Cold and flu season is here early and that means you need to be prepared to fight it off, treat, and prevent which means you need to make sure you have what you need to survive comfortably. Nobody likes waking up feeling sick and being completely unprepared to handle the symptoms, I don't think any of us like shopping while we are sick. So stock up before it's too late and here are my favorite items:
- Ester-C® is a unique and patented form of Calcium Ascorbate, which is created when ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is buffered with calcium.
- Ester-C® takes Calcium ascorbate and, using a proprietary, water-based manufacturing process, produces a pH neutral product that contains active Vitamin C metabolites (that do not exist in any other form of Vitamin C, including Calcium ascorbate).
- These natural metabolites provide quick absorption.
- Ester-C® also functions biologically like other forms of Vitamin C, providing benefits for skin, joint and vision health, cardiovascular support, antioxidant protection and immune system wellness.

I was very pleased when my son got sick a few years ago to see that Gravol Kids can be given to children at the age of 2. When you have a puking child it is amazing to know there is something you can do about it. And of course regular adult gravolworksgreat but it makes you super drowsy, they have a few other kinds that I haven't tried yet that are supposed to be non-drowsy.

Those are all the products I like to keep on hand during cold and flu season, another item is a humidifier and there are millions to choose from depending on your budget. I bought my Sunbeam humidifier for $20 and it does the job in a small room.
Hand washing is the best thing you can teach your kids to keep germs away and here is a neat way to show your kids how wash for the right amount of time:
Cover your child's hands in cinnamon to show him/her all the germs that could be on their hands. Now have them wash it off until every "germ" is gone. This is a neat way to show children just how long it takes to wash the germs away!
