Get a Healthy Start on the School Year

By Lysol

The Back-to-School season means it’s also the cold and flu season. Are your kids armed with the proper knowledge and tools to fight the uninvited germs that can be found in the classroom? Help jump-start a healthy school year by instilling Healthy Habits in your children with these simple tips.

  • Healthy Snack Packs—Some children may be little bundles of energy, but are they getting the fuel they need from proper nutrition? As you plan school lunches, talk to your children about making the connection between good nutrition and healthy habits. Encourage them to investigate healthy foods that offer nutritional boosts and power!
  • Stock Up—More than 38 million school days missed each year due to common, preventable illnesses like the cold and flu. To make sure your child is in school learning and not in bed sick, it’s important to encourage your child’s teacher to not only clean surfaces around the classroom but to disinfect them. Help stock the classroom with disinfecting products, like Lysol Disinfecting Wipes, which are now eligible for Box Tops for Education redemption.
  • Plan Ahead—This week is Healthy Habits Week. Use this as your reminder to teach your children proper hand washing and sneezing techniques. Family activities that promote healthy habits and additional resources to use around the home during Healthy Habits Week can be found at
