Why are back-to-school illnesses so common? Well, schools are like little germ factories. Classrooms can be crowded and kids’ hygiene can be questionable (to put it kindly). Plus, whenever there is a change of seasons (from summer to fall in this case), illnesses tend to be more common as well. How can you increase the chances that you and your children will remain healthy over the next few months?
You don’t have to be a committed vegetarian or vegan to enjoy more plants in your diet. And you don’t need to be in poor health to eat a salad before dinner. Adding more veggies and less processed foods to your diet is definitely a recipe for better health. Just take it meal by meal.
