Take steps to prevent the flu and other illness
It’s Halloween and the flu season is here! Keeping hands clean by washing them with soap and water is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year for the best protection against influenza throughout flu season.
Keep your bite healthy
Brush with fluoride toothpaste. Floss every day. Don’t go batty for sugary treats.
Don’t look a fright this Halloween! Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of long-lasting diseases and conditions.
Treat yourself to fruits and veggies
Don’t fill up on junk this Halloween. Treat yourself to yummy fruits and vegetables. They make a great healthy snack to serve for Halloween parties.
Make sure costumes fit well to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls. Check out a fun coloring book. Color Me Safe! from CDC tells the rhyming story of the “Safe Family,” who take steps to protect themselves from injury at home, on the road, and at play.
