Remember to encourage healthy habits to help avoid the spread of germs.

Lysol Air Sanitizer

Students are officially back to school, and so is increased exposure to viruses and bacteria. Try refreshing your sanitizing and disinfecting routine at home and practicing healthy habits with your kids. Here are a few tips that can help your family avoid the spread of illness-causing viruses and bacteria: 

Utilize Lysol Air Sanitizer  

Introducing Lysol Air Sanitizer, the first antimicrobial product approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to effectively kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria1 and eliminate odors2 in the air when used correctly. Traditional air fresheners only freshen the air, and traditional disinfectant sprays kill viruses and bacteria on surfaces, but Lysol Air Sanitizer is a first-of-its-kind product in the air-care category that is proven to sanitize the air.  

Boost Immunity With Nutrition 

Eating a well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins and dairy can give your child’s immune system the strength it needs to ward off potential illnesses.3 When your children are enjoying their after-school snack or family dinner, remember to reflect all of these food groups in their meals and remind your child the importance of making healthy choices. 

Reinforce Regular Handwashing  

When your child comes home from a long day of fun and learning at school, it’s important to remind them that germs and bacteria can live on the surfaces that they touch frequently like doorknobs, tables, chairs, toys, etc. Encourage them to wash their hands regularly using soap and water and make sure they are washing for at least 20 seconds.4 

As the school year unfolds and your child immerses themselves in learning, friendships and experiences, remember that a healthy body supports a healthy mind. These tips can help your family have a protected and happy school year ahead!
