  • Funny time to be asking that when summer is almost here. In the USA at least.
    Wear coats, hats, gloves, boots outside. and wash hands often.

  • Wash hands, dress warmly when going out, use Germ-x in public places where they might put their hands (grocery carts etc), keep away from sick kids or people, keep your home clean/

  • Plenty of vitamin C and vitamin D ... will protect from colds and flu (my husband gets the flu every year and the rest of us do not , even though we are exposed to him ... he is the only one who does not supplement with vitamins in our household). Low levels of vitamin D in winter (due to lack of sunshine) is one of the main reasons for the flu. Also, keep their immune systems strong by increasing their probiotics and/or yogurt consumption, eliminating caffeine and all junk food. Yes, wash hands, but you don't have to be fanatical about it ... a strong immune system will protect you from germs you come into contact with.
