Fall is a wonderful time in Arizona. Although we don’t get the changing leaves (except in Northern AZ) we do get a reprieve of the Hades like temperatures that make Arizona so…pleasant? We finally start spending a bit more time outdoors. Pumpkin patches are visited and families plan Halloween costumes and Thanksgiving gatherings. Unfortunately, with all the fun that fall brings, it also brings and increase of illnesses. With 5 kids, it seems like sometimes we spend the entire Fall passing along one illness after another.
I was provided with samples and compensation in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Follow these tips and perhaps you will have some success staying healthy in the fall.
Use Fitness Fight Back
Keeping active and regularly exercising helps keep your immune system, as well as your body healthy. Weather permitting, take walks and hikes as a family. Visit an apple orchard and pick apples together. When the weather doesn’t allow it, have an indoor dance party or pop in an exercise tape (kids love trying to follow along with the instructor).
This one is always a hard one for anyone with kids. Sleep is your body’s way of recharging it’s battery. You would never let your cellphone battery die, so give yourself an extra charge and get enough sleep.
Wash, wash, wash!
As simple as it sounds, it’s so important to wash your hands. Use soap and warm water for at least 30 seconds.. My favorite tip a nurse friend told me was singing “Happy Birthday” while you wash your hands to make sure you take enough time. Definitely a song your children will know!
Vitamins and Minerals
Your body needs the right kind of fuel to keep running. Making sure your diet is full of healthy fruits and vegetables is great for staying healthy in the fall. But we all know kids won’t always eat those fruits and veggies. Luckily, we have vitamins available on the market to help get kids (and adults) some of those essential vitamins and minerals they may be lacking in their diet. When it comes to selecting the best multivitaman for your family, look no further than Rainbow Light.

I have been completely impressed with Rainbow Light’s children’s products. My girls love the taste of the Gummy Bear Essentials, and love that they get more than one! I am totally excited to try out the Prenatal Precious Gems for my next pregnancy, seriously gummy prenatals? Maybe I’ll actually remember to take them! My littlest enjoys the crunchy sweet/sour mix of the kid’s NutriStars. It’s become one of her favorite parts of her breakfast routine. I was super excited to see that Rainbow Light’s products are gluten free and contain probiotics.
