Grocery a lot. It has been super convenient this summer because who wants to drag three kids to the store to shop!
You can use the app on your phone on do it online. It saves your favorite items so you an shop really fast. You can drive right up and they will load it right in your car! Woohoo!
Staying Healthy During Back to School
You may be wondering why you should make a wellness kit. Well, I’ll tell you! I like to be prepared and I have a stomach bug kit that I keep in the house and it has been a life saver. I make sure to have extra items that keep my family healthy.
How to create a back to school wellness kit.
A wellness kit is exactly what it sounds like- items you need for you and your family to stay healthy. These are items that you should always have on hand to help prevent illness.
What you should add to your wellness kit.
You know you will need a bunch of these boxes for back to school so go ahead and stock up. I love having extra Kleenex around. They are super soft and Kleenex is one of the softest around.
- Kleenex® Brand Wet Wipes™ Gentle Clean for Hands and Face (Flip-top pack, 56 wipes)
These are great because these are thick with no harsh chemicals. You can find these in the tissue aisle.
Pick out a multivitamin that your kids will enjoy. The gummies are always a good taste.
You can get a pill or powder form. I love the powder. I can add it to the kids morning smoothies and they can’t tell at all. This will help with any stomach issues that could come up.
- Essential Oils
I love lavender to help relax for anxiety or going to sleep and lemon to help your kids with studying.
- Reusable Water Bottles
The more H2O, the better, Let your kids pick out a water bottle and it will encourage them to drink more. It seems like a lot of schools let the kids have a water bottle at their desk now too.
- Hand Sanitizer
Sometimes it hard to get my kids to wash their hands after school, but I can always chase them down and give them a squirt to remove any school germs they bring home.
- Lice Prevention Spray
I know no one want to talk about lice, but it happens and giving your kids a couple of sprays every morning helps keep it away.
