Tips for Keeping Kids Safe and Healthy During Monsoon Season

Maintain Their Dryness:

To keep dry, make sure your youngster has an umbrella or raincoat with them.
To avoid getting a cold, change out of your damp clothes right away.

Preserve Hygiene:

Promote frequent hand washing with soap, particularly after outdoor play and before meals.
Maintain clean, well-trimmed nails to avoid fungal infections.

Boost Your Defences: 

Serve a well-balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables, and foods that strengthen the immune system, such as yoghurt, almonds, and citrus fruits.
Make sure they stay hydrated by giving them lots of water—ideally boiled or filtered.

Wearing safe shoes:

To shield your feet from contaminated precipitation, use waterproof shoes or sandals.
When they get inside, properly wash and dry their feet.

Prevent Static Water:

To lessen the chance of contracting a waterborne illness, avoid playing in puddles or areas where there is standing water.
To prevent mosquitoes from breeding, look around you for any areas that may have standing water and remove it.

Prevent Insect Invasion:

Make sure windows and doors are screened, and use insect repellents.
To avoid mosquito bites, put on long sleeves and trousers for your youngster.

Remain Warm:

If the weather turns cold, provide warm clothes to prevent colds and the flu.
Make sure there is adequate ventilation and dryness in the living area.

Healthy Eating Practices:

To prevent foodborne infections, stay away from street food and choose home-cooked meals instead.
Produce should always be carefully cleaned before eating.

Keep Moving Inside:

When it’s raining a lot, keep the youngsters occupied indoors with crafts, board games, or reading.
Promote physical activity by holding dance classes or other indoor workouts.

Prepared for First Aid:

Have a basic first aid package on hand in case of minor illnesses or injuries.
Make sure they understand the fundamentals of first aid and safety.
