There is a lot to do around supporting kids through this time. You can offer a drink of herbal tea that boosts immunity, and calms the system, like chamomile or lemon balm. Make sure they get enough sleep, and cut back on refined sugars and juices. Getting loads of exercise when they aren’t in school will boost immunity, improve sleep, and help their brains perform better on tests.
