Flu Fighting Products For Kids

Unlike the seasonal flu, this H1N1 strain didn't lessen over the summer months; instead, swine flu continues to spread. Check out 6 new products that will help prevent your kids from contracting the H1N1 Swine flu virus.

Flu-fighting qualities of salt water

Gargling with salt water or using it to clean out your nose and sinus cavities is thought to prevent the proliferation and spread of the flu virus.

If your kids use mouthwash for cavities, try to encourage them to also gargle at least once a day with salt water. Simple, easy and effective! Yes, they may balk at the taste at first, but if this simple method can prevent them from getting the flu it is worth it! 

You can also try using Ocean for Kids Premium Nasal Spray ($4.49 at Walgreens) to keep their nasal passages clear. A DIY option would be to swab the insides of their nose with a cotton ball soaked in salt water to help ward off the flu.

Oohhh I really like the Celly Smelly's. They remind me of a Clorox disinfectant wipe, only for kids! I'm definitely going to be giving my kids a few of these per day to make sure they stay clean and sanitized. I definitely don't want them being exposed to germs and getting sick this year. Thanks!
