Healthy Kids: Back to School

Back to school is just around the corner and we want our kids to be as healthy and rested as they can be for the school days ahead.  Children should get a goodnight’s sleep the night before school begins and should have a well-balanced, nutritious breakfast to keep their brains healthy and their energy levels up.  Below are a few tips for healthy kids and the start of a great new school year.  For more back to school tips, check out our Pinterest board for ideas and products.  


We all know kids should be well-rested for the school day, establishing a reasonable bedtime and bedtime routine are important.  Sleep deprivation can cause kids to have trouble concentrating, experience memory issues, affect their mood, and actually cause them to act more hyper even when they are sleepy.  Staying active during the day and limiting electronics at least an hour before bed can help relax kids and promote sleep.  Snow Lotus Child Chiller is an aromatherapy blend for a kid’s room to promote relaxation and calm. 

Immunity – Keep those sniffles away

Kids can be exposed to a lot of things during the school year; colds, viruses, and environmental toxins.  Building up their immune system to keep them healthy and strong should include a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.  Douglas Labs Vita Kids Immune is a formula which includes zinc, vitamin A, blueberry, elderberry, and honeysuckle -- all of which can help support normal immune function.  Cold coming on?  Gaia Kids offers a homeopathic formula, KidsDefense Herbal Drops, which support a rapid immune response.

Brain Health

Children’s brains are still developing and control not only their thinking and learning, but their diet can affect their brains ability to focus, remember, regulate their mood, and even their digestion.  Foods that can help a kid’s brain stay sharp all day are eggs, greens, fish, nuts, seeds, oatmeal, apples, plums, and turmeric.  Gaia Kids Attention Daily Herbal Drops is a homeopathic formula which can help support concentration, focus, memory, and alertness.


Overall nutrition is crucial to a growing child’s mind and body. A balanced diet including fruits and vegetables is a great start. Sometimes because of picky eating, food allergies, or dietary restrictions; it can be difficult to meet all nutritional needs. A Multivitamin and essential fatty acid can help bridge the gap so your kid can be healthy and ready to take on the school day.
